Traditional Braces


Braces are the most used way to straighten teeth. They are metal or ceramic pieces that are bonded to the teeth. They have a slot which accommodates the wire which connects all braces and bands together. The active component which moves the teeth is the wire.  The wire can be stainless steel or nickel-titanium and has some information incorporated in it, so by tending to straighten, it straightens the teeth. The most popular type of braces are ceramic braces because they mimic the color of the teeth. 

Popular Alternatives

Invisalign braces are a popular new alternative to metal braces that are virtually invisible, more affordable and faster than traditional braces.  They correct crowded teeth that are degrading the appearance of your smile and eliminate embarrassing gaps between your teeth.  For an “invisible” solution to metal braces, Invisalign braces use clear trays instead of bulky metal brackets so you can straighten your teeth without covering your teeth when you smile. Treatment is FAST! Most cases take less than a year.
