Types of Braces
Metal Braces: These consist of two basic components—metal brackets and a bendable wire. Metal braces in Saskatoon are the least expensive type of braces and provide the fastest results.
Ceramic Braces: These are a popular and discreet alternative to metal braces, as they consist of ceramic material that is tooth-coloured.
Lingual Braces: These are the same as metal braces, however, the brackets are placed on the inside of the teeth instead, so they are less intrusive and noticeable.
Self-Ligating Braces: These braces use less friction to move your teeth, for more comfortable repositioning. Generally, braces are worn for one year, depending on the patient’s specific case.
