Types of Orthodontic Braces

There are two primary types of dental braces: fixed and removable.

Fixed braces are also called traditional braces. They usually consist of metal wires and brackets. This type of brace is suitable for patients with major bite issues. Some of the most common types of fixed braces are metal braces, special fixed appliances, and fixed space maintainers.

If you are not comfortable with fixed braces, your dentist may recommend a removable brace, depending on your orthodontic issue. Removable braces can be made of plastic elements and wires. Among other types of braces, removable braces are the most comfortable to wear as they can be easily taken in and out when eating or cleaning your teeth. Examples of removable braces include clear aligners, removable space maintainers, jaw repositioning appliances, and palatal retainers.
