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

Amazing! So glad we found this place! After being rejected by a couple of different orthodontists, Greater Madison Orthodontics was more than willing to work with us. The wonderful staff helped to advocate for my daughter’s orthodontic needs,and worked tirelessly for nearly a year to resolve issues preventing insurance from going through.

Dr. Fennig is wonderful! He is sharp and knowledgeable; a true expert in his field. He is great with the kids! He is warm, kind, and funny! He cracks jokes and seems to always have a smile on his face! His office staff and assistants are kind and welcoming. They make an effort to know your name and always greet you with a smile.

I highly recommend Greater Madison Ortho if you are in need of orthodontic work!
