Children / Teen Dental Cleanings and Orthodontic Adjustments in One Easy Appointment After School Hours
Why Would I Choose Metal / Clear Braces Vs. Clear Orthodontic Trays?
The Top 3 Reasons for Choosing Traditional Braces Over Clear Orthodontic Trays Are:
- “Set it and Forget It” – This tried-and-true concept applies to Traditional Orthodontics when it comes to looking for your teen child’s best outcome in the minimum amount of time without making your child worry about where their trays are or progress checks on their own.
- Provider-based Results – This is due to the fact that much more of the outcome is placed in the dentist’s hands when brackets and wires are placed in the mouth for 24 hours a day until the next visit.
- Your teen has excellent Oral Hygiene – if your teen gets multiple raving reviews from the dental hygienist or Dr. Rouse at their dental check-ups, taking care of traditional braces should be a natural extension of that care and attention.
METAL VS. CLEAR BRACKETS
Ceramic (Clear) Braces
Ceramic (clear) braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and are more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.
Traditional (Metal) Braces

Depending on the treatment goals, the total treatment time can be very comparable if all instructions are followed, along with at-home care.
Please see our image below the F.A.Q. Section on this page as it lists all the foods needed to avoid broken brackets. Please call with additional questions.
Braces done with our indirect bonding trays takes less time than conventional placement with a measurement device while you are in the chair. However, patients are still being subjected to brackets and wires after they leave the office.
That is why we recommend some type of pain alleviation with Advil/Motrin/NSAID's for the first few days after braces are put on.
It will get easier as your mouth gets used to the braces and using orthodontic wax for anything that pokes, massaging your gums with an electric or manual tooth brush, and sticking to a soft diet for the first few days is the secret to your success.
It is easier to list all of the colors we don't 🙂 We can do different color combinations on request and love helping teen's customize their look!
