Do I Need Braces?

Dental braces or aligners are key solutions for misaligned bites and malocclusions. They can correct various orthodontic problems to give you an even and straighter smile. While reasons for braces vary for every patient, common reasons you may require dental braces:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Unwanted gaps between teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite

You may also want braces to enhance the appeal of your smile and boost your confidence. Regardless of your reasons, our friendly team will evaluate your dental situation and craft a treatment plan just for you.

Invisalign For Teens and Adults

Invisalign For Teens and Adults

Invisalign treatment is a modern alternative to traditional metal braces. Instead of using brackets and wires to reposition your teeth, Invisalign involves removable clear plastic trays designed to fit snugly over your teeth. The aligners apply gentle pressure on your teeth and gradually shift them to their ideal position.


Invisalign trays are also convenient as you can remove them when eating or cleaning your teething. The aligners consist of thin clear plastic, making them practically invisible, thus preserving the appeal of your smile during treatment. If you are embarrassed about the idea of wearing braces as an adult, Invisalign may be an ideal choice since it allows you to straighten your smile discreetly and won't disrupt your normal lifestyle or routine.

You need to wear the custom trays for at least 22 hours each day for the best results. You'll transition to the next aligners every two weeks to progress your treatment until you achieve optimal alignment. Our team will work with you throughout your treatment and evaluate your progress every 4-6 weeks.

Since Invisalign requires discipline and commitment, we recommend our Edison Invisalign treatment to adults and responsible teens only. In the case of teens, we'll discuss the compliance requirements with the teen and parents to ensure you understand it and promote successful treatment. We provide Invisalign on a case-by-case basis depending on the severity of your alignment

Phase I and II Orthodontic Treatment For Young Patients

We offer Phase I and Phase II orthodontic treatments for kids to ensure your child's bite is straight and functional. Our orthodontic treatments are helpful for creating a stable foundation for your child's jaw and bite development. It also encourages permanent teeth to emerge correctly.

Phase I Orthodontic Treatment: Also known as early interceptive treatment, our Phase I treatment is available for kids between 6-10 years. The treatment focuses on jaw development and bite alignment. Our dentist examines your kid's jaws and teeth for potential orthodontic problems, and will create a personalized treatment plan as required. Not every child will need Phase I treatment, and our dentist will discuss with you whether it would be better to intervene or monitor the situation as their bite develops.

Our Phase I treatment options include a variety of tools, including palate expanders, retainers, and spacers. During Phase I treatment, we focus on jaw development and bite growth to prevent issues like crowding when permanent teeth emerge. By treating orthodontic issues early, your child's permanent teeth have a better chance of emerging properly.

Phase II Orthodontic Treatment: We offer Phase 2 treatment to kids starting around 11-12 years old once most of their permanent teeth have emerged. The treatment usually consists of traditional dental braces, and the length of treatment varies with the complexity of their bite. While some kids may require shorter treatment periods, others may need to wear braces for up to 2-3 years to complete the treatment.

We provide treatment for mild to moderate and some advanced cases. For children and teens whose bite situation is more severe, we can refer you to a trusted orthodontist who can provide the expert treatment they need.
