Orthodontics

Today, orthodontic treatment is simple, convenient and affordable for patients of all ages. And an attractive smile is just one of the benefits. Orthodontic treatment results in correctly aligned teeth that provide ideal jaw function and a great smile! Additionally, your teeth are easier to clean and more resistant to gum disease. Perhaps most importantly, orthodontic treatment provides improved self-confidence.

Cosmetic improvements are also on the forefront of advances in orthodontics. Popular choices of our patients are ceramic braces, a translucent material that camouflages the brackets on your teeth. Today, brackets are smaller, more comfortable and more durable than older-style braces. The smaller brackets bond directly to the teeth. If you are looking for braces without the “metal-mouth” appearance, you may want to consider clear ceramic braces.

We offer the following innovative orthodontic treatment:

Invisalign®

The latest in invisible braces is Invisalign®. Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligners created from sophisticated 3-D computer imaging technology. They are comfortable, removable and invisible! Invisalign is a popular choice for adults who are ultimately concerned about the appearance of braces during normal daily activities. Invisalign can offer the flexibility of choosing to wear your braces at more convenient times of the day.

6 Month Smiles®

Six Month Smiles® are clear, ceramic braces which are aesthetically pleasing to those who are worried about wearing embarrassing metal braces. Not only are the brackets clear, but Six Month Smiles also uses tooth-colored wires, too! These braces are barely noticeable to others.

Six Month Smiles are revolutionary. The tooth-colored, nickel titanium wires provide the low force needed to move teeth. This teeth-straightening system focuses on moving the teeth that are visible when you smile and not correcting your bite pattern. This goal and the innovative materials used allow for the average treatment time to last only six months!
