Types of Braces Offered

Perhaps the most recognizable type of braces are the traditional metal braces. They have metal brackets bonded to the front of the teeth and connected by a thin metal wire (called an archwire). This archwire is secured in the brackets using elastic bands or metal ties. These braces are highly effective in correcting dental issues, including misalignment, overcrowding, and bite problems.

At Mastaj Orthodontics, we offer a variety of braces from which you can choose.

1. Self-Ligating Braces

Say goodbye to constant adjustments with the innovative self-ligating braces. Self-ligating braces eliminate the need for elastic or metal ties by using specialized clips to secure the archwire to the brackets. This leads to a more comfortable orthodontic experience. With self-ligating braces, you’ll enjoy fewer office visits and faster treatment times, allowing you to achieve your dream smile easily. They are also available in both metal and ceramic options.

2. Aesthetic Braces

Our aesthetic braces are the perfect choice for those seeking a discreet orthodontic solution. These braces are designed to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, making them almost invisible to the naked eye. Aesthetic braces can straighten your smile without drawing attention to your orthodontic treatment, giving you the confidence to smile throughout your journey.

3. Clear Aligners (Invisalign)

Clear aligners like the popular Invisalign system are custom-made, removable trays that gradually move teeth into the desired position. These aligners are virtually invisible, allowing patients to undergo orthodontic treatment discreetly.

Our clear aligners are custom-made to fit your unique smile, gently shifting your teeth into alignment without the need for brackets or wires. Clear aligners offer added convenience as they can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. This promotes better oral hygiene throughout treatment and allows you to enjoy all your favorite foods and activities without restrictions.
