Clear braces are designed to create more aesthetic appeal and are both stain-free and durable. They offer a clear alternative to traditional metal braces. Teenagers and adults may choose ceramic braces because they “blend in” with your natural teeth and are far less noticeable than metal braces. Karl Orthodontics believes that every individual has the right to live their life with a smile they truly love—without being forced to use a treatment that obstructs the smile they currently have. Clear braces help you achieve the smile of your dreams more discreetly than you ever imagined. The best part is, Dr. Karl offers clear braces at no extra charge!
Self-Ligating Braces (In-Ovation)
Self-ligating braces (In-Ovation) are similar to traditional metal braces. However, self-ligating braces eliminate the need for elastic bands, which in turn leads to less friction on the teeth. Self-ligating braces offer a variety of bracket options, such as metal, porcelain, and clear brackets to fit all lifestyle choices. Self-ligating braces utilize a clip instead of elastics to connect the wire to the braces. This ultimately leads to a reduction in the pressure placed on your teeth and fewer appointments. Dr. Karl uses In-Ovation braces for all full treatment cases. He has seen that it usually takes less time than traditional braces. He offers these at no extra charge!

Traditional metal braces are the most familiar type of braces used in orthodontics. Metal braces are made of high-grade stainless steel, and they utilize brackets, small rubber bands, and archwires to straighten your teeth during the course of your treatment. This is the tried-and-true, proven straightening method regardless of the severity of the case. Metal braces have progressed a long way over the past decade to ensure better comfort, and they’re a great way to customize your smile and share your unique personality.
When you are looking for a type of orthodontics that is virtually invisible, then Invisalign might be the perfect choice for you. You can now achieve your greatest smile quickly and easily with no metal, wires, or elastics. The clear aligners that fit over your teeth make life easier during the teeth-straightening process, because the trays are removable. This makes routine tasks that would be difficult during orthodontic treatment (such as brushing and flossing) simple, easy and more effective.
