Introducing Invisalign® — The Straightest Way to a Great Smile
Invisalign® straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. It’s virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth.
The Invisalign® System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign® aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign® is right for you. After sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign® uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions in a sequence of finely calibrated aligners – as few as 12 or as many as 48. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually – week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you'll be smiling like you never have before!

To ensure the best possible results, only an orthodontist who has been trained and certified by Align Technology can diagnose and treat using Invisalign®. Invisalign® is not intended for children and is not appropriate for every adult. Only an orthodontist can determine if this treatment is an effective option for you. To see if Invisalign® can help you achieve the smile you've always wanted, contact us to make an appointment.

Clear braces feature a comfortable design with a translucent appearance. Many patients enjoy the combination of ceramic and metal because it is simultaneously attractive and sturdy. In fact, these braces are so sturdy that many doctors will recommend them to their patients who play sports. Patients are allowed to engage in most everyday activities without fear of delaying or impeding their progress.
Also, because they have a semi-transparent color that will not stain, patients can proceed with necessary orthodontic treatment without having to feel self-conscious. In addition, clear braces’ smooth, rounded shape allows for greater patient comfort.
These features are designed for patients regardless of age. If you have questions about clear braces, please consult your orthodontist.

Having braces doesn’t mean you have to have a “tin grin.” Our office also uses lingual braces, which attach to the lingual side (tongue side) of your teeth. These appliances are well-suited for adults, who may worry about the aesthetic nature of regular metal braces.
Lingual braces are also custom-fit for your teeth and treatment plan. While the fronts of your teeth are fairly consistent, the back side of each tooth has its own distinctive shape. Thus, each bracket must be manufactured for each individual patient.
You can receive the dramatic results of orthodontic treatment without anyone knowing, as the braces are virtually invisible. Ask us if lingual braces are right for you.

What makes the Damon® System different?
Tie-less braces that don't need to be "tightened" and are gentle to the teeth and tissues.
High-technology, memory-shape wires that quickly move teeth and require fewer adjustment.
A clinically proven treatment approach that aligns teeth and enhances facial aesthetics - usually without extractions or rapid palatal expanders.
Fast treatment time and few office visits
With the Damon® System, treatment time is typically shorter than with traditional braces. Shorter treatment time means fewer appointments and a beautiful smile...faster. You may be surprised at how fast.
Beautiful faces and beautiful smiles
The Damon® System employs a unique treatment philosophy that goes beyond straight teeth to create broad beautiful smiles. We take into account each patients' face, profile and other factors, anticipating what patients will look like in their
40's, 50's and beyond.
The days of having braces tightened are over. The Damon® System uses tie-less brackets that reduce the pressure on your teeth, allowing them to move more comfortably to their correct positions. This innovative approach to orthodontics ensures greater comfort throughout treatment.
For people of all ages
Straight teeth and a beautiful smile can enhance self-esteem and self-confidence at any age, plus improve overall oral health. Ask your orthodontist how you can benefit from the Damon® System. It's never too late to look and feel great.

Mini Twin Brackets
The mini-twin bracket has a mesh bonding base that allows it to curve, more accurately conforming to the tooth. Over the course of the treatment, it needs fewer archwires than standard brackets, which increases the overall comfort of the patient over the duration of the treatment.
Many patients enjoy its smaller, more compact size, which enables it to be less noticeable, but not less effective. While its profile is up to 30% smaller than its competition, it maintains the standard size for its bracket slots, which enables it to maintain the stability and control so important to the treatment process.
The size and the structure create an aesthetically pleasing effect while the added comfort and basic efficiency of the appliance make it a good choice for most patients.
