Traditional Braces

Traditional braces consist of metal wires and brackets. The brackets have become much smaller over the years, however, these are still the most noticeable type of braces. The benefits of traditional braces include their affordability, durability, and effectiveness at correcting simple and complex alignment problems in the teeth and jaw alike. They are an ideal choice for younger patients, but they are a great choice for adults as well who want to use the most reliable treatment available today.

Clear/Ceramic Braces

Clear or ceramic braces use the same technique as traditional braces to straighten the teeth, but the brackets are made of a see-through material in order to help them blend in better. Clear braces can deliver the same results as the traditional variety, but are much less noticeable, making them a better fit for older, more image-conscious children. Most patients who could benefit from orthodontic treatment are good candidates for clear braces, though there are some complex issues that may require metal braces to be adequately addressed.

Lingual Braces (Incognito)

Lingual braces allow you to straighten your teeth without compromising your current smile in the slightest. Lingual fixed braces are placed on the inside/backs of your teeth and are out of sight, meaning no one will be able to tell you have them. They are comfortable to wear and are as effective as traditional braces. If you’re looking for a solution that combines the best of reliability and aesthetics, lingual braces are by far the best choice.

Orthognathic Surgery

Orthognathic surgery, also known as corrective jaw surgery, is primarily used to correct a misaligned bite that can’t be fully addressed with traditional orthodontics. This type of procedure is typically necessary if one jaw is noticeably underdeveloped compared to the other, or if a patient has some type of congenital defect. Precise treatment planning and patient comfort are extremely important to how we provide this treatment. Often, orthognathic surgery is used in conjunction with other orthodontic treatments in order to achieve a healthy, attractive, and functional smile.

Phase I Pediatric Orthodontics

Dr. Holland recommends that every child should receive an orthodontic evaluation no later than age 7. This gives him the chance to spot any current teeth alignment issues your child might have as well as see the signs of others that might develop in the future. He may recommend using Phase I Pediatric Orthodontics, which is designed to correct issues in the baby teeth while giving the adult teeth enough room to come in properly. When used, this approach can help lessen orthodontic issues and even correct some entirely.

Invisalign® & 3M Clarity Aligners

Invisalign is an innovative aligner system in which a patient wears a progressive series of clear plastic mouth trays in order to shift their teeth. Adults love Invisalign because the trays themselves practically disappear on the teeth, meaning patients don’t have to worry about people noticing their treatment. The trays also slip on and off quite easily, allowing someone to maintain their normal diet and brushing habits while getting the straighter smile they’ve always wanted.

Orthodontic Appliances

Dr. Holland can use more than just braces to help his patients achieve straighter smiles! Space maintainers ensure that erupting adult teeth are able to come in straight, and an RPE (rapid palatal expander) can help correct and even prevent crowding issues. He can also provide retainers that help newly shifted teeth stay in place after the braces have come off, helping patients maintain their brand new smiles for years to come.

Dentofacial Orthopedics

While orthodontics is mostly concerned about adjusting the position and orientation of the teeth, dentofacial orthopedics can help guide the growth of the bone structure surrounding the teeth. This kind of treatment can help a child’s face develop in a more symmetrical and healthy way while also correcting any imbalances that would inhibit oral function. It can also be used with adult patients to fix problems like a prominent overbite or under bite.
