Silver and Gold Braces
Most patients we treat at Smile Ranch Orthodontics choose traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth. Patients can choose between silver or gold brackets to fit their style.
Metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment, but you have other options, too.
After your first free consultation, Dr. Katie will talk to you about which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.
Braces Vs. Invisalign
At Smile Ranch Orthodontics, we believe you should be properly educated when it comes to your treatment.
It’s important to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances. Fixed appliances, like braces, are attached to your teeth and aren’t taken off until you complete your treatment.
Removable appliances, like Invisalign’s aligner system, are worn about 20-22 hours a day but can be taken off easily.
Besides the obvious differences, Dr. Katie uses Invisalign aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems.
At Smile Ranch Orthodontics, we generally use fixed appliances for comprehensive and serious treatment.
