Before and After pictures
People, especially children and teens, are afraid of going to the orthodontist. These trips are often associated with pain and discomfort as the orthodontist tries to fix your teeth. This does not have to be the case. We offer orthodontic services that are beneficial for your oral and facial region without promoting fear through our environment. If you need to have your teeth or jaws looked at, then visit us today and leave better than when you came in.
Treatments We Offer
The type of treatment that you receive will largely depend on your age and development. This leads to the following classifications:
Early treatment refers to the treatment that is administered to children and teens. This treatment is most effective because it is administered at formative stages. In the early years, children and teenagers are easily molded. The same applies to their teeth.
Adult treatment, on the other hand, is that which is administered after you are already of legal age and out of your teens. This is considered as treatment administered at 21 years of age or more. While it is considered late, adult treatment is as effective as early treatment. The only catch is that it might take more time to achieve the same goal since your teeth and jaws are advanced in regards to formation at this stage.
In addition to these age-based, broad categories of treatment, you will be presented with a number of options for treatment when you visit us. For those who have abnormalities such as an overbite, underbite or even crooked teeth, we provide you with the following treatment options:
Traditional braces are dental devices that are installed on the teeth. They are made out of high-grade stainless steel metal, featuring archwires and brackets. These are effective in aligning or straightening your teeth in relation to your jaw. You have the option of getting colorful rubber bands, metallic, clear or ceramic brackets with traditional braces. These braces guide the archwires as to how your teeth should be aligned and straightened. Unfortunately, these braces come with food restrictions and instructions for taking care of them in order to preserve both the braces and your teeth.
These is a series of invisible aligners that are used in place of braces. They are made from hig-grade acrylic and have smoothed out edges. They are therefore comfortable, customized, removable and effective. These aligners gain popularity from the fact that they are invisible. You no longer have to opt for ceramic brackets as the only way to reduce the appearance of your braces.
Palatal expanders are another mode of treatment that we administer. These are dental devices that are used on the upper jaw to expand it. They are used to treat an underbite and are almost always followed up with the use of braces to align the teeth. Once the jaw is expanded to achieve the perfect bite, the teeth also have to be straightened and in line with each other to achieve the desired results.

We are a reliable lot. Some professionals tend to be unavailable when patients need them.

We pride ourselves in the fact that our patients find us reliable. We will be available for your appointment and follow up on your progress after diagnosing and treating any abnormality. In fact, we go over and above to recommend preventative measures if your teeth and jaws are healthy but might be prone to some sort of abnormality.
We communicate effectively. When you walk into our offices, we will go through a process of inquiry to find out how healthy your facial structure, mouth and teeth are. Based on the results, we will let you know exactly what is going on health-wise; explain any abnormality and the measures that you might need to rectify these abnormalities. Such effective communication is important so that you are informed at all times. Some professionals tend to go about their work without letting the patient know exactly what is going on. While some communicate, it is not done effectively as they do not ensure that the patient understands.
Our services are very affordable. We know how expensive orthodontic services can get and therefore offer you the best price for diagnosis and treatment. Additionally, we take different modes of payment such as cash and insurance to ensure that we do not limit you when it comes to paying for your consultation and treatment.
