Fixed appliances
-Traditional braces: This appliance is made of metal brackets and metal wires. The brackets are cemented to the front surfaces of the teeth and they are connected by a wire. If you would like, you can customize the braces by choosing different-colored bands to wrap around the brackets.

-Ceramic braces: This appliance is like traditional braces but it is matched to the color of your teeth. This makes it tough to see. However, it is still cemented to the front surfaces of the teeth and it contains brackets and wires.

-Lingual braces: This appliance is just like traditional braces. However, instead of being glued to the front surfaces of the teeth, it is glued to the back surfaces of the teeth. This makes them completely unnoticeable.

These appliances shift the teeth by adding pressure regularly.

Removable appliances
-Aligner: This appliance is typically made of a plastic material, which makes it almost invisible when you are wearing it. When moving the teeth, it pushes them into the proper positions by being pre-molded.
