Types of Braces

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces move teeth just as efficiently as metal braces, except the brackets are clear, so they are less noticeable. They are most popular with adult patients due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawbacks to ceramic brackets are that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.

Pitts 21® Brackets

The Pitts 21 system has smooth rounded corners and edges of the braces are soft against your lips, creating a more comfortable experience. The low-profile design of the braces makes them protrude less, reducing irritation. The braces also operates more efficiently resulting in shorter appointment times and faster treatment time than traditional braces. The Pitts 21 system allows for healthy tooth movement and complete control of the finished alignment. 

Invisalign®

The Invisalign System is a series of clear overlay templates—called aligners—that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. This system is available to adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign system.
