Types of Braces

 

Clarity

Clarity™ braces feature a comfortable design with a translucent appearance. Made from a hard ceramic material, these braces won’t stain or discolor. With the same performance as metal braces, many patients are now choosing the clear option – Clarity!

Clear

Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawback to ceramic brackets is that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.

Invisalign

The Invisalign System is a series of clear overlay templates called aligners that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. This system is available to adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign system.

SPEED System

The Speed Appliance is a self-ligating device made from nickel titanium, making it easier to operate the opening and closing apertures, while offering you strong, reliable materials to make your treatment progress with efficiency and speed. Since this system uses no ties, patients have found it easier to keep clean, resulting in better overall hygiene while in treatment. The self-ligation system also cuts down on patient discomfort and gets rid of the friction caused by other appliances.  It is small and less noticeable, giving way to better aesthetics for our patients.
