We believe in interceptive orthodontics for children. At every recall appointment, a child’s teeth and occlusion is evaluated. Minor orthodontics is treated at the office along with invisalign, the clear braces. We correct the following malocclusions:
- constricted arch – with a palatal expander
- cross bites – with Hawley appliances and finger springs
- vaulted palates from thumb sucking
If you have crooked or misaligned teeth, but don’t want to deal with the hassles of conventional braces, Invisalign® is the answer. This simple and effective orthodontic treatment option will give you the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. Invisalign® makes use of a series of clear, removable, customized dental forms that fit comfortably in a patient's mouth. The virtually invisible dental aligners are each worn for about two weeks and can be removed to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Invisalign® generally requires 18 to 30 aligners throughout the entire treatment process, each of which is progressively modified to straighten your teeth little by little over a period of nine to fifteen months. Appointments will be made every four to six weeks to monitor your progress and ensure proper treatment.
