We offer a variety of types of braces to our patients to suit a variety of orthodontic needs and lifestyles.
Traditional Metal Braces
Metal braces are what most people think of when they hear the word "braces," and while they're the oldest treatment around, they're still the most popular. Made from high-grade stainless steel, metal braces use a combination of brackets, wires, and bands to move the teeth to new locations. Metal braces offer a reliable, durable, and cost-effective form of treatment for a wide variety of orthodontic conditions.
Clear braces use the same basic mechanics as traditional braces, but with one key difference: the brackets are made from a clear ceramic composite material that blends in with teeth. This makes them far less noticeable than traditional braces, reducing the impact treatment has on your daily life. While they have an undeniable cosmetic appeal, they're slightly more fragile than metal braces, and while the brackets themselves won't discolor, the elastic rings that hold the archwire in place can stain between visits.
Invisalign uses a fundamentally different method to move the teeth. Instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable trays – called aligners – to straighten the teeth. The aligners fit directly onto the dental arch and lay flat against the teeth, and they're made from a special plastic material that's transparent and blends in with teeth. This means that the aligners are virtually invisible when worn, and because they're removable, they can be taken out to eat, drink, brush, or floss. With Invisalign, almost no one will know you're straightening your teeth, you can still enjoy all your favorite foods, and maintaining oral hygiene is as easy as ever! All of these advantages make it hugely popular with socially-minded teenagers and busy adult professionals alike.
