Types of Braces


Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.  Dr. Laidlaw uses Unitek Victory Series Low Profile brackets which are the industry gold-standard for brackets.  These miniature metal brackets feature a high bond-strength with a low profile to ensure optimal patient comfort and esthetics.

Clarity Advanced™ braces are a new generation of beauty and comfort in clear braces.  These brackets feature a comfortable design with a translucent appearance. Made from a hard ceramic material, these braces won’t stain or discolor. With the same performance as metal braces, many patients are now choosing the clear option – Clarity!



The Invisalign® system is a series of clear overlay templates called aligners that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. This system is available to adult and teenage  patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign system.
