With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth and experience the benefits of a great smile without having to deal with a mouth full of metal! Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable, comfortable aligners that straighten teeth in the same amount of time as traditional braces.

What is dentofacial orthopedics? Many patients wonder what it means when their orthodontist specializes in dentofacial orthopedics. This specialization means that your doctor has training and experience in working with the management of tooth movement (orthodontics) as well as the guidance of facial growth and development (dentofacial orthopedics), which usually occurs during childhood.
Orthodontics is designed to reposition and straighten teeth, but surgical orthodontics (orthognathic surgery) may be needed in some cases to correct more severe jaw irregularities. Surgical orthodontics is used to straighten the jaw into alignment, often improving a patient's ability to chew, speak, and breathe. Braces are usually worn in conjunction with orthodontic surgery to make sure the teeth stay in the proper position as well. Orthognathic treatment is done with an orthodontist and oral surgeon working together to achieve the best possible result.
