Millions of people begin orthodontic care every year, and they do so for a number of reasons. Some want to close gaps between their teeth. Others want to straighten teeth that are not perfectly aligned. Many people want to fix overbites, underbites, and other bite issues. You may even want to address multiple problems at the same time. Whether you are looking at treatment for yourself or someone in your family, you can come to us for options:

  • Traditional Braces – People continue to use metal brackets and wires for a simple reason. This system works on practically any alignment issue you want to address, whether it is mild or severe.
  • Clear Ceramic Braces – For a less noticeable alternative, ceramic braces more closely match the color of your teeth. They can be just as effective as metal braces.
  • Clear Aligners – If you want your orthodontic care to be as discreet as possible, then you should talk to us about clear aligners. They are custom-made to fit your teeth at each step of your treatment. Caring for your smile while wearing them couldn’t be simpler, since they can be removed for meals and oral hygiene.
  • Short-Term Orthodontics – If you primary concern is improving the cosmetic appearance of your smile, we have solutions that can give you what you want in less time.
  • Preventive Orthodontics – For younger patients, getting a head start on treatment can reduce the need for braces or aligners when they are older.

You also may want to conclude your orthodontic care by getting other cosmetic services. Be ready to show off your straight smile with teeth whitening or veneers.

We understand that most people want a straight smile because they know it looks nicer. You may not realize that getting your teeth in line also has benefits for your oral health. When your teeth are not crooked or crowded and are evenly spaced, you are able to clean them more effectively with your daily brushing and flossing. Of course, you’ll want to continue to see us for regular dental cleanings.
