Begin Early

Dr. Bohman believes that there is a benefit to early treatment of certain orthodontic problems. We routinely see patients between 7-10 years old to monitor their growth and development. Dr. Bohman will only recommend an early phase of orthodontic treatment when necessary. By monitoring the development of our younger patient’s smiles, we are more successful in treating them. Orthodontics should be age specific to each individual patient.

In addition to our free consultation, if your child is not ready for braces, we will monitor their growth and development until the time is right at no charge!

Braces

Throughout the history of orthodontics, there have been many advancements in the technology behind creating a confident, beautiful smile. Many of the biggest changes have occurred in the last 20 years! Dr. Bohman uses the latest technological advancements in braces, adhesives and diagnostics with proven treatment philosophies to help you achieve your best smile in the shortest time. Just click on the images below for more information on the types of braces that we offer!

Invisalign

Invisalign treatment includes a series of plastic clear aligners that move your teeth through small, incremental movements. You’ll wear a customized set of aligners and change to new ones every week or two until eventually your teeth are straight and beautiful. Many adults LOVE this option as you can remove them to eat or for special speaking/social events.

Unlike braces, Invisalign has no metal bands or wires. Invisalign is effective for a wide range of smiles. We'll create your individual treatment plan using Invisalign's clear, custom-molded aligners.

Invisalign Teen

Now teens have an alternative to metal braces in their yearbook photos or social media profiles with Invisalign ® Teen! Invisalign Teen is the clear way to straighten teeth without metal braces by using clear aligners. Aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means that we can straighten teeth without anyone knowing. You can still eat and drink what you want! Also, you can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth. There are no wires, metal, or brackets to cause mouth abrasions.

Invisalign has used feedback from leading orthodontists, parents and teens to create a custom-designed Invisalign system just right for the needs of teenagers. With blue-to-clear color-changing indicators, we can check to see how much the aligners are being worn. Plus you can get up to 6 free replacement aligners if some get lost or broken. How is that for peace of mind? Invisalign Teen is the perfect teeth-straightening system for today’s teens’ busy lifestyles.

Retention

When we removed your braces or when are have worn your last Invisalign aligner, the retention stage of treatment begins! The supervised retention phase of treatment lasts for approximately 12 months. Your final results depend on your retainers, so follow through with the hard work that you have put in so far.

Appliances

In order to create your perfect smile, often appliances can be used alone or in conjunction with braces. Alone they can often prepare you for a shorter time in braces or used with braces can speed treatment time and improve overall results. Your ultimate transformation can only be reached if the patient consistently utilizes their appliances such as wearing rubber bands, headgear, etc.

Dr. Bohman often utilizes the following types of appliances to improve your smile:
