Learn About the Different Types of Braces

At Braces By Garcia, we want to help you get the smile that you love. You can join the ranks of celebrities such as Tom Cruise and Miley Cyrus who wore braces. Just consider the different types first.

Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most common type of braces for orthodontic patients. Today’s metal braces are much smaller, flatter, and more comfortable than ever before. Patients of all ages choose metal braces to help them achieve straight, beautiful smiles.

Self-Ligating Metal Braces

Our passive self-ligating brackets are designed to move teeth faster and more comfortably than braces in the past. The archwire is held in place by a movable component instead of elastic ties, which allows your teeth to move more freely. This makes treatment more comfortable and efficient!

Clear Braces

Our clear braces use the same technology as metal braces but they have the added benefit of being clear! That means people may not even realize you are wearing braces.

Clear Aligners

Invisalign® is a revolutionary treatment option that is popular with our teen and adult patients. Invisalign® uses a series of virtually undetectable, easy-to-use aligners that are customized for you. They are comfortable and removable so you can eat the foods you love without any restrictions and brush and floss normally to maintain a healthy smile.

FAQs About Braces

How much will braces cost? Are financing options available? How does my insurance work?

We can only determine treatment costs after your initial consultation is completed, as each patient’s case is unique. You can learn more about our Financing & Insurance policies on our website, or speak to one of our staff members at the office. We’ll review your financing options with you, and will work with you to maximize your insurance benefits.

It depends on your unique situation, but sometimes in order to achieve optimal results, teeth may need to be removed. However, advanced technology and methods have made this less common.
