Orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics is the formal name of the dental specialty concerned with the diagnosis, prevention, interception, guidance and correction of bad bites.
If your teeth are crowded, protrusive (sticking out), spaced too far apart, meet in an abnormal way, or do not meet at all, correction may be recommended. Braces and aligners are the “appliances” dentists and orthodontists most commonly use to guide your teeth into their proper positions. Once completed, retainers preserve and stabilize the results of your orthodontic treatment.
Clear Aligners / Invisalign
Our office provides Invisalign orthodontic clear aligners for our patients to correct their misaligned dentition. We feel this is the best option for mild to moderate correction and helps to facilitate patient compliance and success through minimal aesthetic difficulty. Patients are provided with a free consultation to determine their need and case completion timeline. Within 3 weeks we can give a comprehensive preview of how your teeth will be moved and what they will look like when your case is completed. Most cases can be completed within 1-1.5 years.
