Types of Braces

Clear Brackets and Metal Brackets

Dr. Tara uses primarily clear brackets for patients, both adult and teens. The brackets, which are bonded to the front of each tooth, are connected by the archwire, which helps guide the teeth into the correct positions. These brackets are very popular because the colors on the circle ties really “pop” or stand out against the tooth. In some cases, patients really want metal brackets and those can be used as well. When you come in for your New Patient Exam we will show you the colors and brackets so you will know what to expect.

Clear Braces/Aligners, including Invisalign®

Clear Aligners is another method to move teeth.  Dr. Cash has several aligner systems available to her, including Invisalign.   Any aligner is merely a series of clear overlay templates – called aligners – that is generated through computer simulation to gradually move the teeth.

Invisalign® Teen

We went to leading orthodontists, parents and teens themselves to custom-design an Invisalign system just right for the dental needs of teenagers. With a Blue Dot Wear Indicator to show how long each aligner has been worn, six free replacement aligners in case some are lost or broken, and other changes designed to accommodate growing mouths, Invisalign Teen is the perfect teeth-straightening system for today's teenagers!
