Straighten teeth quickly & discreetly
At Spring Creek Dentistry, we understand the hesitancy many patients face when deciding to straighten their teeth. Thankfully, with advances in modern orthodontics, we are now able to straighten teeth faster, and more discreetly and ever before. We believe everyone deserves a straight, beautiful smile they can be proud of – if you think you could benefit from a straighter smile, check out our orthodontic options below.
If you want to straighten your teeth, but don’t want to put your appearance, confidence, or your life on hold with traditional metal braces, Invisalign® might be a fantastic option for you! Invisalign® has truly revolutionized the way we think about teeth straightening. Invisalign® uses a series of removable, clear plastic aligners that gently shift teeth into their desired position.
Patients love Invisalign® because not only are the aligners removable to allow you to continue to enjoy your favorite foods and maintain optimum oral hygiene, but they’re virtually invisible to the naked eye! No one will even know you’re straightening your teeth – all they will see is beautiful results! Whether or not you tell them it’s Invisalign® is up to you.
If you are not a candidate for Invisalign® – maybe you require significant or bite alteration – we also offer traditional metal braces. This is the most tried, true, and effective way to straighten your teeth. While metal braces may not be the most aesthetically pleasing, the benefits of straight teeth are all the same – straight teeth are more attractive, boost confidence, are easier to keep clean and healthy. Orthodontics can also help patients with bite alignment problems that may cause TMJ or jaw joint problems.
Propel® Accelerated Orthodontics
Do you wish you could achieve the straight, beautiful smile of your dreams without the lengthy treatment time? Enter Propel® Accelerated Orthodontics. Propel® is a revolutionary device used in addition to either Invisalign® or traditional braces to help minimize the length of treatment and get you smiling in no time.
Propel® Accelerated Orthodontics uses a small hand-held appliance to perforate the gums and “traumatize” the bones of the teeth, which increases the rate of bone remodeling, thus accelerating the orthodontic process. This is a safe and effective way to drastically reduce orthodontic treatment times, so patients can achieve their desired results faster than ever before!

With the iTero® Element™, we can capture high resolution detailed 3D images of your mouth to create a digital model that’s faster, more precise, and more patient-friendly than traditional impressions of the past.
