In addition to offering a wide-variety of dental services, Centra Dental also provides braces. Moving and correcting the alignment of the teeth follows the same biological and physical process no matter what the age. These commonly-used orthodontic appliances can be made of metal, ceramic or plastic. They can also be made so that they are removable, or bonded to the teeth with brackets.

Braces For Adults
Adjusting and straightening teeth is best done early. If your child or teenager needs braces, our dentists are here to help you make the right choice by ensuring that you have all the information you need regarding this vital dental procedure. Make sure your child stands out for the right reasons by providing them with a perfect smile that can only be attained through braces.
Your child will receive the highest level of personal care from our dentists and will make sure they understand the procedure of braces and how long they can expect to have them on. The complete treatment usually lasts an average of two years. Despite the teeth becoming straight before the two years is complete, it is best to keep the braces on for the duration of the recommended time than to take them off too soon. If braces are removed too soon, it increases the risk that the teeth may become crooked again. As with any medical procedure, you only want to have to do it once.
Also, our 3M metal braces come with various color band options so that you can show some extra personality with your smile.
A subtle, yet effective treatment
Invisalign is very effective for those with less complicated malocclusions. When undergoing Invisalign treatment, you will wear you clear aligners for a few weeks at a time and then switch them as your teeth shift their position. Each set will gradually push the teeth toward the next phase of alignment, as determined by the treatment plan we customize for you at your initial consultation.
Clear aligners don’t use wires or brackets like traditional metal braces, and they should be removed at meal times, so they are much more subtle and flexible. However, this flexibility means you must be very disciplined to ensure you don’t accidentally misplace them or forget to wear them for at least 22 hours a day.
