Washington, DC, Orthodontics

Traditional metal braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. They’re made out of metal or ceramic brackets that are affixed to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics.

Braces at Ivy City Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics in Washington, DC, are a cost-effective orthodontic option to correct complex oral issues.

Invisalign is another popular treatment in Washington, DC, and is the top alternative to traditional braces. Instead of brackets and bands, the Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth.

Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and customized to fit snugly over your teeth. You’ll need to switch your invisible trays out for the next one in the series every one to two weeks to keep your teeth moving in the right direction.
