Different Types of Braces
At Clover Park Dental, we provide two different types of braces. The first is the traditional wire and bracket brace, which use bonding material, wire, and elastic. Over time the orthodontist tightens these braces, bringing the teeth to a straight position.
The second type are Clearline braces. These do not use wire or brackets, but rather use a series of clear plastic aligners, much like retainers, that are aligned at different increments to slowly straighten your teeth. At Clover Park Dental, we aim to plan out the exact movements of each of your teeth, so that your Clearline aligners provide you with the results you want. Invisalign® is one of the world’s most advanced clear aligner systems. It can provide results up to 50% faster than wire and bracket braces. Many patients often choose Invisalign® clear braces for comfort.
