Pain? What Pain?


Whether you’re suffering from a sore jaw or worried about the pain of braces, Alpan Orthodontics is the right place for you.

One of the biggest benefits of being a digital orthodontic practice is that the technology we work with often equates to more confidence during treatment, a reduced number of visits (adjustments), a superior treatment outcome, and less pain for our patients.

Less Pain

Unlike traditional “twin” brackets, passive self-ligating brackets (PSL) use light forces to move teeth instead of active forces that rely on friction to straighten teeth.  PSL brackets are also smaller, making them more comfortable and less noticeable. Alpan Orthodontics was one of the first practices to adopt The Damon System with Insignia® and patients are often surprised by how little pain they experience.

Invisalign offers patients more comfort than traditional braces. Invisalign is a clear choice when you don’t want anything noticeable.

Products like Propel and AcceleDent have been known to also reduce discomfort and reduce overall treatment time.
