Types of braces
We will be able to create beautiful, straight smiles that you can feel confident in no matter which treatment option you chose. Traditional metal braces can sometimes work faster when it comes to closing gaps in your teeth and aligning them than other treatments might. That can make for shorter overall treatment times. They can also be cost-effective when compared to other options. Today's braces are also more advanced than ever before, with their superior strength, durability and affordability enabling them to withstand the test of time. That's why they remain the top orthodontic treatment method in use after all of the years.
Traditional metal braces have stood the test of time and remain a popular choice for orthodontic treatment. Composed of high-grade stainless steel, these braces utilize metal brackets and archwires to straighten your teeth effectively. Modern metal braces are not only more comfortable but also offer a fun element—you can choose colored elastics to add a personal touch to your treatment.
Our ceramic braces offer the same effective treatment as metal braces but with a discreet twist. The brackets are made from a clear ceramic material, making them less visible and a popular choice among our older teen and adult patients. While they offer discretion, they do require a bit more care to prevent breakage.
Although they aren't technically braces, we also offer clear aligners such as Invisalign, that offer a virtually invisible method to straighten your teeth. Ideal for adults and teens who prefer a more discreet option, these aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth and are easily removable for eating and cleaning.
The Treatment Process
Before initiating any treatment, our dedicated team will gather digital x-rays, photos, and a model of your mouth. This data helps us create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific orthodontic needs. The plan outlines the precise movements each tooth must make for optimal alignment.
Once your braces are on, the wire inserted into the brackets applies pressure to the teeth, initiating a process called remodeling. This process involves minor changes in the bone surrounding the roots of your teeth, effectively moving them into their desired positions.
Aftercare and Retainers
It's crucial to note that teeth tend to drift back to their original positions after treatment. Therefore, the regular use of a retainer is essential to maintain your new, beautiful smile.
