Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces are the oldest treatment in orthodontics, but despite having been around the longest, they’re still the most popular treatment we offer. Composed of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces use a network of brackets and wires to straighten the teeth.
Modern braces use smaller brackets for a more comfortable, aesthetically appealing option than braces in the past. Metal braces are durable, reliable, and cost-effective, and we can use them to treat virtually any orthodontic condition. They make an excellent option for virtually any patient.
Clear (Ceramic) Braces
Ceramic braces work the same way as metal braces, with one key difference: the brackets are made from a clear ceramic composite material, which enables them to blend in with teeth. This produces a discreet, less noticeable treatment option that carries many of the same benefits as traditional metal braces. Clear braces can treat almost any orthodontic condition, but they offer distinct cosmetic benefits.
Invisalign is a radically different treatment that does away with brackets and wires entirely. Invisalign relies on a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten the teeth. They fit directly onto the dental arch and are completely transparent, which makes them almost impossible to see when worn.
Furthermore, Invisalign aligners are 100% removable; so patients are free to pop them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Invisalign is one of the most convenient and discreet treatments on the market, making it a popular option for adult orthodontic treatment. For adolescent patients, we even offer a specialized form of Invisalign called Invisalign Teen.
