DN Orthodontics utilizes the most comfortable, efficient and technologically advanced types of braces available. Because we offer the latest technology in braces, more choices are available to our patients. Regular metal braces are still the most widely used, yet other types such as clear braces and Invisalign have gained popularity.
Most people are familiar with traditional braces. They are the type that go on the outside of your teeth. Traditional metal braces are usually made from stainless steel but ceramics can also now be used in traditional braces. This helps them blend in with your natural tooth color.
Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have aesthetic concerns. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger than metal braces.
Traditional braces are excellent in treating all types of cases and are fairly easy to maintain. Treatment can range anywhere from 6 months (relapse & very simple cases) to around two years (complex bite cases). They take about an hour to fit and then are usually adjusted every 6- 8 weeks, with regular visits lasting about 15 minutes.
Our office provides the most state-of-the-art procedures available, ensuring optimal results for our patients. Invisalign® aligners are a revolutionary system that utilizes 3-D computer graphics to design and manufacture customized clear appliances called removable “Aligners”. Invisalign appliances are virtually undetectable, easy-to-use and comfortable to wear. Invisalign® effectively treats the vast majority of adults and adolescents with narrow arches, crowding, space closure, relapse, and anterior intrusion.

Invisalign Teen uses the same Invisalign technology as adult aligners, moving teeth gradually with each set of clear, comfortable plastic aligners. But because teens (and their mouths) are constantly on the move, we’ve added a few special features.
