Your Treatment Options

At Longo Family Orthodontics, we know that you are unique and no two people are truly the same. We pride ourselves in offering evidence-based, customized treatment plans that fit you, uniquely. You could call it, the All About You plan.

To achieve great results, we offer three simple options. Look them over, ask us questions, and choose what fits your lifestyle and goals the best.

What We Can Do For You

Clear Braces

Clear braces are the same as traditional metal braces, except they are made of a clear ceramic and your friends and family have a harder time spotting them!

At Longo Family Orthodontics, we offer the most revolutionary clear bracket available today, Clarity Advanced Ceramic Brackets. These braces are awesome, as they are ultra-small and blend with the natural color of teeth, allowing you to smile with pride even DURING your orthodontic treatment.

We don’t use these braces for everyone, as they do behave slightly different than metal braces. Ceramic is slightly more brittle and can break more readily than the metal braces, so for our wrestlers and WWF fanatics we tend to hide these!

However, with a little love and attention these are a great treatment option.

More About Clear Braces

Metal Braces

These provide you with a grill while we are straightening your grill! The gold standard of treatment, at Longo Family Orthodontics we offer traditional metal braces. We use a brace that we affectionately refer to as the Speed Bracer, which allows us to accelerate through treatment, often allowing treatments to finish within a year. Our braces are also smaller than typical, allowing you to look and feel better during treatment.

More About Metal Braces


The year is 2017, and clear braces are here and they rock! Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen® provide the most invisible method of creating straight, beautiful teeth available on planet earth. At Longo Family Orthodontics, we take pride to offer this as a treatment option. Furthermore, at our office Invisalign® treatments cost the same as traditional braces.

What is Invisalign®?

A series of custom, clear aligners designed to move your teeth into the perfect spot. Aligners are switched every 1-2 weeks, based on doctor’s instructions and treatments typically take under one year.

Tooth movement options are somewhat limited with clear aligners, so if you are interested we always recommend scheduling a free consultation where we can discuss our goals and design a plan that fits you perfectly.
