FORT WORTH, Texas, June 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — In an
interview with Gott Entertainment, Dr. Brian Dugoni said that dental braces are
one of many ways to treat crooked teeth or bite alignment issues. Your regular
dentist will refer you to an orthodontist for an evaluation if he or she thinks
you might need orthodontic treatment. If braces are the right solution for you,
there are many types to choose from.

Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal is still the most commonly used type of braces. These
braces are made of stainless steel brackets and wires and are generally the
least expensive choice for patients.
While metal braces are the most noticeable type of braces, modern versions
are much smaller than you might remember. The idea of a “metal mouth” better
describes earlier versions of orthodontics and no longer applies to today’s
smaller brackets and wires. Kids and teens also enjoy the colored bands that can
be put on the brackets, which lets them pick a color that fits their
Clear braces became popular in the early 1980s as a cosmetic alternative to
metal. The brackets are made of tooth colored ceramic or plastic so that they
are less noticeable, but in all other ways they function similarly to
traditional metal braces. Tooth colored or metal wires may be used in
combination with the clear brackets depending on the patient and the
Clear braces are generally more expensive than metal braces, and can stain
easily if the patient doesn’t properly care for them. But many people enjoy them
for their aesthetic qualities that make having traditional braces less
These special braces are placed on the back of the teeth instead of on the
front. They were invented in the 1970s and were historically unpopular in the
United States. But in recent years these braces have become more available to
patients as technology has improved the way they feel.
While these braces are completely invisible from the outside, they can be
difficult to clean and can be uncomfortable for patients. Adjustments are
generally more challenging and take longer than with traditional braces, and
they are not suitable for treating severe cases.
Clear aligners became available to the public in 2000. It is a modern
alternative to traditional bracket and wire braces treatment that is available
for some patients, depending on the severity of their issues.
The clear aligner system consists of a series of custom, removable trays that
are changed every few weeks to slowly move the teeth into a proper position. The
trays are made of clear plastic and conform exactly to the teeth based on molds
of the patient’s mouth.
Adults and teens enjoy the almost invisibility of clear aligners as well as
their ability to remove the trays for eating. However the overall treatment
process can take longer than with traditional braces and this form of braces is
not available for children. In addition, clear aligners are generally only
appropriate for milder cases. More severe cases will require treatment with
traditional types of metal or clear braces.
