Treatment OptionsOrthodontics has changed dramatically in the past few years. We utilize products that are both effective and innovative to complete your treatment in the most efficient and comfortable manner possible. In addition to the traditional metal brackets, we also offer ceramic, tooth-colored brackets with clear wires, invisible “aligners” (removable trays) and lingual brackets which are placed on the back side of the teeth. These options will allow you to receive superior treatment with a look that you are most comfortable with.

Warm and welcoming, the offices provide private consult areas, free Wi-Fi equipped internet café, flat screen TV’s and even movie theatres showing family-friendly movies for our patients’ enjoyment.
