Types of Orthodontic Appliances


Traditional Metal Braces

 These are the most common type of braces. They consist of metal brackets and wires. The brackets are bonded to your teeth, and the wires are adjusted periodically to gradually shift your teeth into their desired positions.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are placed behind your teeth, making them virtually invisible from the outside. They are a popular choice for those who want effective treatment without visible braces.


Invisalign: Invisalign is a leading clear aligner system that offers a more inconspicuous approach to orthodontic treatment. The system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. You can take them out for eating and cleaning, making them convenient and discreet.


Retainers are essential to maintain the alignment of your teeth after active treatment. They come in two main types

Hawley Retainers: These are removable retainers with a combination of acrylic and metal wires. They are adjustable and durable.
Clear Retainers: Clear retainers are transparent, removable trays that fit snugly over your teeth. They are discreet and easy to clean.

Additional Options

In addition to the primary types of orthodontic appliances, we offer various specialized options. These include:

Headgear: Headgear may be prescribed in specific cases to address jaw discrepancies and correct bite issues.

Functional Appliances: Functional appliances help in repositioning the jaw, particularly in growing children, to achieve the desired bite and alignment.

Space Maintainers: Space maintainers are used in pediatric orthodontics to preserve space for permanent teeth to come in properly.

Benefits of Orthodontic Appliances

Improved Oral Health

Orthodontic appliances significantly contribute to oral health. By correcting misaligned teeth, they help prevent dental problems such as cavities, gum disease, and abnormal wear. Proper alignment makes it easier to maintain optimal oral hygiene.

Enhanced Appearance

Beyond health benefits, orthodontic appliances offer a remarkable aesthetic transformation. Aligned teeth enhance facial symmetry and smile attractiveness, boosting your self-confidence and self-esteem.

Confidence Boost

Many of our patients report a profound boost in their confidence and self-esteem after orthodontic treatment. They enjoy a newfound sense of self-assuredness, both personally and professionally.

Better Functionality

Orthodontic appliances not only improve the appearance but also enhance oral function. This includes improved speech, better chewing, and overall comfort when using your teeth.

The Treatment Process

Your journey to a straight, healthy smile involves several key stages:


The first step is a consultation with our orthodontic specialists. During this visit, we'll thoroughly assess your orthodontic needs, discuss your goals, and outline a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique situation.


Following the consultation, the fitting stage involves the creation of your orthodontic appliance. For braces, this includes bonding brackets to your teeth. For aligners, we'll take impressions to create your custom series of clear trays.


Throughout your treatment, you'll have periodic appointments for adjustments and monitoring. These appointments ensure that your orthodontic appliance is doing its job correctly, and we'll make any necessary tweaks.


As you approach the end of your treatment, we'll discuss the removal of your orthodontic appliance. It's a moment of celebration as you get to enjoy your beautifully aligned smile.
