Types of Braces in the Hudson Valley NY
- Invisalign – Invisalign is an alternative to traditional braces. Plastic aligners are made from 3D molds to gently shift your teeth to their prescribed position.
- Ceramic/Clear Braces – Ceramic braces are similar to traditional metal braces, but can be clear or the same color of your teeth, making them less noticeable.
- Traditional Metal Braces – Traditional metal braces may be what you envision when you think of braces. Made from metal alloy, these braces are glued directly to your teeth and maneuvered with a wire that is tightened weekly.

What Are Traditional, Metal Braces?
Traditional, stainless steel, braces are made of brackets that are bonded to the front of your teeth. Each bracket has edges known as wings that metal or elastic bands can be tied. They hold the orthodontic wire in place. The brackets are available in different shapes and sizes (depending on the manufacturer).
