Orthodontics – Fitchburg, MA
for Your Family
No matter your age, taking care of orthodontic problems is a must, especially if you want to preserve your smile so you can continue enjoying it for years to come. Teeth that are crooked, crowded, gapped and misaligned can increase your risk of developing oral health problems like cavities and gum disease. Bite misalignment can also impact your oral health by causing you to grind and clench your teeth. To provide you with a straight and healthy grin, we offer several custom-tailored options for orthodontics in Fitchburg, MA.

Effective & Fast
Traditional metal braces are a tried and true orthodontic treatment that can fix issues ranging from slight crowding to complex bite misalignments and more. When you come in for treatment, we’ll attach small metal brackets to each of your teeth to hold a piece of your appliance called the archwire. Throughout your treatment, we’ll gradually adjust the wire so it will continue shifting your teeth into their ideal alignment. On average, your treatment will be completed in about 12 to 24 months.
Our self-ligating braces system uses brackets and wires just like traditional orthodontics, but the wires are secured in place with small latches on each bracket instead of rubber bands. This allows them to straighten teeth at a significantly faster rate because there’s not as much friction on the archwire. This specialized orthodontic treatment can also address severe issues that would normally require multiple orthodontic appliances or corrective surgery.
This advanced system uses clear, custom-crafted trays that gently shift your teeth to fix minor to moderate crowding, misalignment, gaps and bite problems. You’ll visit our dental office every six to eight weeks to collect your new series of trays as you go through the treatment. During these appointments, we’ll also examine your mouth to make sure that you're staying on track with your treatment timeline. You will likely complete the process in about eight and 14 months.
Have you avoided getting orthodontics because you didn't want to dedicate the time that it requires? No matter what appliance you choose, it can normally take between 12 and 24 months to address your issues. That’s why we offer AcceleDent, which is an FDA-cleared device that uses gentle micro vibrations to speed up the process. While you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment, you’ll use your AcceleDent device for 20 minutes each day. It has been shown to shorten treatment with braces by up to 50 percent!
