Standard Braces
(Clear & Metal)

Conventional orthodontic treatment involving standard braces (clear or metal) for both children and adults offers the most comprehensive approach to treating more complex issues ranging from crooked teeth to jaw and bite concerns. Dr. Chu’s expertise throughout the orthodontic journey results in a beautifully healthy smile.

Invisalign®

Invisalign® creates beautifully straight teeth without braces by using a series of removable, and comfortable aligners – invisible to your friends, family and coworkers. Because the aligners are removable, you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are much easier. Invisalign® provides a more flexible straight-teeth solution.

Invisalign® Teen

Invisalign® Teen helps teenagers experience the confidence boost of a great smile without the restrictions of traditional metal braces. The financial investment for this unique treatment is similar to traditional braces. As a bonus, Invisalign® Teen is covered by many major dental insurance policies.

Benefits of Orthodontics

Increased Confidence

An attractive smile increases self-esteem, confidence and overall appearance. Whether it is for you or your child, it is never too late to achieve a beautifully straight smile that you will want to share for a lifetime.

Lifelong Oral health

Orthodontically corrected teeth lead to better lifelong oral health. They are easier to clean and less prone to chipping and decay. Most importantly, it also reduces the chance of gingivitis and gum disease.

At what age should my child see an Orthodontist?

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends a check-up with an orthodontic specialist no later than age 7. Interceptive orthodontic treatment around this time can help direct proper tooth positioning and/or jaw growth, eliminating or simplifying the need for later treatment. Early orthodontic evaluation will give your child their best opportunity for a healthy, beautiful smile.

Complimentary Consultation

An orthodontic consultation with Dr. Chu is free and informative. As a board-certified orthodontist, he is trained to spot potential concerns with future jaw issues or emerging teeth. Dr. Chu will take the necessary diagnostic records to create a personalized treatment plan specifically designed for you or your child.

In certain instances, early treatment may prevent more serious problems from developing and may make treatment at a later age unnecessary or less complicated.

Early treatment gives Dr. Chu the opportunity to:

  • Guide jaw growth
  • Lower the risk of trauma to protruded front teeth
  • Correct harmful oral habits
  • Improve the function and health of your child's bite
  • Improve appearance
