Clear (Ceramic) Braces

Following your active orthodontic phase, you enter what everyone calls the retention stage of treatment. When your treatment is finished, you’ll be given a set of retainers that are included in your original fee. The type of retainer given varies with every patient, but most will be upper and lower invisible retainers. Retention is for life and it is imperative that you wear retainers as prescribed by your dentist to keep your teeth straight.
Orthognathic (Jaw) Surgery
Sometimes if the imbalance between the upper and lower is too severe, then braces alone are not the best treatment. In these cases, your treatment would include jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) in addition to braces.
