The Orthodontics Center of NYC located on the Upper East Side in Manhattan (New York) offers the most comprehensive types of orthodontic braces on the market for children, teens, and adults to fit any type of lifestyle and budget. We offer orthodontic braces and Invisalign consultations.
- Clear Aligners: We offer “clear aligners” which are similar to Invisalign. The main difference is that the clear aligners are not manufactured by the makers of Invisalign® – Align Technology.
- Clear Braces: Often referred to as “Ceramic Braces” these clear braces are made of translucent material and are vaguely noticeable. These braces are very with both our teen and adult orthodontic braces patients, due to their cosmetic appeal.
- Fixed Metal Braces (Traditional Braces): Straight Wire braces are the most common type of braces used by orthodontists as well as the most inexpensive type of braces. With these braces, you can create your own colorful combination of elastics for your braces. These braces are the most commonly elected type of braces by our NYC teenage patients. This is also a very inexpensive option.
- Damon Braces: Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the archwire, reducing the amount of pressure exerted on the teeth and allowing the teeth to move more freely, quickly, and comfortably. Damon tie-less braces eliminate the need for elastic or metal “ties.” With Damon braces, you can experience treatment without tightening.
- Functional Braces: Functional braces only work in growing children and adolescents. Functional braces may be necessary to correct very protruding upper or lower front teeth, improve the way molar teeth bite together, or even improve your facial profile so that the jaws look more aligned with each other when you look at the face in profile. Functional braces are a component in oral myofunctional therapy – which our best in class Upper East Side NYC orthodontic practice offers.
- Invisalign®: Invisalign is the most contemporary orthodontic braces technology to straighten misaligned teeth in an almost invisible way, without wires or metal braces. Invisalign is an extremely popular type of braces selected by teens and adults.
- Invisalign Teen®: Similar to traditional Invisalign and allows free replacement of lost aligners,
- Lingual Braces: (a form of invisible braces) These braces are attached to the inner surface of the tooth, inside the mouth where they cannot be seen. Your teeth can be straightened by our best in class orthodontists without worrying about your appearance. These braces are most commonly elected by the NYC orthodontist’s adult orthodontic braces patients – if they do not qualify for Invisalign.
- Removable Braces: Removable braces click onto your teeth and can be removed when necessary. This type of orthodontic brace is usually only used for the upper teeth and is limited in its capabilities and is customized to your unique anatomy.
