Orthodontics in Temple

There's nothing more stunning than a confident, beautiful smile. Crooked teeth can hinder your appearance and may increase your risk for decay and gum disease. Our dental offices offer orthodontic solutions to bring out the best smiles in patients of all ages.

Invisalign - A Modern Approach to Straightening Teeth

Invisalign is solution that will let you maintain a mature, professional image while perfecting your smile. The system involves a series of clear acrylic aligners that gradually move teeth into their ideal position. The comfortable aligners are easy to clean, can be removed when you eat and allow you to brush and floss your teeth normally for better periodontal health

Our team of dental professionals will take an impression of your teeth and send it to the Invisalign lab where your custom aligners will be fabricated. You'll visit our office every few weeks for progress checks and to pick up your next set of aligners. If you want an esthetic orthodontic solution that delivers fantastic results, Invisalign may be right for you.

Traditional Braces

Traditional braces employ brackets and wires to reposition teeth and correct misaligned bites. Thin wire threaded through a series of brackets exerts gentle pressure to slowly move your teeth. Prior to treatment, we will take an impression of your smile to determine the correct position and tension of the brackets and wires. Dr. Fossum and his team will also check your progress each month and adjust the wires needed.
