Types of Braces

Metal Braces

The brackets, which are bonded to the front of each tooth, are connected by the archwire, which helps guide the teeth into the correct positions. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.

Ceramic Braces

The only drawbacks to ceramic brackets are that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.

ClearCorrect™ Aligners

Aligner-and-logo-450pxClearCorrect™ is a clear and simple alternative to braces.

It's a series of clear, custom-made, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth as you wear them, with each aligner moving your teeth just a little bit at a time.

They're practically invisible, so most people won't even know you're in treatment; they fit you perfectly, so they're more comfortable than regular braces; and they're removable, so you can eat whatever you like and clean your teeth normally.
