Different Options in Braces

Whether your teeth are crooked, crowded, gapped or misaligned, you may benefit from orthodontic treatment. Our expert in braces in Cupertino can help you decide on the best type of braces for your needs.

Several options are available, including:

• Conventional braces
These are the traditional braces that use brackets, wires, bands and elastics to adjust the position of the teeth. They are versatile enough to be used for just about any orthodontic problem.

• Clear braces
Clear brackets are made of ceramic or another clear material and work much like conventional braces but without the visible metal brackets.

• Clear aligners
Clear aligners use clear plastic trays that slip over the teeth and apply pressure to slide teeth into position.

• Self-ligating braces
Self-ligating brackets eliminate the elastics and allow braces to be adjusted quickly and easily for fewer appointments and less discomfort.

Regardless of the type of treatment you use, we will work with you to ensure the best results. Good dental hygiene, healthy dental habits and periodic adjustments or checkups with us will all be important during your treatment.
