  • Fixed Metal Braces

    Fixed metal braces are the most common type, also referred to as “train tracks”. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Each bracket is fabricated to fit your tooth and is precisely cemented to the tooth by your orthodontist. The metal wires move your teeth into their correct positions and are changed at each adjustment appointment

  • Aesthetic Fixed Braces

    Our aesthetic fixed braces are most popular with patients who are concerned with the look of metal braces. They have cosmetic appeal because they are made mainly of porcelain. Celebrities, such as Tom Cruise, have chosen aesthetic braces over traditional metal braces.

  • SureSmile®

    The most advanced and comprehensive system available today. The SureSmile® state-of-the-art technology yields enhanced patient comfort, fewer trips to the office and shorter treatment times. Through 3-D imaging and customisation of each patient’s archwires, the SureSmile system gives Dr. Crotty more control to precisely configure your treatment plan. The Shape Memory alloy wires used in the SureSmile design are more effective than the traditional archwires used in conventional braces, allowing for shorter treatment and less discomfort.

  • Invisalign®

    The Invisalign System is a series of clear overlay templates—called aligners—that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. This system is available to adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign system.

  • Teen Invisalign®

    Let Invisalign® Teen help perfect your teen’s smile by using clear aligners! Your child’s teenage memories can be captured with confidence. Invisalign Teen aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means your teenager can straighten his or her teeth without anyone knowing!

  • Hidden Fixed Braces

    openmouthOur hidden fixed braces are most popular with patients who are not prepared to have visible braces. They are placed on the tongue surface of the teeth, hence they are technically called “lingual braces”. They are as effective as the traditional visible braces, although treatment may take a bit longer with them. Incognito is a common type of lingual brace. Dr. Crotty also uses SureSmile QT which he feels is a superior system, allowing a more accurate combination of hidden braces on the upper teeth and standard braces on the lower teeth.
