Types of Braces
Today’s braces have come a long way. You can get clear braces, tooth-colored braces, or even behind-the-teeth braces in some cases. Brackets are smaller and slimmer than ever, making braces both more comfortable and less obvious than they were years ago. Teens and adults also have the option of invisible aligners for teeth straightening (Invisalign®) instead of traditional braces.
Braces for Kids - Pre-Orthodontic Observation
Kids who have overbite, underbite, crossbite or other issues may be eligible for braces based on an orthodontic evaluation with Dr. Feldman. If your child’s teeth are expected to erupt ― or are already erupting ― in such a way that it causes problems in adolescence and adulthood, braces might be a good option now.
