Every patient that comes to our dental office has different concerns and motivations regarding their dental situation and treatment expectations. It is important that as professionals we are able to understand them, so we offer the treatment that best suits each case.
The brackets are the appliances that we bond over the teeth during orthodontic treatment, They allow us to transmit forces over the teeth so they can be placed in a correct position.
There are several types of brackets, which we can use in different types of orthodontic treatments.
Each of these brackets has different characteristics and is better suited to one type of treatment, That is why it is important that we know them.
Based on the material they are made of, we can divide the brackets into 2 different groups or types.
These are the brackets that most people picture when they hear the word “braces” However, modern brackets are smaller and less noticeable than the braces that we were used in the past.
This type of braces is typically the least expensive option while being very effective, and is one of the most common types of braces in use today.
