Types of Braces

So you need braces - or your kid does

Traditional Metal Braces

An upgrade on the old-fashioned way

Modern traditional braces are smaller and more comfortable than they used to be. With options to pick your own elastic colors, traditional braces are an excellent choice for correcting your smile.

Clear Braces

Braces that look like your teeth. With color match technology and everything

These braces work just like their traditional counterparts, but blend in with your teeth more. Using a tooth colored ceramic material, your braces will be less visible to people around you. Your friends won’t even be able to tell.

Self-Ligating Braces

Braces without the bands. For the no fuss kind of person

Self-ligating braces, or tie-free braces don’t require an elastic tie (this is the colorful band on traditional braces). Instead, a metal or ceramic clip attaches to brackets. They’re easier to clean and in some cases allow for more efficient tooth movement. Common brands are Damon and Smart Clip. McComb Orthodontics offers Self-Ligating braces in metal and clear options.
