Types of Orthodontic Treatment

We are an impression-free office, utilizing the latest in technology to treat our patients. We offer a plethora of orthodontic treatment solutions detailed below. 

Clear (Ceramic) Braces

Ceramic braces are made of clear porcelain materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on patients who have cosmetic concerns. Because the brackets are made of porcelain, they do not stain. We use the highest quality brackets on the market, the 3M Clarity Bracket, to ensure brackets don't fracture and also to prevent discomfort when removing the clear braces. Unlike most clearn brackets, the 3M Clarity bracket has a custom fracture line that when activate, safely and comfortably comes off the tooth. 

Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile. For both clear and metal braces, we use brackets on all the teeth versus bands. Brackets are more hygenic, comfortable, and provide a more accurate and detailed orthodontic final result. 

Clear Aligners

invisalign

Clear aligners are a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable acrylic trays that straighten your teeth like braces. Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are less of a hassle. The aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. Our office is unique in that we offer in office clear aligners at an affordable price compared to other clear aligner systems.
