Reclaim your Confidence
Nothing you wear is more important than your smile. If you are unhappy with yours come in for a free consultation for Invisalign. Your smile is full of potential. Dr. Schalk unleashes it.
Traditional orthodontic treatment typically consists of bracket braces; braces use constant, gentle pressure, which over time, move all the teeth at once into their proper positions.
Periodic appointments are needed to check progress adjust the wires as necessary to ensure the braces are moving the teeth properly. Metal braces are still quite common but now options like clear and tooth coloured braces leave everyone looking much more confident.
We want to ensure that together we create the best treatment plan possible for you and your orthodontics, whether that be looking into traditional bracket braces or Invisalign clear aligners.
