Our Orthodontic Treatment Services

Dental Braces for Children and Adults

Dental braces are the most traditional and well-known method for straightening teeth. We offer:

  • Traditional metal braces
  • Clear braces (ceramic)
  • Self-ligating braces
  • Lingual braces
  • Clear aligners (Invisalign)

Two-Phase Orthodontic Treatment

Two-phase orthodontic treatment is a specialized process that combines tooth straightening and physical and facial changes. Two-phase treatment aims to maximize the opportunity to accomplish the ideal healthy, functional and aesthetic result that will remain stable throughout your child's life.

Dentofacial Orthopedics

Dentofacial orthopedics involves guiding facial growth and development in children, using specialized techniques to address jaw size and position discrepancies.

Craniofacial Orthodontics

Craniofacial orthodontics is a highly specialized type of orthodontic treatment that focuses on correcting facial and skull deformities. This involves working closely with other medical professionals, such as plastic surgeons and neurosurgeons.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a field of dentistry that focuses on surgeries related to the mouth, jaw, face and skull. Our orthodontists have extensive knowledge and experience in this area and work closely with oral surgeons to provide comprehensive treatment.

iTero Element Scanner

We use the latest technology to ensure accurate and efficient patient treatment. The iTero Element Scanner allows us to create 3D digital models of your teeth, eliminating the need for messy traditional impressions.

Mouthguards and Retainers

We offer custom-made mouthguards to protect teeth during sports or other physical activities. We also provide retainers to maintain your new smile after orthodontic treatment.

Palatal Expander

A palatal expander is used to widen the upper jaw, creating more space for crowded teeth and correcting crossbites. This treatment is typically recommended for children while their jaws are still developing.
