Invisalign at The Brace Space
The Brace Space has been designated a Diamond Invisalign Provider, the highest designation. Invisalign is used as an alternative to traditional braces, and is custom designed to help guide teeth into proper position. Just like braces, Invisalign uses gradual force with clear aligners to control tooth movement.The aligners are made with a strong plastic material that has been fabricated to fit your mouth. As treatment progresses you switch aligners. Each aligner is a little different, so your teeth move a little more with every change. Aligners are worn for at least 20 hours each day, and you’ll receive a new aligner every two weeks. The length of your treatment depends on the severity of your case, and treatment can take anywhere from six months to two years. Invisalign is a great alternative for patients who want a straighter smile but do not want to wear metal braces, or for patients who have had treatment in the past and want to make minor corrections to their smile.
We offer free consultations because we feel being informed should not have a price tag attached.
Our consultations, which you can book on line from the comfort of your own home, give you a chance to talk with Dr. Davidson and have all your questions answered. Children should first be screened by the age of 7, because if there are any issues that need to be addressed, it is much easier to do it at an early age when the child is still growing. Interceptive orthodontic treatment helps prevent more severe problems later on, and gives our orthodontist control over where the permanent teeth come in by addressing the structure of the jaw and teeth while baby teeth are still in the mouth. By age 7, your child’s mouth has grown and has enough sound structure to know how it will develop as the permanent teeth start to emerge. Information is key, and free at our clinic.
We treat both children and adults, current patients ages 7 to 75!

We offer traditional braces
Traditional metal braces are still the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile. We also use Self ligating braces. Self ligating technology uses integrated clips that are micro-engineered within each bracket to hold arch wires in place. This eliminates the need for traditional rubber ties (ligatures) that can stain and wear out over time. Rubber ligatures are a known bacteria trap. Cleaning your teeth and your braces is easier when you have self-ligating braces. These self-ligating clips also allow the orthodontists and their team to make quicker, easier wire adjustments, and that can mean less time in the chair.
