Metal Braces and More

Most patients we treat choose traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth.

While metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment, you have several other options.

After your first free initial exam appointment, Dr. Timock or Dr. Wire 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 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.

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.

TMJ Therapy

You probably think of an orthodontist as someone who fixes crooked teeth with braces. We can also treat a common dental issue: temporal mandibular joint disorder, or TMJ. If you’re suffering from the pain and discomfort of TMJ, come see Dr. Timock or Dr. Wire for a consultation.
