Traditional metal braces are the most common type, and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, they straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.
Invisalign® uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth. The aligners are comfortable and contain no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.
Invisalign® clear aligners can treat a wide range of teeth-straightening conditions, including crossbites, crowding, open bites, gapped teeth, overbites, and underbites.
A retainer is a custom-made, removable or fixed appliance that helps teeth maintain their new position after braces have been removed. The use of a retainer is a very important part of post-braces care.
Retainers For Life Program
We love it here! My 14-year-old daughter has been going here for a year now. It was recommended to us by a friend. They have a system set up, where you’re in and out quickly. The ortho[dontist] takes a thorough look at the patients teeth to see how they are progressing and changes are made if needed. My daughters smile is beautiful! I wish I would have went here!
