So what is the cheapest type of braces?

If you want to straighten your teeth on a tight budget, go for regular metal braces. These are always the cheapest option in any clinic. Not only is it more affordable than other braces, it is the most effective. This is one of the rare situations where something is good AND cheap. So it is not surprising that it is the most popular type of braces in the world. The downside? Metal braces are the most visible. So if you want something discreet, consider other options. But the good thing is, most students don’t mind the metal appearance. In our experience treating thousands of students, many even prefer metal braces because they get to personalize their braces by choosing coloured rubber bands to tie over them.
