Traditional Metal or Clear Braces

Metal Braces – These are the traditional braces everyone talks about.  They are often seen in children and teenagers. Metal braces are the most affordable and predictable system of brackets and wires to move the teeth over time.

Ceramic Braces – These are exactly like metal braces, however, they are white in color to blend into the teeth and they are made of ceramic. They help make the braces look less inconspicuous however they are often harder to use.



Did you know that you don’t have to have crooked teeth to be considered a candidate for braces? 

Even patients with a little bit of crowding can show significant benefits from orthodontic treatment. Straighter teeth are easier to clean, therefore, can help prevent decay and gum disease. Furthermore, teeth that are in better alignment can also help with jaw or TMJ problems that are associated with headaches or migraines. 



Dr. Hira can help determine whether braces are right for you. However, chances are you could benefit from treatment if you are worried about things like crowding, overlapping or protruding of your teeth. Straight teeth not only function better, but also looks great. It would be easy to come in for a consult if you would like more information.
