Before we tackle the cost of braces, it’s best to know what braces are. So braces or orthodontic brackets as they are sometimes called, have small appliances used by dental professionals or Parramatta orthodontist to guide your teeth and bite into the correct position.
In the past, braces are often associated with metal braces or brackets because that is the only thing that they were made up back then, entirely metal. But times change, things evolve and technologies advance, making metal braces a thing of the past.
Thus now, these appliances are being manufactured from all sorts of materials including ceramics and polycarbonate (strong plastic) providing you with a variety of options to choose from.
