Traditional Orthodontics

Of course, you can’t talk about straightening teeth without bringing up braces. Even after hundreds of years, metal brackets and wires remain the most reliable solution for complex orthodontic cases. As they move the teeth slowly towards their ideal position, a patient will need to return to our dental office periodically to have their braces tightened. While braces are typically recommended for children, adults can wear them as well (although treatment times are usually longer since their jaws have stopped developing and are less receptive to change).

Invisalign® Clear Braces

Older patients with mild to moderate orthodontic problems can ask Dr. Graber about using Invisalign as an image-friendly alternative to braces. A series of clear removable aligners will be created based on 3D images of your teeth. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks to make the necessary adjustments; you’ll only remove them to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Not only is the treatment time generally much shorter than that of traditional braces, but you’ll be able to smile with confidence throughout the entire experience.
