Orthodontic treatment has never been easier, more comfortable or more stylish for today’s active teenagers!

Dr. Gautam offers several treatment options, including metal braces, clear braces, Invisalign Teen, and lingual braces (hidden behind the teeth).


Invisalign Teen

Invisalign Teen is a popular treatment option that involves wearing a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually move your teeth without wires or brackets.  Each aligner has an inconspicuous Blue Dot Wear Indicator.  The indicator helps Dr. Gautam determine whether the patient is ready to move on to the next set of aligners in their treatment program.  Invisalign Teen is a comfortable, affordable, and effective way to straighten teeth.  Teens do not have to avoid any foods while in treatment because the aligners are removed prior to eating.  We see less stains on teeth because it is easier to keep the teeth clean, easier then braces. Invisalign Teen is very effective when patients are compliant with the program.  That means wearing aligners at least 22 hours each day and following all of Dr. Gautam’s guidelines.  Without compliance, the program will not work that well.


Lingual Braces

Incognito orthodontic braces are lingual braces – braces behind teeth, making them unnoticeable. These unique braces are created using state-of-the-art technology and are 100 percent customized to the shape of each individual patient’s teeth and dental situation. Incognito braces have the unique prescription that Dr. Gautam creates for each patient built-in to ensure each patient gets results specific to individual needs. Incognito braces provide efficient, effective tooth movement and great esthetics. Incognito braces are 100% Customized, as unique as the people who wear them.

Damon 3

Damon braces are a system of passive, self-ligating braces that eliminate the need for elastic or metal “ties”. With Damon tie-less braces you can experience treatment without tightening.

Light high-technology shape-memory wires move teeth faster and require fewer adjustments.

The Damon System is a clinically-proven treatment approach that aligns your teeth and enhances your facial aesthetics—usually without extractions or rapid palatal expanders.  Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably. Smaller than traditional brackets, Damon brackets are designed to be discreet, comfortable and easy to keep clean. Without the elastic ties which attract and collect plaque, Damon braces make dental hygiene easy during treatment.  Treatment time is usually shorter than traditional braces.


Damon Clear

Damon Clear is part of the innovative Damon System, which combines tieless brackets and high technology archwires that are clinically proven to move teeth fast and comfortably with spectacular smile and facial results. For the more image-conscious, Damon Clear is comprised of clear brackets situated on the most visible teeth to deliver a discrete treatment experience with results that go beyond straight teeth. Treatment is extremely effective, and everyone is a candidate for the Damon Clear system of braces. Other Clear Braces options are also available at Allura Orthodontics

Metal Braces

Recent improvements in traditional braces have resulted in smaller, stronger, more efficient and less conspicuous braces.  Metal brackets are the most familiar, and traditional braces offer very effective treatment results. We offer a many colors to choose from and there is no additional cost for colors. Colors can be changed at each visit. It can be a lot of fun to change the colors based on what is going in your life, holidays, school events, sports teams etc.
