Types of Braces

Thanks to advances in orthodontic technology, Corbridge Orthodontics can provide our patients with more options when it comes to correcting their smile. While traditional metal braces are still widely used, clear aligners are very popular with teens and adults who are self-conscious about wearing braces. Invisalign removable aligners are an  alternative to straighten teeth. Dr. Jared Corbridge will help you determine which treatment option is right for you.

Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are still the most common type of braces used today.  They are smaller and more comfortable than ever before and constructed of high-grade metal alloys. With metal braces, you also have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.


Clear Aligners 

Clear appliances, such as Invisalign, use a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth. Invisalign aligners are removable so you are not limited in what you can eat and drink during treatment. Plus… brushing and flossing are less of a hassle. The aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. Invisalign
