Orthodontics In Phoenix & Ahwatukee

A straighter smile for a more confident You. Straighter teeth help improve your oral health and self-confidence.

Straighten Your Teeth For A More Attractive, Healthy Appearance

It’s important that your teeth and jaw be positioned correctly for your bite to work properly and for your smile to look its best. Tooth irregularity, tooth alignment, and disproportionate jaw relationships for both pediatric and adult patients can create a variety of problems if not treated. Misaligned teeth are harder to keep clean, at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease and cause extra stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to headaches, TMJ, as well as neck, shoulder and back pain. Poor tooth alignment can even make it difficult to pronounce certain sounds and can put excess strain on the chewing muscles causing facial pain. Teeth that are crooked or not in the right place can also detract from one’s appearance and result in someone being less social in their business and/or personal life.

Orthodontist Braces

An orthodontist will design a treatment to create a healthier mouth, a more aesthetically pleasing smile and teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime. Although childhood is the ideal time to make changes in the positioning of the teeth, more adults than ever before are seeking orthodontics. In fact, one in five orthodontic patients is over age 18.

ClearCorrect

Am I Too Old for ClearCorrect Braces?

You have probably sat next to an adult at work or on a plane and had no idea they had braces on. That’s because they were wearing ClearCorrect braces. ClearCorrect braces are the invisible, state-of-the-art way of straightening teeth without the telltale sign of wire brackets so frequently seen on adolescents. ClearCorrect braces use a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks and as the next aligner in the series is used, your teeth will move, little by little, week by week, until they have straightened to the final desired position.
