This article provides plenty of helpful information for you and your family, including the topics of traditional metal braces, clear aligners vs braces and all the different types of braces we offer.
Ortho Plus - Say hello to the Present
Some of today’s most popular teeth straightening methods include clear aligners. Clear Aligners are barely visible trays and the treatment time to straight teeth is less than traditional braces. Clear Aligners easily slip onto the teeth and are easy to wear. Ortho Plus clear aligner braces 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 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 advantages of lingual braces are easy to NOT see...which is a good thing!

- Can be more expensive

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.

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. The Super Dentists provides all types of braces for you and your family, including trusted, tried-and-true traditional braces!
- Effective method
- Customization options
- Affordable and covered by most dental insurance plans

- Low profile stainless steel braces
- Fun shaped brackets and colorful rubber bands
