Metal Braces

  • Metal 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.

Ceramic Braces

  • Ceramic 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®

  • 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 the clear way for teens to straighten teeth without metal braces, using aligners.
  • You can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth; and there are no wires, metal or brackets to cause mouth abrasions.
  • They come with a Blue Dot Wear Indicator to show how long each aligner has been worn and six free replacement aligners.

In-Ovation Braces

  • In-Ovation is a self-ligating bracket, which allows more control during treatment than more traditional brackets.
  • They are smaller in size but also stronger and more efficient because they have a built-in clip that holds the archwires in place without the need for wire or elastic ties.
