Getting braces is the most common orthodontic correction method, using steady, gentle pressure to gradually move teeth into their proper positions. We offer three different types of braces, depending on your aesthetic preference and budget. All are equally effective for straightening your teeth and giving you a healthy, Hollywood smile.
Watch these videos of braces being put on and taken off.
Traditional braces use brackets attached to the front of each tooth, each connected by a long archwire. When the archwire is placed into the brackets, it tries to return to its original shape. As it does, it applies pressure to move your teeth into place.
We use thermal archwires, which are activated by body heat. Thermal wires can shorten treatment time by applying gentle, continuous pressure to move your teeth into proper alignment.
Ceramic braces are made of strong, durable, smooth porcelain material, and are smoother and less visible than traditional metal braces. These braces blend beautifully with your teeth and provide a more comfortable experience throughout your treatment plan.
Invisalign is a multi-stage process using a series of custom-fit, virtually invisible plastic forms you wear over your teeth. We’ll replace each form with a new, slightly different one every couple weeks to gradually shift your teeth into place.
McCormick Orthodontics is the area’s #1 Invisalign provider, with offices in Oxford, Jennersville and North East. We’ve been helping patients improve their smiles using Invisalign and Invisalign Teen for many years.
