Here at Morita Orthodontics, we pride ourselves on exceptional orthodontic service. We proudly serve families in and around Aiea, Kapolei and Honolulu, Hawaii. Today, as orthodontic technology becomes more advanced the actual treatment is simple, convenient and affordable for all of our patients. An attractive and healthy smile is just one of the many benefits of starting orthodontic treatment as an adolescent or adult. Our Honolulu orthodontists offer both Invisalign and braces to our Aiea patients because there is not one treatment that will fit all patients. In fact, Invisalign and braces do have specific advantages and disadvantages associated with each treatment.
Metal braces are the traditional and time-tested form of orthodontic treatment. To give patients a straighter smile, our braces use metal brackets that are cemented to the front of your teeth along with a wire that runs through them to gently guide the teeth into better positions. We believe these are the most important pros and cons when choosing Aiea braces:
Invisalign is considered to be the alternative to braces. Instead of using brackets and wires to shift a patient’s teeth, Invisalign uses clear, removable aligners to do the job. Our Honolulu orthodontists believe Invisalign has its own separate pros and cons, as followed:

RE: COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
To our valued patients,
In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), President Trump, the American Dental Association and the Hawaii Dental Association are recommending all dentists postpone nonemergency dental procedures for 2 weeks. Our practice is committed to protecting the community and avoiding using valuable resources that our first responders and frontline healthcare providers will need.
Our office will be closed effective today, Wednesday, March 18, and we plan to resume regular hours on Wednesday, April 1. If you are experiencing a true dental emergency including swelling or severe tooth pain, please call your general dentist office, and listen closely as emergency contact info will be available. For all nonemergent questions, please email us at [email protected].
We are so sorry for the burden this places on your schedules, but your continued health and safety are our number one priority. Our office is working diligently to reschedule all patients with existing appointments within the next 2 weeks. We will continue to evaluate the situation as it evolves and determine on a weekly basis when it is appropriate for us to return to normal orthodontic patient care. We ask for your compassion and understanding at this time as we all work together to keep Hawaii healthy.
