Multiple Treatment Options for Your Needs
We provide traditional orthodontic braces and Invisalign® depending on the current state of your teeth and the specific recommendations of our specialist. Most patient concerns are cosmetic in nature, but we focus equally on both the cosmetic and functional aspects of your treatment to give your smile the greatest oral health improvements with the best aesthetic results.
Our orthodontic treatment options include:
Traditional orthodontic braces correct problems with the teeth by utilizing metal brackets that adhere to your teeth. A single wire connecting the brackets is periodically tightened to apply steady pressure to your teeth. Over time, your teeth will straighten and your jaw will align.
Invisalign® to discreetly straighten your teeth by wearing a series of clear aligners that are changed out typically every week. Each aligner is a slightly altered so teeth are gently shifted into place. Treatment plans are customized to each patient to ensure optimal results every time.
Maintain Dental Hygiene for Lasting Results
Appliances, brackets, and wires of traditional orthodontic braces can be damaged by certain foods. To avoid any delays during your treatment, refrain from eating foods that are hard, sticky, or chewy. When wearing your aligner during Invisalign orthodontic treatment, avoid eating foods and drinking beverages that are hot or easily stain teeth. Whether your best option is traditional braces or Invisalign, always remember to maintain proper dental hygiene by regularly brushing and flossing and visiting us to ensure your teeth and gums stay healthy during orthodontic treatment.
