For orthodontics we do not have regular brackets for that I refer you to an orthodontist, but we use Invisalign for non brackets that their retainers I most people are familiar with Invisalign. They're trays that will change the teeth slowly and you could have five trays trays more than 10 trays, so depending upon how much movement you need. The trays can be done in a relatively short period of time at different price breaks depending upon the extent of the treatment. if it's just a very very minor tooth movement that we can do in the office with our own trays so that we don't even have to send out to Invisalign. it's just a single rotation or something that you want to have corrected a little in and out or a little bit moving the tooth one way or the other, but the big thing is making a retainer and that we also do in the office and that's something that can also be helpful as a cushioning for your bite the most critical part of that is making sure that the bite is stable so that it's less likely to relapse and that's a follow up that we do that I think is you know may be missed by some people because if the tooth is hitting a little bit harder on one side and the other the tooth is it is going to move so we try to catch those before that happens the other thing that we do is we try to on we we will sometimes do Invisalign in addition to doing a cap work because if we do it that way we can limit the amount of cutting of the tooth possibly even cutting the tooth into the nerve and needing a root canal so sometimes doing it in conjunction with laminates with Invisalign or binding with Invisalign can be a very aesthetic and conservative thing to do
Invisalign offers many benefits when compared to traditional Orthodontics solutions. First, the clear aligner trays are practically invisible, so no one even has to know you are straightening your teeth! It’s also:
- More comfortable, since there are no wires to irritate your mouth.
- More convenient, since you can remove your clear aligners for eating and cleaning.
- Faster, with an average Invisalign treatment time of 12 months for adults. Invisalign Express, which focuses only on the teeth that show when you smile, is even faster.

Get a Fast Smile Fix With Invisalign Aligners
The industry-leading solution for correcting crooked teeth without traditional braces, Invisalign is metal-free, nickel-free, and mercury-free. We offer two options:
- Invisalign Express
Both use digital technology to customize your orthodontic care. You’ll get a series of clear custom dental aligners, similar to mouthguards. You wear them for at least 20 hours per day, for two weeks at a time. Then you move to the next aligner in the series. With the Restorative and Implant Dentistry team overseeing your care, you can have an aligned smile in as little as three to six months for Invisalign Express or 12 months for Invisalign.
Make Your First Orthodontic Appointment
At your first orthodontic appointment, your dentist will examine your teeth and take digital X-rays or review any recent X-rays. We’ll use this information to see if Invisalign aligners are a good choice for you and, if so, to plan your treatment. We’ll also take impressions to create your Invisalign aligners. Dr. Slootsky or Dr. Baez will review your options and help you select the solution that will give you the results you want.
Space Maintainers Help Your Smile
In addition to offering Invisalign, your dentist can place a space maintainer to keep a space open between your teeth so they don’t shift into the gap. We sometimes use them to preparare for dental implant placement, too.
