Invisalign Platinum Provider
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments.
You wear each set of aligners for about one week, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to their final positions. You’ll visit us about once every eight weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time varies from case to case depending on your specific need.
Self-ligating braces use a specialized clip in place of elastics to help the archwire guide teeth into place. These clips help reduce the amount of pressure being placed on the tooth and require fewer adjustments because there are no elastics to replace.

Life with Braces
For the first day or so, stick to soft foods, such as soup, noodles, eggs, yogurt, grilled cheese, and mashed potatoes. Avoid tough meats, hard breads, and raw vegetables. Before long, you’ll be able to bite a cucumber again. But you’ll need to protect your orthodontic appliances when you eat for as long as you’re wearing braces.
Foods to Avoid
Chewy foods: bagels, hard rolls, licorice
Crunchy foods: popcorn, ice, chips
Sticky foods: caramels, gum
Hard foods: nuts, candy
Two Phase Treatment Options
If you are worried about something that you see developing with your child, the first thing you want to do is ask your regular pediatric dentist. They will most likely refer you to an Orthodontist to better evaluate the problem and offer a reasonable treatment plan and solution.
