Types of Braces

Omar Orthodontics offers several types of braces to ensure that we can find the treatment that is right for you. We offer three main types of braces:
Smiling with traditional metal braces versus smiling with invisalign braces

  • Metal Braces: Metal braces are the most common form of braces, and are made of high-grade stainless steel. Though metal braces are more comfortable and attractive than ever, they are still quite noticeable. Adults and teens hoping to maintain a more natural looking aesthetic should consider ceramic or clear aligners.
  • Ceramic (Clear) Braces: Ceramic braces are made of a translucent material that is virtually clear. This makes them popular among our patients who are interested in maintaining a more natural-looking aesthetic during treatment, especially adults. However, ceramic braces are more fragile and their elastic ties may become discolored between visits to our office.
  • Clear Aligners, including Invisalign® and ClearCorrect™: Clear aligner systems use custom-made plastic aligners to gradually move your teeth to their proper positions. These aligners are designed through computer simulation to ensure optimal results. Because clear aligner therapy is a nearly invisible way to straighten your teeth, it is a very popular treatment among adults and other patients who would like a more discreet treatment option.

During your initial visit with our team, we will help you determine which type of braces would best meet your personal needs and preferences. For more information and to schedule your consultation, contact our Chantilly, VA office at 703-542-6336


Orthodontic Appliances

Some type of braces may require additional orthodontic appliances, like headgear. We usually recommend headgear when braces alone are not enough to achieve your desired results. We’ll discuss the best orthodontic appliances for your individual need and how to maintain your equipment between doctor visits. Use your orthodontic headgear consistently for the best possible results.

It’s okay to be curious about how braces may fit in with your look and lifestyle. If you’re not sure if braces or Invisalign are right for you, join us for a free, no-obligation consultation for new patients to assess your orthodontic needs and financial options.
