We offer a range of orthodontic treatments, including:
We utilize the smartclip appliance by 3M in our office. This unique bracket system uses technology known as "self-ligation" that allows the archwire to slide freely back and forth through the individual braces. This creates less friction which results in greater comfort for the patient and faster tooth movements. In addition, SmartClip™ brackets can reduce overall treatment time, decrease the total number of adjustments that are needed during a typical orthodontic treatment and can extend the interval between adjustments to nearly twice that of conventional braces.
Clarity type brackets are perfect for orthodontic patients wanting to camouflage the appearance of braces while still enjoying all the powerful functionality that traditional braces provide to optimally straighten teeth. Made of the same material as porcelain veneers and crowns, their translucent color closely matches the natural color of your teeth and offers the same performance as metal braces. Clarity braces are now also available with the patented SmartClip™ technology from 3M, uniting superior esthetics and functionality in a single brace system.
Invisalign® Clear Aligners
Invisalign aligners offer many adult and teen patients a revolutionary alternative to straightening their teeth. Without the use of metal brackets or wires, Invisalign® uses a series of clear, removable and comfortable aligners that work to straighten your teeth.
Essix® Clear Aligners
Clear aligners can also be used for less complex orthodontic treatment plans, saving time and money over traditional aligner systems. Tooth straightening can often be accomplished in three aligners or less using the Essix® technology.
C ™ Clear Retainers
Creating a beautiful smile isn't enough. That smile must be preserved long-term to enjoy the full benefits that it provides to patients. We use C+ ™ clear retainers to help our patients keep their teeth straight indefinitely and with a nearly invisible look that others won't notice. They can also double as bleaching trays to get your beautiful smile the whitest it can be.
We realize that each patient’s case is unique and will help you customize your treatment to ensure your functional and esthetic needs are met. Regardless of the system you choose, your results will surprise and delight you and our team at Hawkins Orthodontics will be at your side every step of the way helping you reach your treatment goals. The sooner you start, the longer you'll have to enjoy this investment in yourself. We look forward to meeting you soon and helping you create your new smile!
