Imagine a braces treatment that doesn’t use wires or metal brackets, a treatment that is virtually pain free and doesn’t require you to change your current lifestyle. With Invisalign you can straighten your teeth, and experience the benefits of a great smile, without having to deal with a mouth full of metal! Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable, comfortable aligners that straighten teeth in less time than traditional braces.

What is dentofacial orthopedics? Many patients wonder what it means when their orthodontist specializes in dentofacial orthopedics. This specialization means that your doctor has training and experience in working with the management of tooth movement (orthodontics) as well as the guidance of facial growth and development (dentofacial orthopedics), which usually occurs during childhood. Did you know that Dr. Romani did two extra years of specialty training after her four years of dental school to become a specialist in the movement of teeth? When moving teeth, make sure that you see an orthodontist.
Orthodontics is designed to reposition and straighten teeth, but in some cases, surgical orthodontics may be needed to correct more severe jaw irregularities. Surgical orthodontics is used to straighten the jaw into alignment, often improving a patient’s ability to chew, speak, and breathe. Braces are often worn in conjunction with orthognathic surgery to make sure the teeth stay in the proper position as well.
