Traditional Braces & Clear Aligners
With all of the recent advancements in orthodontics, wearing braces has never been easier. State-of-the-art appliances and treatments are now available, from traditional metal braces, to clear and tooth colored brackets, to type of wires that are heat activated and require fewer adjustments! Some patients may even be candidates for treatment with clear aligners, a revolutionary way to straighten teeth using clear, retainer type aligners that require no braces or wires!
Traditional braces realign teeth by applying pressure. They usually consist of small brackets cemented to your teeth, connected by a wire, which is periodically tightened by your dentist or orthodontist to gradually shift your teeth and jaw. The brackets may be metal or tooth colored. Sometimes they are placed behind your teeth. Removable aligners are another option for treating orthodontic problems.
