Braces Provide More Than Straight Smiles

According to a 2019 study, Americans perceive people with straight teeth to have more desirable qualities than those with crooked teeth, including attributes such as happiness, being surrounded by loved ones and attaining professional success. But having a straight smile affects more than appearance and self-confidence. An improperly aligned teeth (called malocclusion) can make it harder to properly brush and floss, thereby increasing your risk of decay, and plaque and tartar buildup associated with gum disease. In addition, misaligned teeth can lead to temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction, causing chronic pain in your jaw, neck and face, as well as headaches. Whether you choose teeth straightening with traditional braces or clear Invisalign® in Phoenix, AZ, this will lower your risk of cavities, improve your overall oral health and beautify your smile. If you’re considering braces but are undecided, our team will help you choose the best option to resolve your alignment issues and fit your lifestyle.

The Long-Lasting Benefits of Orthodontics

Orthodontics at Phoenix Implant Clinics

Traditional braces are a time-tested method for straightening teeth that have helped millions of individuals achieve healthier, more attractive smiles. They consist of a series of brackets, wires and elastic bands that put continual pressure on teeth to move them into proper positions. We also offer clear braces in Phoenix, AZ that work in a similar manner with a bracket on each tooth and a wire threaded between them. Clear braces are a popular option because they’re made of tooth-colored resin that blends in with your teeth.

It can take at least four to six months for the new position of teeth to become permanent. When active treatment ends, retainers are recommended for most patients to keep teeth in their properly aligned positions and prevent shifting and gaps. In some cases, a permanent retainer is bonded to the back of teeth, thereby maintaining alignment without affecting your smile zone.

Invisalign is a popular and far more discreet option than traditional braces for many adults and teens. Although some cases require traditional braces, many patients with malocclusion, overbite or underbite are candidates for Invisalign. Each set of custom-made aligners is worn for about 22 hours a day for two weeks before switching out to the next set in the series. The aligners can be removed for eating, brushing, flossing and special occasions. While the entire process can take as little as six months, average treatment lasts about 12–18 months.

A palatal expander is sometimes used in children and teens to widen the upper jaw. This common orthodontic treatment can prevent unnecessary tooth extractions and provide more space for developing teeth to grow. We may recommended a palatal expander as part of comprehensive orthodontics because it will help improve your child’s long-term smile function and beauty.

At Phoenix Implant Clinics, we offer high-quality mouth guards for sports and tooth grinding (bruxism) created from an impression of your teeth. Our customized mouth guards cover all the teeth in each arch, stay comfortably and securely in place and maintain high-impact energy absorption.
