Metal braces are what patients think of as traditional braces as they are the most common orthodontic treatment. Progress has made it possible so that today's metal braces are made with high-grade stainless steel and are smaller, more comfortable, and more attractive.



Ceramic braces follow the same basic structure of metal braces, but are made of clear material offering patients an aesthetic solution. The translucent material is more fragile and the elastic bands can discolor between appointments



The Invisalign System offers a solution outside of the traditional bracket system. With a progressing series of aligners designed to gradually shift teeth and even correct some bite problems, this is a very popular treatment for both our adult and teenage patients.


smartclip.pngSmartClip™ braces were designed for a more comfortable treatment by using a self-ligating passive bracket system. With this advanced technology, there is often a reduction in the number of adjustments required as well as treatment time.


clear.pngClarity™ braces take the same aesthetic approach as clear braces while maintaining the performance of metal braces, but will not stain or discolor offering a truly translucent appearance.

Self-ligating Braces
