- Clear (Ceramic Braces)
Clear ceramic braces have an attractive translucent appearance so you really don't feel as though you are wearing braces. They are esthetically pleasing so that you feel better about yourself and your teeth being aligned.
- Traditional (Metal Braces)
Standard orthodontic treatment has evolved to a point where mini braces are bonded to the teeth. Seldom are bands that wrap around the teeth used. These braces are easy to clean, more comfortable for the lips, and can be used with different colors that make it fun for children.
- Lingual Braces
An ideal alternative to metal and ceramic braces that are placed on the inside surface (lingual, or tongue surface) of the teeth.
Invisalign - for Adults and Teens
Invisalign is a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment that works by using a series of clear, removable aligners that are changed every 2 weeks
The aligners move your teeth slowly and gently for that perfect alignment and beautiful smile.
Dr. Bancroft is a Certified Premier Invisalign Provider. A consultation with Dr. Bancroft can determine if Invisalign is the treatment of choice for you. Invisalign is a series of clear removable aligners that are changed approximately every 2 weeks. Invisalign slowly moves your teeth toward the alignment and smile that you desire. The aligners are worn 20-22 hours per day and are removed for eating, drinking something hot, and brushing/flossing your teeth. Treatment time may range from an average of 6 months for minor crowding to 12-18 months for moderate to severe crowding. Invisalign is comfortable to wear and easy to live with.
