Treatment Options for Orthodontics

There are several types of braces available. Speak with Drs. Rollins and Petersen to discover which type best meets your needs and goals.

Traditional Braces
Traditional braces are constructed from high-quality stainless steel. They use brackets that are attached to each tooth to hold archwires in place. The archwires put pressure on the teeth to cause them to slowly move into their ideal positions.

Tooth-Colored Braces
Tooth-colored braces, which are also called ceramic braces, function in the same way as traditional braces. However, the brackets are made of a ceramic material that is matched to the shade of the teeth. These braces are less visible to others, so they are a great aesthetic choice for the adult who wishes to get braces.

If you choose to straighten your smile with aligners, clear aligners will be made to assist your teeth during every step of your orthodontic treatment. Your custom-made aligners are worn over the teeth and are easy to remove. Because of this, you can eat, brush, and floss as normal.

We invite you to contact Rollins and Petersen today for more information about braces. Our orthodontists will happily discuss your goals and the way to achieve them with you.
