Types of Braces


traditional metal bracesTRADITIONAL METAL BRACES
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.

Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.


invisalignCLEAR ALIGNERS
Clear aligners are a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable acrylic trays that straighten your teeth like braces. Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are less of a hassle.


Testimonial

When I suddenly had an orthodontic problem after 20+ years since my last need for one, I immediately began asking around for recommendations. Coworkers sent me no farther than Dr. Doshi and Greater Madison Orthodontics. I received a next-day appointment for an evaluation of my problem and an appointment the next week for the fix. The entire staff welcomed me and my kiddos (I didn't have child care that day but no problem! The staff at Greater Madison Orthodontics were so accommodating!) and I was in the chair immediately. Dr. Doshi assessed the issue, laid out a complete and thorough treatment plan and discussed other issues she noted that we could choose to address if desired. Dr Doshi communicates clearly, actively seeks your input into the treatment plan and could not be any nicer. The team she surrounds herself with reflects the same values, making Greater Madison Orthodontics the easy choice
should you find yourself needing an orthodontist like I did.
