What Is Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontics consists of treatments that address malocclusions or bite misalignments. We offer the services to correct overbites, underbites, and crossbites. You can also rely on our team to straighten misaligned or gapped teeth. We welcome all ages and provide both Phase 1 and Phase 2 orthodontics.

Our compassionate team monitors your children's bite development to address any orthodontic needs as early as possible. Early detection helps us correct bite problems so jaws, teeth, and smiles develop correctly while we work to prevent any long-term issues.

  • Braces: Braces are an effective way to address a wide range of bite misalignments, regardless of whether they are mild, moderate, or severe. Traditional braces consist of metal wires and brackets that apply consistent pressure to guide teeth into their optimal position. We offer Phase 1 and Phase 2 braces so children and adults can make their dream smile a reality.
  • Appliances: Jaw development and alignment are an important part of your oral health because they impact bite patterns. We offer appliances that correct an array of orthodontic issues affecting both children and adults. Our team carefully evaluates your jaws, teeth, and gums before recommending an appliance that will meet your unique needs.
  • Invisalign® Clear Aligners: If you have mild to moderate bite misalignment issues, then our Invisalign clear trays may be the solution you're looking for. This treatment consists of clear, plastic trays that apply pinpoint pressure to gently shift your teeth into position. This process requires you to wear the custom trays for 22 hours each day. Due to the strict guidelines of the treatment, we only offer Invisalign clear aligners to responsible teens and adults.

Our Orthodontic Process

Our team believes that your smile and how you feel about it are important. That's why we make your comfort and confidence priorities every time you visit. We also emphasize taking the time to get to know you and fully understand your needs and smile goals. We begin with a thorough evaluation of your teeth, jaws, and gums to determine the current state of your oral health and the best next steps in your journey to a straight smile.

We will discuss the results of your exam and the various treatment options you qualify for. From there, our dedicated team will craft your custom orthodontic plan. When necessary, we may suggest mixing treatments, such as traditional braces and clear aligners, but you can trust we will only recommend treatments you need.

Family Orthodontics FAQs

Our team believes that you deserve answers. That is why we encourage you to ask questions and voice your concerns. We are happy to provide the information and resources you need to feel confident in your treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about orthodontics.

Do you offer orthodontics to children with special needs?

Yes. Our team welcomes children with special needs, and we offer the gentle orthodontic care and understanding needed to help them feel safe and comfortable.

There are many benefits to orthodontics. A straight smile is worth more than just its visual appeal because it also corrects your bite pattern, which means your teeth avoid uneven wear that leads to compromised teeth. When your teeth are evenly spaced, it also makes them easier to brush and floss, which helps prevent cavities and gum disease and boosts your overall oral health.

If you have traditional braces or certain appliances, you may need to avoid certain foods. We recommend avoiding sticky foods like gum and toffee and hard foods like certain nuts, ice, and hard candies. While it may be inconvenient, the change in diet is only for the duration of your treatment.
