Orthodontics – Clear & Traditional Braces in Oak Forest

Near Tinley Park, Midlothian, Frankfort, IL

Traditional and Invisible Braces for Children and Adults

Traditional Metal Braces are made of high-quality, durable stainless steel. They are the most common type of braces. The brackets, which are bonded to the front of each tooth, are connected by the arch wire, which helps guide the teeth into the correct positions. Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.

Ceramic Braces move teeth just as efficiently as metal braces, except the brackets, are clear, so they are less noticeable. They are most popular with adult patients due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawbacks to ceramic brackets are that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.

Invisible Braces are for minor adjustments of the teeth and are commonly used for adult and teenagers due to cosmetic appeal and in some cases allow for a quicker adjustment of the teeth being corrected.
