If you’ve been hesitant about getting straighter teeth because you don’t like the look or maintenance with traditional braces, then Invisalign® Aligner Therapy could be for you. The treatment is a subtle, comfortable way to fix crooked teeth because it utilizes clear, custom-made aligner trays that are removable and better still, hardly noticeable.
Dr. Stroope has advanced training with this type of orthodontic treatment, and over her years of experience, she has handled even the most severe cases. With her expertise, your dream smile can become a reality!
Invisalign Express is the ideal choice for those dealing with minor crowding and spacing or easy-to-correct orthodontic issues. This option works just like traditional Invisalign, except the treatment process uses fewer aligners and takes just a few months to reach the desired end result. With Invisalign Express, you can have straighter teeth before your next cleaning!
For those of you requiring major straightening to fix an overbite, underbite, crowding, or gaps, braces are an affordable way to get your desired results. Modern braces are both more comfortable and easier to maintain these days, and we offer ceramic, lingual, and metal options so you can choose how you want to achieve a straight, healthy smile.

Why should I get orthodontics?
One of the main reasons people get orthodontic treatment is so they can have a straighter smile, but that’s not the only benefit. Fixing your bite can help remedy speech impediments, jaw pain, tooth grinding, and difficulty chewing. Correcting the
alignment of your teeth also makes them easier to clean so you lessen your chance of problems like tooth decay and gum disease.
Will I have to wear a retainer when my orthodontic treatment is done?
It takes time for your teeth to settle into their new positions, and as we get older, it’s natural for our teeth to shift. Wearing a retainer is an important part of maintaining those perfectly straight teeth you worked so hard to get! We’ll go over a timeline for how long you should wear your retainer after treatment to ensure you maintain those great-looking results.
How much does orthodontic care cost?
The cost of your orthodontic care depends on which treatment you are getting, the amount of movement necessary, and the length of your treatment time. When you come in for an orthodontic consultation, we can give you a more accurate estimate. Don’t forget that Farmington Dental and Orthodontics accepts dental insurance and has payment plans available!
