Traditional braces use stainless steel brackets and archwires to move your teeth into their proper position. Many teenagers like to decorate their braces with different colored rubber bands to give them a colorful and unique smile. You can choose a new color (or colors) during every adjustment!
Most teens and adults are reluctant to get the orthodontic care they need due to the appearance of orthodontic appliances. That’s why we offer clear braces, which are much less noticeable than metal braces, but still give patients a smile they deserve. Clear braces are just like metal braces, but they are almost invisible.
Self-ligating braces are similar to traditional braces, however, they do not require elastics like traditional braces. Rather than using elastics, they use specialized clips to help form the perfect smile. Unlike elastics, these specialized clips reduce the amount of force and pressure on your teeth.
Invisalign® is a wonderful, modern, alternative treatment to braces. You can straighten your teeth without installing metal in your mouth. Instead, we use plastic trays (also known as aligners) to move your teeth back into place. Each aligner is custom made to fit your mouth so you don’t have to worry about mouth irritation or anything else that traditional braces can cause.
