By Appointment Only
Young patients (or those young at heart) have the option of choosing traditional brackets, Stars, Hearts, Flowers, Soccer balls or Footballs. You may also choose the color of the ties that secure the wire to the bracket. Choose a neutral color or bright colors to stand out and make a statement. Choose new colors each time your wire is changed. Coordinate with holidays or choose school colors to show your team spirit. These removable, clear "aligners" work for teens and adults, eliminating the need for fixed braces and wires in your mouth. Dr. Dahar is a leading provider of this new technology. It's a great alternative to traditional treatment.Invisalign is the clear way to straighten your teeth using a series of clear, removable aligners instead of braces. You can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing you are having orthodontic treatment. You can still eat and drink anything you want. You can also brush and floss regularly to maintain healthy gums and teeth, and there are no wires or braces to irritate your gums or lips.
