My family has been going to Czaplicki Family Dentistry for several years now! They've been great with my own adult needs (including TMJ treatment and adult orthodontia), as well as my daughters'. It's great being somewhere that can also treat children and does it with compassion! We love the hygienists and all doctors we've seen over the years but especially Drs. Don and Cathy!View on Google
Czaplicki Family Dentistry is by far my favorite dentistry and I highly recommend coming here for all your dental needs.

The staff here is lovely making me always feel comfortable with every visit. I plan on getting the popular KÕR Teeth Whitening done eventually. I'll update you with my results.View on Google
Orthodontic Treatments We Offer
Traditional Metal Braces
Metal braces are a very effective, efficient treatment for patients of any age, especially when misalignment is severe. For patients with extreme bite issues, rotated teeth, or overcrowding, traditional braces may be the best choice. However, some patients do not like the look or feel of the metal bands, wires, and brackets that are attached to their teeth.
While ceramic braces work the same way as metal ones, they are specifically designed to blend in better with the color of your teeth. This makes them much less visible. For this reason, ceramic braces can be a good option for adult patients and older teens. Like traditional metal braces, ceramic braces rely on arch wires and other hardware to gently apply pressure to align the teeth.
Treatment For Children
Depending on your child's case, our dentist may recommend a two-step treatment starting before they turn 13. The first step is to expand your child's jaw with a dental expansion device while bones are soft, growing, and easy to alter. This 6- to 12-month process can create more room in their mouth for permanent teeth and prevent extractions due to overcrowding. The second step begins in the early teens, with braces applied for the purpose of straightening their adult teeth. The second step of treatment may be shorter than normal thanks to step one.
Invisalign is a popular choice for teens and adults who don't want to wear noticeable metal hardware. These clear plastic aligners can discreetly improve mild to moderate misalignment in about the same length of time as traditional braces. You must wear the virtually invisible aligners for about 22 hours a day. The aligners are easy to remove, so you can eat whatever you want during treatment. You can also brush and floss normally after you remove your Invisalign aligners.
This brand of clear aligners works much like Invisalign. However, ClearCorrect aligners tend to be a bit thinner and lighter, which could make them more comfortable in your mouth than Invisalign aligners. Depending on the ClearCorrect plan you need, the treatment may cost a bit less than Invisalign treatment. Contact our dentists to see if ClearCorrect may be a better orthodontic option for you instead of Invisalign.
