Types of Braces

Hildebrand Exclusive Mini Braces

At Hildebrand Orthodontics, we believe in offering only the newest, smallest braces that are more comfortable and give faster treatment results at the same cost as any other braces. Our mini metal braces are the most amazing thing since sliced bread! Old-fashioned traditional braces, which most orthodontists use, take much longer to treat cases. Dr. Jed decided to use only the latest technology in braces by offering mini braces to all his patients at no additional cost. Our mini braces are 50% smaller than traditional braces, which help speed up treatment times by six months!

Mini braces are more comfortable than traditional braces. Made of high-grade stainless steel, mini metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. Mini braces do not go around the tooth so you can avoid cavities and other dental problems associated with that type of braces. You also have the choice of choosing colored elastics for a more personalized look, or stick with the clear or silver ties that blend well with the mini fast braces and look amazing.


Self-Ligating Braces

Sometimes Dr. Jed will prescribe self-ligating braces, which are made from the same materials as traditional braces. However, self-ligating braces do not require the use of the color bands, which many people prefer. They are the same size as traditional metal braces, which are bulkier than the mini braces and could slow down treatment. 


Mini Clear (Ceramic) Braces

Dr. Jed now offers mini clear braces! They are provided at the same cost as metal mini braces and have the same treatment time frame. Mini fast clear braces work just like our metal mini braces with the benefit of being less noticeable and blending into the tooth color. Patients love that people do not recognize they have braces!

The great thing about clear braces is the teeth are moved into the correct position by Dr. Jed at each visit. This gives him greater flexibility in adjusting your treatment to achieve your ideal result in the prescribed treatment time. Most treatment with clear mini braces can be completed in just 18 months!

Clear Aligners (Invisalign®)

Clear aligners are perfect for patients who want the least noticeable product and don't mind taking the aligners in and out during the day. Clear aligners work great for moving teeth—the movements are predesigned on the computer to be safe and effective. Ideally, this treatment is for patients who need minor movements to achieve a perfect smile.

Since patients who choose clear aligner treatment often need less tooth movement, treatment times are short, nine to 18 months on average, with only a few in-office appointments to keep adults and children from missing school and work.


Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are hidden behind the teeth and are therefore “invisible” when you smile. They are not as effective as traditional braces and on rare occasions can be prescribed to patients.


Bonded Retainers

We offer all our patients the wonderful clear retainers that hold their teeth straight and help protect from grinding at night. Bonded retainers are offered at the end of treatment because Dr. Jed knows all the hard work and effort patients put into getting their teeth straight, and we want to keep them straight with the best possible retainer on the market.

Dr. Jed is proud to offer all his patients this unique new gold chain that is the best retainer on the market.

What Our Patients Are Saying

"Dr. Hildebrand and his entire staff are absolutely wonderful. They are all very patient and caring. Dr. Hildebrand is awesome at making the kids feel comfortable and at ease. I feel that his treatment plans are always very well explained and very affordable in price. I have recommended many of our friends and they too love his practice. I wouldn't go to anyone else."

— Kelly N.

"I really appreciate how friendly, positive, and kind everyone in the office is. Dr. Hildebrand and his staff took care of my kids very well, and I loved them so much I came back for me! They are always willing to take the time to explain anything, from the treatment to the financial side of things, which I greatly appreciate."

— Daniele

"This practice is a wonderful place, especially for teens/children. You can tell they go the extra mile to focus on young adults and in doing so help them to feel more at ease. My 14-year-old daughter (who does not enjoy dentist appointments) actually likes the atmosphere here and isn't nervous at all. Dr. Hildebrand and his staff just seem to have a way with their patients.."

— Kayleigh V.

"Everyone at the office is super cool. They're all so kind on the phone and in person. When I come in, it's like I'm their best friend that's been out of town for a while and they welcome me back! The service provided by Penny, Missy, and the others is awesome!!! They're always very personable and professional. Dr. H has a wonderful team, and they show it every visit!"
