Types of Orthodontic Treatments

Invisalign

​Step 1 – Meet with your doctor and get a sneak peek at your new smile

Step  2 – Start transforming your smile right from your first fitting
this is a key step in your success. Your doctor will ensure your aligners fit well, answer your questions, and let you know what to expect.

Step 3 – Keep your brand-new smile beautiful.  You transformed your smile with the world’s most advanced clear aligner system.  Now it’s easy to keep the smile you love.  Invisalign’s Vivera retainers are custom made and 30% stronger than other retainers.  More info here >>>

Growth Guidance Orthodontics

The Anterior Growth Guidance Appliance (AGGA) or Removable Growth Guidance Appliance (RGGA) is the first phase of a two-phase orthodontic treatment system. These appliances fit on the roof of your mouth while giving the tongue enough space to comfortably rest. They apply a gentle force to the bones and teeth which stimulates growth on the upper jaw (maxilla).  More info here >>>

Conventional or Traditional Braces

However, traditional braces are still a great choice because …

  1. You can’t remove traditional braces yourself. You’ll have to wear them during your entire treatment, and only the orthodontist can remove them after treatment.
  2. They Fix More Problems.  Depending on your concerns, invisible aligners may not be an adequate choice because they can’t fix every problem.
  3. They Are Usually More Affordable.  Orthodontia treatments aren’t usually cheap, but traditional braces are usually cheaper and/or more cost-effective than Invisalign.
  4. They Are Great for Any Age.  Invisalign is a common choice for adults because they can fix their teeth without a mouthful of metal. Invisible aligners are also available for teens. However, no options is available for children. Therefore, if you want to improve your child’s smile, traditional braces are better because they can be used on kids, teens, and adults.  More info here >>>
