Braces offer impressive results when it comes to aligning crooked teeth, correcting jaw problems, preventing overcrowding complications and boosting self-confidence. Depending on the severity of the misalignment, as well as personal preference, we offer a number of options including metal, clear and invisible braces.

When you’re under the continuing care of Dr. Savusalo, you’re receiving one-on-one guidance from a highly skilled professional. Every patient is unique; Dr. Savusalo will be able to detect the subtle adjustments needed to your brackets at each visit to create that perfect, custom smile. She will make sure your case is progressing, as it should when you meet every 5 to 6 weeks throughout your treatment period.

Braces are bonded brackets, arch wires and elastic bands that move crowded or spaced teeth into the proper position for appearance and function. Over a period of time, teeth will shift if constant, gentle pressure is applied. Brackets are bonded to the front surface of each tooth and wires are attached to the brackets with elastic bands. The slight tension on the wire is gently transferred to the bracket through the elastic band.
All ages can benefit from braces, from pre-ortho treatment for children to full braces for teens and adults. It’s becoming more and more common for adults whose teeth may have shifted over the years to realign their smiles with braces.


Dr. Nevins did a thorough review of my medical history and then gave me an exam. We were able to define a first step that made sense. He also put to rest some of the fears that had been caused by the first provider.
