Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces used today. They are smaller and more comfortable than ever before. The metal braces used at Hartland Orthodontics are constructed of high-grade metal alloys that allow a significant improvement in both comfort and efficiency when compared to older generation braces.
With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile. You can pick and choose both your color and pattern at each visit.
Why settle for the limitations of traditional braces or invisible aligners like Invisalign when there are Clear Braces?
Virtually invisible, Clear Braces have “clear” advantages over traditional braces and aligners. In some ways, you get the best of both other treatment options. You get the results and speed of using braces compared to aligners, but are closer to the aesthetic of aligners than that of braces. In most cases, it is very difficult to even see that someone is wearing clear braces. Clear braces deliver a discreet treatment experience with results that will continue a lifetime.
Dr. Mika and the staff at Hartland Orthodontics specialize in creating stunning smiles using
Invisalign, as reflected by being a Preferred Invisalign Provider in Hartland. Invisalign
revolutionized the Orthodontic community several years ago by creating orthodontic solutions
without the use of traditional braces and wires. Treatment with Invisalign is performed using a
series of clear plastic aligners that gradually shift your teeth into alignment with gentle forces.
Guided by a treatment plan laid out specifically for you by Dr. Mika, a more convenient and
esthetic option in orthodontics can be offered to you. With Invisalign, you can achieve the smile
you always wanted discreetly and with minimal disruption to your every day life.
Gone are the days where our patients have the uncomfortable sensation of gooey impressions
during their treatment. At Hartland Orthodontics, we use an Itero digital scanner, which
ensures we capture the most accurate impression of your teeth without the old, unpleasant
technique of putty impressions. Having a digital impression gives us the ability to see your
teeth in 3-D as we take the scan. Having this immediate feedback allows for improved
communication with you and gives us more information to use as we create your individual
no impressions /
We utilize the latest technology in our practice to make treatment more comfortable and efficient. Our goal is to deliver the best quality of care in the shortest amount of time. We also utilize a revolutionary digital scanner to eliminate the unpleasant goopy impressions for braces and Invisalign. We use the latest in digital charting and record keeping, which allows us to analyze your treatment in every detail. Along with this, our digital radiographs and 3D models offer state of the art imagery to both analyze and monitor your treatment from start to finish.
