The traditional method of creating a beautiful smile now has new offerings – clear, gold or silver brackets.
Braces (sometimes called brackets) are the tried-and-true appliances of the orthodontist. They can be used from very simple to extremely complex cases and can be made out of traditional metal or ceramic materials (clear braces). Braces are a great choice for any treatment.
Why Choose Traditional Orthodontic Braces
Set It and Forget It
You show up for appointments, keep your teeth clean, wear your rubber bands, and avoid certain foods. They’ll do the work.
Works For All Cases
Braces can tackle even the most complex cases, including major bite issues.
Braces are great for patients of all ages – children and adults alike.
