Self-Ligating Braces

Self-ligating braces are a type of braces that uses a clip or door to hold the wire in place, eliminating the need for elastic ties. Compared to traditional braces, this can result in fewer appointments, less discomfort, and provide more efficient tooth movement.


Self-ligating metal braces may result in faster treatment time, as they require fewer adjustments and may be more comfortable since they do not use elastic ties that can cause friction and pressure.


Clear self-ligating braces are made of a clear or tooth-colored ceramic material that blends in with teeth for a more aesthetic appearance during treatment. Like its metal counterparts, it uses a clip mechanism to hold the wire.

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners (Invisalign, Spark, and uLab) are a popular alternative to traditional braces for correcting misaligned teeth. They are nearly invisible and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing, making them a convenient option for many patients.

Each brand of aligners has unique features and benefits, and our practice offers a range of options to suit different needs and preferences. We can help you choose the best type of aligners for your case and provide personalized treatment plans for optimal results. Give us a call to learn more about your options!

Early Treatment

Early orthodontic treatment involves addressing orthodontic issues in children while they are still growing and developing. It prevents more serious problems from developing later on and may even reduce the amount of time needed for orthodontic treatment in the long run.

One common early orthodontic treatment is using a palatal expander, which widens the upper jaw to create more space for adult teeth to come in properly. Another type of appliance is space maintainers, which help keep gaps between teeth open if a baby tooth is lost prematurely. This can prevent nearby teeth from shifting out of place and causing further problems.

Schedule your child's first orthodontic evaluation at age 7 to identify potential issues early and prevent more serious problems from developing. Book an appointment with our experienced team today to give your child the best possible chance for a healthy, beautiful smile.

TMJ Splint Therapy

TMD, also known as temporomandibular joint dysfunction, is a painful condition that causes discomfort, tenderness, or hinders mobility in the jaw. TMJ splint therapy involves wearing a custom-made appliance to help relieve pain and discomfort associated with TMD.

The splint is designed to fit over the teeth and can help stabilize the jaw and reduce muscle tension. TMJ splint therapy can be an effective non-surgical solution for patients with TMD. Our experienced dental professionals can help determine if it's the right option for you.
