Invisalign Braces

Invisalign™ is an invisible solution. So you won’t draw undue attention to your mouth while in treatment. Invisalign treatment consists of a series of clear aligners that straighten your teeth right before your eyes. Change them about every 2-3 weeks, your teeth will move—little by little, week by week—until they have moved to the final position your orthodontist or dentist has prescribed. Comfortable to wear, our aligners are also removable so you can eat, drink, brush, and floss as usual. You’ll see your doctor every 2-3 months to see how you’re progressing. Every few visits you’ll be given additional aligners to continue your treatment. Commonly, the number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but treatment time and number of aligners will vary from case to case.

What is the iTero Scanner?

iteroscannerBy using the iTero Scanner, we can create a digital map of your mouth. We then use the images collected to manufacture Invsalign aligners for you. This technology replicates the malocclusion in a precise manner, while eliminating the need for inconvenient alternatives that can otherwise be bothersome to the patient.

In the past, impressions of a patient’s oral cavity was often a nuisance as it was both time consuming and uncomfortable. Traditionally, large metal trays were used with liquid plaster against the upper and lower jar. Patients were often concerned with the danger of gagging or swallowing the excess plaster “goop.”

The iTero Scanner significantly alleviates these concerns. Our patients do not have to endure any further discomfort or anxiety while we take their impression. Now the entire activity is conducted digitally, eliminating the need for liquid plaster. Patients are encouraged to view their images as they are taken on our in-office computer display. After we have finished taking snapshots of your entire oral cavity, we then create a 3-dimensional landscape using the digital photography. The technology is much more convenient than the old method and has been found to be even more accurate than using liquid plaster.

Take the next step towards your best smile!

Incognito Braces

The iBraces System is a new generation of orthodontic braces for teens and adults. They are the only 100% customized invisible fixed braces available on the market today. Because no two people are alike, no two sets of braces are alike.

These braces are placed behind your teeth so no one will know that you are wearing braces unless you tell them. These unique braces are created using state-of-the-art technology and are 100% customized to the shape of your teeth and to your dental situation. They have the unique prescription that your orthodontist creates for you built-in to ensure you get the results that you want. With our braces you get efficient, effective tooth movement and great aesthetics.

Lingual braces have been used to treat men and women ranging from the age of 13 to 60+. Most people who can be treated with regular braces can be treated with lingual braces. Most often they are: adult professionals, musicians who play wind instruments, adults and teens playing contact sports, people who want to avoid damage to the front surfaces of their teeth and inner lips, anyone who wants straight teeth and an outstanding smile, people who are concerned about wearing braces that show.

Clear Braces

Another orthodontic option that some patients choose are ceramic braces. This appliance may be used whenever metal braces are appropriate for treatment.

Clarity braces are similar in strength to metal, but they come off easily at the end of treatment. Clarity aesthetic braces are the clear alternative to metal braces. An attractive translucent appearance and comfortable design gives you all the self-confidence you need to face each day with a smile.

You’ll be noticed but your braces won’t and you may feel better about yourself knowing that the natural beauty of your teeth is shining through — not your braces.

Clarity braces also won’t stain or discolor, so they’ll look as good the day they come off as they did the day your orthodontist put them on. You can wear Clarity braces even if you participate in sports.

Metal Braces

Metal Braces with Improved Aesthetics
— SPEED braces are self-litigating braces, which eliminate the need for tie-wings due to their unique design.

What this allows for is significant appliance minimization and improved aesthetics. In fact, many SPEED patients have expressed how much they appreciate the superior aesthetics and jewel-like appearance of the SPEED appliance.

SPEED braces eliminate two of the most common food traps: “tie-wings” and “ligature ties.” The clean lines of SPEED’s design results in a smooth, rounded silhouette that is easy for all patients to keep clean.

SPEED braces improve patient comfort in two ways:

  • the smooth, rounded design minimizes soft tissue irritation; and
  • they permit the use of extremely light forces by eliminating the high frictional resistance caused by ligature ties.

There are significant treatment time savings with this system thanks to the self-ligation offered by the Super Elastic Spring Clip, as well as allowing for precision in tooth movement.

She perfects your smile without compromising your overall dental health!”

“Sky was FANTASTIC : ) I went to another orthdontist beforehand and switched after moving and I’m so glad I did! My teeth are absolutely amazing and along the way she always took my opinions into consideration. Thank you so much! “

“Dr. Sky and her staff are wonderful! I ordered the Invisalign braces a year ago, and just completed my last set yesterday. I had one tooth that was turned about 45 degrees, and that was my main concern. In just under a year, I now have a beautiful smile that I am proud to show off. Dr. Sky and her staff were always pleasant, friendly an explained the process thoroughly. Next up for braces is my 10 year old son. I highly recommend Dr. Sky Naslenas!”
