Comprehensive Orthodontic Treatment

Most patients are ready for comprehensive orthodontic treatment when all of their primary teeth have exfoliated. At Somerville Orthodontics, we provide comprehensive care for adolescents, teenagers and adults using standard braces, ceramic/clear braces or Invisalign/clear aligners. Because every patient is unique, we offer a detailed patient specific treatment plan to address all of your concerns. Contact us to schedule your complimentary consultation.

Interceptive/Early Phase Orthodontic Treatment

At Somerville Orthodontics, we provide effective and efficient interceptive treatment to correct developing malocclusions, including crossbite, underbite and overbite. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends each child to have an initial orthodontic evaluation prior to the age of 7. Many patients can wait until most or all of their primary teeth have exfoliated before starting orthodontic treatment. In certain situations, however, it is necessary and beneficial to intervene at an earlier period of dental and skeletal development

Treatment Techniques


Aligner therapy, such as with Invisalign is a technique that utilizes a series of custom aligners to straighten teeth and create beautiful smiles. The aligners are clear and nearly invisible, and do not limit patients from enjoying certain foods during treatment. The removable nature of the aligners also allows for easier brushing, flossing and oral hygiene. At Somerville Orthodontics, we provide clear aligner treatment to adolescents, teenagers and adults as an alternative to braces.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are clear or tooth colored, and can be worn by patients of any age, who are looking for less noticeable orthodontic appliances. The translucent nature of ceramic braces offers a major esthetic advantage compared to traditional metal braces, giving our patients even more reason to smile.

Metal Braces

Metal braces have undergone a transformation over the past several decades. They are made of stainless steel and are much smaller and more comfortable compared to the braces you or your parents may have previously worn. Metal brackets are the most common type of orthodontic appliance worn by teenagers, and they remain an economical and effective way to achieve a gorgeous smile and healthy bite.
