Meet Dr. Keyan Botsford
What a privilege it is to work with so many wonderful patients and families! I feel incredibly grateful to be in a profession that I absolutely love. There is nothing more rewarding than feeling like I am making a difference in the lives of those in my community.
Orthodontics is about so much more than achieving a great smile, although who can complain about that? It’s what that smile can do—helping individuals build their confidence and self-esteem to excel in other aspects of their lives—that is so meaningful to me.

Types of Treatment
Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that has become widely popular as an effective and discreet solution for achieving a straighter smile. These clear aligners offer an alternative to traditional braces, utilizing a series of custom-made, removable trays to gradually align the teeth. Crafted from a comfortable, transparent material, Invisalign aligners fit snugly over the teeth and go virtually unnoticed.
The treatment process involves progressing through a set of aligners, typically changed every 1-2 weeks, which exert gentle pressure on the teeth to guide them into the desired positions. For optimal results, it is crucial to wear the aligners for 20-22 hours per day, only removing them for eating, drinking, and oral hygiene. Compliance with the prescribed treatment plan is essential to ensure the effectiveness and timely completion of the Invisalign treatment. During a complimentary consultation, our experienced team will assess your orthodontic needs and determine if Invisalign is the right solution for you.
With Invisalign, you can achieve a straighter smile without the inconvenience and visibility of traditional braces. Experience the benefits of this advanced orthodontic treatment and enjoy the confidence that comes with a beautifully aligned smile. Trust our expertise and personalized care to help you achieve the smile of your dreams with Invisalign.
Traditionally, braces are one of the most efficient tools an orthodontist has. Made out of ceramic brackets or metal brackets that are attached to the teeth, they're then connected to one another using wires and tiny rubber bands that we call elastics. All of these elements work in harmony with one another to apply gentle pressure to your teeth, gradually moving them into the positions they need to be in while you check in regularly with our team for adjustments.
If you have complex issues with your smile that need to be corrected, braces are an excellent choice. Sometimes, braces can align your teeth and close gaps between them more quickly than other orthodontic treatments might. This may mean less total treatment time for you.
In some cases, braces may also come with a more friendly price tag than orthodontic treatment options as well, since they don't require some of the more complex technology or expensive equipment that other treatments might.
Clear aligners are an incredibly popular alternative treatment method to traditional braces, both among patients and orthodontists themselves. Rather than using brackets and bands, clear aligners such as Invisalign® straighten teeth gradually using a series for clear, removable aligners.
Clear aligners are made of a comfortable, plastic material that is custom-designed to fit snugly over your teeth. To keep your teeth moving the way you want them to, you will usually need to switch your invisible trays our every 1-2 weeks to the next tray in the series.
Clear aligners will only work if you follow your instructions precisely. You should be wearing your aligners for roughly 20-22 hours per day over the course of your treatment. Neglecting to wear the aligners as recommended will not only decrease the effectiveness of your treatment, it will also make your treatment take longer.
While clear aligners are great for fixing many of the most common orthodontic cases, in some complex cases, it may not be the best solution for you. Scheduling a free consultation with our team will allow us to help you determine your best path forward.
