Braces and Aligners
Types of Braces
Traditional Metal Braces
These braces are the most common type used, and they have greatly improved over the years. With these braces, you get effective and affordable treatment that can even be customized with fun colored ties and unique brackets.
Ceramic braces are used on the front upper teeth in older, responsible patients. They are very delicate but have the advantage of being nearly invisible. Their color blends in with the teeth and the material is designed to minimize irritation.
Clear aligners, such as Invisalign, fit over the teeth snuggly, placing pressure in strategic ways. They are invisible when worn and can be removed for eating and drinking. They require fewer office visits as well, making them a very convenient form of treatment.
