Types of Braces
Many patients are treated with “Clear” braces. These braces are made of porcelain and are virtually invisible. Clear braces offer enhanced aesthetics and work just as efficiently as metal braces without being noticed.
Compared to aligners, braces can provide you with the ideal result in a fraction of the time, without the trouble of a lost aligner or constantly having to take the aligner in and out of your mouth to eat and brush.
Some patients prefer the look of regular braces due to the size and overall excellent appearance.
We use the highest quality clear braces on the market which virtually disappear on the teeth.
We offer perfectly clear aligners which provide outstanding smiles.

Fortunately our teenage patients can be treated with “clear choices” that eliminate the embarrassing look of “metal braces”. Most of our patients choose clear brackets because they are virtually invisible and provide an excellent result. “Clear” braces work just like metal braces without being noticed.
Patients needing alignment only sometimes choose clear aligners which move the teeth into position without using any braces.
Regardless of the problem our teen patients have “Clear Choices” that will make orthodontic treatment a great experience instead of an embarrassing one. Most importantly our teens continue to enjoy hanging out, dating, sports and school without having to cover their mouth while laughing and smiling.
You are never too old for braces!
Recent surveys show that adult patients make up over 25% of the average orthodontic practice. Advancements in technology now allows adults to get the smile they have always dreamed of…without having a “metal mouth.” The growing number of adult patients is directly related to the proven fact that a more pleasing smile can increase success in the business world and lead to a more satisfying and active lifestyle.
No More Metal!
Many adult orthodontic patients are treated with “Clear” braces. These braces are made of porcelain and are virtually invisible. Clear braces actually have many advantages over metal braces including enhanced aesthetics and reduced discomfort due to more gentle movement of the teeth. Recently, clear aligners and “Invisalign” have become popular due to mass marketing. These appliances are appropriate for some minor tooth movements, but they do not provide the control necessary for more detailed movements. These detailed movements are often needed for a “balanced bite”.
When is the Best Time?
The best time for orthodontic treatment is now! Regardless of how old you are, you can have the smile you have always dreamed of. Many adult patients comment, “I have taken care of the kids and now it’s my turn.” In fact, we routinely have patients in their 70’s choosing to begin orthodontic treatment. Improving your smile will be the best investment you have ever made!
Corrective Jaw Surgery
If your jaws don’t meet correctly and your teeth don’t seem to “fit” with your jaws, you may have a bite problem that makes eating difficult. Your face may appear “off balance,” and you may not be happy with the way you look. Your bones and teeth may have grown that way since childhood, or you may have injured your face. Whatever the reason, your teeth and facial bones can be repositioned to create a more balanced appearance with jaws that work in harmony with the joints, teeth, and muscles.
The first step in an orthognathic case is straightening your teeth with orthodontics then repositioning your jaws with corrective jaw surgery. Using this “team” approach, you will get the best possible result by working with the both the orthodontist and the oral surgeon. Your orthodontist will move your teeth into correct position for the bite you’ll have after corrective jaw surgery. Your oral surgeon will reshape your jaws and possibly other facial bones during surgery to form a better bite and a more pleasing appearance.
There is a common misconception that when the braces come off, the orthodontic treatment is finished. This could not be further from the truth! When your braces come off, we will begin the “retention stage” of your treatment. Once the teeth are in their final positions, it will take effort to keep them there, because the natural tendency is for the teeth to shift or drift back to their starting points. The retainers will hold the teeth in their corrected positions while the gums and bone structure adjust to their new positions. Retainer wear is critical to long term stability!
Facial pain and headaches are often associated with bite problems. The first step in our treatment approach is to alleviate pain using very conservative measures such as wearing a splint to stabilize the bite along with physical therapy and exercise. Once pain free we will determine what is needed to maintain the overall improvement.
Jaw position can restrict the airway and contribute to snoring and sleep apnea. Following a complete diagnostic evaluation we can determine if changes to jaw position and the bite will improve the airway and relieve symptoms.
