Early intervention orthodontics—this is orthodontic treatment that is used to help pediatric patients. The goal of early intervention ortho can help young patients avoid dental misalignment and oral health issues down the road.

Bite improvement—if your top and bottom jaws do not fit together in a balanced and comfortable way, orthodontic treatment may be able to help you. Aligners and expanders are used to bring the patient’s teeth into healthy alignment; this type of treatment corrects overbites, underbites, crossbites, and poorly aligned molars. Improving you bite alignment may minimizes your risk of suffering of TMJ dysfunction down the road.

Invisalign—if you have been avoiding orthodontic treatment because you don’t want to deal with metal brackets and wires, Invisalign may be the perfect solution for you. This innovative treatment uses clear plastic aligners to move teeth into alignment—throughout the treatment process you’ll actually wear a pre-planned series of aligners; each one moves your teeth a little more. Invisalign is versatile and effective; our office uses this to close gaps between teeth, straighten crooked smiles, and even address bite issues.
