At 860 Dental in Hamilton, we understand the importance of a confident smile. That's why we offer comprehensive orthodontic services, including traditional braces. If you're considering braces for yourself or your child, here's what you must know.

Types of Braces

There are many braces available, each with its features and benefits:

  • Traditional metal braces: These are the most common braces made of high-grade stainless steel. They are highly effective in correcting dental issues and are more affordable than other options.

  • Ceramic braces: These braces are less visible and noticeable than metal braces and blend in with your teeth's natural colour. They are famous for those who want a more discreet orthodontic treatment.

  • Lingual braces: These are connected to the back of the teeth, making them invisible from the front. They are an excellent option for those concerned about the appearance of traditional braces.

  • Invisalign: Although not technically braces, Invisalign aligners are a popular alternative to traditional braces. They are straightforward, removable, and custom-made for each patient, offering a more comfortable and discreet orthodontic treatment.

Benefits of Braces

Here are the benefits of braces:

  • Corrects crooked teeth and aligns the bite, improving overall dental health.

  • Boosts self-confidence by giving you a straighter, more attractive smile.

  • It can help alleviate issues like jaw pain and difficulty chewing.
