Types of Braces

Smart Clip

Smart Clip is a self-ligating appliance system for braces that, unlike other similar products, doesn’t involve opening or closing the device to insert or place archwires. The brackets are designed for easy archwire access.

In addition, colorless, light-sensitive adhesives make the procedure faster, cleaner and less noticeable. This means that patients have reduced discomfort caused by adjustments as they do not spend as much time in the chair and they receive efficient, reliable tooth movement.

Increased comfort, faster treatment time and overall reliability make the Smart Clip a good choice for many patients. If you have any questions, consult your orthodontist.

Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.

Clarity Braces

Many patients enjoy the combination of ceramic and metal because it is simultaneously attractive and sturdy. In fact, these braces are so sturdy that many doctors will recommend them to their patients who play sports. Patients are allowed to engage in most everyday activities without fear of delaying or impeding their progress.

Also, because they have a semi-transparent color that will not stain, patients can proceed with necessary orthodontic treatment without having to feel self-conscious. In addition, Clarity braces’ smooth, rounded shape allows for greater patient comfort.

These features are designed for patients regardless of age. If you have questions about Clarity, consult your orthodontist.
