redhairbracessmileIf you have found that clear braces are not quite right for your needs, you have likely begun examining traditional braces to improve your malocclusion – or the improper alignment of your teeth. While you may think you know all there is to know about bracket-and-wire braces systems, you will likely be pleasantly surprised to find out that there’s a whole lot you have probably never heard of before. First, braces provide an extensive array of benefits, treating even severe misalignment problems, so most patients can achieve the beautifully uniform smile they desire. Even more exciting? You have a variety of options when it comes to choosing your orthodontic treatment. Wondering what we have in store for your smile? Learn more:

Types of Braces

First, traditional braces – or metal braces – are a wonderful selection if you are looking for a solid way to improve nearly any type of malocclusion. You will wear metal brackets on your teeth, connected with a wire and bands. However, we also offer other options you may not have considered before depending on your needs, including:

  • Six Month Smiles: This treatment also includes brackets and wires but it’s a little different. It’s an accelerated treatment that is purely cosmetic in nature. Rather than improving comprehensive misalignment, we will simply straighten out the appearance of your front, more visible teeth. You can expect accelerated treatment using low-force technology, so your smile looks dramatically more beautiful within as few as six months.
  • Lingual Braces: You can achieve an incognito treatment without relying on clear braces by considering lingual braces. This treatment system includes the use of brackets that you wear on the back of your teeth, rather than the front. You may need to expect a slightly long treatment duration but you can rest assured that onlookers will have no idea that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.
