We Love Technology

We strive to use the most state-of-the-art technology to ensure you receive optimum results. Some of our latest innovative technologies we utilize include:

  • Invisalign®
  • Self-ligated Braces (Innovation® System)
  • Digital X-rays
  • iTero intraoral scanners at each location to reduce or eliminate impressions.
  • Fully computerized systems
  • Heat activated archwires
  • TADs (Temporary Anchorage Devices)
  • Email and text appointment reminder system

Prevention is Priceless

We recommend that a child receive their first orthodontic screening no later than age 8. Phase I interceptive treatment proves beneficial for preventing/correcting potentially severe problems such as:

  • Impactions, crossbites, underbites, overbites, crowding, spacing, etc.
  • Unfavorable tooth eruption
  • Unfavorable jaw growth
  • Protruding front teeth
  • Harmful thumb, tongue or breathing habits

Adult Orthodontic Specialists

It’s never too late to receive the smile you’ve always wanted. A surprising number of our patients are adults. Our orthodontists are highly skilled in treating adult orthodontic problems, ranging from the very minor to the very complex. We offer a full range of options including:

  • Invisalign® (clear aligners)
  • Fixed Aplliances (clear or metal braces)
  • Minor Corrections (limited orthodontics)
  • Orthognathic treatment (jaw surgery)
  • Alignment prior to restorative work with your dentist

Self-Ligated Braces

We offer Innovation® System braces providing the latest technology in braces:

  • Shorter appointments
  • Lighter forces
  • More comfortable
  • More hygienic
  • Faster tooth movement
  • Fewer appointments
  • Faster treatments
  • Improved results
  • Fewer headgears and expanders

Fixed Bonded Retainers

  • Most patients request retainers that are permanently bonded and hidden behind their teeth
  • We routinely use upper and lower bonded retainers on the majority of our patients
  • Our technique for upper bonded retainers has been perfected over the past 20 years and provides a reliable retainer not often found in many orthodontic practices
