Teeth-straightening solutions from the teenage years and beyond
There are a number of orthodontic treatments available for every kind of smile and for everyone in the family from adolescents to adults. As much as we love bringing out the best in your smile, orthodontic treatment is also great for improving your oral health. Misaligned teeth and a crooked bite can be difficult to clean properly, feel uncomfortable and even painful. With orthodontic treatment, we can resolve these issues in as little as 6 months.
- Overbite – when your upper teeth sit too far forward.
- Spacing – gaps or spaces between the teeth.
- Underbite – when your lower teeth sit too far forward.
- Crowding – when teeth are overlapping or impossible to floss.
- Crossbite – a bite that doesn’t mesh comfortably.
- Pain - Chronic headaches, jaw pain, or upper back and neck pain.
How do I know if I need orthodontics?
You might benefit from orthodontic treatment if you have experienced any of the following problems:
Orthodontic Treatment OptionsThere are many different treatment options available depending on your personal needs and your budget. Here are a few of the options that may be available:
When you hear the word braces, you most likely think of those bulky metal brackets with wires. Modern dental brackets are now smaller, less noticeable, and just as effective as the older bulkier ones. They’re easier to keep clean and much more comfortable.
If you’re looking for conventional brackets, we also offer clear brackets that tend to be more popular among our adult patients. These brackets are designed to combine conventional orthodontics with discretion. At a quick glance, no one will even realize you are wearing braces.
Clear aligners, such as Invisalign, have rapidly gained in popularity. A series of custom-made transparent trays gradually shift your teeth into their ideal position. They fit snuggly and precisely and can occasionally be removed to eat, to brush and floss like normal, and for the occasional special occasion like that big meeting or that special date.

to schedule an initial consultation & exam.
Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.
