Traditional metal braces have come a long way, and they remain an efficient and effective way to straighten teeth in as little as six months. Using the InOvation system, free-sliding technology uses limited pressure to gently guide your teeth into alignment. As a result, you get a more comfortable and affordable orthodontic experience, and you can even choose colorful brackets to show your unique style!
Types of Dental Braces: How to Choose the Right Braces for You
We offer several ways to achieve a healthier smile including traditional braces (metal, ceramic and clear brackets), Invisalign Clear Aligners, and orthodontic appliances.
Traditional Metal Braces
Invisalign Clear Aligners
After more than 20 years in research, Invisalign developed the most advanced clear aligner as a discreet alternative to traditional braces. Instead of wires and brackets, Invisalign clear aligners relay on innovative technology and materials to gently align your teeth.
and Clear Braces
Ceramic and clear braces function like traditional metal braces but are less noticeable. Though both orthodontic options use wires, the brackets blend more with your teeth. Ceramic brackets closely match the color of tooth enamel and clear brackets use plastic. If you seek a more discreet orthodontic experience, ceramic or clear braces may be an option.
Some orthodontic options protect your teeth from damage or prepare your mouth for the next step in treatment. Orthodontic appliances can correct alignment issues and protect against damage, like guards to prevent thumb sucking, athletic mouth guards, and palate expanders.
