Below are some of the treatments we offer
The most common orthodontic appliance that most people have seen in the past is often referred to as “train tracks”. They contain metal brackets, which are glued to your teeth’s front. A long wire is attached to these brackets, which are periodically tightened or replaced to move the teeth to the desired position gradually.
Invisible aligners are a popular choice for many people who require orthodontic treatment. They are made from transparent plastic and are virtually invisible when worn. They use a series of aligners that gently move teeth into desired positions, similar to retainers. These aligners are then changed periodically, often weekly. Invisible aligners are an excellent choice for people who are self-conscious about their appearance or don’t want to wear traditional metal braces. Invisible braces have many benefits, including being practically undetectable, more comfortable than metal braces, and easier to keep clean.
Clear or white braces are essentially the same as metal braces. They use brackets and a wire to move the teeth. However, instead of the brackets being made of metal, which can be very visible against the teeth, they are clear or white. Resulting in a much less visible appliance when talking or smiling, which is often more appealing to patients.
Treatments for Kids & Teens
Metal braces are the traditional ones most people have seen used commonly in the past. They have brackets, which are glued to the front of the teeth, and a long wire that is attached to these brackets. These metal wires are then tightened or replaced to move the teeth gradually.
