Types of Braces
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.
The Damon Clear bracket is the most aesthetically clear brace in the market. It blends beautifully your teeth and features a clear slide mechanism that conceals the wire. Because the slide is used in place of elastic ties, the braces stay clean and clear throughout treatment and reduce the overall appointments needed to complete our Fair Oaks braces treatment.
Incognito is another custom option that use braces that are placed on the inside of the teeth. Advanced computer software produces custom brackets and a series of wires to correct your bite more efficiently than traditional lingual (braces that are put on the inside of the teeth) options.
Invisalign is the ultimate in terms of aesthetic treatment options. We use custom molded clear trays to move your teeth to the ideal position. Because they are removable, patient compliance is extremely important with aligners. Our Citrus Heights Invisalign treatment is a terrific option for working professionals or patients seeking a discrete solution to improve their smile, however it is not ideal for every case.
