Types of Braces

We provide our Cincinnati, OH orthodontic patients various braces for adults and kids. Dr. Martinez and our team believe you should love the braces you’re in. After all, you’re going to be spending likely over a year with them. No matter which braces you choose, they will all help provide you with a beautiful smile at the end of treatment. Dr. Martinez and our excellent team of highly trained orthodontic specialists will help make sure of it by guiding you through not only treatment but which braces might work best for your treatment plan. Here are the types of braces our Cincinnati, OH orthodontist offers to his patients.


Metal Braces


This is what people generally think of when they think braces. Classic metal brackets with multicolored rubber bands and wire. While modern braces may look the same as their older brethren, modern braces are smaller, more durable, and more comfortable than ever before.


 Clear Braces


 Clear braces use almost the same treatment process as metal braces with one key difference. Clear braces are made with a nearly invisible composite material that matches the color of your teeth. This makes them much more discreet, perfect for adults getting braces who are concerned about feeling self-conscious. There are a couple downsides to clear braces, however, the composite material isn’t as tough as stainless steel and there is a chance of discoloration. You will also have a thin metal wire that spans the entirety of your mouth like traditional braces.


Invisalign


Invisalign clear aligner system is by far the top contender for discreet, comfortable, orthodontic treatment. Unlike clear and metal braces there are no brackets to speak of. Instead, Invisalign clear aligners cover your teeth with a custom fit system that gently moves your teeth to their desired position. If you are looking to straighten your teeth discreetly then invisalign is right for you. Invisalign is not right for everyone however, in some more severe cases Invisalign won't straighten teeth effectively.


Gold Braces


Like we said earlier, you should enjoy your braces since they’re going to be with you for over a year. Gold braces have the same functionality and durability of metal braces but with a bit more style. Take your treatment to the next level with 24-karat gold plated brackets.
