PICTURE THE BENEFITS OF COMPUTERIZED IMAGING
Our computer technology is the most up-to-date available. Our advanced computerized video imaging can be manipulated to show possible changes in the patient’s face and teeth; providing a greater understanding about the benefits of orthodontics. New technology is part of our ongoing commitment to patient education. This is why we implement a computerized “sign-in” system that allows us to monitor wait time. Because each patient station is linked to this system, we always know how long you have been waiting, and we never forget that your time is as valuable as ours.
Lingual braces are not your ordinary “tin-grin” appliances; they are attached to the backside of the teeth, which makes them completely non-visible. This advanced method makes lingual orthodontics particularly well-suited for adults, who often want to improve the look and function of their teeth without letting anyone else know about their treatment.
Lingual brackets are attached to the backside of the teeth, which have their own unique shape-unlike the front of each tooth, which is fairly uniform. Standard brackets are mass-produced, but each lingual bracket must be custom-formed to the unique shape of each individual tooth, providing for the ultimate in comfort and care.

AREN’T COMPUTERS WONDERFUL?
If the thought of wearing braces is holding you back from the smile you’ve always wanted. Don’t be held back any longer! Invisalign, the state-of-the-art alternative to braces that is virtually undetectable to other people. Invisalign straightens your teeth, not with brackets and wires, but with a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners.
NEW COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY MAKES INVISALIGN POSSIBLE.
Invisalign uses the latest 3-D computer technology to create customized aligners. Your first step is a visit to an Align Technology-certified orthodontist. Where your needs for correction will be determined. Then, the orthodontist sends us precise treatment instructions. Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions into a sequence of finely calibrated aligners as few as 12 or as many as 48. You’ll wear each aligner for about two weeks and only take it out for eating, brushing, and flossing. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will move – gradually – week by week, until they move into the final alignment your orthodontist prescribed. Then, you’ll be smiling like you’ve never smiled before.
ONLY AN ORTHODONTIST CAN DETERMINE IF INVISALIGN IS RIGHT FOR YOU.
To ensure the best possible results, only an orthodontist who has been trained and certified by Align Technology can diagnose and treat using Invisalign Invisalign is not intended for children and is not appropriate for every adult. Only an orthodontist can determine if this treatment is an effective option for you. To see if Invisalign can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted, call our office for an appointment.
See the difference! Clarity™ Braces are less visible.
You may want to “brace yourself” for a new view of braces.
You or someone you know may avoid getting braces for fear that you won’t look attractive, or that people may treat you differently.
One option you may want to consider is ceramic braces. They offer a less visible alternative to metal braces because they are typically translucent and smooth.
Less noticeable braces may also help boost your self-esteem. You may feel better about yourself knowing that the natural look of your teeth is shining through.
It makes sense to consider Clarity™ Ceramic Braces from 3M Unitek. They blend with your teeth’ color, bond to teeth in a manner comparable to metal braces, and are designed to stay securely in place. They also do not stain or discolor. Plus, Clarity braces have the strength of steel; they resist breaking even when the wearer participates in sports activities. Visit 3M Unitek for more information.
