Braces have changed a great deal in the past 20 years, and Our team continues to be at forefront of those changes that provide the best results in the shortest amount of time – and with the greatest comfort. The braces that we offer can be either metal or clear and on the front or back side of the teeth, depending on your preference. All of our braces incorporate smoother surfaces and are engineered for faster adjustments at each visit.
At your initial appointment you’ll be able to check out all the options, and discuss what type of braces suit your lifestyle and look. If you prefer a removable, discreet solution,Dr.Hanoun and Dr. Issa is also a provider of Invisalign treatment and is happy to discuss that option with you as well.
Even though there are many types of braces, traditional braces are still the most popular. Great strides have been made since they were first used, and they are becoming more comfortable and effective.
Traditional braces use stainless steel brackets and archwires to move your teeth into their proper position. Many teenagers like to decorate their braces with colored rubber bands to give them a colorful and unique smile.
The Damon® System uses self-ligating brackets and hi-tech light-force archwires to improve your bite and smile. It is minimally invasive, yet it has proven to be very effective. The results are often extraordinary.
Incognito – Clear/Hidden Braces or Lingual Braces
Lingual braces are similar to traditional braces except that they are customized to attach to the inside of your teeth and are hidden from view. They are a great option for moderate to severe requirements and straighten your teeth without the look of traditional braces. Lingual braces are a discreet way to straighten your teeth and provide a perfect alternative to conventional braces for esthetically minded individuals. Lingual braces are “fixed” to the teeth so they stay in until treatment is complete.
We use the Incognito brand of lingual braces, providing you with a fully customized set of braces. The results are beautiful and the ease of wear is too because they are designed to fit your teeth and mouth perfectly. They are a great alternative when Invisalign is not an option for you.
