    Clear & Metal Braces vs. Invisalign in Morris County, NJ

    Arvay Orthodontics in Morristown and Flanders serves children and adults of all ages for quality orthodontic care using metal braces, clear braces, and Invisalign.

    A common misconception is that braces are primarily an orthodontic treatment for children. Nowadays, more adults are opting to boost their confidence by straightening their smiles. Straighter and healthier teeth and gums improve facial aesthetics and overall health. We want to give you the smile you have always dreamed of and the smile that you deserve. We offer traditional metal braces, clear ceramic braces, and Invisalign. Read further to learn more about the different types of braces our office offers. Below each description is a list of the benefits of each type.

    Metal Braces

    Metal braces are the traditional braces the media portrays when someone has to have orthodontic treatment. They are made of stainless steel, and are the most common type of braces. This option is most popular due to their affordability. Today, these braces are smaller, more attractive and more comfortable for the patient.

    • Affordable
    • Smaller & more attractive

    Clear Braces

    Clear ceramic braces are becoming more popular due to their aesthetic appeal. Teenagers and adult patients typically prefer this method of orthodontic treatment. The only disadvantage is that they are more fragile than metal braces and the elastic ties can experience discoloration.

    The Invisalign System is made up of clear aligners that are traded out to gradually move teeth. This system is available to our adult patients who have particular bite problems. Schedule an appointment to see if you are a candidate for Invisalign.
