The dental brackets are held together with the teeth, and the arch wires are placed in the brackets to control the height and direction of the teeth.
Features: cheap price, lack of aesthetic, and oral health care during orthodontic more difficult.
2. Transparent ceramic brackets
Ceramic bracket is also called invisible bracket because its color is close to the natural color of teeth. The materials are mainly polycrystalline and single crystal alumina, and the main difference between them is their different light transmittance. The transparency of single crystal alumina is high, while the color of polycrystalline alumina is usually white.

3. Dental lingual brackets
Lingual stealth correction technique is an emerging orthodontic technique in recent years. Install the orthodontic brackets on the tongue side of the tooth for orthodontic treatment and no orthodontic treatment device can be seen on the appearance. After years of theoretical research and technical improvement, lingual correction technology has become its own system, and is widely used in Japan and the United States. Domestic lingual stealth correction technology is also gradually mature.
Features: high aesthetics, difficult technical operation, difficult oral hygiene cleaning, and high price.
4. Invisible correction without brackets

It is a series of continuous orthodontic devices, through the continuous small range of tooth movement to achieve the purpose of orthodontic teeth. The appliance can not only control the magnitude of the orthodontic force, but also control the time of the effect of the orthodontic force. At different stages only some teeth can be moved, while the other teeth act as an anchorage and complete the orthodontic treatment.
