We offer full orthodontic services including but not limited to, invisalign, expanders and guided growth appliances. By providing interceptive orthodontics, our treatments can prevent future orthodontic issues by influencing the growth of the jaw while it is still developing. With proactive treatment, we can reduce or even eliminate the amount of time children need in braces when they reach adolescence. We offer the following orthodontic treatments at our office:


Habit Appliance


Habit appliances are used to stop thumb and finger sucking habits, retrain improper tongue position, and improve swallowing patterns. The Healthy Start Habit correctors also help develop proper jaw growth and can correct minor teeth crowding.


Space Maintenance


When a child loses a tooth too early, neighboring teeth can drift into the newly open space and interfere with the eruption of the adult tooth. We use space maintainers to prevent this from occurring. They can be stainless steel or plastic and fixed or removable.


HealthyStart™ System


HealthyStart™ is an innovative orthodontic system that straightens teeth and improves airway function for better sleep and breathing. It is a non-invasive and natural way of straightening teeth while improving sleep disordered breathing. Because treatment starts at a younger age than with traditional braces, it’s highly effective in influencing jaw development.
