Invisalign®

No metal brackets or wires required.

Welcome to the discreet and metal-free alternative to traditional braces! Invisalign®’s innovative technology works by gently straightening your teeth using clear, comfortable, removable aligners.

Dr. Fredal uses an iTero 3D scanner to capture detailed models of your teeth for increased precision and a better fit (no more goopy impressions necessary!) The high-resolution software also offers an Outcome Simulator so you can get a preview of your new smile before treatment even starts! Also, due to their discreet, removable nature, you can enjoy your favorite foods and socialize with full confidence.

It is a common misconception that clear aligners can only correct certain types of bites. Dr. Fredal has undergone training as an orthodontic specialist, which allows him to utilize Invisalign® to its full potential. He is able to leverage tooth attachments and specialized accessories allowing him to treat more challenging cases, previously thought only possible with braces

Damon Braces

Why choose this modern option?

  • Innovative Design: Damon Braces are unique as they offer self-ligating passive brackets with lightweight shape-memory wires. These brackets move more freely, efficiently, and comfortably, while reducing the amount of pressure on your teeth.
  • Faster Treatment, Fewer Visits: These braces offer the convenience of faster treatment times, reduced chair time, and fewer office visits.
  • Fewer Extractions: Traditional braces often require the removal of healthy teeth, but with Damon Braces there is a reduced need for extractions or expanders.
  • Increased Comfort: The advanced Damon System uses technology to gently move your teeth into place, helping you enjoy more comfort and improved oral health.
  • Improved Hygiene: Damon uses tieless brackets, which means no rubber bands are required to hold the brackets closed, and there is no need for tightening. What’s more, elastic ties often attract plaque, but since Damon Braces don’t use these ties, it promotes cleaner teeth!
The Damon Braces Difference

The Damon System utilizes a patented slide mechanism to connect archwires to the bracket while allowing the wire to move freely. The Damon System reduces friction and improves oral hygiene by eliminating elastic ties.

Traditional Elastic Braces

Traditional braces use elastic ties to hold archwires in place. Unfortunately, elastic ties create friction which can slow treatment down. Elastic ties have also been shown to collect harmful bacteria. 

What Is INBRACE?

You'll See Visible Results In Just a Few Weeks
INBRACE® is a convenient new treatment that improves your smile without anyone knowing. The Smartwire® is applied only by an orthodontist to the back of your teeth, so the entire process is truly hidden. Even though INBRACE is invisible to the rest of the world, you’ll start seeing visible results in just weeks instead of having to wait until your braces are removed.

How INBRACE Works
The Customized Smartwire Moves Your Teeth With GentleForce™ Technology
Example of INBRACE
You'll See Visible Results In Just a Few Weeks
After your case is assessed, we scan your teeth and INBRACE’s advanced computer modeling and AI algorithms determine the most efficient way to improve your smile. Then a custom Smartwire is designed just for you and your unique anatomy.
Example of INBRACE
The INBRACE Solution Is A Game-Changer
  • The Smartwire is applied to the back of your teeth by an orthodontist so it’s invisible to the rest of the world.

  • The unique design allows you to brush & floss normally throughout treatment, so your teeth & gums stay healthy.

  • INBRACE uses GentleForce technology which provides an efficient and comfortable treatment experience.

Airway Orthodontics

Innovative solutions for obstructive sleep apnea.

Airway health is an important aspect of your child’s growth and development. If their airway is constricted you might notice:

  • Reduction in their energy
  • Snoring
  • Teeth grinding
  • Mouth breathing
  • Anxiety/depression
  • Bed-wetting

These symptoms can impact your child’s mood, sleep patterns, and overall behavior.

In addition to comprehensive orthodontics, Dr. Fredal is committed to providing advanced treatment methods for airway dysfunction. At our practice, every patient, regardless of age, undergoes an i-CAT CBCT scan (3D x-ray) to evaluate common symptoms of sleep apnea.

If a child under the age of 12 shows signs of a decreased airway, Dr. Fredal can perform a protocol to improve breathing and overall health.
