Braces

Brace Yourself Lancaster, PA!

Braces are also called ‘fixed’ appliances in that they are attached to the teeth. The best thing about braces are that they are tried and true – in use for decades and able to solve most any orthodontic problem. Children, adolescents and the young at heart (!) like that they can select cool colors with to go with their braces. LOA uses several types of braces, tailoring the treatment to the patient’s specific needs.

Metal braces

Traditional metal braces are one of the most well-known and reliable methods for straightening teeth. They are ideal for correcting all types of orthodontic problems. We use low profile brackets made of the highest quality stainless steel for increased comfort and durability. In conjunction with traditional braces, we utilize SureSmile digital treatment planning and customized wires to straighten your teeth in the shortest time possible.

Hidden Braces

Braces on the tongue side of the teeth, also called lingual orthodontics, is a very cosmetic way to align teeth since there are no visible attachments at all. LOA Orthodontics uses Suresmile technology and has considerable experience providing hidden braces if you desire the most esthetic approach to achieveing an LOAsmile. Dr. Manny has lectured for both the Australian-Asian Society of Lingual Orthodontics in Sydney and the American Society of Lingual Orthodontics in New Orleans and has taught the techniques of lingual orthodontics at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. The entire LOA clinical team has been fully trained in and has utilized hidden braces to solve all orthodontic problems.

Ceramic braces

Ceramic brackets are a great option for patients looking for a less noticeable way to straighten their teeth. They offer the same reliable and efficient results as metal braces but with greater esthetics. The ceramic bracket is stain resistant and discrete so the brackets blend in with tooth color.
