Types of Braces

Providing Quality Orthodontic Treatments

Wiregrass Orthodontic Specialists is proud to provide children and adults residing Dothan, Enterprise, and Ozark, Alabama with quality orthodontic care. Recognizing that every patient’s needs are different, we offer several types of braces to choose from including Invisalign, metal and clear braces. Upon your first visit, Dr. Howell will perform a thorough examination and discuss what options may be best suited for you. To learn more about our treatment options, continue reading below.



Rather than being cemented or bonded, the Invisalign system is a series of clear aligners that are completely removable which allows for greater comfort, the ability to eat what you’d like, and are invisible to those around you.

Invisalign Teen

Invisalign Teen provides the same solution to misaligned teeth as Invisalign does, but made specifically for teens. This system of clear aligners provides parents with the ability to track their child’s progress with a blue dot wear indicator crafted into them. Invisalign Teen patients can still eat, drink, brush and floss normally and most importantly, smile with confidence!

Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most common types of braces. These stainless steel braces are smaller and significantly more comfortable than they have been in past years.

Clear Braces

Made of a clear substance, ceramic braces are aesthetically appealing and are very popular among adult patients. Unfortunately, ceramic braces are more fragile and the elastic bands may discolor between appointments.
