Types of Braces
Both of Dr. Cloth’s offices in Charlottesville and Staunton, VA utilize the most comfortable, efficient and technologically advanced braces available. Because we offer the latest technology in braces, more choices are available to our patients.
Regular metal braces are still the most widely used, and are the most popular with kids and teenagers. They love using different colors of ligature ties. These braces are much smaller than ever before.
Translucent, clear, ceramic or plastic braces are the most popular with adults. You have to be very close to someone to be able to see them. Yet, because they are a non-metallic material, they are more fragile and have some limitations. We will discuss these choices of braces and any other braces questions at the consultation appointment.
