Self-ligating- we also offer Empower self-ligating brackets, meaning they have a ‘little door’ that the wire ‘snaps’ into, cutting down your appointment times and making it much easier to keep your braces clean.
Ceramic: they work similar to traditional metal braces, but the brackets and wires are ‘clear’ and therefore less visible.
Lingual: metal brackets and wires that go behind your teeth.
Invisalign (clear aligners): a series of custom-made, clear aligners created specifically for you based on 3D images of your mouth.
