Invisalign Clear Aligners

One of the most popular forms of treatment at our office is Invisalign clear aligners which uses a series of clear aligners created specifically for your teeth. Unlike traditional braces that use wires and brackets to straighten your teeth, Invisalign is virtually undetectable to the naked eye. With Invisalign, there is no irritation to the gum and they can be removed for aesthetic reasons for short periods of time. Invisalign also promotes great dental hygiene since brushing and flossing is much easier while in Invisalign treatment. Also our Invisalign patients are able to enjoy any type of food without worrying about appliance breakage.

Dr. Bhagia is an Elite Preferred Provider of Invisalign, which means that he has achieved the highest level of experience with the Invisalign system, and is among top 1% of Invisalign providers in the entire country. His level of expertise in treating greater difficulty level cases is much more extensive than a normal Invisalign provider.

Clear Braces

Clear braces are made out of a strong material and very similar to metal braces. The materials these brackets are made of tooth colored and are just as strong as metal, and can be used to treat nearly all of the same cases.

Clear braces are an even greater solution for adults or teens who are looking for orthodontic options that blend in with their teeth and aren’t as obvious as traditional metal braces. Patients also report less irritation of the gums when compared to metal brackets.

Self Ligating Metal Braces

Self-ligating braces utilize an orthodontic bracket using a sliding-door technology known as "self-ligation" which allows the wire to easily slide back and forth within the bracket. There is no need for elastic or steel ties with these brackets. This technology creates less friction and results in greater comfort during treatment for you as the patient. Also wearing self-ligating braces can often reduce both the amount of time in treatment and the total number of adjustments that will usually need to be performed.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces work by discreetly placing the bracket behind the teeth and are virtually invisible to others. Lingual braces are custom-fit for your teeth and treatment plan, and each bracket is manufactured for each individual patient. These appliances are well suited for adults, who may worry about the aesthetic nature of regular metal braces.
