Advanced Orthodontic Solutions

We utilize innovative treatment options, such as semi-transparent clear braces, Damon brackets and virtually invisible Invisalign aligners, to produce better results with fewer visits and shortened treatment times.

In addition to their cosmetic appeal, clear braces have a smooth, rounded shape, which allows for greater patient comfort. Damon brackets feature lighter wires, and lower friction brackets to effectively move teeth, which reduces overall treatment times.
Most suitable for adults and teens, Invisalign clear aligners are popular due to their cosmetic appeal. In addition, they are comfortable, and can straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets, which means no one will notice you are receiving orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign

Invisalign® is the clear way to straighten teeth without braces, using aligners. Aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing; and you can still eat and drink what you want. Also, you can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth; and there are no wires, metal or brackets to cause mouth abrasions.

Many of our patients had never considered traditional braces but are now happily and comfortably improving their smiles with Invisalign®.

What is Invisalign®?

  • Invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces.
  • Series of clear, removable, custom-made Aligners.
  • Uses no metal wires or brackets.Salt lake city invisalign
