Types of Braces
Dr. Michael Cox is proud to offer the most current orthodontic technology to better serve his patients.
Metal Braces are the most common type of braces. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and better looking than braces in the past. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and arch wires. We offer many different color options to add to your braces. Take a look at our Color Planner to choose which color braces you prefer!
Clarity Clear Braces
Clarity braces are clear braces that give a translucent appearance. Made from a hard ceramic material, unlike other clear braces, Clarity braces won’t stain or discolor. They are usually most popular with adult patients, for cosmetic reason, because of the way they look. Many patients are now choosing the clear option – Clarity!
The Invisalign system is a series of comfortable, clear overlay templates called aligners that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move your teeth. The Invisalign system is custom-made for you, and you alone, and is available to adult patients and some teenagers with certain orthodontic bite problems. If you’re ready to completely transform your smile, ask us to see if you’re a candidate for the Invisalign system.
