Meet Dr. Ward

We are a Certified Invisalign® Provider!

Consider Invisalign® treatment to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted – without braces.
A consultation with Dr. Ward can determine if Invisalign® clear aligners are right for you.

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners made with 3D computer imaging technology. Not only are the aligners nearly invisible, but they are also removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are easy – just pop out your aligner and get on with your usual oral care routine!

Aligners have many benefits including comfort, no need for tightening, no metal brackets, and a simple treatment plan. Most patients looking for cosmetic orthodontic treatment use Invisalign® successfully over the course of 12-18 months.

Invisalign Teen®

It used to be that Invisalign® could only be used on adults. This is no longer the case! Now we have Invisalign Teen®, a series of clear Invisalign® aligners created just for teenagers. These aligners work similarly to those used by adults, however, Invisalign Teen® takes the growing teenager into account.

Most teenagers worry about the maintenance and look of braces; they want to be able to eat popcorn at the movies and avoid having metal in their mouth. All of these worries disappear with Invisalign Teen®. If your child is getting braces for cosmetic reasons or fixing a bite issue, then the Invisalign Teen® process might just be right for them.
