Orthodontics & Invisalign Clear Braces
In an effort to provide our patients with comprehensive, full-service dentistry for your entire family, Smiles West maintains respected orthodontists on staff. Orthodontics is the treatment of any irregularities in the positioning of your teeth.
Braces for Children & Teens
Frequently, orthodontics is discussed with the parents of our younger patients. We are able to help young children if we note need of interceptive orthodontics, this is a phase-one approach to a more long-term orthodontic plan. This plan allows us to guide teeth properly while they are developing, creating sufficient space and optimal alignment for pre-teen patients. With their teeth fully developed, the child will then move on to the second phase of treatment which may involve braces and/or retainers.
Inconspicuous Braces for Adults & Older Teens
If you have a need for orthodontics but would rather not have the obvious statement of braces, we have options available for you. We can discuss with you:
- Clear or porcelain brackets
- Invisalign clear aligners
Invisalign Clear Braces
Invisalign is a system of clear aligners used to correct the positioning of your teeth. Using 3D imaging, our orthodontist creates a treatment plan that will reposition your teeth through the use of a series of clear, removable aligners. You'll receive a series of the aligners, each one to be worn for about two weeks before you move to the next. Patients love that this system is generally faster than traditional braces, and with far less office visits. Invisalign will straighten teeth and give you the gorgeous smile you've always wanted.
