Orthodontic Treatments

No matter your age, we offer a variety of orthodontic treatments using the latest technology and methods available. From clear aligners to metal braces and everything in between, we’re here to help.

Choose an option below:

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are a virtually invisible and removable alternative to braces! Our clear aligner treatments make straightening your teeth easier than ever, allowing you to smile with more flexibility and confidence. We’re proud to be a leading provider of Spark and uLab clear aligners in the Hickory area.

Modern braces are a popular choice for a reason! Braces are an efficient, tried-and-true method of aligning your smile. We offer advanced self-ligating braces and cutting-edge custom bracket systems from Stride and Lightforce, designed to streamline treatment by requiring fewer archwire adjustments.

Orthodontic Retainers

Your orthodontic journey doesn’t end when braces come off! Once you finish your active treatment, you’ll need to wear a retainer to preserve and stabilize your beautiful new smile. Retainers help keep your teeth from shifting back to their original positions.

Early Treatment

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children have their first visit with the orthodontist around age 7. Seeing children at this age allows us to catch developing problems early and prevent more extensive treatment later on. Most kids won’t need to be treated until they get older, but for certain problems, early treatment can make a huge difference!

Emergency Orthodontics

Thankfully, true orthodontic emergencies are rare, but we are here to help when problems arise. If you’re experiencing discomfort, or you just need peace of mind, we are always just a phone call away!
