Orthodontic Treatment

Custom-Designed Orthodontic Options

Straightening crooked teeth is an important part of dental health care for many patients. If your teeth aren’t aligned properly, they can negatively impact everything from your smile’s appearance to your bite’s function, your long-term oral health, and more. To help make your treatment more comfortable and convenient, we offer a number of different options besides traditional braces, including discreet clear aligners and faster, more esthetic braces.

Invisalign® Clear Aligners

Invisalign® is one of the more popular forms of clear aligners, which are made from clear, biocompatible acrylic rather than metal (like braces). The aligners are designed to fit snugly over your teeth and guide crooked ones into straighter positions. Every aligners in the series is designed to move teeth to a certain degree, and once the last aligner has completed its work, your teeth and smile will be straighter and more esthetically pleasing. The aligners remain nearly invisible while in place, and you can remove them to eat, brush your teeth, and floss without worrying about braces.

Red White & Blue® Clear Aligners

Red White and Blue® (RWB) aligners are also clear and made from biocompatible acrylic, but are designed to focus more on the esthetic aspects of your smile than Invisalign®. If your teeth are only slightly out of alignment and your condition is more cosmetic, then RWB can help correct it faster and more affordably than many other orthodontic options.

Six Month Smiles®

Six Month Smiles® consist of brackets and wires similar to traditional orthodontic braces, thought they’re specially designed to realign teeth faster than conventional treatment. The brackets and wires are clear, rather than metal, and are designed to focus mainly on the cosmetic aspects of your smile. This allows them to straighten smiles in as little as six months, compared to the 18-24 months that traditional braces often take.
