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, more attractive and most cost-effective.
Ceramic Braces — Advances in technology allow orthodontists to offer clear or tooth-colored braces made of ceramic or polycarbonate. Clear braces function just as traditional metal braces do but are much less noticeable. Clear braces are also more discrete than metal braces and more cost-effective than clear aligners.
Invisalign® — Invisalign uses a clear aligner system to gradually move teeth into a more desirable position. No wires or brackets are used. These clear aligners are used for more mild to moderate cases, are virtually clear and are pre-planned prior to treatment.

Your Orthodontic Treatment Journey
- Step 1: Complimentary Consultation — We'll take the time to get to know you so we can gain an understanding of your individual needs, goals and concerns, if any. Afterwards, we will complete your complimentary initial set of orthodontic records. Your treatment plan will then be discussed and we will answer all of your questions to set you at ease so you have full confidence in your treatment decision!
- Step 2: Treatment — Treatment will begin with a 1 hour appointment for the placement of the brackets followed by at-home instructions. Return appointments will be scheduled as needed in 4 to 8 week intervals until the treatment plan is completed. The average treatment plan is about 2 years for traditional braces; however, timelines are unique to each patient and dependent on the condition of the teeth.
- Step 3: Post Treatment — A one-month post-follow up appointment will be scheduled along with additional appointments as needed to ensure all teeth are set. Retainer checks and adjustments will be made regularly to verify fit and encourage continual use.
