Types of Braces

Metal Braces

 

Metal braces are the most common type of braces used. Metal Brackets are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.  At Petrey & Newcomb Orthodontics we feature the Dentaurum Equilibrium Mini bracket, the smallest orthodontic bracket in the world.    

Clear Braces

The clear brace we use at P & N Ortho are made of cultured saphire, and are crystal clear.  They are most esthetic option for braces on the front side of teeth for both adults and children.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are the most esthetic option for Orthodontic therapy.  Lingual braces are placed on the back of the teeth and are not visible in most situations.  Unfortunately not all patients' bites can be corrected with Lingual braces.  Please feel free to discuss options of Lingual braces with Dr. Petrey or newcomb at your consultation appointment.

                                                                                 

Clear Aligners

The Invisalign® System and Clear Aligners are a series of retainer aligners that gradually move the teeth. This system is available to patients with limited orthodontic bite problems or for minor orthodonitc relapse. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign® system or Clear Aligners.
