At Image Orthodontics Oakland, our team of exceptional orthodontists and staff are well known in the community for transforming smiles of adults, teens, and children using the latest technology and techniques.

Invisalign®

Invisalign® uses clear plastic aligners to gradually shift your teeth into their optimal position without wires or brackets commonly used in traditional braces

Braces

Braces are bonded brackets, arched wires and elastic bands that move crowded or spaced teeth into the proper position for appearance and function.

In-Ovation® System

The In-Ovation system makes braces practically pain free with virtually no pressure placed on your teeth as they are gently guided into place. Contact our team to learn more.

SureSmile® uses 3D imaging to create virtual simulations of how your teeth will shift. In addition, this advanced technology allows us to customize your treatment. Contact our team to learn more.

Sleep Apnea

Early diagnosis and treatment in children are important to prevent complications that can affect children’s growth. We can help fix sleep apnea without the need for a CPAP machine by using SomnoDent Oral Appliances.

TMD & TMJ Disorders

From night guards to protect your teeth at night to orthodontic intervention that includes balancing the surface of your teeth to correct your bite, we do it all. And we want to help you feel better. Contact our team to learn more.
