Traditional Braces

Consisting of metal brackets and wires, traditional braces continue to be one of the most popular options for orthodontic treatment. Bonded to teeth for permanent placement, the wire is tightened at each dental visit to encourage teeth to move into the appropriate position. The average timeframe for treatment is 2-3 years depending on the severity of the initial problem, and traditional braces are deemed a suitable choice for children, teens, and adults.

Clear/Ceramic Braces

It’s no secret that traditional braces can result in a lot of unwanted attention, so if you’re looking to avoid the spotlight, you can opt for clear/ceramic braces. Made with tooth-colored or transparent brackets and wires, they appear more subtle and tend to lay flatter against teeth. This minimizes their bulkiness and visibility so that you can undergo the same orthodontic timeline without the noticeable metal.

Invisalign® Clear Aligners

In just 12-18 months, you can achieve a straighter smile with Invisalign Clear Aligners. Made from SmartTrack technology that promotes a more comfortable fit and predictable results, these clear plastic trays are to be worn 20-22 hours each day to keep teeth moving in the right direction. Your commitment to the process requires swapping out current sets for the next ones in the series every two weeks until you are finished with treatment.

Retainers & Oral Appliances

The final phase of any orthodontic treatment is to receive a custom-made retainer. This device ensures that your teeth will remain in their new location permanently. Otherwise, they will attempt to shift to their original placement, effectively undoing all your hard work. Most retainers are worn around the clock initially; however, as time passes, our team might recommend that you only wear it at night.
