Types of Braces

Orthodontic braces help your child look and feel better when they smile. Your friendly orthodontist will help your child choose the right type of braces for them.

Orthodontic braces have come a long way over the years and there are more options available than ever before. Little House of Smiles will help you decide on the perfect type of braces for your child’s smile. Each type has unique benefits and we will work with you to learn about them all.

Traditional Braces

Traditional braces are made of stainless steel and are still the most common type of braces used today. However, metal braces have advanced significantly over the years and are more comfortable than they’ve ever been. By using archwires and brackets, this type of braces will straighten teeth over a period of time. You also have the option to add colored bands to traditional braces to personalize your child’s smile.

Clear Braces

Traditional braces are made of stainless steel and are still the most common type of braces used today. However, metal resembles the color of teeth so they will be virtually invisible. For aesthetic reasons, many parents choose clear braces on the top front teeth if they don’t want the appearance of traditional braces on their child.

Clear Aligners

Clear teeth aligners are much different than traditional braces and can offer many benefits. The acrylic trays can also be considered removable braces since your child can take them out to eat anything they want. Plus, brushing and flossing aren’t nearly as time-intensive with clear teeth aligners since your child won’t have to brush around and between metal brackets. Teeth aligners are popular options for the right patients and are options worth pursuing a straighter smile.
