More advanced than ever before, traditional braces are now smaller and sleeker for a better overall look and feel. Advanced technology and modern designs give traditional braces a whole new meaning. Traditional braces can fix a variety of alignment problems, making it a great option for both teens and adults. We often recommend traditional metal braces when a patient has a severe misalignment. This orthodontic solution offers the greatest flexibility and results when it comes to alignment for your smile.
Esthetic braces are made from clear, ceramic material. Similar to traditional braces, esthetic braces straighten your teeth in the same way without bringing extra attention to your smile. Using brackets and wires to gradually shift your teeth into the right position, clear braces will align your teeth and give you a more confident smile. Clear braces are a great choice for teens or adults looking for a discreet way to straighten their teeth.

The first step in the traditional braces process is an initial consultation. A consultation allows your orthodontist and our team to examine your smile, discuss your goals and build a workable treatment plan. After a consultation with your orthodontist, you will have an estimated time for the alignment process. With traditional braces, treatment time varies depending on the condition of your smile. At times, some prep may be needed before the braces can be placed such as a tooth extraction for a crowded smile or removal of excessive gum tissue.
Once all prep is completed, your traditional braces can be secured to your teeth. Consistent check-ups will allow your orthodontist to make adjustments as needed to keep your smile on the right track. By adjusting your braces, your orthodontist can determine which tooth will move and when they will move. With careful planning, your traditional braces can give you a confident, more beautiful smile! Following treatment, a custom retainer will be made to keep your teeth in place as they adjust to their new position. If you are ready to begin your orthodontic care, call our team today!
One of the first steps is to match the color of the ceramic to your teeth. This helps them blend in and make them much less noticeable. Much like traditional braces, clear braces require regular visits for adjustments. During these visits, your orthodontist will ensure that straightening is on the right track. By making necessary adjustments, your orthodontist will determine which teeth will move and where they will move. As your teeth gradually shift into place, you will begin to see a more confident smile. Once treatment is complete, your teeth will be fully aligned and a custom retainer will be worn as your teeth adjust to their new position.
