Types of Braces

Dr. Lovingood offers the latest orthodontic technologies to get you smiling faster!


Self-Ligating Braces are revolutionary in design. This system has a built in sliding door that allows the archwire to slide more freely so your teeth move more comfortably during treatment. Traditional braces use elastic bands to hold wires in place which cause more friction and can at times be very uncomfortable for patients. Self-ligating braces are not only more comfortable, they are more efficient as well.  You can expect shorter appointment times and less frequent appointments. You can also expect quality results. With complete tooth control, the finished alignment of your teeth will never look better!

Invisalign, the invisible way to straighten your teeth WITHOUT metal brackets and wires, is a popular option among our adult and teen patients. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable and comfortable “aligners” that gradually shift your teeth into the desired positions.
