Metal Braces & More
Most patients we treat at About Faces and Braces choose traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth.
While metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment, you have several other options.
After your first free consultation, Dr. Shawn or Dr. Candice will talk to you about which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.
Fixed Vs. Removable Appliances
It’s important to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances. Fixed appliances, like braces, are attached to your teeth and aren’t taken off until you complete your treatment.
Removable appliances, like Invisalign’s aligner system, are worn about 20-22 hours a day but can be taken off easily.
Aside from the obvious differences, Invisalign aligners are best at treating mild to moderate orthodontic problems. Fixed appliances are generally needed for more serious and comprehensive treatment.
Unlike traditional braces, this kind of orthodontic treatment doesn’t rely on a system of metal or ceramic brackets and wires.
The Invisalign and Clarity Aligner systems are made up of a series of custom clear trays called aligners that are removable and nearly invisible.Invisalign Invisalign for Teens
