At Prine Orthodontics we believe our job is to create beautiful, healthy, and functional smiles for our patients. That’s important, because you’ll benefit from that approach for the rest of your life. But we’re equally concerned about the way we treat you as a person while you’re in treatment. We promise we’ll get to know you so we can deliver the best treatment in an atmosphere that’s just right for each patient. Ultimately, it is our passion to create smiles and experiences for our patients that will last a lifetime.
From your first visit to the day you walk out with your new smile, we hope you’ll notice the difference. We want your time in treatment to be almost as good as the day your Prine Smile is complete.
Life With Braces
Having braces is much more comfortable than it used to be, especially when you get your braces at Prine Orthodontics. That’s because Dr. Prine takes a patient-focused approach and uses technologies that make having braces easier than ever.
THE FIRST FEW DAYS after each appointment it’s common to experience some tenderness of your teeth and mouth. Your teeth might even feel a little loose (after all – they’re on the move.) You may want to take some form of pain reliever (what you would normally take for a headache) during this time.
When it comes to orthodontic treatment, the options available today are the best they’ve ever been. In fact, Dr. Prine offers technologies that make having braces a great experience for everyone from young children to adults in their 70’s and 80’s. Treatment is now more esthetic, more comfortable and, at least as far as teens are concerned, more fun. Some patients choose options with brightly colored elastics that really help them show off their personality. Others choose one of our virtually invisible options, like Invisalign®, so they can improve their smiles without drawing attention to the fact they’re in treatment.
When you, or any member of your family, are ready to find out if orthodontic treatment is the right choice, choosing a doctor that understands how to design a treatment plan that works well with your life just makes sense. That means choosing a qualified specialist like Dr. Prine is one of the most important decisions you can make. You can find out more about our options here.

The Invisalign® System straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable aligners. It's virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without announcing it to the world. Invisalign moves your teeth in small steps to the desired final position. Each of your aligners is precisely customized to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. You switch to a new set of aligners every couple of weeks and only remove the to eat, brush and floss. Before you know it you’ll be smiling like you never have before! At your complimentary consultation, you can find out if Invisalign is a good option for you. It’s one of a number of virtually undetectable options we offer.
