Types of Braces

Metal Braces

colorMetal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.

Clear

clearCeramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawback to ceramic brackets is that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.

Invisalign®

invisalignThe 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

invisalignWe also offer Invisalign® Teen for mature adolescent patients wanting a more discreet orthodontic treatment option. Invisalign Teen works essentially the same as Invisalign, and allows you to eat and drink what you want! Check out our Invisalign Teen page to learn more.
