With Invisalign removable aligners, for example, you can remove your aligners to eat, brush, floss or attend important meetings. The aligners will still rapidly straighten your teeth. Because Dr. Alborzi has helped hundreds of patients get results with Invisalign, she can use this system to get results even in difficult cases.
With the Damon Brace system, Dr. Alborzi can use small, clear brackets to move your teeth and widen your jaw. This very effective treatment, which will help even crowded smiles, has such a positive effect on patients' jaw lines that many adult patients happily refer to it as the "Damon Bracelift!'
Faster treatment with 3D Imaging
With advanced Ortho-Cad 3D Imaging technology, Dr. Alborzi can plan your new smile with exact precision, reducing your treatment time significantly.

A popular alternative to braces Dr. Alborzi offers is the Invisalign "invisible" appliance, which is made of clear plastic and is barely detectable. The Invisalign system straightens the teeth using a series of clear, custom, removable aligners. Each aligner gradually shifts your teeth until the final alignment Dr. Alborzi prescribed is attained.
As an Elite Provider, Dr. Alborzi is one of the few orthodontists in the area with extensive experience using Invisalign and she is an Invisalign Elite Provider. She has successfully treated many types of conditions with various levels of severity, including patients who had been told that they were not candidates for Invisalign.

Using Damon Braces, Dr. Alborzi can treat many conditions including overcrowding without the need for extractions or headgear. Adults are pleased to find that Damon Braces have small, discreet brackets, and a typically shorter treatment time by an average of six months!
Many of Dr. Alborzi's adult patients have experienced what is being called the Damon ‘bracelift” due to the youthful appearance and dramatic transformations in their faces after treatment. Because the system creates more room in the mouth and actually widens the smile, Damon patients see a noticeable difference and improved facial structure.
