At Ancaster Orthodontics, we strive to create beautiful smiles at any age. Adult patients have a variety of options available to them from traditional Silver or Clear braces to Invisalign treatment (series of clear, removable aligners). Please contact our office to discuss which option is suitable for you.
Both Silver "Mini" braces or Clear "Radiance" braces can be used to straighten the teeth. Their small size and smooth contours provide maximum patient comfort during the straightening process. Contact our office for your complimentary consultation with our specialist. No referral is necessary.
Invisalign (Clear Alternative to Braces)
Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your orthodontist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You simply pop in a new set of aligners approximately every 2 weeks, until your treatment is complete and you achieve the confident smile that you've always wanted. The best part about the whole process is that most people won't even know you're straigtening your teeth. Book a complimentary consultation with Dr. Melissa Sander to see if you are a candidate!

Surgical-orthodontic treatment involves collaboration between the patient's dentist, oral surgeon and orthodontist. This type of treatment is sometimes necessary to correct large jaw discrepancies.
