Thanks to today’s technology, patients now have more options when it comes to wearing braces. While regular metal braces are still widely used, clear braces are becoming increasingly popular along with removable appliances that can be used for mild cases of misaligned teeth.
Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today’s metal braces feature a smaller, smoother design for greater comfort and improved appearance.
Clear brackets are a highly aesthetic bracket made from a special ceramic material. The natural color of the bracket makes it a perfect fit for patients concerned about appearance, while delivering a result comparable to metal brackets.

Invisalign® and Invisalign® Teen
The Invisalign system consists of a series of clear aligners specifically designed with exact calculations to gradually move the teeth. Their greatest appeal is that teeth can be straightened without anyone knowing that you are wearing "braces". However, Invisalign treatment is not suitable for everyone. Ask if you are a candidate.
