Braces


Braces, also called fixed appliances, are a major component of many people's orthodontic journey. For most of our patients, of many different ages, wearing one of the braces options we offer for some length of time is a part of their treatment. At Heller Orthodontics we offer a range of state-of-the-art braces solutions to accommodate the specific needs of our patients, and we work with you to decide, from traditional metal braces to removable Invisalign aligners, which of many options is best for you.

Traditional Metal Braces.

Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces have always been a popular choice because they are affordable, reliable, and durable. They are a great option for kids and young adults who will have fun styling them with the multicolored elastics that hold the wires in place. They are a straightforward braces option that does the work while you simply keep them clean, and let them do their thing. Made of stainless steel, modern metal braces are lightweight, streamlined and comfortable. The small metal brackets are "bonded" to the front of the teeth and have a flexible archwire running along them to shift your teeth gently into place.

 
Ceramic Braces.

Ceramic Braces

These braces work just like metal braces, but the brackets are made of a ceramic or composite material that blends in with the color of the teeth, making them more discrete. Like metal braces, they are highly effective and reliable, but they are slightly more fragile, more expensive, and require more delicate care. These braces are ideal for adults or teens who don't want to worry about the aesthetics of metal braces.

 
Invisalign and Suresmile

Invisalign and Suresmile

Clear aligners are a braces alternative that can be used to correct most orthodontic problems. They are not used for severe orthodontic corrections, but they are a very popular option for smaller fixes. They fit over the teeth like plastic retainers, and are removed when eating or drinking.
