Typical average treatment time for traditional braces is 24-30 months, the average treatment time with quick braces is just 6-12 months, and in some cases, only a few months.
Types of Braces:
Metal: This is the most common type. They are made of high grade stainless steel. Today’s braces are smaller, more comfortable and attractive than ever before. We use a mini twin bracket which is one of the smallest on the market and all of our brackets are new for each patient. Some orthodontists and dentist's re-use brackets. We also offer more than 25 different colors you can add to your braces!
Ceramic Braces: These are also known as clear braces. The brackets we use are made of a man-made Safire with makes strong and very resistant to discoloration. They are most popular with adults due to their cosmetic appeal. There are some inherent drawbacks to this bracket. They are slightly more bulk and can be more fragile.
Invisalign: The Invisalign system is a series of clear aligners. They look much like modern day retainers. They are computer generated and gradually move teeth over time. This system however effective does have limitations has to how effectively they can move teeth.
