Different variants of braces are available and used by selecting the best possible option for the individual. One could select from either a removable brace or a fixed one. While the removable ones give the ease of removing it from time to time to relax the teeth, the fixed ones give a quicker result of perfectly aligned teeth.

These can be worn throughout the day and removed only when one wants to eat, drink or clean the teeth. Along with being comfortable to wear, they are not visible because of their clear appearance.
