Early Treatment

Early intervention refers to phase one treatment which has the goal of guiding the patient’s growth to achieve a favorable outcome later in life. Not all children are eligible for early treatment but we recommend getting an orthodontic screening around the age of 7. Children who receive early treatment often benefit from more accurate results and less invasive treatments. The Canadian and American Pediatric Association recommends all kids be seen by an orthodontist by age 7.

Teen Braces

Having braces as a teen feels like a wright of passage. When treating our teens, we focus on finding options that allow them to express their personality while maintaining comfort as a priority. We take into account the teens lifestyle and personality when recommending the treatment plan that we believe will fit them best ranging from discreet clear braces to highly-precise traditional metal braces.

Adult Braces

As an adult, the thought of wearing metal braces may be enough to turn some patients away. However, rest assured that at Impressions Orthodontics, we offer a full range of treatment options to meet your needs. We offer clear ceramic braces, Invisalign clear aligners, lingual braces, and of course an updated version of traditional metal braces.

Metal vs. Clear Braces: Which Is Right for You?

Metal braces are appropriate to treat most orthodontic cases. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. We offer a variety of metal braces including self-ligating brackets (Damon Brackets) that allow a high-level of precision and comfort during treatment. Self-ligating brackets are also available in a clear version (Damon Clear) that offers a more discreet option for older teenager and adult patients.

Surgical Orthodontics

Orthognathic surgery, also known as surgical orthodontics, corrects jaw anomalies to enhance the patient's ability to chew, talk, breathe, and maintain face esthetics. Surgical orthodontics, in other terms, straightens your jaw. Braces or clear aligners are typically used pre and post-surgery to allow the surgeon to optimize your facial esthetics.

Retainers & Relapse

The shifting of teeth back to their original locations after your braces have been removed is referred to as relapse. Your teeth should ideally stay stable following the retention period; nevertheless, there are several circumstances beyond our control. Dr. Nizam will prescribe a retainer after your therapy is finished. A retainer is a device used to keep your teeth in place long enough for the bone surrounding them to solidify.


It is important to protect your smile when participating in sports. Mouthguards protect your teeth and gums from harm. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends wearing a mouthguard if you participate in basketball, boxing, hockey, football, gymnastics, lacrosse, martial arts, racquetball, rugby, track and field, skateboarding, skiing and snowboarding, skydiving, soccer, surfing, volleyball, water polo, weightlifting, or wrestling. Choosing the correct mouthguard is critical; ask us for a recommendation at your next visit!
