Orthodontic treatment serves to correct crooked teeth and improve the health of bad bites, and it seems that almost every person you know has undergone orthodontic care or is currently sporting braces. It is never too late to receive braces, and you have a variety of options to choose from for orthodontic treatment.

Modern orthodontic care has enabled braces to provide many wonderful benefits and branch out into several options to address different alignment needs for patients of all ages. We invite you to learn more about the following options for braces:

Traditional Metal Braces
These are the most common choice for braces, and are often recommended for children and teens because they are very durable and fairly easy to care for. Traditional braces are also popular because they can improve the majority of bite problems, even when cases are severe.

Ceramic Braces
These tooth-colored braces look and function very similar to metal braces, but they are clear or white colored to offer more discreet treatment. Ceramic braces are recommended for older teens and adults because they are more fragile than metal braces.

Clear Plastic Aligners
Invisalign® clear aligners are removable plastic trays that cover the teeth to adjust the bite alignment over a certain period of time. Clear aligners are not as powerful in shifting the teeth as traditional braces, but they are very convenient and discreet, making them popular among adults.
