Conventional Metal Braces
Braces are an intricate set of brackets and wires that push your teeth into their ideal positions over time. Traditional braces are a great solution for patients dealing with moderate to more complex alignment, crowding, and spacing issues. Now, thanks to advances in the dental field, braces are more comfortable and subtle than ever before! You can choose traditional silver or tooth-colored brackets for a discreet appearance.
Invisalign® Aligner Therapy
If you’re looking to straighten your teeth but don’t want to go the traditional route, we also offer Invisalign® for teens and adults. Invisalign clear aligners offer a comfortable, nearly invisible solution for correcting mild to moderate misalignment.
What Is Invisalign®?
It’s a series of custom, clear aligners that you wear. Invisalign® treatment is the process of wearing a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. No brackets and wires, and none of the restrictions that come with metal braces. Invisalign® is often recommended for mild to moderate cases.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
The aligners are switched out every two weeks and use gentle force to change the positioning of your teeth. Since the aligners are removable, you can eat, brush, and floss with ease.
How Long Will Invisalign® Treatment Take?
Depending on the complexity of your case, you could complete your treatment in as little as 6 months.2 but you’ll start seeing results in a matter of weeks.
How Much Does Invisalign® Cost?
the cost of Invisalign® treatment is similar to braces, but that’s where the similarity ends. Invisalign® clear aligners are removable and virtually invisible, so you can keep living your life and caring for your teeth throughout treatment the same way you always have. “
What is phase 1 treatment?
Phase 1 treatment is all about intercepting moderate to severe orthodontic problems early on to get ahead of the issue, reduce it, or eliminate it altogether. With phase 1 treatment, we can help get our younger patients’ oral health on track and curb any potentially complex and costly orthodontic issues that may occur down the road.
