Metal Braces & More
Most patients we treat choose traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth.
While metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment, you have several other options.
After your free initial consultation, Dr. Hemphill will talk to you about which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.
Fixed Vs. Removable Appliances
It’s essential to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances. Fixed appliances, like braces, are attached to your teeth and aren’t taken off until you complete your treatment.
Removable appliances, like Invisalign’s aligner system, are worn about 20-22 hours a day but can be taken off easily.
Aside from the obvious differences, Invisalign aligners are best at treating mild to moderate orthodontic problems.
Fixed appliances are generally needed for more serious and comprehensive treatment.

Traditional metal braces are the most widely used type of fixed orthodontic appliance.
Traditional metal braces are a reliable, effective, and economical option that has stood the test of time for over a century.
While traditional metal braces remain the most popular option for orthodontic treatment, ceramic braces can be a great choice for some patients.
Sometimes known as clear braces, ceramic braces provide a much less noticeable method of treatment.
Invisalign & Invisalign for Teens
Unlike traditional braces, this kind of orthodontic treatment doesn’t rely on a system of metal or ceramic brackets and wires.
The Invisalign system is made up of a series of custom clear trays called aligners that are removable and nearly invisible.
