At Reach Orthodontics, we offer effective, comprehensive orthodontic treatments using state-of-the-art technology.

Metal
Self Ligating Braces

Metal, or traditional, braces are the most common type of dental braces used in orthodontic treatment. Metal brackets, durable and more comfortable than ever before, are bonded to the front of each tooth and act as anchors holding the archwire in place. Reach Orthodontics offers In-OvationR, which uses a specialized clip instead of elastics to help move your teeth into the correct position. This clip helps reduce the amount of pressure being placed on your teeth and decreases the number of adjustments because there are no elastics to replace.

Suitable for some patients, clear ceramic braces offer a cosmetic alternative to the metal. The clear brackets are bonded to the front teeth and act as anchors holding the archwire in place. Ceramic braces are slightly less durable than the traditional metal brackets due to the material composition. Reach Orthodontics offers In-OvationC, which uses a specialized clip instead of elastics to help move your teeth into the correct position. This clip helps reduce the amount of pressure being placed on your teeth and decreases the number of adjustments because there are no elastics to replace.

Aligners

Reach Orthodontics offers ClearCorrect, a clear aligner system used to straighten teeth as an alternative to traditional braces. ClearCorrect straightens teeth using a series of clear, custom-made, removable aligners that gradually move teeth a little bit at a time, eventually correcting the teeth and smile to elicit a new, revitalized look.

Minor Movement
Aligners

Attention Adults.  Have you experienced orthodontic relapse or age related tooth movement?  If so, our new digital aligner system may be the ticket for the improved smile you are looking for.  Minor Movement Aligners can be used in certain cases to simply and relatively inexpensively align teeth in situations where there is an overall good bite, but the teeth have become misaligned over time.  Using SuresmileR technology, we are able to design and fabricate aligners systems for minor tooth movements.  Since the technology allows the process to be handled in-house, the cost is reduced compared to other aligner systems.  MMA works best if the alignment can be handled in about 6 sets of aligners.  In addition, our digital technology allow us to offer Hybrid treatment, MMA together with traditional braces for these cases too difficult for MMA treatment alone.
