Choose Experience, Get Results
Smiles are a reflection of who we are. We believe our patients deserve every advantage possible, and we do our utmost to provide it. We will prove this with our performance. Orthodontic treatment offers many oral health advantages aside from improving your smile. Today more than ever, no one should be denied a healthy smile! In fact, About 25% of our orthodontic patients are adults, which proves you are never too old for straight teeth and an awesome Grummons Orthodontics smile!
Thanks to today's advances in orthodontic technology, Grummons Orthodontics can provide our patients with more options when it comes to wearing braces than ever before. While regular metal braces are still widely used, clear braces are becoming increasingly popular along with removable appliances that can be used for mild cases of misaligned teeth.
Please ask Dr. Grummons about the types of braces we offer at our office. He can help you determine which appliance is right for you.
Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are smaller and more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.
Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have aesthetic concerns. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger than metal braces. The only drawback to ceramic brackets is that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits with certain foods and smoking.
At Grummons Orthodontics we us clear appliances, such as Invisalign use a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth. And, no one can tell you are wearing those aligners because they are invisible! Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are less of a hassle. The aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.
