Orthodontics for Adults & Children

Our orthodontists specialize in innovative treatments to align teeth in both children and adults. Our most common treatments include:

  • Adult Orthodontics (Advanced Treatment) - With adult orthodontics, you can finally get the beautiful smile that you have always wanted. We will work closely with you to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your individual needs and goals.
  • Clear or Metal Braces - Whether you’re looking for a more subtle look with clear braces or want the durability of metal braces, we have the perfect solution for you.
    • Clear braces are made of a see-through material that blends in with your natural tooth color, making them nearly invisible. They are a popular choice for adults and teenage patients who want to achieve straight teeth without drawing attention to their orthodontic treatment.
    • Metal braces are the most traditional type of braces and are made of high-grade stainless steel. They are strong and durable, making them an excellent choice for patients who need significant dental correction.
  • Invisalign®/clear aligner treatment - The Invisalign®/clear aligner treatment system uses a series of clear, customized, and removable aligners that are virtually invisible. They are specifically designed to shift your teeth into place gently and gradually. You'll wear each aligner for approximately two weeks until it's time to switch to the next one in the series. Typically, you're required to wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day, and you will need to see your orthodontist every 4-6 weeks for monitoring and adjustments.

Braces and orthodontic treatments are about much more than just straightening your teeth. Having more aligned teeth can improve both oral and systemic health in various ways:

  • Enhancing oral functioning
  • Stabilize your tooth positions
  • Enhance aesthetics and your smile
  • Improving long-term health of gums and teeth
  • Preventing excessive wear or trauma of the teeth
  • Closing Gaps Between Teeth
  • Straightening Crooked Teeth

Our dentists and orthodontists follow the American Association of Orthodontists recommendation that children should be screened for issues for the first time when upper and lower anterior permanent teeth erupt between 7-9 years old. Orthodontic treatment in most cases will likely begin when the majority or all of the permanent teeth erupt, usually between 10-12 years old.
