Metal Braces & More

Most patients we treat at Brace-Asaurus choose traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth.

Metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment at our office in Hamden, but you have other options, too.

After your free initial consultation, Dr. Desai will talk to you about which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.

Fixed Appliances Vs. Removable Appliances

At Brace-Asaurus, we believe you should be fully educated when it comes to your treatment. It’s helpful for patients in Hamden and our surrounding communities, to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances.

When Dr. Desai attaches fixed appliances, like braces, to your teeth, we won’t take them off until you complete your treatment.

Removable appliances, like the Invisalign or Spark clear aligner systems, are worn about 20-22 hours a day but can be taken off easily.

Besides the obvious differences, Brace-Asaurus uses Invisalign aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems. Dr. Desai generally uses fixed appliances for comprehensive and serious and treatment.
