Why Choose Wexel Orthodontics

Dr. Walt Wexel has years of experience crafting gorgeous smiles, and he uses his passion and expertise to help every patient achieve optimal orthodontic health. We strive to design specialized treatment plans for our patients, and we use only the latest in cutting-edge orthodontic technology to ensure every treatment we offer is as safe, fast, and effective as possible. While we offer a wide variety of treatments to suit a range of conditions, two methods stand out as the most popular by far - Damon braces and Invisalign.

The Damon System

The Damon System takes the concept of traditional metal braces and enhances it for the 21st century. Using tie-less, self-ligating braces and high-tech memory shape wires, Damon brackets are smaller than traditional brackets, require fewer adjustment appointments, and speed up treatment times. They're a cutting-edge take on the time-tested treatment of braces.


Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that does away with brackets and wires altogether, instead relying on a series of clear plastic trays - called aligners - to straighten teeth. The aligners fit directly over the dental arch and are virtually invisible when worn and completely removable. This means that almost no one will know you're straightening your teeth and you can pop them in and out to brush, floss, eat, and drink - so they come with none of the dietary restrictions of regular braces!

Before and After

A picture is worth a thousand words.  These Before and After pictures, graciously released by happy patients, show the "miracle" of the Damon bone widening and turn Traditional thinking and treatment upside down.  Traditional treatment starts early to make the teeth fit the existing bone often thru long and expensive multi-phase treatments, such as serial extraction of baby then permanent teeth, space maintainers to hold space internally during the loss of baby teeth, palatal expanders, jaw surgery, headgear, pistons, lip bumpers, jumpers, early braces with coils etc.
