Invisalign

Invisalign is a series of clear, removable retainers, custom designed by our doctors, that straighten teeth just like braces. In most cases, Invisalign can be used to achieve the same (or better) results than traditional braces. Using our advanced 3-D scanner, patients are able to get Invisalign treatment without ever taking gooey impressions. In addition, the 3-D scanner allows for better aligner fit and more precise treatment results

Invisalign Teen

Invisalign Teen is a great option for busy teens who care more about their active lifestyles than their orthodontic treatment. With a series of custom-designed aligners that gradually straighten the teeth, the aligners are smooth and practically invisible. This allows teens to achieve a beautiful life-long smile without interfering with sports, musical instruments, or any of the inconveniences of conventional braces.

Braces

Our orthodontists use only the most advanced braces technologies and most precise techniques. Not only do we offer metal braces, we also offer clear braces for more difficult cases when aesthetics is a concern. Are colors your thing? No problem! We have lots of different colors to choose from, whether you are supporting your favorite team or seeking fashion-forward flare?

Early Treatment

According to the American Association of Orthodontics and the American Dental Association, children should visit the orthodontist by the age of seven. Most often, our doctors will choose to defer treatment until much later in the child’s life, but occasionally, interceptive treatment is needed to avoid serious dental problems. As always, our doctors are conservative with their treatment planning and provide all growth and development observation appointments at no cost.

Your Family Orthodontist
  • My daughter just had her braces put on today by Hansen OrthoDontic Specialists. We consulted with them about two months ago, along with a couple other area offices. We decided to go to Hansen for every reason you can imaging, and I'm so very glad we chose them.

    Tim Terrono
  • From my first Invisalign visit to my last, Dr. Hansen and her entire staff have made myself and my family feel like nothing less than family. They go out of there way to make you feel comfortable and make sure you understand exactly what's going on.

    Amy Farmer McClure
  • I just finished my Invisalign braces with Dr. Hansen, and my smile looks great. All three of my kids had Dr. Hansen for their braces, with great outcomes and experiences. So when I needed braces as an adult, I naturally went to Dr. Hansen as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does orthodontics cost?

First, the consultations are totally complimentary. You never have to worry about paying for orthodontic treatment until active treatment is recommended. Just like any medical or dental treatment, the total investment can vary depending on the severity of the case and the treatments and appliances involved. However, because of our flexible financing arrangements and our high value treatment, finances are rarely an obstacle for achieving a beautiful smile from our team.

How frequently do I come for appointments?

We are proud to be innovators in treatment efficiency. Our doctors know your time is valuable and maximize the effectiveness of each visit. We have completed complete orthodontic treatments in as few as four visits. With our Invisalign patients, we even offer digital appointments so that you don't even have to leave your house!

Is all orthodontic treatment the same?

Some people may view straight teeth like a commodity. However, most people don't realize that there are important differences between orthodontists. Does the practice offer 3D scanning and impressionless treatment? Is the doctor board certified by their peers for excellent clinical results?
