Types of Braces
Metal braces (medical grade stainless steel) are the most common and popular type of braces used. If you choose metal braces for your treatment, we will utilize the most comfortable, efficient, and technologically advanced metal braces available. Many patients choose to have different colors placed on their braces as a means of personal expression and fun. Because it's so simple to change the colors, feel free to swap them at every visit.
Clear Ceramic Braces
Clear ceramic braces are an aesthetic alternative for those who don't want their braces to show as much. Clear braces move your teeth in exactly the same way as metal braces do. Like metal braces, they are extremely comfortable to wear and very efficient at moving teeth.
How Does Invisalign Work?
You wear each set of aligners for 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move slowly in a pre-programmed manner until they have straightened to the final position your orthodontist has prescribed. You'll visit our office about once every 4-6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. The time and total number of aligners needed will vary from case by case. Your doctor will be able to determine the time needed after the computer scanning and virtual treatment plan.

What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces.
Invisalign uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets.
Invisalign has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide.
Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
