Braces for all ages

Types of braces

Thanks to today’s advances in orthodontic technology, Alizadeh & Schreiner Orthodontics can provide our patients with more options when it comes to wearing braces than ever before. While metal braces are still widely used, clear braces are very popular with teens and adults who are self-conscious about wearing braces.

Damon and Damon Clear braces

The Damon System of self-ligating braces is an innovative orthodontic advancement that our practice proudly offers. Alizadeh & Schreiner Orthodontics is the first practice in St. Louis to offer the Damon System. Damon System braces can align your teeth more quickly and with less discomfort than traditional braces. In addition, Damon System braces require fewer adjustments, which means your number of visits to our office will be significantly reduced. Damon System braces are available in clear ceramic brackets and metal brackets, giving you two great options for one great smile: Yours!

Invisible braces (Lingual braces)

Lingual braces are the invisible alternative for patients who don’t want to wear braces or when Invisalign® is not an option. Placed behind your teeth, no one will know that you are wearing braces unless you tell them. These braces are created using state-of-the-art technology and are 100% customized to the shape of your teeth and dental situation. Lingual braces have a unique prescription that our team creates for you, built-in to ensure you get the results that you want. With lingual braces, you get efficient, effective tooth movement with great aesthetics.
