Braces are a tried and true method for correcting your oral misalignment issues and crooked teeth. Currently, approximately four million people in the U.S. wear braces, with one million of those being adults. Not only do braces correct appearance problems, they can correct and prevent physical problems caused by misaligned teeth and jaws. Braces are an important tool for achieving dental health.

Dr. Monacell  prepares an individual treatment plan for each patient and offers you the best options for your particular orthodontic issues.

Monacell Orthodontics metal braces


Metal, or traditional, braces are the most common type of dental braces used in orthodontic treatment. Metal brackets, which are durable and more comfortable than ever before, are bonded to the front of each tooth and act as anchors holding the archwire in place.

Monacell Orthodontics clear braces


Suitable for some patients, clear ceramic braces offer a cosmetic alternative to the metal. The clear brackets are bonded to the front teeth and act as anchors holding the archwire in place. Ceramic braces are slightly less durable than the traditional metal brackets due to the material composition.

Monacell Orthodontics clear aligner systems


Some patients can be treated with clear plastic aligners that are nearly invisible and can be removed for dental care, eating, and drinking. The patient wears a series of slightly different shaped appliances over a matter of months or years to correct tooth alignment.

 Lingual braces are an invisible version of metal braces. They are applied to the back, or lingual, side of your teeth so they do not affect your appearance.

Orthodontic Problems Treated by Braces

Many orthodontic problems can be treated with braces, including:
  • An overbite is when the upper front teeth excessively overlap the lower ones, causing wear on the teeth, possible jaw pain and aesthetic concerns.
  • crossbite is when some of your top teeth fall inside of your bottom teeth when you bite down, often causing aesthetic issues, tooth decay, abnormal jaw growth and gum disease.
  • Crowded teeth and a misaligned bite can prevent some teeth from emerging, causing them to become impacted.  Impacted teeth are often painful and infected.
