The most traditional option and the cheapest, metal braces have been transforming patients' smiles for decades and are highly effective. Modern braces are lightweight, comfortable and work quickly. The stigma attached to braces has all but gone, and famous faces such as Tom Cruise, Gwen Stefani, Emma Watson and even Prince Harry have all sported them at one point. Braces have even become something of a fashion trend.
Metal braces can be customized, which makes them a great choice for kids. The brackets can be produced in a favorite color or even in a rainbow or multicolored design, so children (and adults) can express their personalities and create a personal look. The tracks are made of lightweight wire, and metal braces are designed to be easy to look after while you're wearing them. Heat-reactive wires make the straightening process as fast as possible, and you shouldn't find yourself wearing them for long before you start to see real results.
Getting Your Braces On
If you've got a little more money to spare and if you want a more cosmetically pleasing option, Invisalign braces might be right for you. Instead of traditional braces, this pioneering system involves fitting a series of mouth guards around the teeth, which cannot be seen and which are removable. A different sized guard is fitted every week or two, and slowly your teeth are pulled into line.
Invisalign is offered by our orthodontists, and can achieve amazing results. It is important that you wear your braces all the time: having the option to remove them can be tempting. It's okay to take them out for a special occasion, but if you get into the habit of not wearing them you won't see any effect. Follow the instructions that your orthodontist gives you and keep up with your treatment: you'll be glad that you did when you've got the smile you've always wanted.
Ceramic braces have varying levels of transparency. You can have braces that have been specifically made to match the color of your teeth. You can also have clear ceramic braces. This makes them less visible than the traditional metallic braces. Ceramic braces do not stain. The wire that connects ceramic braces is usually coated with a material whose color resembles the color of the teeth. The results that you are going to get from these braces will be the same as the results that you will get from the traditional braces.
Braces for Adults
Types of Braces for Adults
Getting braces as an adult is extremely common these days. There is no reason you should not have straight teeth especially as you are in the prime years of your life. Confidence grows with straight teeth, so there are huge benefits for adults getting their teeth straightened with braces.
Braces for Children
The Benefits of Braces for Children
Braces for children have the advantage of correcting skeletal issues while the body is still growing. Girls finish about 90% of their bone growth by age fourteen, and boys by about age 16. Jaw discrepancies are fairly common in children and preteens. This includes size differences between the upper low and jaws, as well as abnormalities of alignment. It’s often best to correct these problems between ages seven and ten. It’s also easier for misaligned teeth to be corrected while the child is still growing, once all of the permanent teeth have come in. During childhood, the teeth can move more easily through the bone, speeding up the process of having braces and creating results that remain more stable over time.

Damon System Braces
Damon System - How they work.
Damon system braces is an orthodontic system that helps to pull or push teeth to straighten them. They are fixed orthodontic passive self-ligating braces that use the principle of low friction mechanics to get the end result. Created by Dr. Dwight Damon, the unique aspect about Damon braces is a slide mechanism that keeps the binding and friction to a minimum unlike as in traditional braces. The resultant stress on the teeth is less and the braces move the teeth into their desired position along a prescribed path.
