Invisible Braces

Traditional Orthodontics

Traditional orthodontics solves most alignment issues to achieve a comfortable and more attractive smile, including:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Protruding teeth
  • Crossbite
  • Irregular spacing
  • Overcrowding

We also offer early orthodontics for kids.

Two-phase treatment with early childhood braces or space maintainers can eliminate the need for extractions due to overcrowding because it addresses the issue during development. Early childhood orthodontics also shortens or eliminates the need for lengthy orthodontic treatment in the future.

Invisible Braces with Invisalign and ClearCorrect

Many older teen and adult patients prefer a discreet treatment alternative to brackets and wires. Both Invisalign and ClearCorrect use nearly invisible clear aligner trays to apply gentle pressure to teeth in order to achieve ideal alignment.

Aligner trays come in a series with each bringing you closer to your ideal smile. Wearing the aligners for most of the day (around 22 hours) will give you the best results. 

You can remove your aligners to eat and clean your teeth, making them exceptionally convenient.
