Family Orthodontics in Shelby Township, MI
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
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 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.

Innovative solutions for obstructive sleep apnea.

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.
