Since each patient is unique, we truly believe that each patient requires an individualized orthodontic treatment plan. After thoroughly reviewing comprehensive diagnostic information, our doctor formulates a treatment plan specific to each patient. There are many possible combinations of treatment systems, often paired with a patient-friendly orthodontic appliance to achieve the desired result.
While it is not possible to elaborate on all possible combinations of treatment alternatives, described below are some of the more common approaches to correcting a malocclusion (bite and/or alignment problem).
Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces. The Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to move the teeth over time to give you the smile that you've always wanted.
Invisalign has developed many new advances to their system and is now able to treat not only adults, but also teens, adolescents and even younger children! Our orthodontist has received extensive training to treat patients predictably with Invisalign and is able to accurately diagnose those cases which will be most successful. He has been designated as a Platinum Provider, indicating his vast experience treating a large number of challenging Invisalign cases.

MicroArch braces are very small, low profile braces milled from aerospace strength steel. This results in greater precision, more patient comfort, and more predictable results.
The arch wires used with our MicroArch braces are made of space-aged metal alloys that generate light, continuous forces, resulting in more patient comfort and faster tooth movement.
Patients can choose from over 25 different colors to customize their smile every time their braces are adjusted about every two months.
Ovation C Ceramic Braces:
Ovation C Ceramic Braces are an excellent solution for those patients who desire a less noticeable appearance to their braces. They provide an esthetic solution with exceptionally high translucency, blending-in very nicely to the patient’s surrounding enamel.
Since we are able to incorporate our space-aged arch wires with the Ceramic Braces, we are able to provide an esthetic solution when the case may be too complex for a predictable result with Invisalign.
