Types of Braces

At All Smiles, we offer choices in either traditional silver braces, as well as our esthetic ceramic braces. Both options will provide beautiful results. The only difference is the way they look when you smile. Either way, you’ll be excited to watch your smile develop as it transforms, and you’ll be proud to show it off!

Let’s Be Different!

We offer a variety of colors to add to your braces at each visit. Whether it’s your favorite team, school colors, or your favorite outfit- you’ll enjoy getting to mix things up, and then try something new at the next appointment!

Same Day Braces

We love how excited our patients are when they make the journey into orthodontics, for this reason we offer same day braces! There is no need to wait for a later appointment when you can leave the office one step closer to your dream smile after your initial consultation.

Elastics

Elastics improve the bite of your upper and lower teeth. Always ensure to wear the elastics as prescribed to ensure effective and timely treatment.

Spacers

Spacers are little rubber bands that are placed between your teeth to make room for orthodontic bands. These are only worn for a short period of time, and will be removed before the orthodontic bands are placed.

Herbst

Herbst appliances are used to correct overbites. This appliance encourages the lower jaw to move forward, while the upper molars move backward. This fixed appliance is used mostly for younger, growing children and is worn for about 12-15 months.

Palate Expander

The palatal expander works to widen your upper jaw by putting gentle pressure on your upper molars each time an adjustment is made. Your orthodontist will instruct you about when and how to adjust your expander to achieve the desired result.

Retainers may be removable or fixed. Wearing your retainer is vital to ensuring your teeth hold their new, correct position. Your orthodontist will instruct you on how to care for your retainer and about the duration of the wear.
