Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Aligners?

Clear aligners are plastic replicas of your teeth. Wearing them puts gentle pressure on the teeth, ever-so-slightly repositioning them. Aligners are one of many technological advancements that have made orthodontic treatment less conspicuous and one of the many appliances orthodontists use to move teeth and align jaws.

What Are Porcelain Braces?

Porcelain brackets are a great way to hide the fact that you’re wearing braces by blending in with your teeth. These porcelains or “clear” aligners might just have an aesthetic appeal, but they also provide stability and support for those who need it most- which makes them perfect whether you want something subtle or not so much!

What Are Metal Braces?

Braces are an ideal treatment option for patients with severe tooth crookedness. They may also be cheaper than aligners, and their durability makes them more convenient because they don’t need to worry about misplacing or losing them like other types of retainers do!

What is Smile Design?

Smile design is a cosmetic dental procedure that corrects teeth imperfections and restores dental health and appearance.

What Is Profile Enhancement?

Teeth and chin repositioning can dramatically improve a patient’s side view

What Are TADS?
Temporary anchorage devices or TADs are small titanium anchors used as a fixed point to move teeth
What Are Expanders?

What is Herbst?

What Is Molar Distalizers

What is MEAW / GEAW

Gum Metal Edgewise Arch Wire technique allows treatment of many skeletal malocclusions repositioning the chin anteriorly or posteriorly without surgery 

What is Surgical Orthodontic Prep?
Some cases have severe jaw discrepancies which require dental alignment before surgical jaw correction
What is Prosthetic Orthodontic Prep

Tooth replacement might not be enough. Some cases need prior dental alignment to facilitate better placement of implants and crowns

Impacted Canines

An impacted canine is a blocked tooth underneath the gum line that can be corrected with a simple surgical procedure and orthodontics

What is Early Treatment?
Early treatment at 7-8 years helps develop the dental arch to make room for permanent teeth erupt and improve how the dental arches fit together.  A resting period after early treatment allows permanent teeth to fully erupt. This is followed by short final tooth detailing.
What Are Space Maintainers?

Devices used to leave enough space for permanent teeth to grow in after baby teeth are lost

What Are Intraoral Scanners
