Spring aligners are designed to correct slightly misaligned front teeth. They are also good for preventing slight misalignment in the road. Invisible retainers are custom made to fit your smile and your smile only, and keep your smile from becoming misaligned. Palatal expanders are the first phase in straightening a smile. It can also be used to ease crowding, making your top and bottom teeth fit better together. Lower expanders help traditional braces be more effective by treating crowding.

Tongue cribs, geared more to our younger patients, prevents the misalignment caused by the tongue pressing against the front teeth. The crib will prevent the tongue from pushing against the front teeth, eliminating the misalignment. Thumb cribs prevent our younger patients from sucking their thumbs, which misaligns their teeth.
