Orthodontics

For most people, achieving a healthy, beautiful smile is the reason for choosing to receive orthodontic care. If you’re self-conscious about your smile, having braces will greatly improve the way you look and feel.

Once your treatment completed, you can smile with confidence and no doubt to show off! Our practice is dedicated to make sure that you receive the quality care you deserve. A result that you can never imagine.

How Orthodontic Treatment Works

Orthodontic appliances are made of metal, ceramic, or plastic. They may be removable or they may be brackets bonded to the teeth. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to the proper position.

Gone are the days when a metal band with a bracket was placed around each tooth. You can now choose from brackets that are clear or metallic, and in some cases, the color of your appliance. Wires are far less noticeable, and the latest materials are designed to move teeth faster with more comfort. Today, any age is a great age to wear braces!

Duration of Treatment

Depending on several factors, including age, treatment method, and how minor or severe your case is, treatment time varies and can last between one and three years. A big factor to a successful treatment is you, the patient! The more involved and diligent you are, the quicker and more efficient your treatment will be. For children, receiving interceptive, or early treatment, can also help provide a quicker treatment time later on in life.

Before beginning your orthodontic care, your doctor will discuss all of your options and provide an estimate for how long your full treatment may take. Please contact our practice to schedule an appointment and learn more about orthodontics and the treatments we provide.

We offer the following orthodontic solutions for both adults and children:

Invisalign

Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them when needed. Your aligners are engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time. Only Invisalign clear aligners are made of proprietary, multilayer SmartTrack® material to gently shift your teeth into place. Also, we offer Invisalign braces straighten teeth with custom clear trays that are virtually undetectable. They’re a great option for teens and adults who want to transform their smiles without metal wires.

Damon System

The Damon System is not just about revolutionary braces and wires, it’s a whole new way of treating patients. Traditional treatment often requires removal of healthy teeth and/or the use of palatal expanders to make space. This approach is often uncomfortable, takes longer, and can leave a narrower arch and a flat profile. Damon smiles are full, natural 10-tooth smiles achieved with light biologically-sensible forces, and are specifically designed to improve the overall facial result of each patient.

Metal Braces

Metal braces are traditional dental braces used for straightening teeth by using arch wires.
These braces are made from sturdy stainless steel, which is highly corrosion resistant.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are a cosmetically pleasing alternative to metal braces, using clear colored
brackets. Ceramic brackets are less noticeable, which makes smiling with confidence
possible. The brackets can be used for both children and adults.
