Teen Orthodontics

You've Got Choices


Braces? What about your image?

Are you bummed because you need braces? Are you afraid you will be forced to hide out in your room for two years? The field of teen orthodontics has come a long way!

Thanks to advanced orthodontics from Dr. Michael H. Payne, DDS, MSD, a board-certified Sacramento orthodontist, those days are officially over. Dr. Payne offers the most advanced orthodontic treatment options and technology in the greater Sacramento, CA area – including custom-made LightForce braces and 3M™ Clarity™ aligners.

You’ve got choices, and they’re all good

3M™ Clarity™ aligners give you a whole new way to achieve a “clearly” amazing smile – without the embarrassment of “metal mouth”! With these nearly invisible aligners, you won’t have to turn down a date or miss out on the yearbook pictures.

3M Clarity aligners are a perfect fit for your lifestyle because they are:

  • Clear
  • Removable
  • Super-comfortable
  • Customized just for you

Pizza? Popcorn? No problem!

You’ve probably heard from friends with dental braces that you won’t be able to eat anything. With 3M™ Clarity™ aligners, you can eat whatever you want!

Unlike traditional metal braces, your 3M Clarity aligners are removable, which means you can go ahead and eat all the things you love without worries.

3M Clarity aligners are really comfortable and they fit in with all your extracurricular activities. So whether you’re shooting baskets or playing trombone with the school band, you won’t have to worry about unsightly braces getting in the way!
