SO offers orthodontic treatment for patients of all ages.
Children should be evaluated by our office at around age seven. Orthodontic treatment may not be necessary right away, but we'll work together to determine the right treatment. We also love treating adults - come in at any age!
Dr. Semco is trained in a wide range of Orthodontic treatment types including metal braces, pure monocrystalline super clear sapphire braces and Invisalign. We'll evaluate whether early-phase orthodontics, two-phase orthodontics, surgical orthodontics, TAD treatment or dentofacial orthopedics will be the best way to get you the results you want.
Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen®
Invisalign and a few similar technologies use clear aligners to slowly move your teeth - usually without brackets. You wear the aligners day and night and change them every 1 - 2 weeks. For many cases, Invisalign® is a great option. We are certified in Invisalign® for both teens and adults.
Ceramic and Super Clear Sapphire Braces
If you're not a candidate for Invisalign or don't want the responsibility of having aligners, we can look at ceramic or pure monocrystalline super clear sapphire brackets. These brackets get the same results as classic metal brackets but are clear and thus much less noticeable.
Traditional Metal Braces (Silver or Gold)
Go the more traditional route with our silver or gold braces. Although gold is less noticeable, silver is a nice option as well. Don't forget, you can pick whatever color ties you want to go on the braces!
