Your dentist will know what appliance is best for your particular problem, but the patient often has a choice. Braces generally come in three varieties:

  • Brackets
  • Lingual
  • Bands

The most popular type are brackets, metal or plastic, that are bonded to teeth and are far less noticeable. The "lingual" type of braces are brackets that attach to the back of teeth, hidden from view.  Bands are the traditional type that cover most of your teeth with metal bands that wrap around the teeth.  All types of braces use wires to move the teeth to the desired position.
