There is a reason why braces have been the number one choice for correcting teeth for so long. They simply work!  Traditional braces correct crowded teeth, misaligned bites, and jaw problems. Braces can also help eliminate speech problems.

Braces have changed a lot over the years.   They are smaller and more comfortable. To keep them fun, the elastics that tie wires in place are  available in colors.  Patients get to choose new colors when they come to each appointment.

Ceramic brackets are also available in a clear color for people wanting a more subtle look. Now that’s something to smile about!

Traditional braces are metal brackets that are bonded to your teeth with a wire connecting them. They require periodic adjustments to ensure that your teeth continue to straighten over time.

 

 

Braces can ensure that you end up with the straight teeth you want. The results of braces will last a lifetime and will give you the confidence for which you have been looking.  It is very important to understand that retainers after braces will be important to maintaining a healthy, straight smile.

 

 

 

 

Colored elastics hold wires in place.  Patients often have fun designing a smile that suits their personality and mood. The colors can be changed whenever a new wire is place or adjusted.  For people who prefer a more subtle appearance to align teeth, other alternatives are available.  .

 

 

 

 

 

 

We offer clear braces, which are much less noticeable than metal braces but still give patients the smile they deserve.

Clear aligners are not the same as clear braces. Clear aligners are plastic trays that you wear like you would wear a mouthguard. Clear braces are like metal braces, but they are almost invisible.

Clear braces have many advantages. They are almost invisible, giving patients who do not want traditional braces another alternative.

They also help improve patients’ confidence. They can still get the care they deserve without worrying about what people are saying about their teeth.

 

After a thorough examination with X-rays, we will be happy to discuss your many options for improving your smile. We will go over the advantages and disadvantages of each so that we can determine the right course of treatment.
