Types Of Braces
We use self-ligating braces at Bathurst College Dentistry and you can choose between the ceramic or metal versions to suit your style.
With smaller, more streamlined brackets and high-tech wires, self-ligating metal braces, which are made from stainless steel, are a great choice for kids, teens, and adults.
Our clear self-ligating brackets are made from a translucent ceramic material that blends right into the teeth, so they are a lot less noticeable than their metal counterparts.

Since you will have some extra nooks and crannies with your brackets and wires, you will need to pay extra attention to your oral hygiene. It is important to note that a clean and healthy mouth can ward off tooth decay, stains, and gum disease.
