Metal Braces & More
Most patients we treat at Embrace Orthodontics choose traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth.
Metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment, but you have other options, too.
After your first free consultation, Dr. Li will talk to you about which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.
Fixed Vs. Removable Appliances
At Embrace Orthodontics, we believe patients should be well informed when it comes to their treatment.
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.
Besides the obvious differences, Dr. Li uses Invisalign aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems.
At Embrace Orthodontics, we generally use fixed appliances for comprehensive and serious treatment.
Invisalign® & Invisalign for Teens
Unlike traditional braces, this kind of orthodontic treatment doesn’t rely on a system of metal or ceramic brackets and wires.
The Invisalign system is made up of a series of custom clear trays called aligners that are removable and nearly invisible. This is perfect for Embrace Orthodontics patients who want a more subtle treatment option.
At Embrace Orthodontics, we’re proud to offer clear braces to our Ann Arbor area patients.
Clear braces use the same parts as traditional braces but are made from clear ceramic material, so they blend in with your teeth.
Today's metal braces are smaller, lighter, and more comfortable to wear than ever before.
At Embrace Orthodontics, metal braces are the top treatment choice for patients of all ages.
