More about clear braces, Lingual braces,and Invisalign.



At Taft Hill Orthodontics, we offer patients Invisalign® treatment as an alternative to traditional braces to straighten their teeth in a way that is both unobtrusive and on their terms. Invisalign® is a system of clear, removable aligners that slowly and gently shift your teeth into their right position while allowing you to eat, drink, brush, and floss normally.

Invisalign Teen®

Invisalign Teen® is an orthodontic treatment that is both comfortable and convenient for youngsters. This cutting-edge tooth-straightening method allows teens to carry on with their typical activities (such as playing musical instruments without difficulty or wearing mouthguards while participating in sports) without interruption. Invisalign Teen® is a fantastic option for patients who qualify for this type of orthodontic treatment because it provides a more discrete technique of teeth straightening that teenagers like.


Lingual Braces

Our patients love Inbrace™ Lingual Braces because they are virtually undetectable when they smile, allowing them to confidently reveal their gorgeous smiles while undergoing treatment. While Invisalign provides similar cosmetic benefits, Inbrace™ Lingual Braces are constantly on and working to provide you with the results you desire. Unlike Invisalign, you won't have to remove and clean transparent aligners every time you eat. You also don't have to be concerned about misplacing or losing them.
