You've Got Options

Most patients we treat choose traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth.

While metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment, you have other options, like Invisalign.

After your first free consultation, Dr. William Kottemann, Dr. Kraig Kottemann, Dr. Scott Kottemann, or Dr. Rosemary Lelich will talk to you about which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.

Fixed Vs. Removable Appliances

It’s important to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances.

Fixed appliances, like braces, are attached to your teeth and aren’t taken off until you complete your treatment.

Removable appliances, like Invisalign’s aligner system, are worn about 20-22 hours a day but can be taken off easily.

Aside from the obvious differences, Invisalign aligners are best at treating mild to moderate orthodontic problems.

Fixed appliances are generally needed for more serious and comprehensive treatment.
