Types of Braces

Thanks to advances in orthodontic technology, Moin Orthodontics can provide our patients with more options when it comes to wearing braces than ever before. While traditional metal braces are still widely used, clear braces are very popular with teens and adults who prefer a more discreet option.  Another popular option are Invisalign removable aligners, an easily removable alternative to straighten teeth. Dr. Moin will help you determine which treatment option is right for you.

Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces used today. They are smaller and more comfortable than ever before and constructed of high-grade space age metal alloys. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on teenage and adult patients who have aesthetic concerns. They are more fragile due to their ceramic nature and require extra attention. 

Invisalign Aligners

Clear aligners, such as Invisalign, use a series of invisible,  and removable aligners to straighten your teeth. Since they are removable so you are not limited in what you can eat and drink during treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are less of a hassle. There are fewer unexpected appointments with aligners.
