Clear Braces Dentist

Clear Braces

Clear ceramic braces are a type of braces popular in patients looking for more discreet orthodontics as they are less visible than traditional metal braces. Clear orthodontic braces are smaller and smooth, thus more comfortable than metal braces. The clear braces blend into the color of the teeth making them much less noticeable and almost invisible from a distance.

Surgical Orthodontics

Surgical Orthodontics

Many people don’t realize that problems such as bad bites, jaw bone abnormalities, or misaligned jaws can be corrected with orthognathic surgery. “Orthognathic” means to move the position of the jaws, improving your bite while optimizing your oral health and wellness. In general, Dr. Mergen recommends surgery as a last resort.
