Types of Braces in Atlanta and Marietta, GA


Wright Orthodontics dedicates its efforts to providing braces to local residents as a way to correct misaligned teeth so that everyone can have a beautiful and bright smile.

What Types of Braces Are Available?

There are several types of braces used to treat orthodontics patients in Atlanta and Marietta, GA. The best type for each patient varies depending on the need for braces. Dr. Wright will determine the best device for your teeth during your initial consultation. Here are the most preferred types of braces:

Metal Braces: Probably the most recognized are metal braces, which have been worn for years by patients requiring braces in general. Today’s metal braces are more advanced, making them comfortable and easy to wear as they are made of high-grade stainless steel and are much less burdensome than they used to be. Most importantly, they are much more affordable than other types of braces.

Ceramic Braces: Another type of braces that are similar in design are ceramic braces (or clear braces). With this type, the material used is translucent and much less noticeable, offering a cosmetic appeal especially for adults and teens. It is important to note that with ceramic braces, attention to oral hygiene and care is more important than ever since they are more fragile and can discolor between visits.

Clear Orthodontic Aligners: Also known as Invisalign®, this device involves using a set of invisible and removable aligners to straighten teeth. The aligners are very comfortable to wear. They are also barely noticeable and, since they are removable, eating and drinking, as well as maintaining good oral hygiene, are much easier. Dr. Wright is a certified Invisalign® provider.
