We proudly use locally manufactured American Orthodontics self-ligating brackets. Pictured below are the actual brackets we use daily in our office.
Traditional Metal Self-Ligating Braces
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using small metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding fun, colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.
Clear (Ceramic) Self-Ligating Braces
Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used primarily on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns.
Clear aligners are a series of nearly invisible, removable, and comfortable plastic trays that straighten your teeth like braces. Not only are the aligners less noticeable, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are less of a hassle. Schedule a free exam today to find out if you are a candidate for clear aligner treatment.
