Types of Braces

Types of Braces

Traditional Braces

More comfortable than ever before, traditional metal braces are the most common of the different types of braces. Metal braces are made of high-grade stainless steel and straighten your teeth using metal brackets and wires which slowly move your teeth into place. Metal braces provide you with the option for adding colored elastics for a unique, colorful smile.

Fast Braces

Fastbraces® Technology allows for movement of the roots of the teeth towards their final positions from the beginning of treatment by torquing them from the very first appointment. Patients can now get results often with less sensitivity, in about a year, and in some cases, just a few months. It has been developed and tested over the past 20 years and is now becoming available in countries around the world .  Dr. Eric Lawton is a proud Fastbraces® provider.

Ceramic Braces

Made of clear materials, ceramic braces are less visible than traditional braces. Older teenagers and adult patients with cosmetic concerns are the most frequent users of ceramic braces. Though ceramic braces are visually less prominent, the are also larger and more brittle than traditional braces. Therefore, they require more oral attention than other types of braces. Also, ceramic braces tend to be used on upper front teeth rather than on lower teeth.
