There are various ways to correct crooked or crowded teeth including traditional braces and invisalign. Traditional tooth movement is accomplished by placing brackets and wires on the front of your teeth to move your teeth in increments over several months. Another technique works by way of placing, in sequence, clear, hard plastic retainers over your teeth. Each varies in shape and is customized to your bite. They must be removed for eating and may influence your speech. Whether you are an adult or a teen, our dentist will help you decide which method is best for you, though we only offer traditional braces within our office.
