A majority of the patients we treat here at Brady Orthodontics will end up choosing traditional metal braces as a way to straighten their teeth. While metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment, you have several other options as well.
After your free initial consultation, Dr. Brady 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 distinction between fixed and removable appliances. Fixed appliances, like braces, are attached to the teeth and aren’t taken off until treatment is complete.
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.
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.
Though past incarnations have been bulky, awkward, or even painful, today's metal braces are smaller, lighter, and more comfortable to wear than ever before.Read 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
Invisalign® & Invisalign Teen
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
