Dental technology is improving all the time, and you’ll always get the most comfortable and effective treatments at Wiesemann Orthodontics.

Dr. Wiesemann and the team at Wiesemann Orthodontics are dedicated to providing you with the most up-to-date treatment options available.

Experienced Invisalign Providers

As a Platinum Level Invisalign provider, Dr. Wiesemann has unique experience treating both big and little smiles without using regular braces.

Many patients think Invisalign is not an option for them, however, after learning more about the treatment, they are able to achieve excellent results with a shoter time investment than regular braces.

Which Treatment Is Right for You?

At your first free consultation, Dr. Wiesemann will assess your teeth, gums, and jaw and determine whether your orthodontic issues are minor, moderate, or severe.

After this exam, he will talk to you about your smile goals and your budget. You’ll hear our honest advice about which treatments will help correct your oral issues.

Straightening Your Smile

Dr. Wiesemann can successfully treat many dental issues for your child or yourself.

By pairing state-of-the-art technology with our understanding of the movement and growth of the teeth and jaws, Dr. Wiesemann can successfully treat many dental issues, like:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Protruding teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Impacted teeth

Metal Braces & Invisalign

Many patients we treat at Wiesemann Orthodontics choose traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth.

Metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment, but you have other options, too.

After your first free consultation, Dr. Wiesemann will talk to you about which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.

 

Fixed vs. Removable Appliances

We think it’s important for all our Wiesemann Orthodontics patients to understand their treatment.

You’ll need to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances. Fixed appliances, like braces, are attached to your teeth and aren’t taken off until you complete your treatment.

Removable appliances are worn about 20-22 hours a day but can be taken off whenever you need.

Besides the obvious differences, Dr. Wiesemann uses Invisalign aligners or our in-house custom clear aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems.

At Wiesemann Orthodontics, we generally use fixed appliances for comprehensive and serious and treatment.
