Teeth-straightening solutions from the teenage years and beyond
Most children lose their baby teeth by the age of 13. Before they’ve even lost their last few baby teeth and have most of their adult teeth it’s pretty easy to tell where there will be over-crowding or where permanent teeth are coming in crooked. This is the best time to begin orthodontic treatment while they’re still settling in to their permanent adult smile.
As much as we love bringing out the natural beauty of a smile, orthodontic treatment is even more important for their oral health. Misaligned teeth and a crooked bite can be difficult to clean properly, feel uncomfortable and even cause aches and pains. With orthodontic treatment, these issues can be resolved in as little as 6 months.
- An overbite – when the upper teeth sit too far forward.
- Excessive spacing – gaps or spaces between the teeth.
- An underbite – when the lower teeth sit too far forward.
- Crowding – when teeth are overlapping or impossible to floss.
- Crossbite – a bite that doesn’t mesh comfortably.
- Pain - Chronic headaches, jaw pain, or upper back and neck pain.

Orthodontic Treatment Options
There are many different treatment options available depending on the patient’s personal needs and their budget. Here are a few of the options that may be available:
When you hear the word braces, you most likely think of those bulky metal brackets with wires. Modern dental brackets are now smaller, less noticeable, and just as effective as the older bulkier ones. They’re easier to keep clean and much more comfortable.
If you’re looking for braces, we also offer clear brackets that tend to be more popular among our young adult patients. These brackets are designed to combine conventional orthodontics with discretion. At a quick glance, no one will even notice the braces.
Clear aligners, such as Invisalign, have rapidly gained in popularity. A series of custom-made transparent trays gradually shift teeth into their ideal position. They fit snuggly and precisely and can occasionally be removed to eat, to brush and floss like normal, and for the occasional special occasion like a school dance or a class presentation.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Our Clients Have to Say
Very friendly staff, everyone including front desk receptionist, dental hygienist, and the doctor is very knowledgeable... The front desk staff explained to me about my insurance, and directly billed to my insurance company, so I did not have to make my own claims. The cleaning experience was great, the dental hygienist cleaned my teeth very nicely with no pain whatsoever! I had an extraction and filling performed by Dr. Sabri, he explained to me everything before starting the procedure, and performed all procedures without causing me any pain.

I had such a pleasant experience at this office. I was on the hunt for a new dentist when one of my wisdom teeth started to give me some discomfort. I gave this office a shot because it had such great reviews. Dr. Sabri and his staff were amazing from start to finish. The whole procedure was quick! I felt zero discomfort through the whole process and left very happy. I have found my new dentist and will highly recommend it to family and friends.
