Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen®
Imagine a braces treatment that doesn’t use wires or metal brackets; a treatment that doesn’t require you to change your current lifestyle. With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth and experience the benefits of a great smile without having to deal with a mouth full of metal! Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable, comfortable aligners that straighten teeth in less time than traditional braces. Our office also utilizes iTero scanners. With these scanners, we can avoid messy impressions!
Do you need braces, but don’t like the idea of having huge metal brackets and wires on your teeth for such a long time? With In-Ovation braces, you now have an alternative to those traditional metal braces you’re dreading! In-Ovation braces are a new, technologically advanced system that gives you a straight, healthy smile faster, and with fewer office visits. In-Ovation braces are smaller and provide greater comfort, and use less force than with other braces.
Orthodontic treatment no longer means having a mouth full of unsightly metal wires and brackets. Clarity self-ligating braces are an aesthetic alternative to traditional metal braces. They are clear, small in size, and customized to fit your teeth and mouth. Clarity braces are safe and effective, and a great option for patients of all ages.
Many patients wonder what it means when their orthodontist specializes in dentofacial orthopedics. This specialization means that we have training and experience in working with the management of tooth movement (orthodontics) as well as the guidance of facial growth and development (dentofacial orthopedics), which usually occurs during childhood.
Temporomandibular disorder is a condition in which the joints in your jaw become sore and movement is restricted. Millions of Americans suffer from chronic face and neck pains as well as recurring headaches. These can all be signs of a TMD/TMJ condition that may require treatment.
Orthodontics is designed to reposition and straighten teeth, but surgical orthodontics may be needed in some cases to correct more severe jaw irregularities. Surgical orthodontics is used to straighten the jaw into alignment, which often improves a patient’s ability to chew, speak, and breathe. Braces are often worn in conjunction with orthodontic surgery to make sure the teeth stay in the proper position as well.
