Orthodontic Treatment Options

Today, there is an orthodontic treatment option for everyone. Whether you're looking for a simple, cost-effective way to straighten your teeth or want a convenient, discreet treatment solution, your Stillwater and Woodbury orthodontists will work closely with you to determine the ideal treatment for your needs and lifestyle. Our orthodontic treatments include:

  • Metal Braces: Traditional metal braces are the oldest treatment in orthodontics, and they're still the most popular treatment we offer. Made from high-grade stainless steel, metal braces use a series of brackets and wires to move the teeth. Metal braces are highly effective, reliable, durable, and cost-effective, making them a popular treatment option for patients of all ages.

  • Clear Braces: Clear braces, or ceramic braces, use the same basic treatment mechanism as metal braces, but with brackets made from a clear ceramic composite that blends in with teeth. This makes clear braces much less noticeable, providing a discreet treatment option that still offers the reliability and durability of traditional braces.

  • Invisalign: Stillwater Invisalign does away with brackets and wires entirely, instead it uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. Invisalign aligners lay flat against the teeth, are easy to take out and put back in, and are nearly invisible when worn, making them one of the most convenient and discreet options on the market.

  • 3M Clear Braces: 3M Clarity Aligners are a discreet, removable alternative to braces that use a similar clear aligner-based treatment mechanism as Stillwater Invisalign. Instead of metal brackets and wires, 3M clear braces use a series of clear, removable plastic trays that fit directly onto the dental arch. 3M Clarity aligners are smooth to the touch, virtually invisible when worn, and easy to pop out for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing the teeth.

  • Adult Orthodontic Treatment: Despite what you may have heard, we can move healthy teeth at any age, which means it's truly never too late for a beautiful smile. We've helped countless adults achieve new smiles through convenient orthodontic treatment, and no matter how busy your lifestyle, we can design a treatment plan that works for you.

  • Early Treatment: Sometimes creating a healthy smile needs to start early – and we're here to help. Our orthodontists are proud to offer early orthodontic treatment, and we strive to carefully influence orthodontic development to minimize the overall amount of time your child will spend in braces and create the best possible smile in the long-term.

  • Adolescent Treatment: Adolescence is the most common time for orthodontics, and with good reason. We offer a wide range of treatments for our adolescent patients ranging from metal braces to Invisalign Teen, and we strive to create treatment plans that are convenient and fit into the lifestyles of busy, socially-conscious teens.
