Why should you consider metal braces? This tried-and-true method for perfecting your smile offers a wide variety of benefits, including:
In the dental and orthodontics industries, it has been found that titanium is the most biocompatible metal to use in our profession. Titanium offers the perfect solution for a biocompatible and holistic orthodontic system. We can replace the common nickel titanium and stainless steel archwires with titanium orthodontic wires.
These are a few of the reasons many people prefer this holistic orthodontics treatment over traditional methods:
We are proud to offer the best, most sophisticated treatment options for our patients, and we specifically chose these materials because of their benefits, which include:
If you’re interested in getting braces but are interested in a more subtle form of treatment, you can choose a less noticeable alternative – clear braces! This treatment improves your appearance during treatment without sacrificing the effectiveness and cost efficiency of your results.
One of the main concerns about traditional braces is the appearance of having silver brackets and wires covering the surface of the teeth. It is impossible to talk or smile without people seeing the metal. Clear braces are a great alternative because the neutral-colored materials blend in with the natural hues of your teeth.
Clear braces are less visible to other people, so it is easy to see why this treatment is so popular among both teens and adults. Adolescents and teens often prefer clear braces because they create more vibrancy in the colors of the ties.
Regardless of your age, these orthodontic treatments are valuable and confidence-boosting at any stage in life. If you want a straight, beautiful smile, then you need to talk to an experienced orthodontist about the benefits of braces. Choose the clear design to maintain a beautiful, white smile throughout treatment time.
Clear braces are the perfect solution for patients who are looking for a straighter smile while minimizing the appearance of the braces. White wires can even be used for special occasions to minimize the visibility of the braces even more.
For example, if you are anticipating an upcoming wedding, graduation, or family pictures, consider clear braces. These clear materials will allow you to smile confidently without worrying about the visible appearance of the silver hardware making an appearance in your photos.

rAlign Aligners are Drs. Red & Ritchey’s specialized custom-made aligners, a highly effective alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment. The rAlign process helps us to effectively meet our patients’ needs for high-quality, easy-to-use, and simple yet efficient orthodontic treatment. By using cutting-edge 3D design software, we are able to use digital impressions our patients’ teeth to create customized treatment plans. When worn adequately, rAlign aligners are able to correct overbites, underbites, overly spaced teeth, crowding of teeth, and most typical orthodontic issues in the most comfortable, convenient, and subtle way possible. Treatment time for rAlign clear aligner treatment can be as quick as 2 or 3 aligners (2 to 3 weeks) and as lengthy as 30 months depending upon the specific orthodontic needs of the patient. Since our doctors and staff do all the treatment planning, development and fabrication for Align aligners, this treatment is much less costly and more customizable then other invisible aligner treatment options.
According to recommendations provided by the American Association of Orthodontists, children should have their first orthodontic evaluation before the age of 7 OR at the first sign of orthodontic problems. These early treatments can play a vital role in correcting irregular development and growth of the jaw and teeth before they get worse over time, saving you treatment time and money in the process.
Here are a few reasons why it is in your child’s best interest to schedule an orthodontic exam for them by the age of 7:
Drs. Red & Ritchey are committed to implementing the latest innovations in technology & equipment to provide the patients we serve with the most hi-tech, superior orthodontic treatment techniques and results possible.
