Types of Braces
Single Wing Brackets
Smaller, single wing brackets allow us to align your treatment with the Alexander Discipline, providing improved rotational control on teeth with more labial curvature than twin brackets.
These braces are stainless steel. They are the most popular braces for children and teenagers. Different colored ligature ties give each patient a custom look. We can change the colors at each appointment. One reason these braces are so popular is that they are smaller and more comfortable than ever before.
Invisalign treatment consists of a series of aligners that you switch out every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured to gradually shift your teeth into place. Our Doctors are Invisalign Certified and have years of experience creating beautiful smiles with these aligners. And since your Invisalign system is custom-made for your teeth and your teeth only, you know you’ll end up with a smile that truly fits.
Translucent, Clear Braces
These are the “prettiest” braces. Their big advantage is that they are barely noticeable.They are made out of monocrystalline, clear ceramic. Because they are ceramic, though, they may break more easily than steel braces. Translucent braces are used only on the front teeth. They accompany steel braces on back teeth and most lower teeth for added strength.
What We Do
Orthodontics isn’t just about pretty teeth, it’s all about a healthy bite and smile. When you or your child become a patient at Sutter Orthodontics, we focus on giving you a smile that will last for a lifetime, one that functions well and looks beautiful.
If you’re looking to straighten your smile without braces, Invisalign® clear aligners are a perfect choice for many people. Invisalign straightens teeth utilizing a clear plastic aligner that is virtually invisible. Invisalign is the ideal choice for adults who want a healthy, beautiful smile without metal braces.
Can you imagine middle school or highschool without metal braces? Thanks to Invisalign Teen, metal brackets and wires are no longer a rite of passage for teenagers. Now teens can straighten their teeth and smile while doing it with the convenient, comfortable and virtually invisible treatment.
Metal and Clear Braces
Braces are a popular option for kids and adults who want to have a beautiful smile. Now, thanks to advances in technology, braces have dramatically improved. This means that the discomfort from years past has been significantly decreased. Whether you opt for traditional metal braces or an esthetic choice like clear braces, you’ll love the straight teeth and a healthy bite that braces can achieve.
