Orthodontics is concerned with the study and treatment of malocclusions (incorrect bites), which may be a result of tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw relationships, or both. Orthodontic treatment can correct dental displacement only, or can deal with the control and modification of facial growth.
Metal brackets are the traditional braces. In the beginning, they may irritate your gums, but after a few weeks, when your cheeks get “adapted” they are not a problem anymore. Metal brackets tend to be less expensive than other types of brackets. In addition, you can make them colourful with modules that come on a rainbow of colours.
Ceramic brackets are made of composite materials, which are strong and generally do not stain. Adults like to choose ceramic because they “blend in” with the teeth and are less noticeable than metal. They blend in with most teeth, particularly if they are not perfectly white and they are not very noticeable at a distance or in photos. Contrary to what you may have heard, ceramic brackets do not usually break or dislodge from your teeth. They are very strong and stay on as well as metal brackets.
