Adult and Children’s Orthodontics

We believe that a straight, well-aligned smile can significantly boost confidence and overall dental health.

Comprehensive Orthodontic Care for Adults and Children.

The first step to a beautiful smile is a thorough examination. We will carefully assess your or your child’s mouth, teeth, and jaw structure, using x-rays and teeth impressions to accurately diagnose and plan the treatment. Whether you’re an adult looking to improve your smile or seeking treatment for your child, our team at Ivy Lane Dental is here to provide expert, personalized care.


Many people face orthodontic issues, and at Ivy Lane Dentistry, we are equipped to address a variety of these concerns, including:

  • Overbite: When upper teeth significantly overlap the lower teeth.
  • Underbite: Characterized by lower teeth extending beyond upper teeth.
  • Crowding: Occurs when there isn’t enough space in the jaw for all the teeth, leading to misalignment.
  • Crossbite: Misalignment where upper teeth are closer to the cheek or tongue than the opposing lower teeth.
  • Open Bite: Often a result of thumb-sucking, where upper and lower teeth don’t make contact when biting down.
  • Spacing: Gaps between teeth that can affect the aesthetics of your smile.

Traditional Braces

At Ivy Lane Dentistry, we offer traditional braces made from stainless steel brackets and archwires, designed to gently guide your teeth into the correct alignment. They’re not just effective; they can also be personalized! With a variety of colored rubber bands available, children of all ages can add a splash of color and uniqueness to their smiles. Each adjustment appointment is an opportunity to switch up the colors, keeping the journey to a perfect smile both exciting and personalized.


Invisalign® presents a fantastic, contemporary alternative to traditional braces at Ivy Lane Dentistry. This innovative method allows you to straighten your teeth without the need for metal brackets and wires. Instead, we utilize custom-made plastic trays, known as aligners, which gently guide your teeth into their proper positions. Each aligner is specifically tailored to fit your mouth perfectly, ensuring comfort and minimizing the irritation often associated with conventional braces.
