Types of braces offered at our practice include:
Each type of braces has its own benefits:
- Metal Braces — Traditional metal braces are the most common orthodontic treatment available and are an excellent option for nearly everyone who receives orthodontic care. Thanks to advances in technology and materials, this type of braces is smaller and more comfortable than ever before.
- Clear Braces — Also known as ceramic braces, this type of braces works the same way that metal braces do. Unlike metal braces, however, they are made using a translucent material that blends in with your teeth for a more discreet treatment. They are popular among those looking for a more natural appearance during their treatment.
- Clear Aligners — Clear aligner therapy relies on custom-made oral aligners rather than a system of wires, brackets and bands. Your aligners are made from clear plastic, making them nearly invisible, and are created using computer simulation to ensure precise, optimal results. This treatment is highly popular among teenagers and adults.
- Self-Ligating Braces — This type of braces is designed to be fast and more comfortable than traditional braces are, using a slide mechanism that eliminates the need for ties and special shape-memory wires to move your teeth with fewer adjustments. Self-ligating braces are available in traditional metal or ceramic braces.
