Metal Braces

Consisting of metal brackets adhered to your teeth and connected by wire, metal braces are the most traditional option in orthodontics. Crooked and crowded teeth, a misaligned bite, and jaw problems can all be corrected with metal braces. Treatment length can vary but our orthodontists can brief you on how long it will take to gradually straighten your teeth and align your jaw.

Ceramic (Clear) Braces

Less noticeable and more toned down than regular metal braces, ceramic braces use clear or tooth-colored brackets and a more discreet wire color to straighten teeth. Ceramic braces can fix many of the same smile problems as traditional braces and are ideal for those concerned about having visible metal on teeth.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces utilize traditional metal brackets and wires but instead of being affixed to the front of teeth, they are placed on the back. This makes them nearly invisible when you smile so you can progress throughout treatment in a less obvious way. The metal components of lingual braces are also customized by our orthodontists to match the shape of your teeth.

Customized Clear Braces

A spin on traditional metal braces, LightForce customized clear braces are the world’s only 3D printed braces made just for you. Our orthodontists use entirely digital planning software to create your personalized treatment plan and develop unique, made-to-order brackets. You can also feel more confident while wearing braces as the brackets are printed using a material designed to match your natural tooth shade.

Self-Ligating Braces

For those wanting traditional braces but without the colored elastics, we introduce self-ligating braces. Though they are the same size as regular metal braces, they feature a specialized clip where elastics would normally be to support the archwire as it guides teeth into position. Our orthodontists recommend this type of braces to patients interested in less adjustments during treatment.

Orthodontics for Adults

Who said only children and teens could undergo orthodontic treatment? It’s never too late to change the alignment and appearance of your teeth. Our orthodontists encourage adults dissatisfied with their smile to consider traditional braces as well as more “invisible” options like ceramic braces and Invisalign® clear aligners.

Phase 1 Orthodontics

Phase 1 orthodontics, also known as interceptive treatment, is designed to create a proper foundation in terms of normal jaw and dental development before progressing into the actual straightening of teeth. Common oral problems like protruding front teeth, underbites or overbites, and more are treated during this stage before all permanent teeth erupt.

Phase 2 Orthodontics

The main goal of Phase 2 orthodontics is to move teeth into proper position and improve bite, appearance, and function. Not every patient will require two phases of treatment as most orthodontic problems can be corrected in one comprehensive stage of treatment. Our orthodontists will evaluate the starting point of your child’s smile and determine whether two phases are needed.

Palatal Expanders

Palatal expanders are oral devices used to slowly expand the roof of the mouth and effectively widen the upper jaw. These types of devices are more commonly constructed for pre-adolescent patients, but our orthodontists may prescribe one for teens as well to fix a narrow jaw.

Orthodontic Retention

No one wants to complete treatment only for their teeth to shift back into misalignment. To prevent unwanted movement, you will be instructed to wear a custom-made retainer for as often as directed. The retention phase may seem like a bothersome extra step, but it ensures you keep the beautiful smile you and our orthodontist worked hard to create.
