Home - Braces
We are one of the few SureSmile braces providers in Lincoln and the surrounding communities, and our doctors apply this technology to shorten overall treatment time and make your braces treatment more precise.
Being an iTero digital practice with many digital scanners available here means we scan your teeth for an accurate digital model of your mouth.
This is the most comfortable, precise, and efficient way to start any orthodontic treatment.

Once you start your plan, everything is included. Every visit you need, after-hours care or questions if ever needed, soft tissue laser recontouring or cosmetic tooth reshaping if necessary, one round of retainers at the end of treatment, even extended to checkup visits up to a year after treatment is all at no extra charge.
Yes! A great smile leads to enhanced confidence, but most importantly, straight teeth are healthy teeth.
Crowded or poorly aligned teeth can lead to trapped food particles and tooth decay, extra wearing where the bite puts extra stress on tooth surfaces, and even breathing problems associated with blocked airway passages.
We can help with all of these issues!
Yes! According to the AAO, children should visit an orthodontist by age seven to intercept possible problem conditions during growth that could make braces or Invisalign treatment much easier when they are older.
Your first visit is free, and many children will enter an observation phase of free visits until their teeth or jaw is ready to start interceptive orthodontics or braces or Invisalign treatment.
Yes of course! Our doctors are experts in the way teeth move safely, at any age. Children are recommended by the AAO to be seen by age seven to possibly intercept growth issues, and we see every age of teens and adults!
Being treated by our Orthodontists ensures your treatment is safe for a stable bite, and monitored correctly to prevent tooth damage as your teeth move.
Starting life with a severe underbite, Dr. Schoettger helped align my jaw for the first phase. I was in grade school at the time and he answered my questions, helping me to understand exactly what was happening.
For the second phase, under the care of Dr. Jared Schoettger, my adult teeth were moved to bring my bite into perfect alignment.
Both doctors have a fun sense of humor that made me look forward to seeing them each visit. I'm grateful for my beautiful smile and thank everyone at Schoettger Orthodontics for making it happen!
"Emma's treatment journey is a great example of early interceptive orthodontics! Her first phase was important to remove functional crossbites and interferences.
When she had all of her adult teeth in, we were able to align her teeth into her wonderful smile she has today."
