We specialize in Orthodontics. Braces are used to assist in aligning and straightening teeth in order to not only improve appearance, but improve a person’s bite. Having braces isn’t just about improving your smile; it’s also about improving your overall dental health. Orthodontics may be used to correct malocclusion, overbite, underbites, cross bites, deep bites, crooked teeth and other flaws of the teeth and jaws. Braces may be used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to help with making corrections to a person’s bite.
Dental technology has improved over the years to include new options to help correct the above issues, and there are a number of techniques and products available that were not available just a few short years ago. The patient experience has improved and today’s options are less conspicuous than the full braces that were common in the past.
Traditional metal braces are still the most popular types of braces as they produce high quality results. Clear Ceramic braces are popular with adults and teenagers who want the results of braces without the look of metal. Your visit will begin with a consultation with the doctor to go over the best alternatives for your orthodontic care. The doctor will address any questions you may have regarding your treatment and will provide a plan for orthodontic therapy.
Types of Braces
Metal braces made from stainless steel brackets and wires remain the most popular choice for braces and are very effective.
Clear braces combine tieless braces with high technology arch wires that are clinically proven to move teeth quickly and comfortably. Clear braces combine the best of traditional clear braces and invisible aligners to deliver a discrete treatment experience with results that go beyond straight teeth.
Self-ligating brackets have some advantages over traditional metal braces. The primary difference is that they do not use elastics or metal ties to connect the arch wire to the brackets.

Lingual braces are a great solution for anyone who prefers not to have the braces visible. Lingual braces are placed behind your teeth so that you get the same effective tooth alignment to create a beautiful smile, without everyone realizing you have braces.
Clear aligner trays can be used for mild to moderate tooth movement in order to achieve the desired alignment, function and smile. Each aligner set is worn for approximately 2 weeks to guide the teeth into the desired position and alignment for the next in the series.
Invisalign® uses an advanced digital modeling system for the making of custom trays that will guide the patient’s teeth into a beautiful smile.
