Types of Braces

In-Ovation R (metal braces)

Braces have come a very long way in the past 10 years. For starters, they're much smaller than they used to be. At Spencer Orthodontics, we use the latest type of braces called self-ligating braces. These offer the following advantages over traditional braces:

  • Less chair time for wire changes
  • Fewer office visits
  • Shorter overall treatment time
  • Exclusive easy-open, easy-close clip technology

Dr. Spencer uses a specific type of self-ligating metal braces called In-Ovation R. To read more about the advantages offered by In-Ovation R brackets, click here.

In-Ovation C (clear braces)

Not all braces are made of highly noticeable metal brackets and wires. In fact, many of today's braces are made with either clear brackets, or natural tooth colored brackets, to provide patients with an attractive, less noticeable alternative to traditional braces. At Spencer Orthodontics, we use a type of clear bracket called In-Ovation C, which gives you the less noticeable clear color in addition to all the advantages of the In-Ovation R metal brackets.

Imagine a braces treatment that doesn't use wires or metal brackets, a treatment that is virtually pain free and doesn't require you to change your current lifestyle. With Invisalign you can straighten your teeth, and experience the benefits of a great smile, without having to deal with a mouth full of metal! Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable, comfortable aligners that straighten teeth in less time that traditional braces. To read more about Invisalign, click here.
