What Are the Different Types of Dental Braces?

While orthodontics has advanced, many patients will often ask which type of braces would best benefit them. There are currently many options to choose between the different types of dental braces according to each need. While getting a professional opinion is the best way to determine what type of brace is best for you, this article will break down the different types of dental braces that exist. 

What Are the Different Types of Braces?

Braces are distinguished by the type of material from which they are manufactured. Taken together, those include:

Which Dental Brace Is The Most Efficient?

The most efficient are the metal brackets because they fall less and transmit the forces better to the teeth, which helps to make the treatment shorter, although its negative side is that they are less aesthetic.

A considerable advantage is that it is usually the one that solves the most crooked tooth problems, besides being the most economical. It is the most recommended for faster treatments in case you have to close spaces between the teeth, correct a bad bite, or reverse crooked teeth.

What Dental Brace is the Best Looking?

The (or porcelain) ceramic brackets and brackets sapphire are more aesthetic. These have in their negative aspect, which can lead to more extensive treatments. Ceramics are more fragile than other types of orthodontics, such as sapphire brackets and, of course, metal brackets. Another option is to wear brackets on the inner side of the teeth, which is known as lingual braces or internal brackets. In this case the brackets can be made of stainless steel or gold.

The main advantage of the lingual brackets is that, if any stain occurs, it will remain on the hidden side of the tooth. In addition, and with respect to Invisalign, for example, it solves better problems with rotated teeth or at different heights. On the negative side, hygiene is more difficult than in other types of brackets and the treatment can be extended longer.

What's Invisalign?

In the case of Invisalign, it is best not to be seen, and that can be a huge advantage, especially for adults. Another feature is that they can be placed and removed at will, so dental hygiene is much more complete. But if Invisalign is not used throughout the day (except for eating and brushing teeth), the treatment can be very extensive. In addition, there are certain problems of rotation or malocclusion, which this type of orthodontics cannot solve.

What Option is Right For Me?

Each type of bracket and technique, has its particularities and, depending on the case, your dentist will recommend the best results, taking into account the aesthetic requirements of each person, as well as the type of problem to be solved. Depending on the choice you make, the price of dental treatment and its duration will vary.

Amin Salvi Dental
Is Now Open!

The last few months have been challenging for all of us. We have missed seeing you, chatting with you, sharing stories with you and laughing with you. We are SO excited to finally be able to invite you back to our office!

As you already know, Amin Salvi Dental does not cut corners on safety and technology. We have always prided ourselves in exceeding the recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for infection control measures. During this closure, we decided to go above and beyond that by adding further safety measures, which have been outlined below. The comfort and safety of our patients, of our team members, and of our own families remain our top priority.

  • All essential paperwork (including a COVID-19 screening form) along with financial agreements are to be done prior to your appointment. We will be texting and emailing the links for the forms to be filled out at home or on your mobile device. If you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath or feel ill, please reschedule your appointment and call your physician.
  • When you arrive for your appointment, please wait in the car and text or call the office. We will inform you when to enter the office so we can maintain social distancing protocols
  • When entering the office, it is mandatory to wear a mask or face covering. Although county guidelines are not as strict, we maintain this requirement for the safety of everyone. Due to a worldwide shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) we cannot provide masks. Should you require one, we will charge you $1 for the mask.
  • Patients must arrive to their appointment alone without family/friends. A single guardian will be allowed for minors, elderly and those with special needs or requirements.
  • We will be taking your temperature when arriving to our office and recording this in your records.

Here are a few additional things we are doing to keep everyone safe and healthy:

  • We have installed air purification systems in the main operatories
  • We have installed sneeze guards at the check-in and check-out areas. We request that when you are required to talk to the front desk administration, you stand behind those.
  • Before appointments, we will use a medical peroxide pre-rinse which has been proven to help kill virus particles

We will have new scheduling guidelines

You will be hearing from us shortly as we are rescheduling routine hygiene and treatment for everyone. As you can imagine, we have a large backlog of cancelled appointments so we appreciate your patience through this process.

If you have any immediate concerns, we request not to call the office but text us at the office number or email us at

Due to the new protocols for physical distancing in the office, we may have limited availability of appointments. Due to this we require a minimum 48 hour notice to cancel or reschedule your appointment to avoid a cancellation fee. This allows other patients, who have been waiting, to be seen. Please be courteous to others.

For many procedures we will also be requiring a reservation fee in advance. This fee will be applied to your deductible or co-pay for the treatment and is not an additional fee of any kind.

We look forward to seeing all of you and catching up on the activities you have been doing to keep busy during this downtime!
