Straight teeth and a confident smile make a great first impression, especially for kids and teens. Having straight teeth can also improve your overall health because straight teeth are easier to brush and floss. Orthodontic treatment can even correct a misaligned bite in certain cases, which is one of the main causes of TMJ disorder and chronic jaw pain.
It’s never too late to have the smile of your dreams! No matter what age you are, Dr. Kunjumon will develop a customized orthodontic treatment plan that will have you on your way to a straighter smile in no time.
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces currently used in orthodontics. Although traditional braces get a bad rap, the techniques and materials have come a long way in recent years. These days, traditional braces are made of a light nickel-titanium blend, so they’re smaller, more comfortable, and more attractive. You can even change up the color of your ties at each follow-up appointment! Who says braces can’t be fun?
Do you want the dramatic results of traditional braces in less time? Ask Dr. Kunjumon about Six Month Smiles® accelerated braces! The revolutionary Six Month Smiles system can give you noticeably straighter teeth in an average of 6–9 months, so you could be showing off a new smile before your next dental cleaning.
Six Month Smiles braces are subtler than traditional braces because they feature tooth-colored brackets that are hardly noticeable. They utilize high-tech wires that hold their shape better than conventional wires. Because Six Month Smiles cosmetic braces are placed only on the teeth that show when you smile, the treatment is usually faster and more comfortable, too!
Concerned about the cost of orthodontics? Because the treatment time for Six Month Smiles is so much shorter than traditional braces, the cost is much more affordable. Plus, we offer flexible financing options, including monthly payment plans, to help you fit a straighter smile into your budget!

For patients who don’t want metal bars and brackets interfering with their busy lives, we offer Invisalign aligner therapy. Invisalign is an excellent alternative to braces for adults and older teens who have slightly crowded, crooked, or widely-spaced teeth.
Using a series of custom-made aligners that are changed every two weeks, Invisalign gently and gradually repositions your teeth to their perfect position. The aligners are comfortable against your gums and cheeks, and they can even be removed so you can eat and brush your teeth as you normally would. Because the Invisalign aligners are made from a transparent plastic material, they’re hardly noticeable. People might not even know you’re wearing braces until you tell them!
If you think invisible braces sound tailor-made to your schedule and lifestyle, schedule a consultation with Dr. Kunjumon and get started today!
