Invisalign & Braces
Our orthodontic treatments involve diagnosing, preventing, and treating conditions regarding misalignment in the teeth and jaws. This can include crowded teeth, crooked teeth, or a misaligned bite (an underbite or an overbite).
Good orthodontics can also prevent conditions like:
- Gum disease
- Tooth decay
- Chewing difficulty
- Chipped teeth
- Bone destruction

Dental braces are used to straighten and align your teeth. This not only improves the function of your teeth (e.g. biting and chewing) but gives you a beautiful smile too!
Many children and adolescents have braces, but more and more adults are opting for orthodontic braces too. Traditional braces consist of metal brackets attached to each tooth, with orthodontic wires connecting them.
We will adjust your braces every six weeks or so, gradually bringing your teeth into the correct alignment.
Invisalign is a new way of straightening teeth that doesn’t use brackets or wires. It looks similar to a small, clear gum guard. These aligners are removable, nearly invisible, and are custom made to fit snugly over your teeth. Each aligner is replaced every two weeks, gradually shifting your teeth until they are straight and aligned.
Invisalign is very comfortable to wear. It enables you to achieve a beautiful straight smile, without interrupting your daily lifestyle. You are able to remove them to eat, drink, brush, and floss. If you would feel self-conscious wearing traditional braces, then this might be the option for you.
Invisalign makes use of 3D computer imaging technology. We are able to show you your complete treatment plan. In other words, before you even begin, you can see a virtual image depicting what your teeth will look like at the end of the Invisalign treatment.
