We'll work with you to help you select the perfect treatment method for your unique situation, but feel free to read on for more information on the orthodontic treatments we offer at our office.

Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional braces are the oldest treatment in orthodontics, and they're still the most popular method we offer. Made from high-grade stainless steel, traditional metal braces are durable, reliable, and cost-effective, providing a highly effective solution for nearly any orthodontic condition.

Clear (Ceramic) Braces

Clear braces work similarly to traditional braces, with one key difference: instead of stainless steel, the brackets are made from a clear composite material that blends in with teeth. This means that clear braces provide all the strength and advantages of traditional braces while offering a more discreet and aesthetically pleasing treatment method. That said, clear braces are slightly more fragile than traditional braces, and while the brackets themselves don't stain, the elastic ties used to hold the archwire in place can discolor between appointments.


Invisalign is a revolutionary alternative to braces that does away with brackets and wires entirely. Instead, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten the teeth that fit directly against the dental arch. The aligners are virtually invisible when worn, so almost no one will know you're straightening your teeth. Plus, because you remove the aligners to eat, drink, brush, and floss, you can still enjoy your favorite foods and maintaining oral hygiene is as easy as ever! Invisalign is a very convenient treatment method that's particularly popular with our adult orthodontic treatment patients.

Invisalign Teen

Invisalign Teen offers all the advantages of the regular Invisalign System in a treatment method that's been re-engineered to fit the teenage lifestyle. In addition to the aesthetic and convenience benefits that Invisalign offers, Invisalign Teen aligners have built-in compliance indicators that let Dr. Caraway, parents, and teens themselves know if the aligners are being worn long enough or if the patient needs to be a bit more diligent. What's more, every Invisalign Teen treatment course comes with 6 free replacement aligners, so there's never a need to worry if any aligners get lost or broken. Combined with all the other advantages that Invisalign offers, Invisalign Teen is a great option for busy, socially-conscious teenagers.
