With our orthodontic options, Dr. Bal and our team can easily straighten you or your child’s teeth using a treatment ideally suited to your needs. Whether you get orthodontic braces or Invisalign, the end-result will remain the same: a beautifully straight smile. Are you ready for straighter teeth? If so, simply read on below or contact us today for an initial consultation.
Traditional Orthodontic Braces
For decades, traditional metal braces have been the most trusted treatment in all of orthodontics, able to correct a wide variety of alignment issues both large and small. They are great for children because they are both durable and affordable, and in most cases, they are able to complete treatment in about 12-24 months.
They work by applying metal brackets to each tooth to hold a wire that gradually guides the teeth into their proper positions. With braces, we cannot only straighten the teeth but also correct jaw alignment problems. They are the go-to solution for even the most complex orthodontic problems, and thanks to the multi-colored elastic bands that are used to keep the wires in place, they even allow children to put a little bit of personality into their treatment. Our dental office is happy to accept dental insurance and also offers flexible financing so your orthodontic treatment is always easy to afford.
Invisalign® Clear Braces
Invisalign uses clear plastic aligner trays to discreetly straighten the teeth, enabling a patient to get the smile they’ve always wanted while their friends and family are none the wiser. If you’re looking for the most subtle and comfortable orthodontic treatment available today, you could do no better than Invisalign.
