Orthodontics should be done by a specialist. The results of bite correction orthodontic treatment can be dramatic beautiful smiles, improved dental health and an enhanced quality of life for many people of all ages. Dr. Nisson does a thorough diagnosis which involves mounting each and every patient’s dental casts on a special instrument known as an articulator. Information from the articulator is transferred to the x-rays. This results in a more accurate diagnosis and plan of treatment.
Typically, full braces in the early teens or later lasts 18-24 months, depending on age and the severity of the orthodontic problem. We are committed to delivering the best possible service in order for you to achieve your orthodontic objectives.
Dr. Nisson also offers Invisalign. Invisalign can be an excellent way to straighten teeth. Dr. Nisson will carefully evaluateyour situation and let you know if Invisalign is right for you!

Orthodontic Treatment Timing

Prior to beginning full braces or Invisalign therapy, it is almost always important to have the twelve-year molars fully erupted. These teeth will rarely be in the correct alignment when orthodontic treatment does not include them from the beginning of treatment.
Dr. Nisson provides orthodontic treatment for adults, adolescents and children.We follow the guidelines established by the American Association of Orthodontists by recommending that an orthodontic evaluation take place at age 7 for all children. This early evaluation can help to determine the best time to begin any necessary treatment. While most problems are best left until the twelve-year molars have fully erupted, there are certain situations which are definitely benefited by beginning treatment when patients have a mix of permanent teeth and adult teeth (ages 8-11).
