Stride Custom Braces
Stride Custom Braces are engineered to match your unique anatomy, giving you the smile you were
alwavs meant to have. From start to finish, every aspect of your treatment is customized just for you.

Traditional Braces
Even though there are many types of braces, traditional braces are still the most popular. Great strides have been made since they were first used, and they are becoming more comfortable and effective.

Traditional braces use stainless steel brackets and archwires to move your teeth into their proper position. Many teenagers like to decorate their braces with colored rubber bands to give them a colorful and unique smile.

Some self-ligating braces use ceramic or even clear brackets. They use a specialized clip instead of elastics to keep the wires in place. These clips decrease the pressure on the teeth.

Clear braces
Clear braces are less visible on your teeth than traditional braces are. Because of this, they are very common with teenagers and even adults who want better smiles.

Even though you can’t see them, care needs to be taken to maintain your oral hygiene. Clear braces are more likely to break than metal braces, and you can break them when eating. Ceramic braces are more commonly used on the upper front teeth than on lower teeth so that they are less likely to break.
