Types of Braces:
Traditional Metal Braces: Metal braces are the most common type of braces and can be customized with a variety of colorful elastic bands.
Ceramic Braces: These are less visible compared to traditional braces. They are generally preferred by adults but can be given to any patient. Our providers will be happy to discuss this option with you.
Lingual Braces: We also provide braces that are placed on the inner surface of the teeth and aren’t visible when patients smile and talk. Adult patients prefer these to traditional metal/ceramic braces on the front of the teeth. Talk to our providers if you think this is a good choice for you.
Invisalign: We also offer the Invisalign system. These are clear aligners created using leading 3-D computer technology If you’re considering Invisalign, check with our providers. We have an invisalign teen program, too.
