For ultimate camouflage, tray or aligner systems offer a modern straightening method. Designed with sophisticated software and 3D digital models of your teeth, a series of clear plastic trays are made. Medical-grade plastic without wires, metal, springs, or rubber bands gently moves your teeth into place. Gradual pressure on specific teeth with each aligner means less discomfort and, in many cases, shortened treatment times. Your provider dispenses several sets of aligners at a time, allowing you to change to a new one at home every two weeks.
Removable trays can be set aside for short periods allowing normal eating and cleaning. Enjoying an apple without the intrusion of brackets and wires works well for many patients. And the smooth plastic surface offers a comfort level to the tongue and cheeks unequaled by other forms of straightening.
Committing to consistent wear, at least 22 hours each day, helps ensure the success of your treatment. While clear aligners work extremely well for adults, a responsible teen can be a candidate too. And adults of every age have discovered the perks of straight teeth with aligners.

Something For Everyone
While aligner treatment works for 90% of straightening cases, some tooth movements may not be possible. Or you may prefer the security of fixed braces. Today’s orthodontics offer more choices than ever. Dr. Sharma and Dr. Baidwan can help you discover the path to a straighter smile.
You may discuss adding whitening to your plan, removing years of yellow stain accumulation. In some cases, the beauty of porcelain lifts a straight smile to another level or may even offer an alternative to orthodontics.
The smile you’ve always dreamed of may be closer than you think with flexible payment options and more insurance plans choosing to cover clear aligners as an acceptable method of orthodontic treatment. Check with our office today for more information.
PROPEL Accelerated Orthodontic Treatment
For most patients, straight teeth mean a terrific smile. But did you know that properly aligned teeth are healthier than misaligned teeth? Overlapped, crooked, or rotated teeth create a daily cleaning challenge. Food and bacterial plaque accumulate slowly in the tiny spaces that your toothbrush and floss can’t reach. The acidic toxins that seep out of the bacterial sludge can lead to cavities and inflamed gums. Helping even a couple straggling teeth find their proper place can leave you with a healthier mouth. And the faster you achieve a straighter smile, the better. That’s why we use PROPEL Accelerated Orthodontic Treatment.
When gentle pressure is applied to teeth, they begin to move. Some bone cells around the teeth start to disappear, and new ones begin to form. This back-and-forth cellular process allows teeth to move from one position to another. But straightening of your teeth takes time due to this slow bone remodeling.
PROPEL offers an exciting enhancement to orthodontic treatment. By using a small, handheld device around the teeth, we encourage the bone to change significantly faster than average. This accelerates tooth movement, and can reduce treatment time by half.
Orthodontics involves teeth straightening and jaw alignment, combining beauty and function. Helping you reach your desired final smile as quickly as possible is our goal.
