Of the many aspects of treatment that Orthodontics includes, probably the most familiar are Dental Braces. Braces are typically made from stainless steel or more aesthetically pleasing ceramic materials and Invisalign®. There are different stages of treatment. Typically, after an active corrective stage there will be what is called a retention stage. The familiar appliance associated with this stage is the retainer.


Invisalign® is a series of clear, removable teeth aligners that both orthodontists and dentists use as an alternative to traditional metal dental braces.
