Metal braces are made of high-quality, durable stainless steel. They are the most common type of braces. The brackets, which are bonded to the front of each tooth, are connected by the archwire, which helps guide the teeth into the correct positions. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive. We are proud to say that all of our braces are American made.
Ceramic braces move teeth just as efficiently as metal braces and the brackets are clear, so they are less noticeable. One thing to consider before choosing them is that they can be more fragile, and clear elastic ties may discolor between orthodontic visits.
The Invisalign System is a series of clear overlay trays, called aligners. They have been generated by 3-D computer simulation and each tray gradually moves the teeth. This system is available to patients with certain orthodontic problems. Make sure to ask us if you are a candidate.
