Types of Braces

Thanks to advances in orthodontic technology, Harmony Orthodontics can provide our patients with more options when it comes to wearing braces than ever before. While traditional metal braces are still widely used, clear braces are very popular with teens and adults who are self-conscious about wearing braces, along with Invisalign removable aligners, an easily removable alternative to straighten teeth. Dr. Mathieson will help you determine which treatment option is right for you.

Metal Braces​

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces used today. They are smaller and more comfortable than ever before and constructed of high-grade space age metal alloys. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.​

Clear Braces

At Harmony Orthodontics, we’re proud to offer ceramic braces to our patients in Canton, Woodstock, and the surrounding areas! Also known as ceramic braces, tooth-colored braces, or aesthetic braces, these work just like metal braces.

LightForce Clear Braces

At Harmony Orthodontics, we offer LightForce clear braces to give you personalized treatment and outstanding results. Dr. Mathieson uses this cutting-edge treatment to give you a quicker, more comfortable treatment experience with our Canton office.

InBrace Hidden Treatment

With your custom treatment plan from Dr. Mathieson, you’ll fall in love with InBrace Hidden Treatment. InBrace’s Smartwire system is personalized for your mouth and designed to gently move your teeth without the need for bulky brackets or trays.

Clear Aligners

Clear appliances, such as Invisalign, use a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth. No one can tell you are wearing those aligners because they are invisible! The aligners are removable so you are not limited in what you can eat and drink during treatment. Plus…brushing and flossing are less of a hassle. The aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.
