Braces are just one type of appliance used to align teeth. Learn more about some of the other appliances Dental Town uses.
Elastic Bands (rubber bands)
There are many reasons our patients love the bonding service we offer, and we are confident that you will love the natural, beautiful results too. To find out if tooth bonding is right for you, call Dental Town to schedule your consultation appointment.
A palatal expander is a metal expander that is attached to the permanent molars. The expander widens (expands) the upper jaw by applying a gentle force to the molars each time it is adjusted. This increases the size of the mouth and allows more room for adult teeth to grow in more comfortably.
Retainers are a custom-ﬁt plastic or wire that are placed over the teeth to keep them from moving. Retainers can be worn during the day or overnight and are usually removable. We will instruct you on how to care for your retainer and when to wear it.
Separators or Spacers
These small rubber doughnuts are placed between the teeth to push them far enough apart so there is enough space for the placement of orthodontic bands at a following appointment.
