What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a subset of dentistry specializing in the alignment and correction of the teeth and jaw. While many people believe orthodontics is all about looks, misaligned teeth can increase your likelihood of cavities, physical discomfort, and difficulties speaking and eating. 

Orthodontics corrects these issues while giving you a wonderful smile that can help you feel like your best self.

Types of Orthodontic Treatment We Offer

Orthodontic treatment has experienced some major advancements in the last few years. Gone are the days of clunky and noticeable appliances. Modern treatment options offer the perfect blend of sophisticated technology and comfort. 

Clifton & Mauney provides many innovative orthodontic treatments that can suit your smile’s needs, including: 

Invisalign

Invisalign and Invisalign Teen offer you smile correction with clear, removable aligners. Wear your Invisalign around 20 hours a day and remove them when it’s convenient, all without noticeable hardware. 

Braces

Braces work around the clock to help perfect your smile. Clifton & Mauney has several innovative braces options for you to explore. Each of these choices are different, so it’s important to find the best one for your needs.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces use a low-profile bracket made of a clear material. They have high-grade ceramic components that practically disappear into your mouth, offering an unbeatable level of comfort.

Damon Braces

Damon Metal Braces incorporate a specialized design that eliminates the need for elastic ties. Instead, Damon Braces are “self-ligating,” meaning they use clips to hold the wires rather than brackets. This design allows for faster treatment and less discomfort. 

Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces have been the treatment of choice for orthodontic patients for years with their durability and effectiveness. Using stainless steel brackets and wires, metal braces are a time-tested way to improve your smile. 

Wire signs say "brush floss smile". A stuffed toy elf is stuck in the word "floss".

Early Treatment

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, children should start visiting an orthodontist by the age of seven. This allows your orthodontist to intervene before minor concerns become major issues. Learn more about how our board-certified pediatric dentists help children get beautiful smiles.

Retainers

After completing orthodontic treatment, you’ll need to wear a retainer to keep your smile beautiful.  You will continue to be followed by your orthodontist regularly to ensure your teeth remain in correct alignment. When you consistently wear your retainer, as instructed by your orthodontist and orthodontic team, then you will reap the most benefits from your time in orthodontic treatment.
