Most patients who enter our Fort Collins office typically know they need some kind of orthodontic treatment, but are indecisive on whether they need traditional metal braces or the removable, virtually invisible alternative known as Invisalign.

Whether or not one treatment is recommended over another will depend on a variety of factors, habits and individual preferences.

Many of our teen patients also have friends who are wearing braces, so most of their peers are tuned in to the importance of orthodontic treatment.
