The options for orthodontics in Norfolk, MA make it possible for patients to achieve straight smiles without brackets and wires.

Invisalign® and Smart Moves Clear Braces

Using clear aligners in Norfolk, we can gently nudge teeth into proper alignment. In some cases, small attachments will be placed on teeth to assist with moving them in the right direction. Attachments are little tooth-colored "buttons" that work with the aligners to assist with moving your teeth more efficiently.

Inman Aligners

Inman Aligners look like a retainer and are removable. This treatment options focuses only on moving the front teeth to give your smile a more esthetic appearance.

All of our removable braces options make it possible to eat the foods you enjoy and keep teeth clean without any special tools or flossers. You can also take them out (briefly) for special events and occasions when you want your smile to look its very best.

Retainer Use

No matter which orthodontic option you choose, you will need to wear a retainer as part of your treatment. Otherwise, you risk the chance that your teeth will slowly drift toward their original position. We offer a number of retainer options for your convenience.
