The Right Treatment at the Right Time

Dental technology is always getting better. New orthodontic treatments and options are becoming more widely available.


Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the most widely used type of fixed orthodontic appliance. They are typically made of a mix of high-grade stainless steel, nickel, and other metals.

Traditional metal braces are a reliable, effective, and economical option that have stood the test of time for over a century.

Though past incarnations have been bulky, awkward, or even painful, today's metal braces are smaller, lighter, and more comfortable to wear than ever before.

Clear Braces

While traditional metal braces remain the most popular option for orthodontic treatment, ceramic braces can be a great choice for some patients. Sometimes known as clear braces, these provide a much less noticeable method of treatment.

Ceramic braces use the same components as traditional braces, but instead of metal, the brackets on the front side of the teeth are made of see-through ceramic material.

The Clear Option

Invisalign & Invisalign Teen

Unlike traditional braces, this kind of orthodontic treatment doesn’t rely on a system of metal or ceramic brackets and wires. The Invisalign system is made up of a series of fully customized, clear trays called aligners that are nearly invisible and completely removable.

Their soft plastic also means no friction or abrasions inside the mouth, so they are more comfortable to wear. The aligners are changed out weekly, and when worn the recommended 20-22 hours per day, will gradually move your teeth into the best position for your smile.
