Metal braces are the most familiar type of braces and continue to be the most popular option. They have the ability to treat a wide spectrum of malocclusions
Ceramic braces are less noticeable than metal braces. They are clear in nature and thus more appealing to some than metal. The translucent nature of these braces are designed so that it can match the natural color of your teeth.
Invisalign and Spark are examples of clear aligners. Many treatments can be approached with clear aligners. It is unique in the fact that they will give you a straight smile without being noticeable. The removable clear aligner trays allow one to be able to eat anything they like as well as maintain oral hygiene with flossing and brushing as one normally would. With a first consultation we can discuss if clear aligners are right for you.
In most cases, problems with a person’s bite or alignment of teeth can be corrected with orthodontic treatment. However, sometimes skeletal and dental irregularities are not so easy to remedy and that is when Orthognathic Surgery (corrective jaw surgery) might be recommended. Orthognathic surgery is performed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon who completes dental school as well as residency. Individuals who have problems related to jaw and tooth alignment as well as facial asymmetries may benefit from this orthognathic surgery. These procedures can help with difficulties in talking, sleeping, or chewing.
