Orthodontic Treatments

We specialize in providing orthodontic care for kids, teens and adults. We offer a range of services to help achieve a beautiful and healthy smile. Our team of experienced orthodontists is dedicated to providing personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient's specific needs. Whether you or your child require braces, Invisalign, or other orthodontic treatments, we are here to help you every step of the way.



Our braces treatment is designed to correct misaligned teeth and improve your bite. With the latest advancements in orthodontic technology, we offer a variety of braces options, including traditional metal braces, ceramic braces, and lingual braces. Our orthodontists will assess your dental condition and recommend the most suitable braces for you.



Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional braces. These clear aligners are virtually invisible and can be easily removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. Our Invisalign treatment involves a series of custom-made aligners that gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. Enjoy the benefits of a straighter smile without the hassle of metal braces.



After completing your orthodontic treatment, we provide retainers to help maintain the alignment of your teeth. Retainers are essential for preventing your teeth from shifting back to their original position. Our orthodontists will guide you on how to wear and care for your retainers to ensure long-lasting results.

Transformed Smiles, Happy Patients

“Working with Dr. Scott and his staff at McCranels Orthodontics for the last 8 years has been a wonderful experience for our family. We came here when my first son needed braces about 8 years ago. I followed suit shortly thereafter and went with Invisalign treatment after Dr. Scott evaluated my case. I had lower crowding on the bottom and significant jaw problems and he worked hard to make sure that we got a great result. It feels like a family when you come to McCranels Orthodontics. We love it here!”
