Dr. Amanda Gallagher welcomes patients of all ages at her Nottingham (Perry Hall) and Abingdon, Maryland offices. Our expertise and commitment to our patients is what makes us stand out. Whether you are a child, teen or adult we have treatment options for all ages. On your first visit to our office we will conduct a comprehensive exam to adequately assess the best course of action for your orthodontic care. This assessment includes X-rays and photographs and also a conversation with Dr. Gallagher about your treatment goals. Some of the treatments we commonly discuss with patients include:
Invisalign, Invisalign Teen, Clear Braces, INBRACE (Hidden/Lingual Braces) and Traditional Metal Braces
The early pre-teen to teen years are a great time to start full braces or Invisalign since all permanent teeth are erupted. Some patients may have already had a previous phase of treatment (Phase 1) and are ready for Phase 2, or some patients may just be starting treatment for the first time.
Invisalign - Your Clear Alternative to Braces
An Invisalign Platinum Provider, Dr. Gallagher is an expert in improving smiles with the more esthetic options that many teens and adults prefer. Using a system of clear, computer generated aligners that are custom made specifically per Dr. Gallagher’s treatment plan, Invisalign straightens teeth gradually without the use of visible brackets. One major advantage of Invisalign is that these aligners are all removable so there is no limitation on what you can eat or drink and brushing and flossing is much easier than it is with braces.
