Invisalign

We are proud to offer Invisalign®, the clear alternative to braces. The treatment consists of a series of clear, removable aligners that are changed every two weeks. Manufactured from a precision computer-based model devised by us, each new aligner gradually shifts your teeth into place.

Given the clear and custom-made nature of the aligners, they are nearly invisible. Nobody will know you are undergoing orthodontic treatment, unlike with traditional options. The aligners are also removable for eating, drinking, and special occasions. 

Invisalign is an extremely effective treatment option. Please contact us to schedule a consultation so that we can evaluate whether or not you are a good candidate for the Invisalign system.

Orthodontics for Children

Getting an early start on your child's orthodontic treatment is important. Although there is not a universal best age to start orthodontic treatment, the American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children should first visit an orthodontist by age 7. Early examination allows the orthodontist to detect and evaluate problems so the appropriate time for treatment can be determined. There are times that preventive or interceptive care can guide the jaws and erupting teeth into more favorable positions, improve the growth and alignment of jaws, and preserve space for the permanent teeth. Warning signs of orthodontic problems that can be detected from a child’s bite include:

  • The upper teeth protrude
  • The upper teeth cover too much of the lower teeth
  • The upper teeth fit behind the lower teeth
  • The front teeth do not meet when the back teeth are together
  • The teeth are crowded or overlapped
  • There are noticeably large gaps between teeth
  • The line between the two upper front teeth and the two lower front teeth do not line up properly

After we gather important information-which may include a comprehensive clinical exam, models, x-rays, and facial photographs-we can best determine your orthodontic needs and treatment plan. For young patients, early interceptive orthodontic therapy can minimize the need for more complex orthodontic treatment in the future.

Orthodontics for Adults

No matter what your age, your appearance is an important aspect of your life. If you are unhappy with your smile or have crooked teeth, it is never too late to begin orthodontic treatment. In fact, almost 25 percent of our patients are adults. In addition to enhancing their smiles, many adults seek orthodontic treatment to improve the function of their bite. Orthodontic treatment can provide you with a more attractive smile and can also improve your oral health. People of all ages begin orthodontic treatment for healthier teeth and gums, as well as to receive the full benefit of teeth that are in proper alignment. Adult orthodontics can vastly change your appearance, whether the problem is an uneven profile, crowded teeth or a poor self-image.

Several options are available to patients concerned about the appearance of braces. For all of our patients, we offer mini stainless steel braces and clear braces. We are also pleased to offer the new Invisalign System.
