The Clear Choice in Orthodontics
you have always wanted straight teeth but have been unwilling to
commit to years of procedures, let us introduce a small miracle
to you. With the innovative invisible aligners of Invisalign™
and ClearCorrect™, you can have straight teeth in only 9 - 15
months! They correct overbite, underbite, crossbite, gapped
teeth, and overcrowding.
use a state-of-the-art 3-D computer-imaging technology to
outline an entire treatment plan. It designs sets of aligners
that will be changed every two weeks as progress is made. With
each new aligner, your teeth are gently moved into the desired
position. The length of time of treatment depends on your
personal goals and needs. And you spend less time in the dental
chair, with evaluations only every one to two months.
There are advantages to the Invisalign and ClearCorrect systems.
They are nearly invisible, so no one will know you are
straightening your teeth. Your teeth maintain a natural look
instead of a metallic one. This lets you maintain your
confidence at work or in social settings.

they are very comfortable to wear. And amazingly, you can eat
and drink whatever you like during treatment, as they are
removable and you can properly and thoroughly clean your teeth.

recommendation for children to have an orthodontic evaluation by
age seven. Our doctors have expertise in craniofacial growth and

child a beautiful smile before they reach the age of high school
plays, proms, and yearbook photos.
Correction – So You Don’t Have to be Self-Conscious!
Technology is always changing in the field of dentistry, and the

braces that wrapped around a tooth are now replaced with
brackets that are bonded just to the front surface of the tooth.

of teeth and are completely unnoticeable. These work well for
adults who need a very professional look for their job or
