As a type of dentistry focused on correcting the alignment of the teeth and jaw, orthodontics includes several treatment options and usually begins in early childhood, though most orthodontic treatments can happen at any age, including the adult years. Orthodontics can be used to correct:

  • Uneven teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Open bites
  • Crossbites

Modern orthodontic techniques allow our dentist to provide effective treatment quickly and comfortably for a straight and beautiful smile. Some of the most common orthodontic treatments include:

  • Traditional braces
  • Clear braces
  • Lingual braces
  • Clear aligners

Our dentist will consult with you during your initial orthodontic appointment to match the correct treatment to your needs.

Generally, orthodontic treatments are used to improve the utility of the mouth for increased dental health. Properly aligned teeth are less prone to dental decay and gum disease and also make it easier to talk and chew more comfortably. However, orthodontic teeth straightening treatments also provide cosmetic benefits, such as a more uniform and aesthetically pleasing smile.

FAQs

Here are answers to the most popular questions we get from patients interested in straightening their teeth:

How will Invisalign treatment straighten my teeth?

Your Invisalign Doctor will create a unique, digital treatment plan that maps out the exact movements of your teeth. Your Invisalign clear aligners are then designed to apply the right amount of force to the right place at the right time based on your plan. Your Invisalign doctor will be with you every step of the way to monitor your progress and ensure your aligners fit correctly.

What are Invisalign clear aligners made of and what do they look like?

Invisalign clear aligners are made of flexible plastic — specifically, a patented thermoplastic material called SmartTrack created exclusively for Invisalign Treatment.

Is Invisalign Treatment painful?

Invisalign Treatment moves your teeth by applying gentle, constant force, but some people do feel temporary discomfort for the first few days of wearing a new set of aligners. Typically, people describe it as feeling “pressure” and it’s normal — it’s a sign your Invisalign clear aligners are working and transforming your smile.

Please see your Invisalign Doctor if you have any concerns or experience continued discomfort.

Could Invisalign Treatment be right for me?

Invisalign Treatment can be a great solution for both adults and teens looking for a virtually invisible method to improve their smile. Our innovations and technological advancements make it possible to fix nearly all common teeth-straightening and bite issues, from simple to complex — all without interrupting your busy life.

What are the primary benefits of Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible — people may not even notice you’re wearing them. You can remove them to eat and drink, to brush and floss, or for special occasions. There are no metal brackets or wires that could irritate your mouth or break.
