Transform Your Smile and Increase Your Confidence with Orthodontics

A beautiful, straight smile can improve your quality of life. It may seem like a dramatic statement but we see it every day. Patients come in with gaps in their teeth or overcrowding and feel embarrassed about the way they look. In some cases, they have also lost functionality of their smile as well. If you are unhappy with your smile, Dr. Timothy Pfister offers orthodontic options to suit everyone from teens to adults. Issues that can be corrected include:

  • Over bite
  • Under bite
  • Crowding
  • Excessive spacing
  • Open bite
  • Cross bite

Conventional Braces and Invisalign®

We offer two types of orthodontics, traditional braces and Invisalign®. With traditional orthodontics, brackets are bonded to your teeth and wires are used to guide the teeth into their desired position. Brackets can be made in different colors and materials but are typically metal or a tooth colored plastic. While they are very effective, many adults prefer not to be seen with metal braces.

We Offer Nearly Invisible Solutions to Straighten Your Teeth

Invisalign offers an alternative to braces. With this system, clear aligners are created to bring your teeth into position over time. The benefits of Invisalign include:

  • Nearly invisible
  • Comfortable aligners do not irritate the gums
  • No special brushing or flossing techniques required
  • Ability to eat whatever you want
  • Removable

With both options, Dr. Pfister uses advanced technology like Joint Vibration Analysis (JVA), T-scans, and EMG imaging to track stability and ensure long term results.

Our Google Patient Review

I first learned of Dr. Pfister 10 years ago when I was looking for an orthodontist for my daughter. He did a beautiful job so naturally when it came time for my son’s braces I went to him. He has become our family dentist. He and his staff are very friendly and professional. I would recommend his practice to anyone.
