Traditional braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment. They are both reliable and affordable. Metal brackets and wires move the teeth to their ideal position over time. While metal braces are a great option for many patients, they do require some extra care regarding hygiene routines. At Grand Dental Orthodontics, we work with your hygienist and dentist to make sure your teeth are well cared for from start to finish.
These braces work like traditional metal braces, except that the brackets bonded to the teeth are made of ceramic or clear plastic. This provides the reliability of traditional metal braces while being less noticeable.
A palatal expander is a type of orthodontic appliance that aims to increase the size of the palate. In some children or adults, the upper palate is too narrow. This can cause problems concerning overcrowding as well as proper occlusion. A palatal expander is used to spread out the teeth, thus resulting in a wider palate and more even bite.
