Clinton Township Orthodontics Treatment Options

Metal Braces

Braces in Clinton Township and Grosse Pointe Woods are an excellent choice for correcting complex tooth issues. Since they can work faster at aligning teeth and closing gaps than other treatments might, overall treatment time may be reduced.

Braces don’t require some of the more complex technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, meaning braces from Clinton Township and Grosse Pointe Woods are a cost-effective orthodontic option.

Traditional metal braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. They’re made of metal or ceramic brackets affixed to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics.

These brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply gentle pressure that will gradually move your teeth into the positions we want them to be in as long as you have regular adjustments with our doctors.

Clear Braces

Clear braces at Lifetime Orthodontics in Clinton Township and Grosse Pointe offer a discreet alternative to conventional metal braces. These ceramic brackets blend into the teeth, providing the same great results with an added level of discretion.

Clear braces work the same way as metal braces but without the metal. They offer a more cosmetic alternative, creating the same desired results without the visibility of traditional metal braces.

While people often think of metal braces for their strength and durability, ceramic braces are equally tough and effective. Concerns about staining have been resolved in recent years, and with regular elastic changes at every visit and good oral hygiene, you can enjoy your favorite beverages without worry.

Clear braces offer an aesthetic alternative that achieves the same great results as metal braces but with added discreetness.


Invisalign is a popular choice with patients and orthodontists in Clinton Township and Grosse Pointe Woods and is the top alternative to traditional braces.

Instead of metal brackets and bands, the Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth gradually.

Invisalign aligners are made of sleek plastic material and customized to fit comfortably over your teeth. To keep your teeth moving in the direction you want, you’ll need to switch your invisible trays out for the next one in the series every one to two weeks, as directed by Dr. Wesley.

The Invisalign system can only work if you follow the recommended guidelines. Aligners should be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. If you neglect to wear the aligners as directed by Dr. Wesley, this can impede the results and add time to the orthodontic process.

A free consultation with Dr. Wesley at Lifetime Orthodontics in Clinton Township and Grosse Pointe Woods will allow us to determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
