Invisalign Clear Aligners

Invisalign clear aligners are an alternative method of orthodontic treatment that many people turn to if they want to avoid traditional metal braces. Consisting of clear plastic aligners that are custom-made based on impressions taken of your teeth, they gently shift teeth so that overcrowding, gaps, and bite misalignment are fixed, creating a more beautiful smile while improving your oral and overall health.

Palatal Expanders

When a child’s upper jaw is too narrow, it’s often recommended that they receive a palate expander. This device is designed to gently adjust and widen the jaw so that crowding, bite problems, and other more serious dental problems do not arise throughout adulthood.

This process makes it possible for permanent teeth to move into place accordingly, and it often reduces the amount of time a child will spend wearing braces.

Dr. Mahler and our team will work with you to develop a plan that correlates with your child’s unique needs, making sure that they remain comfortable throughout their visit. We’ll discuss the reason for palate expansion as well as how they work at home. If fixed in place, you will receive a key that will be used to turn the screw that widens the device.
