Braces are fixed orthodontic appliances that are bonded to the teeth, which help gently straighten the teeth and improve the overall bite or occlusion. At most appointments, the orthodontic wire will be changed to gradually adjust your teeth alignment.
Recent advances in braces technology of braces has led to the emergence of self-ligating brackets. These brackets have a door or clip instead of an elastic tie, which securely keeps the wire in place and allows the teeth to move more efficiently and comfortably.
For those looking for a less noticeable orthodontic treatment option, we offer clear self-ligating (ceramic) braces, which blend into the color of the teeth, and are just as effective as regular braces.
