Our Orthodontic Services
We offer traditional braces that are made of extremely strong metal alloys that are highly durable and able to move teeth faster. Because of the strength of these contemporary braces, they are available in a smaller size, which makes them more comfortable. For those who prefer brackets that are less noticeable, we also offer clear braces that are made of ceramic.
Invisalign is a modern way to straighten teeth without the use of traditional braces. With Invisalign, the teeth are gradually shifted using multiple sets of removable, plastic aligners. Because the aligners are clear, this option allows you to preserve your smile without any major changes to your appearance.
Benefits of Straightening Your Teeth at Any Age
Whether you are 10, 20 or 50 years old, there are some great advantages to straightening your teeth. Of course, there is the obvious – a beautiful, radiant new smile. And research has found that a beautiful smile improves confidence, enhances the quality of relationships and magnifies success at school and work.
Additionally, there are links between straight teeth and whole body health most often seen through the prevention of periodontal disease. People with crooked or crowded teeth are more susceptible to periodontal disease as crooked, crowded teeth are harder to clean and result in bad breath, bleeding gums, loose teeth, and even teeth loss.
When most people think of braces, they still picture metal brackets and wires. But modern traditional braces are less noticeable than the notorious “metal-mouth” many adults remember. While traditional braces are the most noticeable type of braces, they are typically also the least expensive type of braces.
Advantages of Traditional Braces
- Usually the least expensive of all types of braces
- Treatment time is typically the shortest among all brace types
- You can choose a darker ligature to hide curry, smoking or black coffee stains on the teeth
- The braces are strong and rarely break
