• We want our patients to finish their treatment with a beautiful and healthy smile!  When our patients first get their braces on, we provide them with thorough instructions as well as all of the dental supplies that they need to care for their teeth while they are in braces.  For our patients who play sports, we also include mouthguards designed specifically for use with braces.  Whenever the supplies run out or the mouthguard is worn out, we will gladly replace them.   

  • Opal Seal®

    We use Opal Seal® on every patient.  Opal Seal® is a new orthodontic primer (thin invisible layer) that is applied to the teeth before the braces are installed.  Opal Seal® acts as a physical barrier to prevent plaque from damaging the teeth’s enamel, while also providing a constant and safe source of fluoride.  This helps prevent decalcification (white spots) on the teeth, and helps our patients avoid getting cavities around the braces.

  • The Invisalign® System

    Invisalign® is a method of straightening teeth with a series of clear plastic trays called aligners.  As patients replace each aligner with the next in the series, their teeth become slightly straighter until the desired result is achieved.   Generally speaking, minor to moderate orthodontic problems in patients who have all of their permanent teeth can be treated with Invisalign®.  More severe problems require conventional treatment with braces.

    We want our patients to experience the same level of satisfaction with their finished result regardless of the treatment method they choose.  If the desired outcome is not achieved with Invisalign, we will treat our patients with braces at no extra cost.

  • Retainer Check Appointments

    After the active phase of orthodontic treatment (i.e. after the braces are removed), patients are required to wear retainers indefinitely.  We see our patients on a regular basis to check their retainers for a minimum of two years after their orthodontic treatment.  Subsequently, patients are instructed to come to our office if they have any concerns about their retainers, if they lose or break the retainers, or if they just want us to clean their retainers.  There is never a fee for these appointments.
