Treament With Braces in Portland

Portland metallic braces

Metal Braces Portland

Traditional metal braces stand as one of the prevailing choices in contemporary orthodontics, and their enduring popularity is well-founded. Renowned for their unwavering reliability and effectiveness, modern metal braces have evolved to become sleeker and more comfortable than their predecessors. We offer patients two appealing variations: classic stainless steel and elegant champagne gold. Employing a network of gentle wires and brackets, these braces adeptly guide the teeth into alignment with precision. Moreover, patients can infuse a personal touch into their orthodontic journey by selecting vibrant, interchangeable bands that encircle the brackets, offering a delightful avenue for customization at every visit.

Portland ceramic braces

LightForce Ceramic Braces Portland

If you are searching for an invisible braces Portland option, look no further! At Hillsdale Orthodontics, we use LightForce Braces to provide a more subtle option for our braces patients. Ceramic braces, like LightForce, use a bracket and wire system just like traditional metal braces; however, the brackets are made of tooth-colored or clear materials to help them blend in better. This is a great option for Portland Braces patients who want the reliability of metal braces but don’t like the idea of a mouth full of metal. What sets LightForce apart from other Portland clear braces options is that each bracket is 3D printed to match the exact contour of your teeth, which means an efficient, more discreet, and more comfortable treatment from start to finish.

Invisible Treatments in Portland

Portland lingual braces

Lingual Braces Portland

Lingual braces are a discreet orthodontic option that offers an innovative approach to teeth straightening. Unlike traditional metal braces that are affixed to the front of the teeth, lingual braces are attached to the back, making them virtually invisible to others. This hidden positioning makes lingual braces a popular choice for individuals who desire the benefits of braces without aesthetic concerns. They are custom-made to fit each patient’s unique dental structure, providing effective and precise orthodontic treatment. While they may take a little time to get used to due to their placement, lingual braces offer a discreet and efficient way to achieve a beautifully aligned smile without compromising aesthetics.

Portland Invisalign

Invisalign Clear Aligners Portland

Clear aligners, such as Invisalign, are a popular and highly sought-after orthodontic solution for those seeking a discreet path to a straighter smile. These transparent, custom-made aligners gently and progressively shift the teeth into their desired positions. What sets clear aligners apart is their nearly invisible appearance, making them an appealing choice for individuals who wish to maintain a natural look during their orthodontic journey. They are removable, allowing for easy eating and oral hygiene, and tend to cause fewer irritations compared to traditional braces. Clear aligners offer convenience, comfort, and effective results, making them an easy choice for many seeking orthodontic correction.
