To learn more about any of these, contact us and set up your appointment today.

AcceleDent® Aura

Do you want to improve the look of your smile, but does the thought of spending years in braces seem out of reach? With AcceleDent Aura, you can now speed your tooth movement by up to 50%! Using this fast, safe, and easy-to-use appliance, you'll be finished with your orthodontic treatment and achieve your desired smile faster!

AcceleDent Aura is safe as demonstrated in U.S. clinical trials. Cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration, AcceleDent is only available by prescription from your orthodontist.


The Forsus Fatigue Resistant Device promotes growth in adolescents, helping to eliminate excessive overbites, improve the fit of teeth, and possibly prevent the need for corrective jaw surgery. Your Forsus appliance is installed in one appointment and doesn't require any additional lab work, so you won't have to wait to begin your treatment. There are no daily adjustments to make because the appliance provides a continuous, light force to move your jaw and teeth into their correct positions. It sits in the back of your mouth, so no one will even notice it's there.
