Orthodontic treatment is for both for children and adults. Whether you are seeing us for orthodontic treatment as a child or an adult, we have multiple treatment options that are comfortable, attractive, and customized to meet your needs.
INVISALIGN® OR CLEAR ALIGNERS
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you're wearing. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to the final position your doctor has prescribed. You'll visit our practice about once every eight weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Clear ceramic braces are an aesthetic alternative to traditional metal braces. Clear braces move your teeth in exactly the same way as metal braces do. Like metal braces, they are extremely comfortable to wear and very efficient in moving teeth.
Metal braces are the most common. They are made of high grade stainless steel. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces can slowly move teeth to a new desirable position. Today’s braces are much smaller, more comfortable, and generally less noticeable than in the past. Therefore, they are much more attractive. You can “dress up” your braces to fit your own personality. Most patients like to use different colored elastics that can be changed at each appointment. Also, your brackets (the part of the braces that hold the wire) can be metal or clear, depending on your preference.
