Types of Orthodontic Treatment

During your initial consultation, Dr. Ryan Hodges will review all your treatment options with you and create a customized treatment plan to meet your unique needs. There are a number of different orthodontic treatments to meet your needs as well as the demands of your lifestyle, and we will work one-on-one with you to ensure that you receive the high-quality care you need and are fully informed about all aspects of your treatment.

Among the most common treatment options are braces and Invisalign® clear aligners.

Traditional braces are made of metal, but this treatment is also available with “clear” brackets made of tooth-colored ceramic.


Invisalign® Clear Aligners

girl with bracesDr. Hodges is the leading Invisalign provider in Newbury Park and Moorpark, California! This system of clear aligners is an alternative to braces and works using a series of custom-made aligners to move your teeth into their proper positions. Because these aligners are made of clear plastic, they are nearly invisible and allow you to retain a natural-looking smile throughout your treatment. Hodges Orthodontics offers Invisalign aligners for the same cost as braces, so you can choose the treatment option that is best for you.
