Treatment Options

Early Treatment

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children get an orthodontic evaluation at the age of 7 to check the growth and development of the teeth and jaws.  If early treatment is indicated this is known as Phase I treatment.

Happy Children
Teen Treatment

The ideal age for full orthodontic treatment and bite correction is once the permanent teeth have erupted and growth is not yet complete.

Adult Treatment

Whether you have never had orthodontic treatment or have had some movement since your braces came off it's never too late to make a perfect smile.  We offer several different cosmetic options.

Surgical Orthodontics


Some bites require a combination of orthodontics and orthognathic (jaw) surgery.  We work closely with your oral surgeon to give you the best result possible.

Clear Braces and Invisalign


3M Clarity Advance  have nearly invisible brackets that matches the shade of the teeth and stays crystal clear without staining. These brackets neither stain nor discolor, maintainig its original appearance throughout the treatment.

Invisalign is a virtually invisible solution, so you can smile confidently both during treatment and after.

3D Scanner

No more goopy impressions.  Our State of the intra-oral scanner creates a digital 3D model of your teeth.
