Aligning with Your Smile Goals
From Invisalign® to traditional metal braces and every service in between, Dr. Wood provides a range of orthodontic care for patients of all ages. As a board-certified orthodontist serving the Rochester, NY area, she knows the importance of creating a treatment plan perfectly fitted to patients’ smile goals. Her orthodontic care goes beyond teeth straightening to incorporate the gums, bite, and facial form, enhancing one’s overall appearance.
A perfectly straight smile is hard not to adore, but a crooked smile is impossible to ignore. Both children and adults can receive the health and esthetic benefits of straighter teeth and an improved bite with orthodontic treatment. Every smile is unique, which is why every treatment plan is custom-designed to meet the individual patient’s needs.
Clear Aligners (Invisalign™)
Clear aligners are the esthetic solution for straighter teeth. These virtually invisible and removable aligners are custom-made for your mouth and place enough pressure on your teeth to move them without the need for brackets and wires. Dr. Wood uses Invisalign® and will work with you to determine the best option for your treatment goals. She will monitor your progress with regularly scheduled appointments until your aligner treatment is complete.
Metal braces are the tried and true orthodontic treatment option. They have the ability to straighten the most severe cases of crooked, over-crowded, and misaligned smiles. Many younger and adolescent patients enjoy customizing their metal braces with colors. We offer both traditional stainless steel brackets (what most people think of when they hear the word “braces”) as well as champagne colored brackets, which offer the durability of metal braces with a more esthetic look.
Clear Ceramic Braces
Clear braces work just like traditional metal braces, but are a more esthetic option for patients who don’t like the look of metal braces. We use Radiance Plus® brackets which, unlike other ceramic braces are truly clear. They blend with the natural color of your teeth, no matter what shade they are, making them one of the most attractive ceramic brackets available.
