Orthodontic Care


Metal braces are the most common. Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive than ever before. Being made of high-grade stainless steel they are hypo-allergenic and have the design & strength to maneuver teeth in complex situations.


Advanced technology in braces makes treatment more comfortable and less visible. The clear appearance of ceramic braces makes them a popular option for less complex orthodontic treatments.


The Invisalign® system is a set of clear, removable aligners customized by an orthodontist to reposition teeth. More commonly used for minor dental corrections, Invisalign® has developed their product to manage more complex dental malocclusions.

Dr. Karen Hesse, Dr. Paul Major and Dr. Brian Nebbe are certified orthodontists who have completed their Invisalign® Masters Certificate training for complex dental corrections. Ask us if you are a candidate for Invisalign®.

Orthodontic Care

There are many times to start orthodontic treatment. For young children, the ideal age is 8 years for a first examination by an Orthodontist. Scheduling an exam and consultation, prior to the completion of dental development, will ensure timely personalized care.

For young patients, early treatment corrects minor concerns and addresses oral habits, such as thumb sucking, and tongue function.
