Types of Braces

Metal Braces
Metal braces (stainless steel) are the most popular type of braces. Goldman Orthodontics utilizes the most comfortable, efficient, and technologically advanced metal braces available. Many patients have fun selecting different colors of bands to be placed on their braces as a means of personal expression. It's simple to change the colors every time you have an appointment.

Clear Ceramic Braces
Clear ceramic braces are an aesthetic alternative for those who don't want their braces to show as much. Clear braces move your teeth in exactly the same way as metal braces do. Like metal braces, they are extremely comfortable to wear and very efficient at moving teeth.

Lingual Braces
Many adults today choose to undergo treatment via lingual braces, which are attached to the backs of the teeth and, therefore, are less visible than traditional braces.

Lingual braces are not for everybody and they don't solve all orthodontic problems. They also can prolong treatment time somewhat. They represent one of the treatment options now available to adults considering braces.

Invisalign
Invisalign treatment consists of a series of aligners that you switch out about every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. The Invisalign treatment program consists of a full set of aligners, made for you, and only you.

Invisalign is versatile and helps to correct a broad range of dental and orthodontic issues. Click here to read more about Invisalign.
