Creating Straighter Smiles with a Range of Orthodontic Services

While many children benefit from braces, adults can also achieve straighter, healthier smiles with orthodontic treatment. If you have crooked, crowded, or misaligned teeth, modern orthodontics can correct the position of your teeth and give you a more sophisticated smile.

We treat children and adults with many types of orthodontic appliances, including Invisalign and Six Months. After a complete exam, we will determine whether you need traditional braces or another orthodontic appliance to correct your teeth position and bite.

Invisalign

Do you want straighter teeth without the hassle and adolescent look of metal braces? Ask us about Invisalign. This revolutionary system uses clear, custom aligners to correct the position of your teeth

We’ll use a 3-D computer imaging system to generate your detailed treatment plan and then send it to an Invisalign lab. Once you have your treatment kit, you’ll wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before moving to the next in your series. Your total treatment time should last about 12 to 18 months.

Although you’ll need to wear the aligners consistently to reposition your teeth, you can remove them when you eat, brush your teeth, or attend a special event. Occasional check-in appointments will ensure proper progression of your Invisalign therapy.

Six Month Smiles

In addition to offering Invisalign, we also offer Six Month Smiles. This service combines proven orthodontic techniques with modern materials and innovative thought. It uses nearly invisible braces to gently straighten teeth over a period of just six months. Your treatment will be over before you even know it!
