Silver or Gold Metal Braces

Metal braces (traditional braces) have been used for over 100 years to straighten teeth, and that’s because they work. The metal braces we offer at Moody Orthodontics are much smaller, less noticeable, and more comfortable than ever.

You can choose metal braces in either Silver or Gold, and you can choose from various fun color ties that hold the wire in place.  Make a bold statement and change them up at each appointment!

Ceramic or Clear Braces

Ceramic or “clear” braces offer an aesthetic alternative to metal braces. Unlike the brackets in metal braces, ceramic brackets are clear and are designed to match your tooth color. This makes them nearly invisible.

Moody Orthodontics is proud to offer one of the best options for clear braces available today: 3M Clarity™ ADVANCED Ceramic Brackets and Technically Beautiful ™ Radiance Plus™ by American. These braces do not stain or fracture and are superior to many other clear braces available.

Invisalign® Clear Aligners

Invisalign is often the best, most esthetic, and convenient option for those with a busy lifestyle.  It requires fewer office visits and is as effective as traditional braces for teen and adult orthodontics.

  1. The technology uses a series of clear removable trays called “aligners” created from a scan of YOUR mouth.
  2. Dr. Moody will prescribe the movements of your teeth in small steps until they reach the desired final position.
  3. With Invisalign®, you can remove your aligners occasionally for special occasions, to eat and drink whatever you want, and it allows you to brush and floss normally.
