Types of Treatment

Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.

Esthetic Braces

Esthetic ( tooth colored ) braces are made of translucent ( clear ) material. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal.

Customized Clear Aligners

Customized clear aligners straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, removable aligners. It's virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you're straightening your teeth.

Intraoral Scanner

Using a digital intraoral scanner, we will take three-dimensional (3D) digital images, or impressions, of your teeth and bite. These scans are then used in our in-office lab where we custom-fabricate a model of your teeth. The digital impressions and the model will help us formulate a personalized treatment plan that meets your specific orthodontic needs and desires. We can also use them to visually show you your treatment options and help us keep you up-to-date on your treatment progress.

Forsus Appliance

The Forsus appliance is used in order to help move the upper molars back while moving the lower arch forward. Composed of a spring coil rod, the appliance is used while a patient is currently wearing braces. It connects the upper molar band to the lower archwire to improve the fit of the teeth.
