Snö Dental offers the most comprehensive types of ﬁxed orthodontic braces on the market for children, teens, and adults to ﬁt any type of lifestyle and budget.
Fixed dental braces can be placed either on the buccal (outside) or lingual (inside) side of your teeth. Your Snö Specialist Orthodontist, Dr Roelien Stapelberg, will make sure that whatever fixed brace treatment you select will ﬁt precisely, according to your needs, and be as discreet as possible in appearance. Although ﬁxed dental braces require more work than the popular invisible aligners, fixed aligners offer a higher level of control, leading to higher precision than a treatment with removable dental braces.
Types of orthodontic dental braces available at Snö.
Often referred to as Ceramic Braces these tooth-coloured braces are made of semi-translucent material and are vaguely noticeable, providing a less obvious alternative to ﬁxed metal braces. These braces are a very popular orthodontic treatment choice with both our teen and adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. They work in a similar way as traditional ﬁxed braces, using a thin wire to gently move your brackets and teeth. While ceramic braces aren’t as discreet as removable clear aligners (such as Invisalign®), they are excellent at straightening teeth.
Metal Braces (Traditional Braces)
Straight Wire braces are the most common type of braces used by orthodontists. With these braces you can create your own colorful combination of elastics for your braces.
Invisalign is the most contemporary orthodontic braces technology to straighten misaligned teeth in an almost invisible way, without wires or metal braces. Invisalign is an extremely popular type of braces.
Removable braces click onto your teeth and can be removed when necessary. This type of orthodontic brace is usually only used for the upper teeth and is limited in its capabilities and are customized to your unique anatomy.
