Methods for Mouths

Orthodontic treatment options.

Everyone is different, and every smile is unique. There is no “one-size-fits-all” treatment. We offer a variety of options to satisfy the individual treatment goals of each and every patient.

Invisalign®

Invisalign®

For those who want a more stealthy treatment, this popular, patented process uses custom-fit clear plastic aligners to guide and move teeth incrementally.

Invisalign Teen®

Invisalign Teen®

While the original Invisalign® process was designed for adults, Teen Invisalign® is designed specifically for teenagers who want to conceal their treatment.

Invisalign First®

Invisalign First®

For even younger patients, the Invisalign First® process is designed to offer early (phase 1) correction for mouths with a combination of baby and adult teeth.

Incognito Braces

Incognito Braces

These are metal braces that are affixed to the inner “tongue side” of the tooth, making them virtually imperceptible.

Clear Braces

Clear Braces

To make the treatment a bit less apparent, metal braces can be replaced with clear ceramic brackets.

Metal Braces

Metal Braces

The most basic form of orthodontic treatment, in which metal brackets affixed to the outer part of the teeth are connected by wire to guide teeth into place.

Interceptive Treatment

Interceptive Treatment

Although full treatment doesn’t start until all adult teeth emerge, it is recommended that children in need receive “Phase 1” interceptive treatment as early as 7 years of age.

Vivera® Retainers

Vivera® Retainers

Created by the makers of Invisalign®, Vivera® retainers are custom-formed to discreetly keep teeth aligned following treatment.

Orthodontics can be a family affair

Did you know that we have lots of parents that go through treatment with their kids, and bonus we have an awesome family courtesy when you do it together.

1. What is an orthodontist?

An orthodontist is a dentist with three years of advanced specialty training from an accredited orthodontic program.

2. Why should I choose an orthodontist specialist?

Simply, to get the best care possible. Orthodontic specialists have rigorous, focused training and provide ideal and professional results.

3. When should I begin orthodontic treatment?

Though an orthodontist can enhance a smile at any age, there is an optimal time period to begin treatment. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children have an initial evaluation by the age of seven because it is the optimal time to evaluate skeletal development and to identify the position of the permanent teeth.

4. Am I a candidate for orthodontic treatment?

You may be. The purpose of orthodontics is to eliminate malocclusions (improper bites) and the wide variety of problems they can cause. Malocclusions occur as the result of tooth and/or jaw misalignment. They may affect the way you smile, chew and clean your teeth – and even how you feel about your smile and appearance. More importantly, an improper bite may lead to periodontal (gum and bone) problems and/or tooth loss. Orthodontic treatment can improve your long-term dental and physical health. It may also eliminate the need for more extensive dental work later in life.

5. Am I too old to have orthodontic treatment?

Many patients think that orthodontic treatment is only for children, but over half of our patients are adults.  With healthy bone support, teeth can be successfully moved at any point in life. 

6. How much do braces cost?

The fee for orthodontic treatment varies depending on the severity of the problem and length and complexity of treatment. We are pleased to offer several payment options commensurate with individual needs.

7. Do braces hurt?

Typically, the patient is comfortable during treatment, but there is a short period immediately following the placement of your braces or after appliance activation when your teeth will be sensitive. The sensitivity during this adjustment period will only last a few days. Over-the-counter anti-inflamatory medication along with a soft diet is usually sufficient to relieve any discomfort.

8. Can I chew gum with my braces on?

No. Gum and sticky foods will put a continuous pull on the special bonding cement that attaches your braces to your teeth. Continual breakage of appliances slows down treatment.

9. Can I play sports with braces?

Yes. We recommend wearing a mouth guard for contact sports or other rough activities. Mouth guards are available at our office or if you would prefer, a custom mouth guard can be ordered.
