Braces, Invisalign, and Spark Aligners

Dental technology is constantly evolving. At Rapid City Orthodontics, you’ll find the latest treatment options available.

Metal Braces & More

Metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment at Rapid City Orthodontics, but you have other options, too.

After your first free consultation with Dr. Hudson, you’ll hear more about which treatment would be right for you based on your smile goals and individual needs.

Removable Vs. Fixed Appliances

At Rapid City Orthodontics, we believe you should be educated on your treatment choices.
It’s important to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances. Fixed appliances, like braces, are attached to your teeth and aren’t taken off until you complete your treatment.
Removable appliances, like Invisalign’s aligner system and the other clear aligners systems we offer, are worn about 20-22 hours a day but can be taken off easily. Dr. Hudson uses clear aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems.
At Rapid City Orthodontics, we generally use fixed appliances for comprehensive and serious treatments.
