Types of Braces

Your Trusted Amherst Orthodontist Offers A Variety Of Braces

At Owl Orthodontics, the Doctors and staff are always striving to provide more value to our amazing patients. One way we provide value is through multiple convenient locations in Amherst, Clarence, Williamsville, Grand-Island, Buffalo and Lancaster-Depew. We also understand that each patient has different needs and desires when it comes to their smile. This is why we are happy to be able to offer different types of braces including Invisalign to our patients.

Metal Braces

The brackets, which are bonded to the front of each tooth, are connected by the archwire, which helps guide the teeth into the correct positions. Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.

Ceramic Braces

They are most popular with adult patients due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawbacks to ceramic brackets are that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.

Clear Aligners
