How Many Appointments Do I Need Each Year?

Will I Need to Get Braces for Crooked Teeth?

However, there are more subtle and comfortable options as well, including Invisalign. These clear aligners are designed to be virtually unnoticeable inside your mouth as they shift your teeth. If your goal is to maintain your smile’s appearance during treatment, they are likely the best option for you.

What Should I Do About Gum Disease?
