Metal Braces

colorMetal braces are still the most popular orthodontic treatment we offer, as they're a reliable, cost-effective option for straightening teeth. Metal braces are made of high-grade stainless steel, and modern braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive than ever.

Clear Braces

clearClear braces, or ceramic braces, are similar to metal braces except that brackets are made from a translucent (clear) material that blends in with teeth. This makes metal braces popular with adult patients due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawbacks to ceramic brackets are that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.

Invisalign Clear Aligners

invisalignFor a truly discreet and convenient option, Invisalign is hard to beat. Invisalign does away with brackets and wires entirely, instead of using a series of clear overlay templates – called aligners – that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. The aligners are almost invisible when worn and easy to take out for eating, drinking, and oral hygiene. Invisalign is available to adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems, so ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign system today!

InBrace Brackets

Typodont-bottomInBrace Brackets work just like regular braces, except for one small difference: the brackets are placed on the inside of the teeth, making them impossible to see when the mouth is closed! This makes InBrace the only truly invisible form of orthodontic treatment. InBrace brackets are small, smooth, and will seamlessly fit onto the back of your teeth.
