The high-point of being under orthodontic treatment is having to wear braces. Also, for most of those who have undergone dental treatment, the most common being metal braces.
Of course, they are still prevalent, and some people would always prefer to use them. However, for those who love varieties, there are some other options available for you.

Fixed braces can’t be taken off until the result is achieved. They are attached to a patient’s teeth using metal fixers or removable cement. They are advisable for whole dental treatment.

Metal braces are tiny and spring-like and held together by an archwire. They remain popular because they are on budget and reliable. Talk about rigidity; they are made of high-quality stainless steel. Meanwhile, you can have metal braces in various colors or custom modifications.
Ceramic braces are a brief departure from the traditional braces. It is because the only thing that sets them apart from traditional braces is the ceramic front-view of a typical transparent ceramic that matches the color of the front part of the teeth. Apart from that, it’s becoming popular with those who can afford it because it’s not noticeable. Well, unless anyone looks at your dental closely. They are befitting to the eyes that behold them closely except that they are not so durable.
