Types of Braces

Thanks to today’s advances in orthodontic technology, Miller Orthodontic Specialists can provide our patients with more options when it comes to wearing braces than ever before. While traditional metal braces are still widely used, clear braces are very popular with teens and adults who are self conscious about wearing braces, along with Invisalign removable aligners, the “braceless” alternative to straight teeth. Dr. Lance Miller will help you determine which treatment option is right for you.

Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces used today.  They are smaller and more comfortable than ever before and constructed of high-grade space age metal alloys. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on teenage and adult patients who have aesthetic concerns. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene since ceramic braces are larger. The only drawback to ceramic brackets is that they are more fragile and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits with certain foods and smoking.

Invisible Braces

Clear appliances, such as Invisalign, use a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth. No one can tell you are wearing those aligners because they are invisible! Invisalign aligners are removable so you are not limited in what you can eat and drink during treatment. Plus… brushing and flossing are less of a hassle. The aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. Invisalign

My experience with Miller Orthodontic Specialists was nothing short of amazing. The office is very... clean and welcoming.The staff are all extremely kind and knowledgeable about what they are doing. They always asked me how I was doing, made me smile and laugh when I was there. They let me know what they were going to do before they did it which was comforting to know.I came to them with my concerns about my teeth and what I wanted. The treatment plan I had was to have braces for 24 months and they explained it all thoroughly to me every step of the way. Any questions I had were answered and my concerns were addressed in a professional manner.The payment plan worked perfectly for me. I am very satisfied with the outcome of my treatment and highly recommend going to see them for a consult if you want a beautiful smile! 😁 Thank you to everyone at Miller Orthodontic Specialists for being so kind to me and helping me get the smile I've always wanted!! 💙 Especially Ashley for being super kind to me and going out of your way to connect and converse with me, making me feel welcomed and comfortable.read more

I had multiple orthodontic problems for years; cross bite, over bite, crowding, overlapping, you... name it. Over the course of two years, four months and three days, Dr. Miller and his team took outstanding care of me, explaining every step of the process, accommodating my busy schedule, and providing flexible financing. Now my teeth look and feel better than ever! At 33 years old, I'm one of the many examples of proof that it's never too late to have the smile you deserve.read more
