Types of Braces

Metal Braces

When most people think of braces, they envision metal ones. While metal braces are the most traditional option for straightening teeth, they have come a long way over the years. We are proud to use some of the highest quality braces available, designed right here in Minnesota by 3M! These braces are low-profile and have curved edges, making them more comfortable than ever. Don't forget to try different colors throughout your treatmentwe have 21 to choose from!


Tooth-Colored (Ceramic) Braces

In the past, tooth-colored braces were reserved for adults. Not anymore! At Central Minnesota Orthodontics, our goal is to make you smile. That's why all our patients can choose to have tooth-colored braces... at no extra charge! We use only the most advanced ceramic brackets, which are less bulky, less noticeable and more comfortable than anything else on the market. Want to have some fun with them? Adding colored elastics makes them really POP!



Clear Aligners (Invisalign®)

Do you want to straighten your teeth in the least noticeable way? Are you concerned about keeping brackets and wires clean? If so, you may prefer clear aligner treatment, which gradually moves your teeth using a series of nearly invisible plastic trays. To achieve ideal results, our experienced orthodontists customize each patient's treatment. We are proud to be a Platinum Provider of Invisalign®, the best clear aligner system available!
