What Types of Braces Should I Get?
Your Santa Maria orthodontist might recommend two types of braces: Traditional metal braces or porcelain braces.
Both types of braces are made of the same components:
- An archwire
- Elastic bands
The brackets are bonded to the front of the teeth. The archwire fits into the brackets and helps guide the teeth into their ideal positions. The elastic bands hold the archwire in place.
