Orthodontics

It's a whole new world when it comes to straightening your teeth and Apple Dentistry is there for you, supporting all stages of orthodontia. Dr. Gary Core is committed to providing an orthodontic solution that is right for the client. He takes time to make sure that your orthodontic course is guided by your best interests, not by the bottom line. Dr. Core has accepted clients that other practitioners have refused, because he cares about every individual client. In an effort to always stay sharp on orthodontic methods, Dr. Core can be found at national orthodontic conferences many times during the year.

Invisalign

Invisalign is a system that allows us to gradually straighten teeth using a series of clear plastic aligners that are changed out every two weeks for about a year. The aligners are removable, virtually invisible, and comfortable. Contact us to set up a no-cost evaluation to see if you're a candidate for Invisalign.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces have a color and texture similar to natural teeth, achieving a blend that doesn't draw attention. The ceramic bracket material is tough and stain resistant.

Damon System

What makes the Damon System different?

  1. Passive self-ligating braces that are much more gentle to teeth.
  2. High-technology wires that move teeth much faster and require far fewer adjustments.
  3. A new clinically proven treatment approach that aligns the teeth and enhances facial aesthetics — usually without extractions.

Traditional Orthodontics

Traditional braces remain the lowest priced option for those seeking orthodontics. The course of treatment varies depending on the age of the client. Sometimes the need for braces can even be averted with arch expanders when caught early in children. At Apple Dentistry, we're well equipped to perform quality, personalized orthodontics for everyone from children to teens to adults.

Questions About Braces

I need braces but hate the look of them. What can you do for me?
There are 2 orthodontic alternatives for those who want to avoid metal braces. The first is ceramic braces that are tooth color and blend into the the teeth becomming virtually invisible. The second is a system called Invisalign that allows us to gradually straighten teeth using a series of clear plastic aligners that are changed out every two weeks for about a year. The aligners are removable, virtually invisible, and comfortable. Contact us to set up a no-cost evaluation and we'll be able to tell you if Invisalign is an option for you.

Can I afford braces?
Our office offers a free orthodontic evaluation at which time we can determine the treatment time and cost. We offer a no-interest payment plan to make this process more affordable. There are orthodontic options for a variety of budgets.

Isn't having straight teeth just a cosmetic issue?
This is a common misconception. In addition to the cosmetic issues, misaligned teeth and jaws can contribute to one's risk for tooth decay, gum disease, tooth grinding (pain and damage), TMJ (jaw joint problems), and even headaches. Dr. Core evaluates these problems in children, adolescents, and adults. He helps you come to a decision about the optimal method and timing of orthodontic treatment for your unique situation.

Another dentist told me that orthodontics can't help me. Is it worth getting a second opinion?
We offer free consultations. Many of our patients have reported a similar story, only to find out upon examination that orthodontic treatment would help. The truth is that some practitioners only want to do the quick and easy orthodontic cases so that they can rush to the next customer. At Apple Dentistry, we care about all of our patients and believe in giving you personalized care, even if you require more time for your treatment to complete.
