Types of braces treatment

At Peel Orthodontics, we offer different types of braces to our patients. This gives you the option to choose the best appliance for your teeth and budget. During your consultation, your Specialist Orthodontist will recommend the appliance that they believe best suits your orthodontic need.

For any Braces treatment, you should always read and follow the label and the instructions of your treating orthodontist.

Traditional metal braces

We like to use the latest orthodontic technology at Peel Orthodontics. Therefore, we offer self-ligating braces; the modern version of traditional metal braces.

Traditional metal braces, commonly referred to as “train tracks'' are made up of three components: metal brackets, metal archwires and small elastic bands, with each component working together to move the teeth to their desired position. Whilst this option is effective, self-ligating braces take our patients' treatments one step further. Self-ligating braces are more technically savvy with the archwire programmed to respond to the movement of the teeth, giving you a more effective treatment, accurate results and faster treatment times.

Clear braces

Using the same methods as traditional metal braces, clear braces provide patients with a more discreet treatment option. Made from ceramic, the brackets blend in with the natural colour of your teeth, making them far less noticeable than metal brackets. A further advantage of clear braces is the ceramic brackets tend to be much smaller, making them more comfortable to wear.

At Peel Orthodontics, we recommend clear braces to many of our patients who are looking for a more discreet but highly effective orthodontic appliance.
