Braces for Kids and Adults
We offer braces for kids and braces for adults of all ages. We know there are many options available when selecting the best type of braces to meet your desires and treatment needs.
Types of Braces
Great Smiles Orthodontics often uses small metal brackets bonded with a fluoride releasing agent. This offers our patients braces that are less noticeable and easier to clean. For the most adventurous, there are always the bright neon and glow-in-the-dark elastics and rubber bands.
Clear braces, made of ceramic or plastic, may also be used for patients who prefer not to have metal brackets on their front teeth. Those who have concerns about their appearance while wearing braces may choose lingual braces. These braces attach to the back of the patient’s teeth and are not easily visible. Lingual braces are only suitable in certain cases.
Dr. Savage and Dr. Weissman are also trained and certified to offer “invisible” braces. This offers a revolutionary new way to straighten teeth without braces. Using advanced 3D computer imaging technology, Invisalign and Invisalign Teen creates a series of nearly undetectable, custom-made aligners to move your teeth instead of brackets and wires.
Whatever you desire, a careful examination will allow you to have the best treatment for your own individual needs.
