Treatment Options                               

There are numerous non-invasive orthodontic treatments that an orthodontic specialist uses to correct the position of the teeth.  The two most common methods are with the use of orthodontic braces and retainers.  In most cases, both methods must be used as they work hand in hand.  However, there are some cases where only one method needs to be used.  Learn more about these orthodontic treatments below.

All orthodontic treatments work towards the same goals, creating a straight and beautiful smile for patients.  With the use of corrective appliances such as retainers, Invisalign, Invisalign Teen Invisalign Teen and braces, an orthodontic specialist is able to correct irregular bites and straighten teeth to their correct positions.  In the past, orthodontics was reserved more for younger patients since it was easier to correct the orthodontic problems in children and teenagers rather than adults.  Additionally, adults were discouraged by the appearance of braces.  Now, orthodontic treatment is right for anyone with healthy teeth. There are different orthodontic options that are suitable for patients of all ages.

We offer a variety of orthodontic treatment options which you will be able to browse to consider which treatment is the best option for your family or for yourself.  Some of the treatments we perform include traditional orthodontic treatments like braces, retainers, Invisalign, Invisalign Teen, dental facial orthopedics, and surgical orthodontics in some cases.  Read more about these orthodontic options in this section.

Not all orthodontic options may be right for you since some treatments can take longer than others to straighten the teeth or to align the bite correctly.  For this reason, it is important to know which options are available to you and to speak with an orthodontic specialist to find the course of action which is best suited to meet your orthodontic goals.
