Teeth-Straightening Solutions From The Teenage Years And Beyond
We offer a range of orthodontic treatments suitable for every smile, and all members of the family from adolescents to adults. Our goal is to not only enhance the appearance of your smile but also improve your oral health. Misaligned teeth and a crooked bite can be hard to clean, causing discomfort or pain. With our orthodontic treatments, we can address these issues in as little as six months.
How do I know if I need orthodontics?
You might benefit from orthodontic treatment if you have experienced any of the following problems:
- Overbite – when your upper teeth sit too far forward.
- Spacing – gaps or spaces between the teeth.
- Underbite – when your lower teeth sit too far forward.
- Crowding – when teeth are overlapping or impossible to floss.
- Crossbite – a bite that doesn’t mesh comfortably.
- Pain – Chronic headaches, jaw pain, or upper back and neck pain.
Orthodontic Treatment Options
We understand that every patient has unique needs and budget, and we offer a variety of treatment options to choose from. Here are some of the options that may be available:
When you think of braces, you may envision bulky metal brackets with wires. However, modern dental brackets are now smaller, less noticeable, and just as effective as older styles. They’re easier to clean and much more comfortable, making the orthodontic treatment process much more enjoyable.
In addition to traditional brackets, we also offer clear brackets that are more popular among our adult patients. These brackets combine conventional orthodontic treatment with discretion, making them a great option for those who prefer a more subtle look. At a quick glance, no one will even realize that you are wearing braces.
Clear aligners like Invisalign have become increasingly popular. This treatment involves a series of custom-made transparent trays that gradually shift your teeth into their ideal position. The aligners fit snugly and precisely, and can be removed for eating, brushing, flossing, and special occasions. This makes them a convenient and discreet option for orthodontic treatment.

Typically, orthodontic treatment costs between $3000 to $5000+ out-of-pocket with a typical insurance plan. However, the exact cost may vary based on individual needs. We can provide you with an accurate quote after an oral examination, which will help you determine how much your insurance plan will cover and what your actual out-of-pocket expenses will be. For those without insurance, the cost of orthodontic treatment is typically around $4000 to $6000+.
When determining the cost of orthodontic treatment, there are several factors to consider, such as:
- The current condition of your oral health, including teeth and gums.
- The amount of movement your teeth require.
