Types of Braces

Types of Braces Available in Fairbanks

At Alaska Braces, we proudly offer children, teens and adult patients the best orthodontic appliances and services in Fairbanks. We recognize that each smile is unique, so we provide each one of our patients with a wide range of treatment options. To ensure that your child receives the proper orthodontic appliances to align his or her teeth, Dr. Hobson and his friendly team meet with you to evaluate any misalignment, overbite, underbite or openbite and discuss orthodontic treatment plans during your first visit. Orthodontics treatment may involve adult braces, dental braces, ceramic braces, clear braces, lingual (behind the teeth) braces or Invisalign braces (clear aligners).

Metal Braces

Metal braces are made of high-quality, durable stainless steel. They are the most common type of braces. The brackets, which are bonded to the front of each tooth, are connected by an archwire, which helps guide the teeth into the correct positions. Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.

Gold Braces

Midas brackets are the standard by which all other gold braces are measured. Micro-sized with a luxurious luster, our complete selection of high-quality wires allows for a look that is unsurpassed in beauty and offers unparalleled aesthetics without compromising their exceptional properties. All wires have a natural arch form.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces move teeth just as efficiently as metal braces, except the brackets are clear so they are less noticeable. They are most popular with adult patients due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawbacks to ceramic braces are that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.

Invisalign Braces, Adult Braces, Invisible Braces, Clear Braces

The Invisalign System is a series of clear overlay templates called aligners that are generated by computer simulation to gradually move your teeth. This system is available to adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems (e.g. overbite, underbite or openbite). Ask us if the Invisalign system is right for you.
