Dental technology is improving all the time and you’ll always get the most comfortable and effective treatments at Laidlaw Orthodontics.

Dr. Laidlaw and the team at Laidlaw Orthodontics are dedicated to providing you with the most up-to-date treatment options available.

Straightening Your Smile

Dr. Laidlaw can successfully treat many dental issues for your child or yourself.

By pairing state-of-the-art technology with our understanding of the movement and growth of the teeth and jaws, Dr. Laidlaw can successfully treat many dental issues, like:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Protruding teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Impacted teeth

Metal Braces & More

Most patients we treat at Laidlaw Orthodontics choose traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth.

Metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment, but you have other options, too. We also offer metal lingual braces that are bonded to the back of the teeth for a completely unnoticeable treatment option.

After your first free consultation, Dr. Laidlaw will talk to you about which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.

Fixed Vs. Removable Appliances

At Laidlaw Orthodontics, we believe patients should be well-informed when it comes to their treatment.

It’s important to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances. Fixed appliances, like braces, are attached to your teeth and aren’t taken off until you complete your treatment.

Removable appliances, like Invisalign’s aligner system, are worn about 20-22 hours a day but can be taken off easily.

Besides the obvious differences, Dr. Laidlaw uses Invisalign aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems.

At Laidlaw Orthodontics, we generally use fixed appliances for comprehensive and serious and treatment.
