Metal Braces & More
Most patients we treat at Travers 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, Dr. Travers will talk to you about which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.
Fixed Vs. Removable Appliances
At Travers Orthodontics, we believe patients should be well-informed when it comes to their 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. Travers uses Invisalign aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems.
At Travers Orthodontics, we generally use fixed appliances for comprehensive and serious and treatment.
