We treat kids, teens, and adults all through different orthodontic appliances including metal braces, Iconix braces, and clear aligners.

The early symptoms include crooked and crowded teeth causing speech problems, eating issues, and breathing problems.

Braces cost is higher as compared to retainers because braces are attached for a longer time. However, the retainers are worn for a shorter time period to just retain the teeth in their newly aligned position.

Following a proper food diet under braces along with proper brushing and flossing will help to maintain a healthy living with braces.

Clear plastic retainers are the most affordable option including Essix retainer.

If you are wearing metal braces your number of visits will be higher, however with the clear aligners your number of visits will be lower.
