• The Many Types of Braces Available in Battle Ground WA

  • What comes to mind when you think about braces? For many people large metal brackets and gangly wires come to mind. Although braces do typically consist of metal and wires, braces have also come a long ways over the years and there are now many options to choose from.

    Event traditional, or metal braces have changed. Modern versions of braces are now smaller and not as noticeable as they used to be. These new braces are also more functional as well. Heat-activated arch wires use your body heat to actually aide in moving your teeth faster and with less pain. You can even get color added to your braces, but that will make them more noticeable.

    Ceramic braces are another style of braces that have become popular. They are the same basic style and size as traditional braces, but they are much less noticeable because they are clear or the same color as your teeth. In fact, some even include wires that are clear or tooth-colored to really help hide the braces.

    Lingual braces are the same as metal braces but they are placed on the inside of your teeth so as to hide the braces and give the appearance of having no braces at all.
