Thanks to today’s advances in orthodontic technology. At Smiles For Kids, we 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, the “braceless” alternative to straight teeth. Dr. Jyoti Sharma 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.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on teenage and adult patients who have aesthetic concerns. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene since ceramic braces are larger. The only drawback to ceramic brackets is that they are more fragile and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits with certain foods and smoking.

Invisible Braces

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! Invisalign 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.

Dr. Jyoti Sharma has distinguished herself in his profession by becoming Board Certified by the American Board of Orthodontics, treating both children and adults. 

Dr. Sharma is also one of only a few orthodontists in the U.S. who is a Dual Specialist. She is both a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist and a Board Certified Orthodontist. She finished her Doctor of Dental Medicine and Pediatric Dentistry Residency at prestigious Goldman School of Dental Medicine, Boston University, Boston, Ma.
 As a dual specialist, she focuses on growth and development of growing children and has developed her ability to make precise decisions to utilize the growth potential of both upper and lower jaws. She uses her professional training and expertise to balance between biomechanics and facial growth structures.
Dr. Sharma is a Diplomate of both the American Board of Orthodontics, the oldest and one of the most prestigious boards in dentistry and the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.  Board certification is a process by which an individual orthodontist is voluntarily examined by their peers to assess their orthodontic knowledge and clinical skills. The passage of this examination process is a demonstration of both expertise in the dental profession, and the committed pursuit of continued proficiency and excellence in orthodontics.
