Our office is proud to offer as a service to our patients Invisalign and traditional orthodontic care.

For most people, achieving a healthy, beautiful smile is the reason for seeking braces. If you're self-conscious about your smile, correcting your concerns with braces will greatly improve the way you look and feel.
Today, orthodontic treatment is simple, convenient, and affordable for patients of all ages. Why orthodontics? Because orthodontic treatment results in correctly aligned teeth that provide ideal jaw function and a great smile! Your teeth may also end up easier to clean and more resistant to gum disease. Our goal is to help you achieve the natural and beautiful smile you deserve. Our team will work closely with you to develop a treatment plan that is best suited for your lifestyle and orthodontic needs.

What are some possible benefits of orthodontics?

  • A more attractive smile
  • Reduced appearance-consciousness during critical development years
  • Better function of the teeth
  • Possible increase in self-confidence
  • Increased ability to clean the teeth
  • Improved force distribution and wear patterns of the teeth
  • Better long term health of teeth and gums
  • Guide permanent teeth into more favorable positions
  • Reduce the risk of injury to protruded front teeth
  • Aids in optimizing other dental treatment

What are some signs that braces may be needed?

  • Upper front teeth protrude excessively over the lower teeth (buck teeth)
  • Upper front teeth cover the majority of the lower teeth when biting together (deep bite)
  • Upper front teeth are behind or inside the lower front teeth (underbite)
  • Upper and lower front teeth do not touch when biting together (open bite)
  • Crowded or overlapped teeth. The center of the upper and lower teeth do not line up.
  • Finger or thumb sucking habits which continue after 6 or 7 years old
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Teeth wearing unevenly or excessively
  • Lower jaw shifts to one side or the other when biting together
  • Spaces between the teeth
We understand the apprehension some adults and children may have toward getting braces. Before beginning your orthodontic care, we will discuss all of your options and provide an estimate for how long your full treatment may take.
When your treatment is complete, you will have the smile you've always dreamed of and the confidence to show it off! We want you to feel comfortable and confident throughout your entire orthodontic experience, and our practice is dedicated to making sure that you receive the quality care you deserve.

Traditional Braces

Our traditional braces consist of metal brackets bonded to the teeth. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to the proper position. The placement of bands and brackets on your teeth does not hurt. Once your braces are placed and connected with the archwires you may feel some soreness of your teeth for one to four days. Your lips and cheeks may need one to two weeks to get used to the braces on your teeth. They should not interfere with playing sports or musical instruments. Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age. Everyone wants a beautiful and healthy smile. We are pleased to treat patients both young and old with braces. Twenty to twenty five percent of orthodontic patients today are adults.
Treatment time varies and can last between one and three years, depending on several factors including age, growth rate, and the severity of the correction necessary. A big factor in a successful treatment is you! Maintaining good oral hygiene and keeping regular appointments are important in keeping treatment time on schedule.

We can use short-term orthodontics to provide fabulous smiles faster than with traditional braces. How can Six Month Smiles create straighter smiles so quickly? By focusing only on teeth that show when a person smiles, an aesthetic result can be achieved faster.
Six Month Smiles is designed specifically for adults and older teenagers without major bite issues who have crooked, crowded, or unevenly spaced teeth. These quick braces work by targeting the appearance of your smile, not more complex issues like bite and jaw alignment.

The advantages over traditional orthodontic treatment are:

  • Unlike traditional braces people must wear for years, this procedure straightens teeth in an average of just 6 months and uses low force to move teeth comfortably. A faster result with quick braces does not mean extra pain!
  • Also, six month braces use clear braces and tooth colored, nickel-titanium wires--making them virtually invisible. quick braces are both efficient and discreet.
The Six Month Smiles process requires fewer dental visits and is typically less costly. If you have any questions about the quick braces process with call our dental office.
