Only the rare person is born with perfectly aligned teeth. Orthodontics can make a huge difference for the majority of people, adults and children alike. There are several types of braces available. Speak with Dr. Laura Rothe to discover which type best meets your needs and goals.
Traditional braces are made from high-quality stainless steel. They use brackets that are attached to each tooth to anchor the archwires. The archwires put pressure on the teeth to slowly move into their ideal positions.
Tooth-colored braces, which are also called ceramic braces, function in the same manner as traditional braces. However, the brackets (and often the wires) are made of ceramic, which can be matched to the shade of your teeth. These braces are less visible to others, so they are a great aesthetic choice for the adult who wishes to get braces.
If you choose to straighten your smile with aligners, clear aligners will be made to assist your teeth at each stage of your orthodontic treatment. Your custom-made aligners are worn over the teeth and are easy to remove. You can eat what you like and brush and floss easily.
