Tooth Braces

Tooth braces are used to align teeth.There are different types of braces in Kenya. Traditionally braces were clearly visible and attracting a lot of attention but with changes in technology, we have a different variety to choose from. Clear braces use brackets made of ceramic or plastic which, except for the slim archwire, are hardly visible. Lingual braces are just like traditional metal braces except they are bonded to the back of your teeth (the tongue side) so that no one can see them.

Removable clear aligners are an alternative to fixed orthodontic appliances.


They consist of a series of clear plastic “trays” that fit over your teeth exactly; each one moves your teeth a little bit until they are in the proper position. Whether fixed or removable, each type of appliance may have advantages or disadvantages in particular situations. After a complete examination and investigations at Smartsmile dentalcare clinics, the best treatment options for you will be discussed.
