One of the major benefits to contemporary orthodontics is that there are many options available for patients. This means that you can choose which treatment method is right for you. Three treatment methods are the most common. These include:
- Metal Braces – This is the most common type of orthodontic treatment and is the image that comes to many people’s mind when they think about straightening their teeth. Today, these braces are made of high-quality stainless steel, and they are more aesthetic, comfortable and smaller than ever!
- Ceramic (Clear) Braces – This option has been growing in popularity amongst adults because of their aesthetic viability. They are made of a translucent material that appears almost completely clear, which means that they blend in with your smile. The downside to this type of braces is that they are more fragile that metal braces, and elastic ties end up discolored between your visits to our office.
- Clear Aligners – You may have heard of the Invisalign® system, ClearCorrect or one of the other clear aligner treatments that are available today. Clear aligners are custom-made trays composed of plastic that gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. This treatment method implements a computer-generated simulation in order to help ensure the optimum results. This treatment option is very discreet, which makes it very popular amongst adults and adolescents
