Teeth Straightening Options for the Entire Family!
Do you know what a “braces dentist” is called? An orthodontist! While not all dentists are orthodontists, all orthodontists are dentists. And here at The Super Dentists, San Diego’s #1 family dentist and orthodontist team, we recognize the importance of a winning smile.
It’s not all about keeping up appearances, though – straighter teeth help in everything from chewing, talking and even sleeping, as teeth grinding can be an issue with misaligned teeth.
We’ve taken our family-first approach to dental and orthodontic services to provide multiple teeth straightening options for the whole family. At The Super Dentists, it’s all about getting you or your child’s smile back on track by choosing the perfect set of braces.

Ortho Plus - Say hello to the Present
Some of today’s most popular teeth straightening methods include clear aligners — often referred to by the common branded term “Invisalign”.
Comparing Invisalign vs. braces’ pros and cons, you’ll find that the former are designed to easily slip onto the teeth, making them comfortable to wear. Ortho Plus clear aligner braces (the type of clear aligners we offer here at The Super Dentists) gently and gradually move teeth into place, all without the metal wires and tight rubber bands associated with traditional braces.
In-Ovation is a current type of self-ligating braces (no tightening required) that doesn’t use traditional wires or elastic ties. This makes In-Ovation braces more comfortable, less visible and easier to keep clean than traditional braces. Available in clear or metal.
- Less visible
- More comfortable
- Straighten faster
- Easy to keep clean
- Case selection is critical
Lingual Orthodontics - Let's go Invisible
What are lingual braces? Lingual braces go behind your teeth on the tongue side so they are completely out of sight. Incognito braces are custom made, one tooth at a time, to effectively straighten any smile. While traditional metal braces are attached to the outside of the teeth and are easily visible, the advantage of lingual braces is that they’re made to be effective without being seen...which is a good thing!
- Completely hidden - invisible
- 100% customized for each tooth
- Fixes any smile
- Can be more expensive
- Can be difficult to clean
This type of lingual braces is completely undetectable and easy to wear. Think of Incognito Braces as the ultimate combination of clear aligners and lingual orthodontics. They’re clear, easy to wear, and customized to fit for supreme comfort and wearability.
- Discreet - almost impossible to notice
- No wire adjustments required
- Gradually move teeth into place
- Minimal speech disruption
- No wires, bands, uncomfortable application, or removal
- Added importance on case selection
- Usually more expensive than traditional braces care
Of all the different types of braces , traditional braces are the most common. This type of teeth straightening method involves small metal mounts on each tooth, each with tiny holes for wires to pass through. The wires are latched with small rubber bands to encourage gradual movement to the correct position.
At The Super Dentists, we provide all types of braces for you and your family, including trusted, tried-and-true traditional braces, where you get to change your rubber band color routinely to change with the season! Here are some of the main pros and cons of braces:
- Effective method
- Customization options
- Affordable and covered by most dental insurance plans
- Slight discomfort during installation and a few days afterward
- Regular, frequent appointments

After all, the most exciting part of getting children’s dental braces for many kids is choosing different colors!
- Low profile stainless steel braces
