Many Adults are Choosing Orthodontic Treatment

At any time in life, orthodontic treatment can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. With the technology we use to make braces more comfortable, invisible, and with shorter completion times, it is easier than ever to choose orthodontic treatment. Our adult patients know that it is never too late to improve one of the greatest, most powerful, most unique assets you’ll ever use each day of your life – your smile.

Dr. Pitner - Braces Treatment Orthodontist



No emergencies from broken braces or wires

We know you are busy and don’t have time for extra problems for your orthodontic treatment. With Invisalign, there are virtually no emergencies and extra trips to see us.


Fewer and less frequent appointments

With Invisalign, Dr. Pitner can virtually monitor your teeth and your progress every week using the Dental Monitoring app on your phone. This means you are getting better care, but with more convenience and fewer appointments in the office. With Dental Monitoring, Dr. Pitner is only as far away as your smartphone!


Less discomfort

With Invisalign, you don’t have bulky brackets that irritate your lips and tongue. And because Invisalign is custom designed for you by Dr. Pitner, the movement is precisely calculated to minimize the soreness of your teeth. Most patients say their teeth are almost never sore!


Easier brushing and no food restrictions

Love popcorn, corn on the cob, or apples? Like to eat sticky candy every now and then? With Invisalign, you can eat whatever you like. Plus brushing and flossing is just as easy as it is now


Replacement aligners at no extra cost

Worried about losing an aligner? Lost aligners happen much less often than people think, but if it does, we will replace it quickly and at no cost.
