Orthodontics & Healthy Start


Invisalign LogoDental braces have come a long way – today’s dental braces look, feel and function better than ever. Along with traditional metal braces, there are now a variety of dental braces to fit every need and budget. Clear dental braces use an innovative sliding technology instead of wires and have small, clear brackets that are virtually invisible. Invisible dental braces don’t use brackets at all; they include a customized set of clear plastic aligners that can be removed while eating, drinking, brushing and flossing. If a beautiful, straight smile is what you’re after, you can’t go wrong with dental braces – no matter what your age!

InvisalignWhen it comes to “invisible” braces, Invisalign braces are the absolute gold standard in Superior,CO and across the globe. Unlike traditional dental braces, which use brackets and wires to straighten teeth, Invisalign braces use a custom-made series of clear plastic aligners that are completely removable. The comfort and convenience of Invisalign braces are unbeatable. You can eat whatever you want; you can remove Invisalign braces whenever you need to; and you can brush and floss more effectively. Invisalign braces are effective for patients who have problems with crowding, spacing, crossbites, overbites and underbites.


We use Dental braces to align and straighten your teeth and help to position them with regard to your bite, while also working to improve your dental/ oral health. Braces are often used to correct under-bites, as well as malocclusions, overbites, open bites, deep bites, cross bites, crooked teeth, and various other concerns of the teeth and jaw. Braces can be both cosmetic and/or structural. Dental braces are often used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to help widen the palate or jaws and to otherwise assist in the alignment of the teeth and jaws.

How Does The Healthy Start System Work?

Healthy Start System works with the natural forces of tooth eruption. The removable device guides the erupting teeth into position. In addition, Healthy Start aids in the correct growth and alignment of the lower jaw.

Depending on the age of your child the system uses up to 3 steps:


  1. Habit-Corrector: The habit-corrector eliminates or improves current oral habits.  He or she wears the habit-corrector at night while sleeping. With a design similar to that of a mouth guard, your child will become used to wearing a device. This step lasts about 1-5 months.
  2. Second Phase:  A device customized and sized for your child to wear every night. It aids the incoming teeth into their proper place.  Your child will wear this device for 2-6 months.
  3. Final Phase: The final treatment begins with a device that accommodates incoming adult teeth. It begins when your child has at least 4 permanent teeth. As the adult teeth Healthy Start works to help teeth erupt into proper alignment.
