At Granite Coast Orthodontics, we specialize in orthodontic treatment. Braces are used to align and straighten teeth in order to not only improve appearance, but to also improve form and function by correcting malocclusions and other imperfections of the teeth and jaws. Having braces is not just about improving your smile; it’s also about improving your overall dental health!
With the advancement of dental technology, there are many new treatment options, techniques and products available to help correct orthodontic issues. These new technologies have vastly improved both the efficiency of orthodontic treatment and the overall orthodontic patient experience. Metal braces made from stainless steel brackets and wires remain a popular choice for braces and are very effective. Virtually invisible, clear braces are popular with patients who seek the effective results of traditional braces without the look of metal.
Your first visit will begin with a consultation with a consultation with Dr. Doug to review the best treatment alternatives for your orthodontic care. Our team will be explain the treatment process and will be happy to address any questions you may have regarding your treatment plan.
