No matter what your age is, you deserve to have straight teeth that work well! While many of those opting to get braces are teenagers, it is never too late to get the smile of your dreams. For those that are self-conscious, very inconspicuous options are available.

Orthodontics is the field of dentistry that is focused on lining the teeth up properly in relation to the size and shape of the jaw. There are several ways to straighten your teeth:

Traditional Metal Braces

These traditional style braces have been used for decades. They use brackets that are attached to the teeth and connected with a metal wire. It can be used to straighten teeth as well as correct underbites, overbites and other flaws.

Fast Braces

Using a unique triangular design, Fastbraces are able to move the teeth into position quicker by applying slightly more pressure on the teeth. It also moves the roots of the teeth in place earlier than traditional braces. This greatly cuts the treatment time down.


Invisalign uses the latest 3D technology to straighten your teeth by using nearly invisible plastic trays. Invisalign works by identifying how your teeth look now, what they should look like when straightened and creates many different clear trays that help move the teeth in position step by step. The clear tray is barely visible and since it is removable, tasks like eating and brushing your teeth are much easier.
