Types of Braces

Options for Every Smile

The days when there was just one choice for straightening your teeth are over. Now we have braces options to suit children, teens and adults. Once we examine your mouth and determine your needs, we can help you pick the right type of braces for your smile. Here’s what’s on the menu at Palo Alto Orthodontics:

Metal Braces

These are the most common type. They’re actually much smaller, more attractive and more comfortable than ever. Made from high-grade stainless steel, metal braces are durable and are a great option for kids, teens and adults. A lot of patients love having the opportunity to customize their braces by choosing the color of their elastics.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces, sometimes called clear braces, are made of a translucent ceramic material that blends in with the teeth making them much less noticeable than their stainless steel counterparts. They tend to work best for older teens and adults and are popular thanks to their cosmetic appeal.

Self-Ligating Braces

Self-ligating braces don’t use elastics or ties. Instead, light “shape memory” wires run through lower friction brackets and are held in place with a slide mechanism for faster results and increased comfort. The system applies gentle, biologically sensible forces for more efficient tooth movement and enhanced facial harmony. These streamlined braces are aesthetically pleasing, easier to clean, require fewer adjustments and office visits and will get you the smile of your dreams in less time.

Dr. Yoo is the best. My 8-year old daughter had work done for 14 months and each visit was made a pleasure by her and her outstanding staff. I cannot recommend Dr Yoo more highly.
