A series of clear, plastic aligners, the Invisalign system will straighten your mildly misaligned teeth.
Most patients would prefer clear aligners over braces. Three factors need to be considered 1. the additional cost $1,500.  2. will the aligners fix the problem with your teeth (Aligners are good at mild malocclusions but not at severe orthodontic problems) and 3. Will the patient wear the aligners perfectly ?  Without perfect compliance, Invisalign will not work and be a complete waste of your money. At a free initial visit I can review this with you. 

Clear, Ceramic Braces

For patients with aesthetic concerns of metal braces, Dr. Murphy offers ceramic braces. Made of translucent Crystal material, they are most popular with adult patients due to their cosmetic appeal.

Aetna Insurance Policy holders Beware !!!
If you have Aetna insurance, you need to know that an Aetna Pedodontist who takes your insurance may send you to an Orthodontist in the same practice who does not take Aetna Insurance.
If this happens, you will be paying up to $2,000 more for Braces.
Most people assume the orthodontist will take your Aetna and only find out after the records are taken and it is too late.
