Braces are small pieces that are attached to the surfaces of the teeth using a special adhesive. Wires are inserted into the braces and will slowly move and straighten the teeth. Braces can be either metal or ceramic.
One of the latest advancements in orthodontic technology is Invisalign aligners. These aligners are made of clear plastic to straighten the teeth in a more discreet manner. The aligners can easily be removed when eating or brushing your teeth
Maxillary (Upper Jaw) Expanders
Expanders are used to widen the upper jaw so the upper and lower teeth will fit together better. Used in conjunction with braces, the expanders will create more room for crowded teeth.
