Make Braces a More Fun & Comfortable Experience

When you think of orthodontic treatment, you probably picture traditional metal braces.

How Braces Work

Traditional braces use a system of brackets, bands, and wires to correct the alignment of your teeth and straighten your smile. They require regular adjustments to advance treatment and achieve your final alignment goals. With a variety of color choices possible at every visit, usually our younger patients choose traditional braces as a treatment of choice when offered.
