Traditional braces may be used for either functional or aesthetic purposes. It is very common for both teenagers and adults to wear traditional braces. Today, they are available in a range of colors, allowing for an expression of your unique personality.
Made of stainless steel, these braces use a metal bracket along with your choice of colorful elastic ties to hold them the wire in place. These apply gentle pressure which gradually shifts the teeth into the desired position.
Tried and true, traditional metal braces have helped countless millions achieve a beautiful smile.
While we believe traditional metal braces are beautiful on everyone, some may prefer a clear device. Invisalign® is an aesthetic option, in that instead of metal, it utilizes clear plastic trays which are fitted over your teeth. These trays are nearly invisible, but work just as well as traditional braces. This option is best for patients who don’t want the appearance of wearing braces.
Additionally, the trays can be removed. This enables you to enjoy certain foods you cannot consume with traditional braces. Because they can be removed, it’s important that adherence to wearing the trays is embraced. To enforce this, there are small indicator dots on the tray which gradually wear away with use. This helps parents know whether their child has been wearing their trays consistently.
Early treatment for children is critical to intercept the development of serious dental problems. Particularly, the ages of 7-9 are when a child’s future problems begin to develop. By specializing our care toward this age group, we are able to see potential problems and stop them before they develop.
We customize our care towards the unique needs of children. We understand that dentistry can be frightening for them. That’s why our exceptional experience and desire to provide best-in-class service is critical to developing a lifelong passion for good habits in children.
While early childhood is critical, we are passionate about treating all ages. Children, teens, and adults who pass through our doors all experience the optimum care afforded by modern dentistry. Employing the best tools available today, and our countless years of experience, we aim to stop problems before they start, and empower you to take control of your dental health.
