Types of Braces

Dr. Perry Do offers a variety of options for your orthodontic treatment. From the standard metal braces to clear braces, you can discuss these options with Dr. Do at your fist visit. Learn More About Your Options.


Metal braces are made of high-grade stainless steel and are the most common. If you are involved in contact sports we strongly suggest metal braces. A fun part of your treatment is adding color bands to your braces at each visit!


Dr. Do also offers self-ligating braces that use a slide mechanism, not the bands, to hold the arch wire in place. This eliminates much of the friction and binding active tooth movement. The brackets provide not only exceptional aesthetics, but quicker treatment time as well!


Another treatment option is clear braces. The clear braces won’t discolor or stain and are transparent. Clear braces are a great option for adult patients and teens as well.


Invisalign® is a state-of-the-art alternative to metal braces that is virtually undetectable. This option straightens your teeth without brackets or wires. These are an appliance called aligners.
