Types of Braces

Metal Braces

Master teeth

Metal braces are made of high-quality, durable stainless steel. They are the most common type of braces. The brackets, which are bonded to the front of each tooth, are connected by the archwire, which helps guide the teeth into the correct positions. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.

Dr. Havens uses Master Series by American Orthodontics for the metal braces. Master Series is the versatile, metal twin bracket system that orthodontists have trusted for more than 25 years. All Master Series brackets feature a technologically advanced, visually intuitive design that seamlessly adapts with your clinical expertise. Master Series patented Diagonal Torque and Diagonal Angulation makes bonding precision simple, delivering exceptional results with fewer wire bends.

Ceramic Braces

Ormco ICE

Ceramic braces move teeth just as efficiently as metal braces, except the brackets are clear, so they are less noticeable. They are most popular with adult patients due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawbacks to ceramic brackets are that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor and become more visible between orthodontic visits.
