Types of Braces

Share:

At Hoskinson Orthodontics we take pride in getting to know each and every one of our patients that comes through our practice doors. Every patient has individual needs and Dr. Hoskinson is happy to come up with a treatment plan for each orthodontic case. While some of our younger patients might not be candidates for Invisalign or Invisalign Teen, it could be the perfect option for a self-conscious teen or an adult that wants to keep their treatment under wraps. This is why we are excited to be able to offer multiple types of braces for our patients in the Scotia, Schenectady, Glenville and Amsterdam areas of New York.

Traditional Metal Braces

When most people picture orthodontic braces this is what typically comes to mind. Traditional braces remain the most common treatment option for our patients. Metal braces prove to be a very efficient treatment to move teeth. Metal orthodontic braces are smaller and more attractive than in the past so patients can flash their smile with more confidence.

Ceramic Braces

This form of orthodontic braces is very popular amongst teen and adult patients. Ceramic braces are made of a clear material offering a cosmetic appeal to patients who may be self-conscious about getting braces at an older age. The one concern with ceramic braces is that they can be more fragile than traditional metal braces leaving more room for visits to our Scotia office should something break.

Invisalign® Clear Braces

This is one of the most popular options for orthodontic treatment amongst adults who may be self-conscious about undergoing treatment. The Invisalign system offers patients a set of clear aligners that can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing. These aligners are generated by computer simulation to gradually move your teeth into the desired position by Dr. Hoskinson. If you think that you may be a candidate for the Invisalign system please don’t hesitate to contact us for a consultation with the Doctor.
