These days, it seems that just about every one you know has received braces at some point in their life. This is because braces function to correct crooked teeth and poor bites, helping smiles become healthier. If you are interested in receiving braces, our team can provide you with many options to customize your orthodontic treatment.

With modern orthodontic care has come many positive benefits of braces, as well as a wide variety of treatment options for all tooth alignment needs so that patients of all ages can achieve the smiles they want. Here are some common options for braces:

Traditional Metal Braces
When most patients think of braces, they think of the metal kind, which is most often recommended for children. This type of braces is fairly easy to care for due to their durability and long-lasting nature. Traditional braces can improve a variety of bite problems, even in severe cases, making them one of the most common choices.

Ceramic Braces
Also called tooth-colored braces, these are very similar to metal braces in function and style, though the significant difference is that their white coloring makes them much less obvious, offering a more discreet treatment for older teens and adults.

Clear Plastic Aligners
Clear aligners such as Invisalign® are removable dental trays comprised of plastic that is worn over the teeth to shift their alignment over time. Though clear aligners are not the most powerful options for braces, they are more discreet and convenient, and are selected by many adults.
