Clear Aligners

Invisalign treatment is the most advanced clear aligner system in the world, backed by more than two decades of innovation. Unlike braces, Invisalign clear aligners are removable and virtually invisible. There are no wires and brackets, so you don’t need to change the way you brush and floss.

We utilize specialized appliances to address and correct a variety of dental concerns. There are primarily two categories of these appliances. Growth modification appliances aim to harness and guide the natural growth of the jaw to achieve optimal alignment and structure. Habit breaking appliances are designed to assist patients in overcoming detrimental oral habits that may be affecting their dental health and alignment.

Surgical Orthopedics

Surgical orthodontics, also known as orthognathic surgery, is a type of orthodontic treatment used to correct severe cases, including bad bites, jaw bone abnormalities, and malocclusion. Oral and maxillofacial surgery is one of the nine dental specialties and focuses on treating complex craniofacial cases involving the mouth, jaw, face, and skull. Prior to any surgical orthopedic treatments, we spend approximately a year and a half on alignment, and Dr. Ahrens will work with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon to ensure that if you need surgical orthodontics, you will receive the best care possible.

Surgical orthodontics may be needed when orthodontic treatments alone cannot correct jaw misalignment. Surgical orthodontic treatments are typically reserved for adult patients once their jaw is done growing. After surgery, patients will work with Dr. Ahrens to complete their orthodontic treatments to ensure their teeth have moved to the proper position and create the beautiful, healthy smile they’ve always wanted.
