Here at Bullen Orthodontics, we are proud to offer many types of braces to give our patients the care they deserve.
After a thorough examination with x-rays, we can decide what braces would work best for you.
When most people think about braces, they think of the traditional metal braces. They are the most common type of braces used for orthodontic treatment.
Though they look uncomfortable, today they are more comfortable than ever. They are made of high-grade stainless steel, and they work by using metal brackets and archwires. You can even add colored bands to your braces, giving them a more personal and colorful touch!
Ceramic braces are popular because they are clear and less noticeable than traditional metal braces. They are most commonly used on older teenagers and adults who want a better smile without others knowing they are getting treatment.
Ceramic braces are larger and easier to break than traditional braces. Brushing your teeth can be a little harder since the braces cover more surface area of each tooth. They are usually used on the upper front teeth instead of the lower ones because they break easily.
Invisalign® is completely invisible, making it many people’s first choice. The plastic trays are more comfortable to wear, and they work very well. Because this treatment doesn’t use metal, you don’t have to worry about them causing any irritation in your mouth.
Invisalign® aligners are removable so you can continue to eat whatever you want. You just need to brush your teeth and the aligners after every meal to keep them clean. It is easier to maintain good dental health while wearing Invisalign® aligners since you can remove them to brush your teeth.
