Dental Braces in Edmonton
Uptown Dental Centre
Our Braces Will Make You Smile
Getting braces no longer means having a mouth full of shiny metal that prompted patients of yesteryear to dread or avoid treatment altogether. There are options for everyone needing braces now, including traditional metal brackets, plastic brackets, and ceramic brackets. Even the wires used in modern braces utilise new technology that can speed up and reduce the pain of the treatment process. Two of the most common braces we use are metal and ceramic:
Metal Braces – Traditional metal braces are still the most common type of braces, they are more comfortable and economical today than ever before. High grade stainless steel metal braces straighten your teeth using wires and metal brackets attached to the front of the tooth. To add some fun and color during treatment, colored elastics (rubber bands) are available for a more personalized smile.
Ceramic (Clear) Braces – Ceramic braces appear less visible on your teeth than metal braces. The ceramic brackets are made of a clear material which makes them quite popular with our teen and younger adult patients who tend to be more self-conscious during treatment. While they are visually less prominent, ceramic braces require more attention to oral hygiene as the brackets can absorb stains from some food and beverages. Keeping your ceramic braces clean is of utmost importance to maintain this lower visibility appliance.
