New technologies allow producing bracets from different materials: stainless steel, plastic, sapphire, gold, and ceramics. In the United States more than 50% of pupils and students wear bracets. Patients can select the material for their choice, they can order any color of wires. If a patient needs the bracets usage, his age is not important.
