Traditional Braces

Moving teeth into alignment is made easy for both teens and adults with the help of traditional braces. Consisting of a metal bracket-and-wire system, teeth begin to shift in the appropriate direction thanks to the continuous pressure created by wire tightening. Patients are required to maintain regular follow-up appointments with our team to ensure progress, with the wire being replaced and/or tightened each time until results are achieved after 2-3 years.

Invisalign Clear Aligners

As an alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign uses custom-made, clear plastic aligners to fit a patient’s teeth as they progress through treatment. While each individual’s case is different, the average timeline for completion is 12-18 months thanks to the continuous, gentle pressure placed on teeth. Individuals are required to wear the trays 20-22 hours each day before switching them out for a new set every 1-2 weeks. Invisalign is typically recommended for mature teens and adults who have minor cases of overcrowding, gapped teeth, or bite misalignment.
