Few people are lucky enough to be born with perfect teeth, but orthodontic treatment can produce beautiful results. With advancements in the orthodontic field, there are several braces options that generate great results. Here at Goodman Orthodontics, we provide personalized treatment plans that best suit your orthodontic needs. Below are the various types of braces or dental appliances to help correct your particular orthodontic problem.

Metal Braces

Metal braces are made of high-quality, durable stainless steel. They are the most common type of braces. 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. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces move teeth just as efficiently as metal braces, except the brackets are clear, so they are less noticeable. They are most popular with adult patients due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawbacks to ceramic brackets are that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are made of durable plastic or acrylic material. They effectively straighten teeth without brackets and wires. Clear aligners are customized, comfortable and removable. Ask us if clear aligners are the perfect treatment option for you.​
