Clear and Metal Braces

Everyone deserves a smile that they love, and your alignment journey should make you feel confident from start to finish (even with braces). Treat even the most complex orthodontic cases with smile-straightening solutions designed with comfort, care, and confidence in mind. Whether you need metal braces, clear braces, or lingual braces, we want you to look and feel your best from start to finish – so that aligning your look, lifestyle, and smile can be simpler than ever.

Invisalign® Clear Aligners

With Invisalign®, transform your smile, adjust your bite, and correct jaw positions! Perfect for patients of all ages, Customized for your unique smile needs, Invisalign® clear aligners are the virtually invisible way to improve alignment without drawing attention to your treatment. Additionally, because there are no wires to change or appliances that can poke or break, it is much easier for even the littlest kids to handle and requires fewer visits than braces. Busy mom approved!

Additional Services

At aligned. Orthodontics, we understand that abnormal jaw alignment isn’t just about crooked teeth; it can lead to a range of health issues, from airway and breathing concerns to various other dental problems. Our specialized orthodontic services focus not only on straightening teeth but also on addressing these underlying issues. By correcting alignment, we aim to improve overall health, providing comprehensive care that goes beyond aesthetics. Explore our additional treatment offerings below.


Expanders widen the upper jaw and nasal passageways for more room for the teeth and better breathing.

Jaw Surgery

Jaw surgery addresses idealizing the jaw structure so that the airway, face, bite, and smile are all in alignment with their ideal and healthiest position. It usually requires about 12 months of orthodontics prior to the surgery and another 9-12 months of orthodontics after surgery.

Sleep Apnea/Airway

From birth, the development of the jaws and airway can be negatively impacted by long-term, and often irreversible, health problems. From four years of age to the late seventies, there are options that we can help with in either completely eliminating or lessening airway problems. Learn More

Frequently Asked Ortho Questions

We’ve collected some of the most common orthodontic questions (and their answers) here. If you’re wondering when to see an orthodontist (or whether you’re too old for braces), we cover these important alignment questions and more! Don’t see what you’re looking for? Don’t worry – just give us a call and we’ll be happy to help.


Your teeth, entire facial structures, and airway can be impacted by orthodontic treatment. Choosing to go to an Orthodontic Specialist who is Board Certified means that they went to four years of undergrad, four years of dental school, two to three years of an accredited orthodontic residency, and then went through the American Board of Orthodontics’ credentialing process that requires the completion of peer-developed, externally validated written and clinical examination. A Board Certified Orthodontist has reached the highest level of achievement by pursuing additional voluntary education and ongoing self-assessment.


At our practice, we like to see children at five because we want to catch any airway and jaw structure problems early. If no orthodontics is needed, we will continue to see your child back once a year to observe their growth.


For those who can benefit from orthodontics, it’s never too late for orthodontic treatment. An increasing number of adults are taking advantage of the lifelong benefits of orthodontic care, choosing to spend the rest of their lives with an attractive, healthy smile and the confidence that it brings. At aligned. Orthodontics, we are experts in adult aesthetic options, from Invisalign to clear and lingual braces. You are never too old to enhance your bite and smile.

How do teeth move?

Light pressure is applied to the teeth over time by using a variety of orthodontic appliances, causing movement. The most common hardware are braces, or brackets, attached to the teeth and connected by an archwire, which is periodically changed to apply different amounts of pressure to teeth. Younger patients may wear headgear, elastics, a positioner, or a retainer during their orthodontic journey.

If I have braces, do I still need regular dental checkups?

Yes! In fact, it’s even more important for orthodontic patients to visit their dentist. With braces, food can be caught in places your toothbrush can’t reach, creating the perfect environment for bacteria to build up – leading to cavities, gingivitis, and gum disease.

Do I need to brush my teeth more often if I have braces?

With braces, you should brush your teeth at least three times a day to keep your teeth, gums, and mouth healthy and clean. Brushing regularly will help remove any food caught between your braces. You should also floss daily to get between your braces where your brush isn’t able to reach.
