For years, traditional braces have been used by dental professionals to successfully straighten and align teeth.
The braces Dr. Ghai uses are much smaller than many designs, but there is quite a lot of technology built into the brackets. The final, proper alignment of each tooth is built into its bracket design.
This enables Dr. Ghai to use wires that are much more comfortable than previously used.
The wires and bracket design allow for faster treatment. The average treatment is 1-2 years as opposed to the 2-3 years that used to be recommended.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are the same size and shape as metal braces, except that they have tooth-colored or clear brackets that blend in to teeth. Some even use tooth-colored wires to be even less noticeable. They move teeth faster than clear plastic aligners (Invisalign) and are less noticeable than metal braces. However, they are more expensive than metal braces and they can stain easily if not taken care of properly.
