Braces have changed a great deal in the past 20 years, and Washington D.C. Orthodontist Dr. Nahid Maleki continues to be at the forefront of those changes that provide the best results in the shortest amount of time - and with the greatest comfort.
The braces that we offer can be either metal, tooth-colored porcelain or hidden behind the teeth depending on your preference; all types incorporate smoother surfaces and are engineered for faster adjustments at each visit. The latest archwires are engineered to provide gentle, consistent forces to the teeth so that we no longer "tighten" braces. While there may be some discomfort for a day or two after a wire change, a pain reliever that you would use for a headache will provide complete relief.
At your initial appointment you'll be able to check out all the options, and discuss what type of braces suit your lifestyle and look. If you prefer a removable, discreet solution, Dr. Maleki is also a provider of clear aligner treatment and is happy to discuss that option with you as well.
