What Are


Despite the popularity of plastic aligners, traditional fixed braces remain the better option in complex orthodontic cases. For instance, fixed braces can correct severe teeth crowding more effectively and can straighten teeth of different heights.

Not Just For Looks

Braces consist of brackets, arch wire and ligature elastic bands. A special glue bonds the brackets to the centre of each tooth. Wire connects the brackets together to progressively reposition the teeth.

The elastic bands hold the arch wire and brackets together.

Fixed braces are far more discreet and comfortable nowadays, and clear ceramic braces offer a more aesthetic alternative to metal braces.


What Are The Benefits of metal braces?

Metal braces are still a popular choice and the most affordable type of braces. They’re now less conspicuous and are highly durable, offering excellent control over tooth movement.

However, metal braces are the most noticeable appliance used by orthodontists, and more likely to cause discomfort than clear ceramic braces. They can also create a metallic taste in your mouth.

What Are The Benefits of clear aligners?

Clear braces are similar in size and shape to their metal counterparts but have ceramic brackets that blend with teeth. You can get tooth-coloured wires to make clear braces even less conspicuous.

On the downside, clear braces cost more than metal braces and don’t move teeth as quickly. They’re also slightly less durable and more prone to breaking off, and may stain more easily.

What Should I Pick?

Both metal and clear ceramic fixed braces can address problems that plastic aligners can’t rectify.

Depending on treatment requirements, clear braces may be a better choice if you want a more aesthetically appealing solution to avoid self-consciousness during your orthodontic therapy.

On the other hand, metal braces are more robust and more cost-effective, and can typically straighten your teeth faster.
