Teen and Adult Orthodontics

For many adults, orthodontic treatment can feel daunting – especially if they feel self-conscious about wearing braces. However, thanks to modern advancements in orthodontic technology, discreet and sophisticated options are now available.
From clear aligners to ceramic braces, these options work subtly and effectively to improve your smile without compromising your appearance.

Metal Braces

First off, let’s start with the good ol’ traditional metal braces. Metal braces are a tried-and-true method for straightening teeth, and they work by applying constant pressure to gently shift teeth into the desired position. They are also highly customizable, allowing for precise adjustments to achieve the best possible results.

Clear Braces

Clear ceramic braces are a game-changer for adult patients who want to improve their smile without the look of metal braces. These braces work by using clear brackets that are nearly invisible. The brackets are made of a high-tech composite material that is quite strong and will not easily stain or discolor over time

Invisalign is a cutting-edge orthodontic treatment perfect for patients who want to straighten their teeth without brackets attached to them. The clear, removable aligners work by gradually shifting your teeth into the desired position as you wear one set after another.

Adult patients are especially suited for Invisalign because it’s discreet and convenient. Unlike traditional braces, there are no food restrictions or complicated hygiene routines. You simply remove the aligners when you eat or brush your teeth, then put them back in when you’re done.

Invisalign Teen/First

The Invisalign family has a product designed to meet the specific needs and challenges of teenagers. Invisalign Teen uses the same clear custom-made aligners to straighten your teen’s smile. Invisalign First is a new method for early treatment of problems like excessively spaced teeth, crossbites, protruding teeth, crowding, and deep bites. Patients and parents love them because they don’t need extra appointments for pokey wires or broken brackets. Oral hygiene is a cinch!

In-House Clear Aligners

Dr. Quimby and Dr. Collins create your aligners for you in house. Using 3-D digital imaging and printing, they will make a series of retainers to correct your teeth. It is similar to Invisalign but our doctors are the ones behind the magic. Our in-house aligners have a faster turn around time for many complex cases.

Hybrid Treatment Options

Drs. Quimby and Collins use different types of biomechanics to achieve optimal results. Sometimes this means using both traditional braces and clear aligners to create a healthy and functional smile. We do not let the product dictate our treatment recommendation. Combining both types of biomechanics can often shorten treatment times and add comfort.
