Metal braces are the most popular with kids and teenagers. They love using different colors of ligature ties. These braces are much smaller than ever before. We choose to use Self-ligating brackets that reduce friction between brackets and wires by eliminating use of ligature ties, thus,reducing total treatment time.
Translucent clear ceramic braces are the most popular with our adult patients. You have to be very close to someone to be able to see them. Yet, because they are a ceramic material, they are more fragile.
Invisalign Teen and Adult Treatment options are also available for our patients. This is a series of clear plastic trays that move your teeth to the ideal position.
