Stainless steel braces are durable and commonly used. Different color ties can be added for a personalized touch.
Made of clear/tooth-colored materials, these braces are less noticeable. They are popular among older teens and adults concerned about appearance.
Clear, removable aligners (e.g., Invisalign) gradually straighten teeth. They are virtually invisible, comfortable, and allow for easy oral hygiene.
LINGUAL/”BEHIND THE TEETH” BRACES
Placed on the back of teeth, these braces are hidden from view. They provide effective treatment but may initially affect speech.
MINI, “SLIM-LINE” EXPANDERS
Compact and comfortable expanders widen upper and/or lower jaws. They require adjustments and promote proper tooth alignment.
The MARA appliance corrects excessive horizontal overlap of front teeth. It improves jaw balance and facial appearance without the need for visible headgear.
Used early (around age 6), the Facemask helps move the underdeveloped upper jaw forward, correcting underbite and promoting proper bite development.
Turbos are bite-opening appliances placed behind the upper front teeth. They correct deep bites, allowing other teeth to align properly.
INTERPROXIMAL REDUCTION (IPR)
IPR is a conservative procedure that involves removing a small amount of enamel between teeth to create space and improve alignment. It is painless and safe.
These appliances and procedures offer effective solutions for various orthodontic needs. Dr. Tsibel can guide you in selecting the most suitable option based on your specific case.
