Teeth-alignment problems are not only a cosmetic concern — they can also lead to oral- and whole health-related issues such as gum disease, tooth decay, difficulty chewing, and chronic headaches. At Riccobene Associates Family Dentistry, our Garner and Cary orthodontists and dentists detect potential alignment issues as early as possible in order to best protect your overall health and quality of life, then identify the best orthodontic solution to treat it.

What Is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that corrects a vast array of dental conditions such as crowding, protruding/poorly spaced teeth, overbites, underbites, and other misalignments. Our orthodontists have extensive experience realigning crooked, overlapping, and gapped teeth using orthodontics, and they can prevent potentially serious problems from occurring.

Riccobene Associates Family Dentistry’s Orthodontics

We offer an advanced and modern approach to aligning teeth.  Our Garner and Cary orthodontic services include:

  • Phase I and Phase II treatment
  • Comprehensive orthodontics for teens and adults
  • Conventional metal braces or self-ligating brackets which can speed up treatment initially
  • Cosmetic approach using tooth-colored braces or clear aligners
  • Surgical orthodontics — for patients whose tooth alignment and jaw position cannot be corrected with orthodontics alone and require a trained surgical specialist to surgically reposition the jaw(s).

Clear Orthodontic Options

Modern-day orthodontics allows us to provide clear, nearly invisible teeth-straightening orthodontic treatments  along with routine, restorative, and cosmetic care. Our orthodontic treatments include:

  • Invisalign®: A series of clear, removable aligners that straighten your teeth over the course of 12 months



What are invisible braces?
We are able to straighten your smile with Invisalign, a tooth-straightening system that is nearly invisible. Our systems use clear materials (i.e. clear brackets and wiring, and removable aligners) that are discreet and comfortable.
