Types of Braces

Whether you choose braces or Invisalign®, you can expect the highest standard of personalized care from an orthodontist with over 30 years of experience and a team dedicated to going above-and-beyond for you.
Empower® Self-ligating Braces

Empower self-ligating braces are a more advanced alternative to traditional braces. With a passive ‘clip’ mechanism that hinges brackets to the wires (instead of using rubber bands), self-ligating braces are more hygienic, more comfortable and more efficient than traditional solutions!


Choose clear or metal self-ligating braces to suit your style.

Invisalign® Clear Aligners

You can smile with confidence from day 1 with Invisalign treatment! Clear aligners are conveniently removable, comfortable, and custom-designed just for you.

Dr. Buttram has the experience necessary to treat patients of all ages with Invisalign. 

Clear Ceramic Braces

Clear braces use durable ceramic brackets that blend in with the natural color of your teeth. They’re specially designed for comfort and durability with rounded brackets that minimize contact with your cheeks.


Ceramic braces are cool, clear, and just as effective as traditional braces. 

Traditional Metal Braces

Prefer a more traditional look? Metal braces are still in style. Made of high-grade, stainless steel material, metal braces use brackets, wires and colored rubber bands to guide teeth into the ideal alignment. 


Dr. Buttram can treat a wide range of orthodontic issues – from minor crookedness to complex bite misalignments – with metal braces.

And enjoy the journey along the way.
