Dental braces also known as orthodontic braces or braces are devices used in orthodontics that align and straighten teeth and help to position them with regard to a person’s bite, while also working to improve dental health. They are often used to correct under bites, as well as malocclusions, overbites, cross bites, open bites, deep bites, crooked teeth, and various other flaws of the teeth and jaw. Braces can be either cosmetic or structural. Dental braces are often used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to help widen the palate or jaws and to otherwise assist in shaping the teeth and jaws.
We, at LE Dental Clinic Imus Cavite, give instructions on how to minimize the pain associated after orthodontic treatment. LE Dental Clinic Imus also monitors their orthodontic patient a day after the bracket placement. You can text or call LE Dental Clinic Imus Cavite for your dental concern.

Types of Braces
1. Metal braces or Traditional braces
These are the metal brackets and wires that most people picture when they hear the word “braces.” However, modern brackets are smaller and less noticeable than the notorious “metal-mouth” braces than many adults remember. Plus, new heat-activated arch wires use your body heat to help teeth move more quickly and less painfully than in the past.
Advantage of Metal braces:
- Least expensive
- Uses colored band
- Used in mild to moderate cases of malocclusions
2. Ceramic braces
Ceramic braces are made of composite materials. They come in varying levels of transparency so you have ceramic brace that can take on the natural color of the teeth or are thoroughly translucent to be called clear ceramic braces and they do not stain. Some patient prefer ceramic braces because they blend in with the color of the teeth and are cosmetically less noticeable than metal.
Ceramic braces are for patient who doesn’t want to have noticeable braces.
Advantage of Ceramic braces:
- Has aesthetic and cosmetic appeal
- Do not stain
But the clear elastic wires or ties holding the brackets to your teeth stain, especially if you smoke, eat a lot of curry or drink loads of coffee. But these ties are changed every time an adjustment is made, usually, monthly.
3. Self-ligating braces
The “ties” used with traditional braces do an effective job of holding the wire in place, but impart significant disadvantages including frictional binding and food trapping. Through elimination of these “ties” Self-Ligating braces reduce frictional resistance. This may permit the teeth to move more freely, and with less applied force. As a result, treatment may be more comfortable, and tooth movement more efficient. Additionally, food trapping is also reduced due to the elimination of “ties.”
Advantage of Self ligating braces:
- Fewer appointment
- Faster treatment
- Greater comfort
- Less likely to have extraction/surgery
- Ideal for mild, moderate and severe types of orthodontic cases
