Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces used today. They are smaller and more comfortable than ever before. The metal braces used at Sterling Heights Orthodontics are constructed of high-grade metal alloys that allow a significant improvement in both comfort and efficiency when compared to older generation braces.
With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile. You can pick and choose both your color and pattern at each visit.
Why settle for the limitations of traditional braces or invisible aligners like Invisalign when there are Clear Braces?
Virtually invisible, Clear Braces have “clear” advantages over traditional braces and aligners. In some ways, you get the best of the other treatment options. You get the results and speed of using braces, but are closer to the aesthetics of aligners than that of braces. In most cases, it is very difficult to even see that someone is wearing clear braces. Clear braces deliver a discreet treatment experience with results that will continue a lifetime.
Sterling Heights Orthodontics specializes in using Invisalign to create stunning smiles and has been recognized as a preferred Invisalign provider. Invisalign is a revolutionary new way of treating orthodontic problems without the use of traditional metal braces. Invisalign treatment consists of a series of precision-crafted, clear, plastic aligners that gently and gradually move your teeth into proper placement. Never before has orthodontic treatment been so aesthetic, comfortable, and convenient. Sterling Heights Orthodontics achieves amazing results by creating your very own, customized Invisalign treatment plan. With Invisalign, you can get the smile you’ve always wanted discreetly and with minimum disruption of your everyday life. Some of the benefits of Invisalign are that it is more aesthetic, more hygienic, and more comfortable when compared to traditional braces.
No more goop, gagging, or discomfort. Using an iTero scanner, our Sterling Heights Orthodontist can take a highly accurate digital impression of your teeth and jaw. This new technology completely eliminates the tray and putty impressions, which most patients compare to stuffing a big wad of gum in their mouths. The old technique is incredibly unpleasant and frequently results in taking multiple rounds of impressions that are often rejected, broken, or misplaced. The iTero scanner ensures a more accurate impression from the start, resulting in improved treatment and a more comfortable patient experience. Digital impressions also give you the ability to see your teeth instantly in 3D, improving communication during the consultation and treatment process.
We utilize the latest technology in our practice to make treatment more comfortable and efficient. Our goal is to deliver the best quality of care in the shortest amount of time. We also utilize a revolutionary digital scanner to eliminate the unpleasant goopy impressions for braces and Invisalign. We use the latest in digital charting and record keeping, which allows us to analyze your treatment in every detail. Along with this, our 3D models offer state-of-the-art imagery to both analyze and monitor your treatment from start to finish.
