Ceramic braces are clear and subsequently very popular with adult patients. Their only drawback is that the clear elastic ties which hold the wire in place can become discolored between visits.

What People Say

Positive experience

My daughter and I have always had a positive experience with Dr. Griffin. She and her staff have always been very polite. When my daughter was nervous about a certain procedure, she took the time to explain everything and was very reassuring.
