Orthodontics

What are my options?
At our office we offer several different treatment options for your braces. Metal (traditional) braces are your traditional braces that you picture first when you hear "braces." Ceramice (clear) braces are the same size and shape as traditional braces, but the brackets are tooth-colored, and therefore, blend in with your teeth. We also offer Invisalign

Metal braces/Traditional braces
These are the metal brackets and wires that most people picture when they hear the word "braces." However, modern brackets are smaller and less noticeable than the notorious "metal-mouth" braces than many adults remember. Plus, new heat-activated archwires use your body heat to help teeth move more quickly and less painfully than in the past. These are the regular braces that come in different shapes, sizes and different philosophies (active and passive).The decision of the choice of brackets is made by the Orthodontist and the patient together.

Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces are the same size and shape as metal braces, except that they have tooth-colored or clear brackets that blend in to teeth. Some even use tooth-colored wires to be even less noticeable.

Retainers
These are the mandatory removable/fixed appliances delivered by the orthodontist after the treatment is over to avoid shifting of teeth. Read more at: http://www.oralb.com/embraceit/types-of-braces
