Orthodontic treatment options for all ages and stages of life

Modern orthodontics has moved well beyond the dreaded “metal mouth” stage of our teenage years. Now people of all life stages are taking advantage of modern treatment options, including totally custom 3D printed LightForce braces, transparent 3M™ Clarity aligners, and advanced 3D imaging for all digital treatment planning.

Early Treatment and Intervention

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children have their first orthodontic exam at age 7 when their first adult teeth (secondary teeth) begin to appear.

Teen Orthodontics

The field of teen orthodontics has come a long way! Dr. Payne offers the most advanced orthodontic treatment options and technology in the greater Sacramento, CA area, including 3M™ Clarity™ clear aligners and advanced LightForce™ braces.

Adult Orthodontics

Straighten teeth without the appearance of metal braces using 3M™ Clarity™ clear aligners, advanced LightForce™ braces, clear ceramic braces and self-ligating brackets.
