Types of Braces

Traditional Metal Brackets

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and the metal brackets today are much smaller and more comfortable than in the past.

Clear/Ceramic Brackets

Clear braces are made of a ceramic or porcelain material that is translucent making the braces appear less visible. More common with adults.


Clear, comfortable removable aligners that are used to align your teeth. Although not for everyone, Dr. Hess will determine if Invisalign® is right for you.

Types of Treatment

Braces for Children & Teens

The most common age for children to start orthodontic treatment is around the age of 10 to 12 years of age.

Early/Interceptive Treatment

Early treatment is sometimes recommended as a preventative measure in growing children.

Braces for Adults

Braces can improve your quality of life dramatically by not only increasing your self-esteem but also your teeth!

Orthognathic Surgery

Sometimes braces are not enough. Jaw surgery is used to correct abnormalities of the bones of the face and jaws.

Patient Reviews

Serving patients in Zachary and Baton Rouge Louisiana

Zachary Orthodontics was a great experience, the entire staff and Dr. Hess are friendly and very caring toward their patients. I love how they don't talk over the kids to the parents but include the kids in the conversation. Dr. Hess answered NBTs questions clearly and in a kid-friendly way! Thanks!
