Orthodontics – Worcester, MA
Personalized Orthodontic Care for All of Your Loved Ones
Both adults and children can benefit from using orthodontic care to correct their crooked, crowded, gapped, and misaligned teeth. All of these issues can increase your risk for cavities and other oral health problems. Furthermore, a misaligned bite can lead to involuntary grinding of the teeth, resulting in damaged or worn-down enamel. Our dental team at Community Dentists of Worcester can straighten your grin and help you avoid the most severe consequences of orthodontic problems.

Why Choose Community Dentists of Worcester for Orthodontics?
- Patients of All Ages Welcome
- Highly Discreet Invisalign Treatment
- Quick, Effective Self-Ligating Braces
The most complex orthodontic issues – including severe bite misalignment – typically call for time-tested traditional braces. Using a special adhesive, we can attach brackets to each of your teeth so that they can hold an archwire. The pressure from the archwire will slowly shift the teeth toward their proper alignment. You’ll regularly return to our dental office so that we can make the appropriate adjustments to the wire. The treatment typically takes between 12 to 24 months depending on your needs.
Like traditional orthodontics, self-ligating braces move the teeth with brackets and wires. However, instead of using rubber bands, the archwire is attached to the brackets with small latches. This puts less friction on the archwire, and as a result, it takes much less time to straighten the teeth. In many cases, self-ligating braces can be a viable solution for severe orthodontic issues that might otherwise require treatment with multiple appliances or even surgery.
Invisalign Clear Aligners
Many people avoid straightening their teeth and addressing bite problems because they think metal braces are the only solution. Fortunately, that’s no longer the case! Modern Invisalign treatment allows you to address overbite, underbite, crossbite, misalignment, and gaps between teeth with a discreet orthodontic appliance that allows you to maintain your professional image, all while improving your oral health. Every two weeks, you’ll graduate to your next set of trays until you reach your ideal results, being sure to visit our team for regular checkups every six to eight weeks.
Orthodontic treatments can take quite a bit of time, which is a major reason why many patients are reluctant to start them. But thanks to AcceleDent, we can significantly shorten the orthodontic process. AcceleDent is an accessory for your braces that gently vibrates. By using the device for 20 minutes a day, you can speed up the movement of your teeth by as much as 50%, dramatically decreasing the amount of time you spend wearing braces. This treatment is safe for patients of all ages; we’ll let you know if you’re a potential candidate during your initial consultation.
