Did you know straight teeth and a beautiful smile are possible without braces? Consider Invisalign treatment during your consultation with Ries Orthodontics to determine if Invisalign clear aligners are the right choice for you.
As a child grows, their smile grows with them. And even with baby teeth, it may be the perfect time for children ages 6 to 10 to start orthodontic treatment. This is known as Phase 1 treatment.
Invisalign First clear aligner treatment is designed for predictable results and a positive experience while addressing the unique needs of growing children.
Allows us to see our patients weekly and monitor their progress from the privacy of their own home through the DM App. Designed for us to provide consistent contact between appointments thus reducing the overall number of in-office appointments.

Accelerated treatment reduces the discomfort associated with orthodontic treatment while reducing a patient’s time in active treatment. The VPro+ is highly portable and designed with your busy lifestyle in mind. Use for just 5 minutes each day, or as otherwise directed by your doctor, to complement your orthodontic treatment.
More comfortable today than ever before, metal braces are still a viable and traditional approach to care. Made from stainless steel, metal braces align teeth using metal brackets and archwires.
You deserve a beautiful smile. With clear ceramic brackets, you’ll have a lot to smile about! Clarity brackets can give you the same orthodontic results without the need for large, noticeable metal braces. They move teeth with the same efficiency as traditional braces with the aesthetics of translucent ceramic.
Two-phase orthodontic treatment combines tooth straightening with physical, facial changes— resulting in improved functional and aesthetic stability throughout your child’s life.
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a small joint located in front of the ear where the skull and lower jaw meet. These joints allow the lower jaw to move. Signs of Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) include jaw pain, earaches, headaches, trouble opening or closing your mouth, clicking or grating sounds. TMD treatment ranges from minimal dental care to complex surgery.
Orthognathic surgery is a type of orthodontic treatment used to correct severe cases. These issues include bad bites, jaw bone abnormalities, and malocclusion. Patients requiring orthognathic surgery want to ensure they have the best providers to address all of their needs. Dr. Ries will help to select the best team members.
The palatal expander “expands” (or widens) your upper jaw by putting gentle pressure on your upper molars each time an adjustment is made.
Dentofacial Orthopedics, at Dr. Ries, is the process of normalizing the growth of a patient’s bone structure and repairing any imbalances of the face and jaw.
No more messy impressions! An iTero scanner allows Dr. Ries to create a digital impression of your teeth and jaw that you are able to view instantly.
