Orthodontic Treatment in St. Paul & Minneapolis

Early Treatment

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that a child visit the orthodontist for early treatment at the age of seven. At this time, our orthodontist in St. Paul and Minneapolis will assess if orthodontic problems are apparent or will become apparent in future years. We will be looking for crowding of teeth, openbites, crossbites, and overbites. And, we will be able to tell when and if your child will need braces. By getting started early, we will set your child up for a life-long straight smile!

Adult Treatment

Braces are not only for children and teens. Adults are the largest growing group of orthodontic patients. And, with technological advances, orthodontic adult treatment has more inconspicuous options than ever! You’ll hardly even notice the orthodontic appliance on your teeth. Your St. Paul orthodontist offers Invisalign clear aligners, clear braces, gold braces, and traditional metal braces. We want to give you the smile you’ve always wanted, and it’s not too late to achieve it!

Types of Braces

At your neighborhood orthodontist in Minneapolis, we offer an array of orthodontic treatment plans and types of braces when it comes to straightening teeth. Our orthodontist can provide traditional metal braces, clear braces, gold braces, and Invisalign clear aligners. Together, we will discuss which option will best fit your needs and your orthodontic health.


Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment plan that consists of clear, removable aligners that fit directly onto the teeth. Every two weeks the aligners are changed to slowly, but surely, shift your teeth into the desired position. The advantage of Invisalign is that the aligners are basically unnoticeable. They are clear and are worn directly on your teeth, can be taken out to eat or drink, and require the same oral hygiene routine. Our St. Paul orthodontist recommends Invisalign to adults and teens who want a less seen orthodontic treatment option.


After your orthodontic treatment has finished and your braces have been taken off, we want to retain your newly straightened teeth. Dr. Meister uses retainers to keep your teeth in their new stable positions and hold them in place. You will be provided with a retainer to wear for 12-24 months after your orthodontic treatment has ended. This will ensure your teeth stay straight and functional.

Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs)

Temporary anchorage devices, also known as TADs, are mini screw anchors made of biocompatible titanium alloy which are inserted into your gums and jawbone. These devices greatly assist with the precise movement of your teeth to a straighter and more functional position. Before TADs, orthodontists relied on headgear. But now, you can enjoy a more discrete, smaller orthodontic appliance to help aid your braces throughout your treatment.

Surgical Treatment

Sometimes, corrective jaw surgery is needed to treat and correct abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth. Meister Orthodontics wants to ensure that these abnormalities are corrected because if left untreated, they can cause difficulty chewing, talking, and sleeping. Dr. Meister uses the latest digital imaging technology, computerized treatment plan, and state of the art materials to correct your teeth and jaw and ultimately increase the overall appearance of your facial profile.
