Comfortable & Modern Treatments
Dental technology gets better every year, and you'll find the latest and most comfortable treatments at Brady Orthodontics.
Invisalign® for Adults & Teens
Unlike traditional braces, this kind of orthodontic treatment doesn’t rely on a system of metal or ceramic brackets and wires. The Invisalign system is made up of a series of fully customized, clear trays called aligners that are nearly invisible and completely removable.
Their soft plastic also means no friction or abrasions inside the mouth, so they are more comfortable to wear. The aligners are changed out weekly, and they'll gradually move your teeth into the best position for your smile.Learn More
While traditional metal braces remain the most popular option for orthodontic treatment, ceramic braces can be a great choice for some patients. Sometimes known as clear braces, these provide a much less noticeable method of treatment.
Ceramic braces use the same components as traditional braces, but instead of metal, the brackets on the front side of the teeth are made of see-through ceramic material.Learn More
Traditional metal braces are the most widely used type of fixed orthodontic appliance. They're a reliable, effective, and economical option that have the stood the test of time for over a century.

Fixed vs. Removable Appliances
You should understand the difference between our two kinds of appliances: fixed and removable. Dr. Brady attaches fixed appliances (like braces) to your teeth and he won't remove them 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, Dr. Brady uses Invisalign aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems. He generally uses fixed appliances when he needs to address serious and comprehensive issues.
