types of braces

In Southern Delaware Dental Specialists we offer several Orthodontic treatments:

  • Visible
    • Metal orthodontics is the best known of all types of orthodontics and, although more and more people are opting for others, it is also the most common. In metal orthodontics we use stainless steel brackets of the highest quality.


  •  Invisalign
    • Invisible orthodontics or Invisalign differs from other types of metal and cosmetic orthodontics in that it is removable. In other words, we don’t wear it all the time. It consists of two transparent splints that are placed on the teeth as if they were a cover, and are imperceptible at first sight.


  • Lingual orthodontics:
    • The method is the same as that of conventional metal orthodontics, i.e. stainless steel brackets. The big difference with the other types of orthodontics is mainly aesthetic. These brackets are placed on the inside of the teeth. Therefore, to all intents and purposes, it is practically invisible orthodontics.
