creating brighter smiles

Your smile journey starts with a customized treatment plan. We use the most modern technology and treatments available to personalize your care and help you achieve your best smile.

clear aligners

Dr. Mody uses Angel Aligners to provide an esthetic option to best fit your lifestyle. Aligners are comfortable, discreet, and a convenient way to transform your smile. They are customized specifically to your teeth and are an excellent alternative to braces.

the clear aligner process

Step 1: We'll comfortably scan your teeth using our digital scanner to provide accurate digital models of your teeth.

Step 2: Using the Angel Align System, Dr. Mody will customize and digitally plan the movement of your teeth. This step is what makes our process unique.

Step 3: We'll provide your aligners to you and all necessary instructions for your specific treatment.

Step 4: As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently shift into their ideal position.

Step 5: After we’ve completed the treatment, you'll be ready to enjoy your new beautiful smile!

clear braces

Our clear braces at Half Moon Orthodontics are designed to blend in seamlessly with your natural smile. Also known as ceramic braces, they are less noticeable than metal braces, but function identically. They are made of a translucent ceramic material and are an excellent option for our esthetic-minded patients.

metal braces

Our metal braces are sleeker, less noticeable, and more effective than ever before. These brackets are capable of treating difficult cases and a durable solution to any orthodontic issue. They are also a cost-effective option for achieving the smile you desire. At Half Moon Orthodontics, you will find our metal braces to be modern, comfortable, and high quality. Dr. Mody’s favorite part of this process is letting his patients choose their own colors to express themselves and have fun!

orthodontics for all ages

At Half Moon Orthodontics, we believe everyone should have access to quality orthodontic care and the opportunity for a beautiful smile. We are proud to offer a full range of orthodontic treatment for children, teens, and adults at our office.

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that your child have an orthodontic evaluation at the age of 7. At this age, we can identify concerns in the development of the teeth and jaws.

At your initial consultation, Dr. Mody will determine if any treatment is recommended. ​​If treatment is not indicated, Dr. Mody will continue to monitor the growth and development of your child’s teeth and jaws over the course of a few years.

Early intervention at Half Moon Orthodontics can provide significant benefits:

  • Creates space for incoming permanent teeth
  • Prevents removal of permanent teeth
  • Corrects harmful oral habits, such as thumb-sucking
  • Redirects and guides jaw growth
  • Improves self-esteem and confidence
  • Makes it easier to brush and floss your teeth

The adolescent years (ages 10-17) are the most common time for orthodontic treatment because most adult teeth have come in by now. When you arrive for your first visit, we’ll talk through all of the treatment options we have available for you at Half Moon Orthodontics.

Although treatment times vary for each individual, Dr. Mody’s expertise and advanced technology will ensure your teen will finish treatment efficiently and smile confidently!

It is never too late to pursue a straighter, healthier smile! At Half Moon Orthodontics, we believe you are never too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment.

Proper alignment of your teeth and jaws contributes to excellent oral health and a beautiful smile. Orthodontics can also prevent other costly dental issues, such as tooth decay, gum disease, excessive wear of tooth enamel, bite discrepancies, and difficulty chewing.

Dr. Mody will work closely with your dentist to provide a comprehensive approach to your oral health. Our modern technology allows us to provide you with a comfortable solution to fit your busy lifestyle.
