When you hear the word “orthodontics” are you transported back to middle or high school? Orthodontic work isn’t strictly a teenage phenomenon (although many tooth and jaw problems are corrected in young adulthood.) Orthodontic care can happen at any age. Perhaps the stress of an unbalanced bite is causing neck, jaw and head pain. Tooth loss can cause shifts in alignment. Sometimes you just reach a point in maturity, where you want to be fully pleased with the look of your smile. There are , to help you obtain that healthy, pain-free and beautiful smile.

Traditional Braces

If the word “braces” brings to mind brackets and wires, you are probably thinking of traditional braces. These can be a powerful yet gentle agent in guiding teeth into proper position, even when substantial changes are necessary. We will devise a care plan that moves teeth into proper position, reducing or alleviating jaw stress and malocclusion, with an end result of an attractive, functional and captivating smile. Traditional braces require regularly scheduled office visits for adjustments.

Invisalign Invisible Braces

For adult patients, and older teenagers who can maintain a careful schedule of wearing, Invisalign can be an excellent orthodontic option. Using careful measurements, our office will provide you with custom-molded trays and a wearing schedule. The trays gently shift your teeth into their new positions, while worn as an almost-invisible part of your smile. Invisalign braces require periodic office visits, to make sure movement is progressing, and to check on your ongoing oral health.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces share many elements of traditional braces, but the brackets and wires are attached to the back of the teeth, for a more discreet aspect. The orthodontic principles are the same, and you will visit your dentist regularly for checkups and adjustments as you teeth progress to their corrected positions.
