Traditional Braces

Virtually everyone is familiar with traditional braces – but did you know that there are several variants available depending on your unique needs and preferences? This orthodontic treatment completely transforms oral health, beauty and overall wellbeing for the better.

Myobrace System

A less well known way to adjust teeth is the Myobrace system. Like Invisalign, this system uses a comfortable, removable oral appliance to shift teeth into place rather than depending on the traditional bracket and wire braces. Unlike Invisalign, patients do not need to wear Myobrace all day. We recommend that patients use their appliance about 10 hours each day typically during sleep and for just a few hours while they are awake. By treating the underlying myofunctional habits that lead to orthodontic concerns, the Myobrace system offers patients comfortable, effective orthodontic care.


Many teenagers and adults aren’t too happy at the thought of wearing metal wires and brackets on their smile for years at a time. Invisalign offers these patients a sophisticated and seamless option that creates the lovely results they deserve.

State-of-the-Art Technology

Many patients think of advanced technology as being convenient for doctors or cool to look at but, actually, state-of-the-art dental techniques and technologies have a huge impact on the speed, comfort and predictability of patients’ treatment plans. That’s why our dentists and team invest in the future of care with training and tools necessary to make use of the latest dentistry innovations.

Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs)

Newton’s third law of motion states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. When applied to the use of bracket and wire braces to shift teeth into their ideal alignment, it presents some areas for concern. Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs) are removable dental implants that help orthodontists circumvent that issue by placing pressure on the implant instead of another tooth to shift smiles.

Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics (AOO)

One of the main concerns patients have with orthodontics is time. Luckily, Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics (AOO) make any smile straightening option faster than ever. On average, AOO reduces total treatment time between 3 and 8 months and can be used in conjunction with traditional braces, alignment trays or any other orthodontic treatment.

iTero Scanner

Imagine being able to accurately map the contours of your smile inside and out. In the past, we relied on a combination of dental impressions, x-rays and digital photos to create restorations, plan orthodontic care and more. The iTero scanner offers a more precise way to map smiles, project future results and create custom treatment plans.

Orthodontic Appliances

Retainers, palatal expanders, spacers and other oral appliances are available to help patients reach their orthodontic treatment goals. Whether patients are struggling with a misaligned bite (over, under or crossbite), crowded jawline or other concerns, orthodontic appliances correct occlusion (the way teeth fit together) and make orthodontic treatment more comfortable and effective.
