Sanford Braces

Braces in Sanford and Bayboro are a superb choice if you have complex dental issues. With the potential to align teeth and close gaps more quickly than other methods, braces can often shorten your overall treatment time.

At Smith & Smith Orthodontics, we use traditional metal and ceramic braces. These braces are metal or ceramic brackets attached to the teeth, linked by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics.

We also feature the Empower® self-ligating braces from American Orthodontics, the only self-ligating braces made in the U.S. This choice ensures high-quality materials and craftsmanship go into your orthodontic treatment. Empower braces allow for better tooth movement.

Sanford Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are incredibly popular with patients and orthodontists in Sanford and Bayboro and are a top alternative to traditional braces. Instead of brackets and bands, the clear aligner system uses a series of transparent, removable trays to gradually straighten your teeth.

Our aligners are made from a comfortable plastic material and are custom-fitted to sit snugly over your teeth. To keep your teeth moving in the right direction, you'll need to switch your trays out for the next one in the series every one to two weeks.

We’re proud to offer both 3M Clarity and in-house uLab aligners. Remember to follow Dr. Brian and Dr. Lynn’s guidelines. For best results, we recommend wearing your aligners for 20 - 22 hours every day.

Sanford Braces & Clear Aligners

Dr. Brian and Dr. Lynn bring extensive experience crafting personalized treatment plans for you. Our dedicated team will carefully consider your unique orthodontic needs, along with the specific contours of your teeth, movements of your lips, and the shape of your face.
