About Orthodontics

As Dr. Vitkus knows from her previous career as an engineer, orthodontics is very much engineering of the mouth. Orthodontic appliances are made of metal, ceramic or plastic and when used correctly, these appliances place a constant, gentle force on your teeth thereby slowly moving them into proper position. Treatment time varies and can last between one and three years depending on several things including age, treatment method and how minor or severe the case is. A big factor in successful, efficient treatment, is you! The more diligent you are, the more successful and efficient treatment will be! Before beginning treatment, Dr. Vitkus will discuss all of your options with you.

Dr. Vitkus is a certified Invisalign Orthodontist and in addition spends considerable time taking continuing education courses on Invisalign. Invisalign uses a series of customized, clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth opposed to wires and brackets like conventional braces. When you start treatment, you will receive several sets of custom aligners. Each set of aligners are worn about 1 week and are removed only to eat, drink, brush and floss. As you replace each set of aligners with the next set, you teeth move little by little such that over time you will notice big changes in the alignment of your teeth! People choose Invisalign because:

Early Interceptive Treatment


The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that children have an orthodontic screening by age 7. While treatment at this age is not needed in most patients, an early screening allows us to catch things in case it is. Certain types of orthodontic problems can be treated more successful if caught early. Early treatment may be indicated to gain space for permanent teeth, reduce the likelihood of permanent tooth impactions, avoid the need for tooth extractions, adjust the width of the upper or lower dental arches, correct thumb sucking and/or eliminate abnormal swallowing or speech problems. At this initial screening, many times we recognize that while we may benefit from treatment in the future, we are not quite ready to begin at this time. Our no-charge Growth Guidance Program is designed for patients in the 7 to 12 year old range who may need or likely will need treatment in the future. We monitor the need for treatment at 6 to 12 month intervals – these visits are very similar to your initial consultation, we update photographs and x-rays as needed, and discuss changes that have occurred over the past months. Our goal with these appointments is to monitor your child so that we can initiate treatment at the optimal time to achieve the best possible result.




Surgical Orthodontics


Surgical Orthodontics, also known as orthognathic surgery, is a type of treatment used to treat severe cases that can not be corrected with traditional braces or Invisalign alone. In order to receive orthognathic surgery, the jaw must be done growing, this typically occurs in our late teen years. If surgical orthodontics is indicated, Dr. Vitkus will work with both your general dentist and an oral and maxillofacial surgeon to ensure you get the best care possible.
