Florman Orthodontics’ husband-wife orthodontist team have straightened more than 1,300 chomper sets via Invisalign and other aligner methods, earning them an Elite Preferred ranking from Invisalign in recognition of their exceptional depth of experience.

An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment.
