There are many types of braces in Lowell, Massachusetts, and we are proud to offer three kinds at Orthodontic Associates of New England, which include:
• Metal Braces: Metal brackets are glued to the surfaces of your teeth and those brackets are connected by metal wires. These wires apply pressure onto the brackets to gradually move the teeth into the desired positions.
• Clear Braces: Clear braces are made of composite materials, which are tooth-colored. Lighter bands, wires, and brackets are used to blend closely with your teeth to refrain from causing a distraction. These clear braces also apply pressure to the teeth to gradually shift them throughout time.
• Invisalign®: Invisalign® is a plastic, clear retainer that covers the entire visible portions of your teeth and gradually moves your teeth throughout time. You will go through a series of aligning trays that are molded in the shape of your teeth. This is a virtually invisible product that is removable.
Our orthodontists, Dr. Lala and Dr. Bednarz, care about you so they make sure to use the most comfortable, efficient, and technologically-advanced products to give you the best results possible. If you wish to know more about your orthodontic options, please feel free to give us a call. We look forward to giving you a straight and beautiful smile!
