Modern Metal Braces

Modern metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable than ever! Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and arch wires. It is important to come in for adjustments every 4-8 weeks so that we can change arch wires and keep teeth moving in the proper direction! With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored, elastic o-ties for a more unique and colorful smile.


Clear (Ceramic) Braces

Clear Aligners (Invisalign®)

Clear aligners are a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable acrylic trays that straighten your teeth like braces. We will place some small tooth-colored attachments on your teeth that the trays will fit over. 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.
