Many people consider orthodontic treatment to be primarily cosmetic, as it works to improve the appearance of your teeth and smile. However, properly aligned teeth are not only more attractive, but also improve your oral health, as they are easier to keep clean with normal oral hygiene habits. Here at, we are committed to giving you a winning smile and a proper bite through high-quality orthodontic care, so you can enjoy a lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles.

The most common treatment our orthodontists can recommend is traditional braces. Braces are typically made of metal and bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth, but they may also be made from tooth-colored material to give you a more discreet treatment option. Another discreet treatment our orthodontists may recommend is Invisalign® clear aligners, which are nearly invisible when worn. Whether you receive braces or clear aligners, the end result for your smile will be the same — your teeth will be gently and gradually guided into their optimal positions using a consistent force, so you can enjoy a beautiful smile.

Orthodontic treatment typically lasts one to three years, depending on the patient’s individual situation. Factors which influence treatment length include the growth of the mouth and face and the severity of the problem needing correction. Patients also respond differently to treatments and grow at different rates, which can cause your overall treatment time to be different than the initial estimate our orthodontists and team provide.
