Types of Braces in Rockford, IL

A lot of us can remember a time when braces meant one thing, a full mouth full of metal and hardware. Today, we’ve come a long way from that and we’re able to offer you more options than ever before. Listed below are different types of braces Winnebago Braces is able to offer you.

  • Traditional Braces: Unlike before, traditional braces today are much lighter in weight and in structure. Traditional braces are bonded to your teeth with a special type of cement. The wires aren’t as thick and the brackets aren’t as large. While you’ll still find that the metal is possibly more noticeable than other styles, it is still one of the most preferred types of braces on the market.
  • Ceramic Braces: Similar to traditional braces, ceramic braces are bonded to your teeth in the same way. The difference between traditional braces and ceramic braces is the material ceramic braces are made with. As the name suggests, the braces are made with a clear and ceramic material which make the braces more discreet.
  • Invisalign: Unlike traditional and ceramic braces, Invisalign offers a different approach to orthodontic issues. Invisalign is a clear aligner that is custom-made for your teeth, both upper and lower. One major difference between this style and others is that the clear aligner is removable and so there is no cement needed to hold the aligner in place. This makes for a very discreet treatment of your orthodontic problem.

These are just a few of the options at your disposal today. As always, at Winnebago Braces we’re here to help. If you have any questions regarding types of braces in Rockford, don’t hesitate to stop in.
