INVISALIGN®

Barakat Orthodontics is proud to be an Elite Provider of Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen®. Invisalign® is a revolutionary straightening system that utilizes clear aligner trays uniquely designed for your orthodontic requirements. The aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your orthodontist plans out for you.

INVISALIGN TEEN®

Did your dentist just recommend orthodontic treatment? Have all your permanent teeth erupted and your smile could use a tweak? Are you disappointed that you have to get braces going into high school? Don’t be! Invisalign Teen® may be the solution for you. With Invisalign Teen®, no one will know you have braces. You can get the smile you’ve always wanted without drawing attention to your teeth!

TRADITIONAL BRACES

Traditional braces are the most common type of braces, made of high-quality stainless steel or titanium. Traditional braces can correct crooked and crowded teeth, a misaligned bite, and jaw problems. Traditional braces have come a long way over the years, becoming sleeker, smaller, and more comfortable. And that’s certainly something to smile about!

INCOGNITO HIDDEN BRACES

Incognito Hidden Braces are another esthetic alternative for braces treatment. Placed on the back of your teeth, they are completely hidden when you smile. Incognito Hidden Braces are 100% customized to follow the contours of your teeth for comfort and performance. Your unique prescription, determined by Dr. Barakat, is built into your Incognito Hidden Braces. Your wires are bent to a precise shape with robotic technology.

CLEAR BRACES

Clear braces have the same components as traditional braces, except the brackets are clear. They are made of ceramic or high-grade plastic and provide the same function as traditional braces, but with a heightened aesthetic appeal. Clear brackets present a less noticeable alternative to metal. Clear braces are used for the upper teeth in cases where the complexity of treatment is minimal.

SELF-LIGATING BRACES

Self-ligating braces are made from the same durable materials as traditional braces. However, self-ligating braces do not require the use of elastics, meaning fewer appointments and less friction being placed on your teeth. The clip in technology holds the archwire in place with consistent pressure so the movement of the teeth is constant.
