We are pleased to offer a variety of orthodontic treatment options to kids, teens and adults.
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of dental braces that are used in orthodontic treatment. When it comes to treatment options, these orthodontic workhorses have a well-established history of successful results and are incredibly efficient at correcting oral issues, whether mild or complex. The brackets in metal braces are very durable and long-lasting thanks to the materials they’re created with. A mix of stainless steel, nickel, and other metals creates strong, yet flexible, support for teeth.
Advances in technology have made today’s braces easier to maintain and much more comfortable than before. These new metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and much more efficient. The latest self-ligating braces allow for fewer appointments, less friction and less discomfort, meaning less time at the orthodontist! The benefits of modern metal braces outweigh the drawbacks as a treatment option.
Show Off Your Smile
Traditional braces also let you use colorful elastics to showcase your unique personality. The elastics that fit around your brackets come in many different colors.
Ceramic (Clear) Braces
Made from more discreet materials, ceramic braces are less noticeable than traditional braces, as they blend with your teeth. Ceramic braces offer the same advantages of metal braces and are a good option for patients desiring a less visible appliance. They function the same way as traditional metal braces and can still provide the accurate and efficient treatment of conventional braces but without the metal brackets.
As you might expect, ceramic braces are especially popular with adults and older teens. These are perfect for someone who does not want their braces to stand out but also does not want the added responsibility that comes with clear aligners. Like metal braces, advances in technology have made ceramic brackets smaller, more comfortable, more efficient and stain resistant.
