What We Do

ORTHODONTICS > What We Do

At Tardy Orthodontics, we believe that everyone deserves to smile confidently regardless of their age. Whether you’re young or just young at heart, we offer several different options to fit your lifestyle and help you find your perfect smile.

Invisalign® and Clear Aligners 

Clear Aligners are a series of custom-made smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic dental appliances. The aligners have programmed tooth movements built into them to guide teeth into a desired position. Tardy Orthodontics is committed to offering innovative clear solutions to those who want to align their teeth but are concerned about wearing braces. Since aligners are removable, you can take them out when it is time to eat, brush or floss your teeth. We offer Invisalign® and SureSmile® for all your aligner needs. SureSmile® provides us with additional more affordable options for easier cases. One example of this would be for someone that didn’t wear their original retainer and as a result has experienced minor tooth movements.

Traditional Metal and Clear Braces 

Metal and Ceramic braces are the most common orthodontic appliances. Both bracket types are bonded to the front surface of the teeth. A thin small wire is placed through the small groove in the brace. The wire and brackets work together to pull the teeth gently into their ideal position.

Expander Appliances

Expanders are dental appliances that are used to create space in the mouth to reduce crowding of the teeth. Expanders are typically used in young children and adolescents during the growing years to gently increase the size of the jaws so that the permanent teeth can fit in a straight manner. Expanders are also commonly used to correct crossbites.
