As one of the most common orthodontic treatments available to both children and adults, traditional orthodontic braces are ideal for anyone looking to achieve a straighter, healthier smile. Made from an advanced system of wires, brackets, and bands, braces gently and gradually apply pressure to your teeth in order to move them into a more ideal position. Each move is calibrated specifically to produce outstanding results. Dr. Clark Schneekluth is able to use braces to correct misalignments in both your teeth and bite.
Under the caring direction of our orthodontist and team at Schneekluth Orthodontics, you do not have to fear the process of getting or maintaining braces. While some soreness is associated with placing braces, the use of braces is relatively painless and easy to complete. We will work closely with you or your child to manage any discomfort and help you understand how to take care of your braces properly. There are many advantages to achieving a straighter smile, including improved self-confidence and overall oral health.

Most people who want their teeth straightened choose metal braces. These are made using high-grade stainless steel. The ones applied today are less noticeable, easier to tolerate and better looking than those in years past.
Ceramic braces are less noticeable than the modern metal braces since they are translucent in color, being made of clear material. Adults seem to like these best for cosmetic reasons. There is a drawback though in that the ceramic brackets are more fragile than the metal ones and the elastic ties do tend to become discolored between visits to the orthodontist.
