    • Invisalign. Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic trays to straighten teeth instead of wires and braces. This method is discreet and has versions available for both adults and teens.

  • AcceleDent: At Affiliated Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics we offer AcceleDent-Aura treatments. This small appliance vibrates your teeth to move them into place faster than relying on orthodontist visits alone.
