Learn more about braces or how braces work to align your teeth.

Traditional Braces


Traditional stainless steel braces generally consist of three major components: brackets, a wire, and elastic bands. Each bracket is bonded to the front surface of a tooth. These brackets are then connected with a thin metal wire that is held in place by the elastic bands. Throughout your treatment, the wire is progressively changed to move your teeth to a more proper position.

Ceramic Braces


Ceramic braces are less noticeable than traditional braces, and are the same size and shape. They have the same functionality as traditional braces, but are tooth-colored or even clear. In some cases, we also use a tooth-colored wire to improve aesthetics.

Braces for Adults


Adult treatment is the fastest growing area of orthodontics. The AAO has stated that one in five orthodontic patients are over the age of 18. If you are an adult and considering orthodontic treatment, there are a few things to keep in mind:
•  The process may take a bit longer for you than an adolescent or child. The average treatment time is about two years.
•  Your facial bones and jawbones have stopped growing, and some structural changes may not be possible without surgical intervention.
•  We may recommend a periodontal evaluation before you move forward with orthodontics. Gum disease can complicate your treatment and results. This is typically a problem that only affects adults.

If you are concerned with aesthetics, we offer some discreet treatment options, from clear aligners to ceramic braces. Talk with Dr. James or Dr. Nanda during your initial consultation to learn more about your options. Regardless of which option you choose, we are confident you will be happy with the results!

Braces for Kids and Teens


Adolescents and teens are seen wearing braces most often because they're at the ideal age for orthodontic treatment to begin. Most children lose all their baby teeth and have all their permanent teeth by the time they are 13. It's also easy for us to diagnose issues with space, alignment, and crowding during this phase, as they're unlikely to improve on their own without treatment. Teens often feel comfortable getting braces, as many of their friends are also doing the same at this age.
