These are also known as “train-tracks” and allow the wire to be secured to the teeth so they can be straightened. The bracket on the tooth can be either metal or ceramic (tooth-coloured). The ceramic brackets that we use are very aesthetic and favoured mostly by our adult patients while our younger patients enjoy the variety of colours offered by the standard metal bracket. We also have another metal bracket for patients who prefer not to have colours, which is ideally suited to certain clinical situations. Your orthodontist will advise you which bracket will suit your treatment best.
