Customized Treatment Plans with Individualized Attention

Modern and Comfortable Options

Orthodontic appliances are lightyears ahead of where they were even a few years ago. These appliances are contoured to provide the ultimate blend of esthetics and design. Options like Invisalign, Damon Braces, and ceramic braces use low-profile components that fit comfortably into your mouth.

Family-Friendly Treatment For All Ages

The whole family is welcome at Clifton and Mauney! We help people from every age group improve their smiles. Plus, our comfortable and inviting office creates relaxing and productive visits.

Our office staff strives to create a welcoming, caring, and respectful environment. We work hard to provide the highest quality care possible. By prioritizing your needs, you can feel confident that every visit will be a pleasant experience. 

Start Showing the World Your Smile

We believe that no two people — or their smiles — have the exact same needs. Every patient is different, which is why we’re proud to offer customized orthodontic treatments for all of our patients. 

Some of our treatment options include:


Invisalign offers a convenient, noninvasive option for a new smile. Instead of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable trays called aligners to straighten teeth. These aligners are smooth to the touch, lay flat on the teeth, and are made from a transparent plastic material that makes them also impossible to see when they’re worn.

Damon Braces

The Damon System harnesses advancements in orthodontic technology to create a new type of braces that offers a faster, more comfortable, and more effective overall treatment. By using special self-ligating (“tie-less”) brackets, patients enjoy increased flexibility of the braces. The freedom of Damon Braces lets us design treatments that move teeth faster and more precisely.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces work much like metal braces, but instead of unsightly stainless steel, ceramic brackets are made from a clear composite material. This material makes them less noticeable from the outside, providing a convenient form of therapy for adults seeking braces. You’ll be amazed at how undetectable these braces are during treatment!
