Dental braces have been used traditionally due to their fixed and non removable nature which proves to be highly effective in treating critical orthodontic cases. Braces are often most sought option in severe misalignment, crooked, crowded, or bite issues as these braces are designed to exert strong forces required to correct the teeth alignments.

1. Metallic Braces
2. Ceramic Braces
3. Damon Braces


Metallic braces are still most popular and traditional orthodontic treatment which help align crooked, crowded teeth, under bite, and are available cost effectively. These braces are typically of metal brackets made of stainless steel which are attached to the front of the teeth using dental adhesive.

How these braces work?

The metal brackets, connected by a wire, work to apply pressure to teeth and guide them into the desired position over time. Rubber bands are used to secure the arch wire to the brackets, and apply extra pressure in certain areas to better align your teeth. Rubber bands can be customized according to the color of your choice.

These braces require regular monthly clinical visits to ensure that teeth are moving in right directions by readjusting the wire, in case needed, so that it applies

How long the alignment process takes with metallic braces?
Mild to moderate
6 months – 1 year
Moderate to severe
Approx. 2 years or more

Unique features of metallic braces



Ceramic braces are one of the most sought after orthodontic treatments aesthetically for alignment of teeth,. These braces are similar to metallic braces but offer a more discreet solution as these are made of tooth-coloured ceramic brackets which leave an aesthetical finishing compared to metallic ones. Ceramic braces are smooth & gentle on the gums, reducing the chances of irritation & discomfort.

Its working mechanism is the same as metallic braces, however, the main difference lies in the fact that it is comparatively invisible.

Unique features of ceramic braces



Damon braces are the latest orthodontic treatment available in the market with highly advanced technology. Damon braces are best known for their “self-ligating property” that differentiates them with traditional braces. These braces incorporate unique brackets to straighten the teeth with sliding mechanism.

Its working mechanism

A metal wire is attached to unique brackets, which securely hold the wire in place through its self ligating mechanism. The absence of ligature reduces friction and allows the wire to apply gentle forces to the teeth to gradually move them to their desired position . This unique self-ligating system of damon braces eliminates the need for elastic or metal ties used in traditional metal braces or ceramic braces thus facilitating an easy and comfortable tooth movement.

Advantages of Damon braces over traditional

Faster treatment
Easy-to-maintain oral hygiene
Comfortable/less friction
Enhanced aesthetics
Reduced regular clinical visits
