Our office provides several choices for braces. While the conventional metal braces of today are more sleek and comfortable than braces of the past, some patients opt for ceramic braces or self-ligating braces since they are less noticeable. Our team can help you decide if metal braces, ceramic braces, or self-ligating braces are right for you!

Invisalign is a popular choice for clear aligner therapy due to its advanced treatment plans and comfortable clear aligners. Patients who want to wear clear aligners to achieve a straighter smile must wear their aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours per day, or anytime they are not eating or brushing their teeth. This allows the aligners to gently shift each tooth until they fit perfectly in the aligner, after which the patient can switch to the next aligner in the series. Invisalign is a great choice for patients who don’t want any food restrictions and don’t want to wear noticeable braces.
Early Phase Treatment
When most people think about orthodontic care, they picture teens or young adults wearing braces or clear aligners. However, early orthodontic treatment can be used to make your child’s future orthodontic work much more efficient and comfortable. Palatal expanders are used to widen a child’s upper jaw while it is still developing, which can help the teeth have more room to fit next to each other. Space maintainers help prevent crowding from occurring after a baby tooth is knocked out too early.

Once orthodontic treatment is complete, a retainer must be used to keep the teeth in their new, perfectly straight positions. Without a retainer, the teeth will begin to shift back to where they were originally, and if they are allowed to shift too much, a new orthodontic treatment plan will have to be created, and braces or clear aligners will have to be used to straighten them again. Whether you are about to get your braces off or you recently lost or damaged your retainer and need a new one, our team will be happy to assist!
Here are just a few of the smiles that our office has had the pleasure of working on.
