New advances in orthodontic technology continue to improve the comfort, precision and speed of orthodontic treatment. The new techniques and appliances we use are more comfortable, smaller, and are more aesthetic than ever before.
We offer several options for our patients including small traditional metal brackets and tooth-colored clear ceramic brackets that are barely noticeable. We use self-ligating brackets (3-M Smartclip and Damon) to allow for faster wire changes, shorter appointments, and often times longer periods of time between visits. These brackets are also easier to keep clean than traditional brackets that hold the wires in place with rubber bands that lose their elasticity over time or must be tied in with metal holders. Our space-age low force/high comfort wires provide gentler and more predictable tooth movement.
For many types of orthodontic problems, Invisalign (a series of clear aligners) is an even more esthetic method to accomplish our orthodontic goals. Our state-of-the-art office uses computerized digital imaging to assure that patients receive the the highest quality images with lowest possible x-ray exposure.
