Types of Braces

Types of Braces in Charlotte, NC

Here at Catawba Valley Dental Care, we understand your desire to have a smile that is as beautiful as it is healthy.

Traditional Braces

Traditional braces use metal brackets and wires used to straighten and align teeth. Traditional braces offer more control and fine tuning especially in very difficult cases. Patients with jaw discrepancies, cross bites, and poor occlusion often are better candidates for traditional brackets and wires. If compliance may be an issue, traditional braces should be selected over removable appliances, as they require a specific amount of patient commitment.

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners, like Invisalign®, work but fitting securely to your teeth and progressively moving the teeth through a series of aligners. Clear aligners provide superior esthetics during treatment and also enable the patient to complete hygiene easier. Aligners can be removed by the patient to eat, drink, and clean their teeth, keeping them clean and healthy without all the debris caught and retained by traditional braces.
