Traditional metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment. Old Metairie Orthodontics uses metal "twin" brackets that are smaller and more comfortable. Metal braces are an excellent option for children, teens, and even adults. Plus, you get to pick out colors to go with them at each appointment!
Clear or "ceramic" braces are another option for those who want their braces to be less noticeable. They are similar to metal braces in size and comfort. These are great for teens or adults!
This route of treatment involves using a series of clear aligners to move your teeth into a better position. They are used to address specific needs and can be removed for some special occasions. Clear aligners are best in teens and adults. For those of you who want to improve your smile without metal or clear braces, these aligners may be the best option for you!
Some children need some guidance while they are waiting for all their permanent teeth to come in. Early/Interceptive treatment can prevent future problems when they are ready for full orthodontic treatment. To see if your child would need early treatment, schedule a free consultation once he/she turns 7 years old.
No more messy impressions to make molds of your teeth! Old Metairie Orthodontics offers an easy and more comfortable option that takes pictures of your teeth with a tiny camera! This is used for all patients and to plan your clear aligner treatment!
