Clear Braces

Clear braces are made of translucent ceramic material. They are popular with adult patients because of their cosmetic appeal. However, ceramic brackets can have certain drawbacks. They tend to be more fragile and can break more easily than metal brackets. There can be more friction between the bracket and the arch wire slowing down tooth movement in certain cases. We will be happy to discuss their use in your particular case.

Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most common type of braces. They are made of high-grade stainless steel . Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable, and more attractive. The arch wire is held into the bracket slot by an elastic ligature. Our young patients love choosing colorful ligatures for their braces. These elastic ties are changed at each visit.


A series of clear aligners that have been generated by a computer can gradually straighten teeth. They need to be worn 22 hours per day but can be removed for eating and tooth brushing. This system is available to adults and older teens. Please ask us if you are a candidate for clear aligners.
