Getting orthodontic treatment can be a big hurdle in your life. Whether you are a first time user for orthodontic treatments, or an individual who wants to switch to a different treatment, it is important to know what each treatment can do for you. Some individuals may covet aesthetics in their braces, while others would prefer longer-lasting and low-maintenance braces. Below is a list of the most popular options:

– Metal Braces: Metal braces are the most commonly used brackets. Metal brackets are glued to each tooth, and wires connect each bracket. Rubber bands are also required.

– Ceramic Braces: Ceramic braces are similar to metal braces, but not as visible. They offer more aesthetic and cosmetic appeal over traditional metal braces.

– Lingual Braces: Lingual braces are similar to metal braces, but lingual braces are attached to the back of the teeth, not the visible front.

– Invisalign® Clear Aligners: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible aligners that can be removed daily.

Weighing your options for orthodontic treatment doesn’t have to be done alone.
