We offer the latest styles of traditional braces for both adults and children. This common fixed appliance consists of bands, brackets and wires that are regularly adjusted by our orthodontic team to gradually straighten teeth and move them into a proper position. We offer both bright color braces as well as clear.

Invisalign Clear Aligners
Want to know if you are a candidate for Invisalign without having to make an appointment to come in to one of our offices? Our orthodontists can conduct a virtual consultation and let you know whether or not Invisalign is right for you.
Our office also uses high tech scanners and the latest 3D technology, which can scan your teeth, and show you what your smile result will be before you even start the process, the same day as your exam! We also perform cosmetic dentistry in our offices if you are interested in whitening or veneers after your orthodontic treatment.

3M Clarity Aligners
3M Clarity Aligners have become popular in recent years. They are clear and designed to move teeth without the need for wires, brackets, bands, or braces. Our orthodontic team will develop a custom treatment plan and provide you with instructions on how to wear and care for your 3M Clarity Aligners during the treatment process.

Frequently Asked Questions
Aesthetics and function are the two good reasons to get orthodontic treatment. Having an attractive smile is something that everyone deserves. If you want your teeth to function better, let us improve your oral health to make it easier for you to clean your teeth.
Nobody is too old to start orthodontic treatment. However, it is recommended by the American Associate of Orthodontists to be evaluated by an orthodontist by the age of 7, as oral problems are easier to treat at earlier stages. This early intervention is not always needed, but prevention is the key when it comes to an array of orthodontic problems. Contact us today to schedule your complimentary orthodontic consultation.
It depends on your oral health issues. In fact, the treatment duration varies from person to person. In general, active treatment can take from just a few months to an average of 1-2 years. During our exam process, we will take detailed X-rays and a 3D scan of your teeth. We can show you what your result will be the same day as your exam!
- Meet with your doctor and get a sneak peek at your new smile. Using 3D scanners, our orthodontists can take a fast and precise digital scan of your teeth and map out a customized treatment plan just for you.
- Start wearing your aligners. We typically see patients every 8-10 weeks while in treatment, to check your progress on the way to your new smile.
This depends on the complexity of your case, but some smiles can be achieved in as little as 4-6 months. You’ll start seeing results, however, in just a few weeks!
