Lingual Braces are a unique choice that allows patients to smile with confidence both during and after treatment. Lingual braces are an aesthetic alternative to traditional braces. They are placed on the back of your teeth and are completely hidden from view. No one will know that you are wearing braces...unless you tell them.

The Lingual appliance system is customized for each patient, to provide superior brackets and wires with excellent aesthetics. They require minimal adjustments, are comfortable and produce predictable clinical results. Lingual braces straighten teeth within the same amount of time metal braces do.

Lingual Braces are the best and only non-visible form of fixed orthodontic therapy. Lingual Braces have continued to evolve, making them a truly reliable form of orthodontic treatment by utilizing principles similar to those of traditional braces.

Since lingual braces are practically invisible, people are concentrating on your smile and not your braces.

ClearCorrect

ClearCorrect straightens teeth using a series of clear, custom-made, removable aligners that gradually move teeth a little bit at a time, eventually correcting the teeth and smile to a new, revitalized look.

ClearCorrect treatment involves four phases of aligner therapy. Each phase requires a new set of aligners that are worn for a three-week period. The time between each phase allows for control and flexibility.

ClearCorrect aligners are worn all the time, except when eating and drinking, or while brushing and flossing. Designed with aesthetics in mind, ClearCorrect aligners are barely noticeable and won't have an impact on your daily routine.

Treatment time can vary from one to two years, depending upon your specific condition and degree of misalignment.

ClearCorrect can be used to treat the following orthodontic conditions:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Spacing between teeth
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crooked or turned (rotated) teeth

Headgear

Headgear is a general name for a type of appliance that creates special forces for guiding the growth of your face and jaws. Headgear is also used to move your teeth into better position or to prevent them from moving when they’re not supposed to

At first, your headgear may look a little strange to you, and it will seem a little awkward. But it’s a necessary part of your orthodontic treatment. Rest assured the healthy, beautiful smile that will be yours for a lifetime will be well worth the effort you make now.

To get the best results from your headgear, follow these simple guidelines:

  • Make sure to wear your headgear as directed. It only works when you wear it!
  • Always closely follow the instructions for wearing your headgear. If you do, you’ll finish this part of your treatment as quickly as possible and with the best results.
  • Always be careful and remove your headgear as you were taught.
  • Be sure to remove your headgear before you begin running or playing sports, including rough-and-tumble games. Accidents can happen even when you’re just having fun.
  • Be careful to prevent anyone from grabbing or pulling on your headgear. Do not wear headgear in situations where there is a chance that it could be pulled off or pulled out of place.
  • Take your headgear with you to every appointment.
  • We will give you instructions on the care and cleaning of your headgear. To keep the appliance working as it should, be sure to follow those instructions carefully.

Your teeth may be tender or even slightly loose the first few days you wear your headgear. This tenderness is normal and will disappear as you adjust to this new part of your treatment. If you continue to be uncomfortable for more than a few days, be sure to let our team know.
