Thank you for visiting the website of Forster Orthodontics, an orthodontic care provider with offices conveniently located in Newport and Tiverton , Rhode Island. We are happy to welcome new patients from Aquidneck Island, Jamestown, South County, Tiverton, Warren, Bristol and Southeastern Massachusetts. Dr. Matt Forster is proud to offer outstanding orthodontic care for children, teens and adults.
Our dedicated team of highly-qualified professionals is committed to determining which treatment solution is best suited for your specific orthodontic needs.
We understand how important a straight, beautiful smile is, and offer a wide variety of treatment options, ranging from traditional time-proven appliances, to the latest innovative technology, including:
A state-of-the-art alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign straightens your teeth using a series of clear, customized removable appliances called aligners. Invisalign gives you the flexibility to eat and drink what you want throughout your treatment. Best of all, no one will know you are wearing braces unless you tell them!
GAC In-Ovation "C"
In-Ovation “C” is a self-ligating bracket, which allows more control during treatment than more traditional brackets. The difference is that they are smaller in size but also stronger and more efficient because they have a built-in clip that holds the archwires in place without the need for wire or elastic ties. This allows for greater overall attractiveness, increased comfort and a more reliable product.
In-Ovation C braces provide patients with a beautiful, healthy smile in less time than traditional braces. Their special design also provides for greater comfort and fewer appointments. Plus their ceramic translucency helps to camouflage the appearance of braces allowing you to maintain the natural beauty of your smile.
GAC In-Ovation "R"
In-Ovation “R” is a self-ligating bracket, which allows more control during treatment than more traditional brackets. The difference is that they are smaller in size but also stronger and more efficient because they have a built-in clip that holds the archwires in place without the need for wire or elastic ties. This allows for greater overall attractiveness and a more reliable product.
The clip is also more comfortable than the standard wires because it does not gouge or stick to a patient’s cheek or gum line. Many patients report faster, more efficient results, which means less fuss and fewer treatment visits for you.
