Orthodontic Solutions

Excellent alternatives to traditional metal braces

In addition to looking fantastic, straighter teeth promote better periodontal health and can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

If you don’t want to wear metal braces but crave a beautiful smile, clear aligners, such as CandidPro Clear Aligners and Invisalign, are an ideal solution for many patients. The barely-noticeable aligners are removable, so flossing and brushing are not affected, making it easy to maintain your routine hygiene.

Dr. Dority uses state-of-the-art imaging to create a system of clear, removable aligners customized to you. As we replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move little by little, until they have straightened to their final position, leaving you with a stunning smile.

We provide a range of customized treatments. We offer Accelerated Invisalign, which will give you great results in only three to four months. We also offer CandidPro Clear Aligners for cases where we need to widen the arches and up-right the teeth. This treatment typically takes six to twelve months. Lastly, sometimes patients need to be treated first with a palate expander before moving to clear aligners. This third option usually involves around eighteen months of active treatment (six with a palate expander and twelve with clear aligners). Both CandidPro Clear Aligners and the palate expansion plan help patients who are experiencing airway issues.

Airway Orthodontics

Airway orthodontics is an exciting area of dentistry that protects and improves the airway’s health. It focuses on palate expansion to bring the jaw and tongue to its proper resting place so the airway is open and happy. This can improve daytime and nighttime breathing as well as positively affect the aesthetics and symmetry of your face and posture. In addition to airway orthodontics, we also offer sleep guards that can greatly improve patients’ nighttime breathing issues.
