How Orthodontics Work

Whether we are treating a child, teenager or adult, the goal of orthodontic treatment is the same – to straighten teeth so they work better and look better. 

We achieve this goal using braces or clear aligners to apply gentle pressure on your teeth, so they gradually shift into the correct position over a period of months or years. 

Traditional Braces

Made of either ceramic or metal, traditional braces have been a go-to solution for decades for people hoping to straighten their teeth. Recent advances in orthodontic treatment have brought us braces which are easier to care for, more comfortable, and lower profile.

How Braces Straighten Teeth

Over a specified period of time, braces apply continuous pressure to the teeth, slowly moving them into their new, corrected positions. 

As pressure is applied and the teeth move, the bone changes shape to accommodate the teeth's new positions. 

Invisalign Clear Aligners

Invisalign clear aligners help to gradually straighten your smile using a series of individually customized, clear plastic aligners which are adjusted over time. 

With Invisalign, you get a convenience factor – your aligners are removable for when you'd prefer to keep the fact that you are straightening your teeth a secret.

They look similar to custom whitening trays, and are easy to insert. You can even remove them to eat, drink, brush and floss!
