The job of an orthodontist is to help people whose teeth are misaligned or require some kind of correction. Orthodontists specialize in how the jaws and teeth are aligned. Orthodontists have the power to help patients feel less anxious about their teeth and provide options for treatment, whether it be traditional braces or clear aligners like Invisalign.
The American Association of Orthodontics recommends all children get a check-up with an orthodontic specialist no later than age 7, but you can start by visiting the orthodontist at any time! Early treatment may mean that a patient can avoid more serious complications later in life.
Treatment time for braces typically ranges from one to three years. Some things to factor in are the growth of the patient’s mouth and face, as well as the severity of the problem. It is imperative to follow treatment guidelines and keep up with your regular dental visits with your orthodontist.
Many patients feel anxious about getting braces at first. Fortunately, braces do not often hurt. Your may feel a small amount of discomfort for a couple days as your mouth gets used to the new braces. We offer many tools and suggestions for easing the discomfort in the days following having braces installed or adjusted.
Here are the benefits of Invisalign:

What Others Are Saying
“This is by far the best dentist I have ever been to! They were fast, very pleasant, and very careful when cleaning my teeth. They found I am missing two permanent teeth and still have my baby teeth and gave me a quote for the next time I went in. The doctor was GREAT ! He was very nice and asked me if I had any questions or concerns whatsoever. The girl who cleaned my teeth was amazing! I felt like I had known her forever. I’ve never been one to talk to the doctors because I’m not there to socialize, but I was so comfy that I didn’t mind. I highly recommend this place to anyone!!!”

“I had a horrible toothache and they got me in within 45 minutes. They took X-rays and I needed a root canal and a cap. They did it right then. No wait either and the staff is very friendly. I need a lot more work done and will definitely be going to them. They also did my kids cleanings and my kids had no pain or complaints. My daughter has sensory issues, so they worked great with her. My kids are 10 and 11 years old. The dentist is friendly and actually talks to you about what you need done. I was terrified to go to the dentist. If you are like me and need a lot of work done than this is the place to go.”
