Straightening Your Smile

Dr. Richard Williams and Dr. Nathan Hamman can successfully treat many dental issues for your child or yourself.

By pairing state-of-the-art technology with our understanding of the movement and growth of the teeth and jaws, our doctors can successfully treat a variety of dental issues, including:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Protruding teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Impacted teeth

Metal Braces & More

Most patients we treat at Williams & Hamman Orthodontics choose traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth.

Metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment, but you have other options, too.

After your first free consultation, Dr. Williams or Dr. Hamman will talk to you about which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.

Fixed Vs. Removable Appliances

At Williams & Hamman Orthodontics, we believe patients should be well-informed when it comes to their treatment.

It’s important to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances.

Fixed appliances, like braces, are attached to your teeth and aren’t taken off until you complete your treatment.

Removable appliances, like Invisalign’s aligner system, are worn about 20-22 hours a day but can be taken off easily.

Besides the obvious differences, our doctors use Invisalign aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems.

At Williams & Hamman Orthodontics, we generally use fixed appliances for comprehensive and serious and treatment.
