At Lunsford McCaffrey Orthodontics, we provide many different types of braces to in West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach, Florida, area patients. The range of braces we have available at our office allows us to provide our patients with multiple treatment plan options and discuss which type of braces are right for you and your orthodontic situation.
When most people think of braces, they think of traditional metal braces because this type of braces are the most common. Unlike the braces of the past, today’s modern metal braces are smaller and more comfortable than ever. They are made of high-grade stainless steel and are a tried and true method to align teeth. Patients can also customize their metal braces with fun colorful elastics used to hold the arch wire in place.
Created by Dr. Dwight Damon, these brackets use self-ligation technology that allows the arch wire to move back and forth inside the bracket. Damon braces are a more comfortable form of orthodontic treatment and this type of bracket can often reduce treatment time and the number of adjustments needed to be made at our West Palm Beach practice.
Ceramic braces are the most discreet choice for our patients. They are made of an almost clear material, making them a very popular choice for our adult patients looking for a more cosmetically appealing form of orthodontic treatment. It is important to keep in mind that while they are comfortable and aesthetically pleasing, clear braces are more fragile than metal braces and the elastic ties that hold the wire can discolor between appointments.
The Invisalign® system is a series of removable clear aligners that are made custom for you as determined by Dr. Kevin McCaffrey. Every two or three weeks, patients progress to the next set of aligners to slowly move teeth into the proper alignment. Invisalign® treatment is a great solution for patients looking to improve their smile discreetly. Our orthodontist can determine if you are candidate for Invisalign® aligners during your consultation visit to our office.
Invisalign® Teen is the same discreet way to a perfect smile as Invisalign aligners, with a few modifications for teen patients. With blue-to-clear, color-changing aligners to show how long each aligner has been worn, six free replacement aligners in case some are lost or broken, and other changes designed to accommodate growing mouths, Invisalign Teen is the perfect teeth-straightening system for teens’ busy lifestyles!
As a practice that utilized the latest orthodontic technology, we are proud to offer AcceleDent to our patients. The AcceleDent orthodontic appliance has shown to accelerate orthodontic treatment using pulsating forces, so you can be put on the fast track to straighter teeth!
