Today there are lots of distinct styles of braces that might assist you with your decision on how getting your teeth aligned. Being educated about your different options and which sort of braces will suit your aesthetic and operational needs.
The most common style of braces is the stainless steel (which is also known as “ข้องอสแตนเลส” in the Thai language ). The brackets that are attached to each of your teeth are made of the stainless steel material.
In addition, the archwire (the major wire attached to your mounts and used to model the arch your dentist needs) is made of stainless steel.
Newer metal braces today have smaller mounts that were available in years past. Many teens and adults use the colored rubber band choices to dress up the appearance and create the braces more of a personal fashion.
Gold plated braces are also usually made of stainless steel but have a gold overlay. This for many is a decorative option where they might be more prone to have the gold appearance over the silver. This is also used on patients that might have an allergic reaction to nickel that is found in stainless steel.
The braces are just gold plated for two reasons. The most obvious is cost, it could get quite costly if the brackets and wires were made of pure 24k gold. Another is that the strength of the gold.
