Comprehensive Orthodontics involves moving teeth and their roots into

their ideal functional and esthetic position as well as guiding the developing jaws.  It is ideally suited to address developmental issues. Cosmetic orthodontics like Invisalign or Six Month Smiles, seeks to address limited tooth position problems to achieve a cosmetic result primarily. This can in turn aid developmental problems, but is

only intended to improve esthetics. Dr. Nichols has completed extensive training for both of these systems.

● Invisalign utilizes clear aligners to systematically reposition teeth over time.    The aligners can be removed while eating and easily cleaned.

● 6 Month Smiles Orthodontics utilizes clear bonded brackets and white wires to cosmetically move teeth into a desired esthetic position in a short amount of time.

Both systems are effective at repositioning teeth and offer various benefits over traditional “braces”. They can often move teeth in much less time and for less cost than 2 years of metal bracket braces. If you are an adult and interested in closing that space or achieving the smile you have always wanted, please visit us for a consultation and we would be happy to show the possibilities these techniques can offer.
