These braces are an alternative to traditional metal braces. WildSmiles braces are similar to metal braces but with a slight difference. They are designed with brackets that come in a variety of shapes including hearts, stars, flowers, diamonds, baseballs and much else adding fun to the entire experience. These braces are recommended to those who don't like the appeal or thought of metal braces but are left with no choice. They are cool to look and come with the option of adding colored or clear rubber bands for a unique look.
Self-ligating braces are also similar to conventional metal braces. However, these braces do not use elastics to hold the teeth in place. As a result, they cause less friction on the tooth which means fewer visits to the dentist. The braces come in metal, ceramic or clear brackets. The use of specialized clip in place of rubber bands help the arch-wire align the teeth in place and helps reduce the pressure on the tooth. Self-ligating braces require fewer adjustments and less maintenance than other forms of braces.
