At Maple Orthodontics, we offer a variety of orthodontic appliances to help our patients achieve a straighter, healthier smile. Here are some of the types of appliances we offer:
Traditional braces are made of metal brackets and wires that are bonded to the teeth. Braces are activated regularly to gradually move teeth into their correct positions over time.
Clear braces are made of ceramic or tooth-coloredmaterials that blend in with the teeth and are less noticeable than traditional metal braces.
Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gently shift teeth into their desired positions. This option is popular among adults and teens who prefer a more discreet treatment option.
Retainers are used after braces or Invisalign treatment to keep teeth in their new positions. They can be either removable or fixed. The pros and cons of each style will be discussed with you by the doctors and staff.
Expanders are used to widen the upper jaw in patients who have narrow arches. This treatment can help alleviate issues like overcrowding, dental and skeletal crossbite, and to correct airway constriction and breathing difficulties.
Space maintainers are used to hold space in the mouth for permanent teeth that have yet to erupt. This appliance can help prevent overcrowding and minimize other developing orthodontic issues. Their goal is to make future orthodontic care more routine.
At Maple Orthodontics, our experienced team of orthodontists can help you determine which type of appliance is best for your orthodontic needs. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a consultation, please don't hesitate to contact us. We're dedicated to helping you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile.
