See What Treatments Dr. Metz Would Recommend For You

During your , Dr. Metz will examine your teeth, jaw and bite. He’ll explain his findings, your options and his recommendations.

He may recommend one of three styles of braces to meet your treatment and lifestyle needs. Or, patients looking for a clear alternative to braces should ask Dr. Metz about ®, which is offered for teens and adults. In 2017, Dr. Metz was named an Elite Provider of , based on the number of successful cases he completed. In addition, our practice is the only in the area to offer the iTero® scanner, a technological advance that increases patient comfort and provides more comfortable, better fitting aligners. The iTero Outcome Simulator will help visualize how your teeth may look at the end of treatment.

Traditional Braces
Our traditional Metal Twin brackets from American Orthodontics feature a low profile for increased comfort. The outer edges of the tie wings are rounded and smoothed to make life with braces easier. The best part is you will get to choose the colors that tie the wire to the bracket to match your unique style!
Self-Ligation Braces
Dr. Metz also offers the American Orthodontics Empower® braces. These braces have a sliding door that eliminates the need for a colored tie around the bracket. This helps the wire slide more efficiently, creating less friction and allowing for more time between your adjustment appointments. These braces are ideal for certain patients, ask Dr. Metz if they are right for you!
Ceramic Self-Ligation Braces
The ceramic option of the Empower bracket, called Empower® Clear, provides the same advantages as the metal Empower Self-Ligating Braces, but with a more aesthetic look. The sliding door eliminates the need for clear ties that discolor over time. Empower Clear is a great option for the patient interested in a near invisible look.
with iTero®
is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth, using a series of clear, removable aligners instead of metal wires or brackets. You wear each set of clear aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position prescribed by your orthodontist. Your appointments with Dr. Metz will be approximately once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. In 2013 our office invested in the iTero, a digital scanner that creates a more precise portrait of the patient’s teeth than traditional impressions. This results in better-fitting aligners.
Multi Loop Orthodontics
The Multi-loop Edgewise Archwire (MEAW) technique is a very intricate, complex and non-surgical method for treating patients that would normally require surgical realignment of the jaws. This technique utilizes braces, custom-formed loop archwires, and elastics to guide the teeth into the correct positions.

There are very few orthodontists trained in the MEAW technique and offering it as a treatment option to their patients. Dr. Metz received his training in the technique at the University of Florida, where he learned the intricacies of custom-fitted loop archwires. He is proud to provide this cutting-edge technology to provide patients with a comfortable, non-invasive alternative to painful jaw surgery.
Two Phase Orthodontics
Orthodontic treatment can begin for some children (age 7-9) even before all of the permanent teeth have erupted. This benefits children who may need treatment for jaw growth, crowding or correction of harmful habits. A complimentary consultation with Dr. Metz will determine if Two Phase Orthodontics is needed to accomplish the ideal healthy, functional, aesthetic result that will remain stable for a lifetime.
