Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces have long set the standard for orthodontic treatment due to their proven effectiveness and durability. Made from high-grade stainless steel, today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable, and more efficient than ever before. They consist of metal brackets attached to each tooth, connected by a thin wire that is adjusted periodically to guide teeth into the desired position.

The benefits of metal braces include their robustness and ability to handle complex orthodontic cases. They are a reliable option for children, teens, and adults. Additionally, modern advancements have made them more comfortable, with less irritation to the gums and cheeks.

Clear Braces

Clear braces offer a more aesthetic alternative to traditional metal braces. Made from clear ceramic material, they blend in with your teeth, making them less noticeable. This makes them an excellent choice for teens and adults who want to straighten their smile without drawing attention to their orthodontic treatment. Clear braces work in the same way as metal braces, using brackets and wires to move teeth into alignment. However, the brackets are transparent, making them a more discreet option. They provide the same effectiveness as metal braces, ensuring you achieve a perfect smile with added confidence during the treatment process.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are an innovative orthodontic solution that offers the benefits of traditional braces with the added advantage of being hidden from view. These braces are attached to the back (lingual side) of your teeth, making them virtually invisible from the front. This makes lingual braces an excellent choice for individuals who want to maintain a natural appearance while undergoing orthodontic treatment. Lingual braces are custom-made to fit the contour of your teeth, providing effective and discreet treatment. They work similarly to traditional braces, applying gentle pressure to move teeth into their correct positions. Lingual braces are suitable for patients of all ages and can address a wide range of orthodontic issues, from simple to complex cases.

The Orthodontic Process

Embarking on your orthodontic journey at Emerick Orthodontics begins with a free consultation. During this initial visit, Dr. Emerick will discuss your orthodontic goals and evaluate your dental health.

The consultation includes taking x-rays and photographs to get a comprehensive understanding of your teeth and jaw structure. Based on this assessment, Dr. Emerick will recommend the best treatment options for you, whether it be metal or clear braces.

Once a treatment plan is agreed upon, the next step involves fitting your braces. Regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to adjust the braces and monitor progress.

Throughout your treatment, Dr. Emerick and our team will provide continuous support and care, ensuring your orthodontic experience is as comfortable and effective as possible.
