Metal

Metal braces are the most popular type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive. Many patients like to customize their braces with school or holiday colors, as well.

Clear

Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are frequently utilized by adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawbacks to ceramic brackets are that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.

Invisalign®

The Invisalign system is a series of clear overlay templates called aligners that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. This system is available to adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign system.

Invisalign® Teen

Invisalign Teen is perfect for the busy lifestyle of a teenager. These aligners are blue-to-clear color-changing aligners to show how long each aligner has been worn. They are removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing. You can still eat and drink what you want. Also, you can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth, and there are no wires, metal or brackets to cause mouth abrasions.
