Metal Braces and More
Most patients we treat at Timock Family Orthodontics choose to straighten their teeth using traditional metal braces.
Even though metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment for patients in Fort Collins and Windsor, you have several other choices.
After your first free exam appointment, Dr. Timock will talk to you about which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.
Fixed Vs. Removable Appliances
It’s very important for people around Fort Collins and Windsor to understand the difference between fixed and removable braces appliances.
Fixed appliances, like metal and ceramic braces, are attached to your teeth and aren’t taken off until you complete your treatment at Timock Family Orthodontics.
Removable appliances, like Invisalign’s aligner system, are worn about 20-22 hours a day but can be taken off easily.
Aside from the obvious differences, Invisalign aligners are best at treating mild to moderate orthodontic problems.
Fixed appliances are generally needed for more serious and comprehensive treatment.
