Types of Appliances

In Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake and Virginia’s eastern shore, and nearby cities, Drs. Savage, Sabol & Visser provide orthodontic treatment using the most advanced types of appliances on adults, teens and children to correct issues such as crooked teeth and jaw misalignment and create a bright smile.

Invisalign® (Clear Aligners)


The Invisalign System is a series of clear overlay trays that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. Drs. Savage, Sabol & Visser are Invisalign Certified Orthodontists and have been Premier Providers since 2000.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are a translucent tooth colored (clear) material. They are very popular with both children and adults. They are difficult to see on the teeth unless you are very close to the patient.

Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most common type of braces. They are made of high grade stainless steel. Today’s braces are much smaller and more comfortable. Patients enjoy changing colors at each visit.

Retainers

Some minor orthodontic problems can be corrected with retainers. Retainers can be used on the upper and/or lower teeth.

Drs. Savage, Sabol & Visser treat mild to severe orthodontic issues using state-of-the-art types of appliances customized for each patient’s plan.
