Treatment Options We Offer
We offer many options to help you pursue orthodontic treatment that fits into your lifestyle and budget.
Traditional (Metal) Braces
Silver-colored metal braces are the most common type of dental braces used in orthodontic therapy. These brackets are made up of a mix of stainless steel, nickel, and other metals. This makes the brackets very durable to help prevent breakage.
Ceramic braces are what most people think of as “clear braces.” They function the same way as traditional metal braces, but offer a cosmetic alternative to the metal.
Incognito braces, also known as lingual braces, are another way to straighten teeth without visible brackets and wires. These braces go on the back side of your teeth.
Self-ligating braces use a metal “door” to hold the wire in place. A sliding and clipping system in these doors holds the wire in place. This system reduces the pressure on your teeth and can make treatment more efficient.
Invisalign technology consists of customized aligner trays made of smooth, comfortable, clear plastic that you wear over your teeth.
