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.

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

What a wonderful experience.  My son was very worried about getting braces. Dr. Doshi and her staff were so kind and caring with my son.  They really took their time and walked him through the process.  Dr. Doshi listened to our concerns and difficulties we had and worked with us to find solutions that would work for our son.  I am so satisfied with how Dr. Doshi and her staff treated us, I would highly recommend them!!!
