Metal Braces & Other Options
Most patients we treat at Humphrey Orthodontics choose traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth.
Metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment, but you have other options, too.
After your first free consultation exam, Dr. Humphrey will talk to you about which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.
Fixed Appliances Vs. Removable Appliances
You should be fully educated when it comes to your treatment. 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.
Besides the obvious differences, Dr. Humphrey uses Invisalign aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems. We generally use fixed appliances for comprehensive and serious and treatment.
