Types of Braces

Metal Braces


Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.


Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawback to ceramic brackets is that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.


Invisalign® Type Treatment

The Invisalign® System is a series of clear retainers used to move teeth.  Dr Cacchiotti has been using clear retainers to move teeth in specific cases for 20 years.
