Braces come in various types to cater to the diverse needs of individuals seeking orthodontic treatment. Traditional metal braces are the most common option, known for their durability and effectiveness in straightening teeth. Lingual braces are hidden behind the teeth, making them virtually invisible from the front. For those seeking a more high-tech option, clear aligners like Invisalign provide a removable and nearly invisible solution for straightening teeth. Each type of brace has its unique advantages, allowing patients to choose the one that best suits their preferences and orthodontic requirements.

Metal Braces:

Dr. Israel offers traditional metal braces that are smaller and more comfortable than ever. Adults have the option to choose esthetic alternatives (see below), while children can enjoy a wide selection of colors to personalize their braces.

Clear Braces:

Using the highest grade clear brackets, Dr. Israel provides clear braces that are stain-resistant, comfortable, and require minimal treatment time. These braces are less noticeable compared to metal braces.

Lingual Braces:

As one of the developers of lingual braces, Dr. Israel offers this discreet option where brackets are placed behind the teeth. Lingual braces provide maximum discretion and are suitable for most individuals who can benefit from conventional braces.

Invisalign: Removable Appliances for Adults and Teens

Using advanced computer technology (CAD/CAM), Dr. Israel utilizes Invisalign, a clear aligner system that is nearly invisible and removable. Instead of brackets and wires, the aligners offer maximum comfort, convenience, and esthetics. Dr. Israel is highly skilled in this aspect of orthodontics.
