If you’re trying to decide if you want to align your teeth and beautify your smile with orthodontic treatment, our Orthodontics, Inc. team is more than happy to give you some information that might help you make the right decision for your smile.

For your convenience, orthodontists in the world today have taken advantage of modern technology and have worked to improve orthodontics as much as possible. Over time, there have been many advancements that have been made, including:

Orthodontic appliances now are better looking
In the past, braces were made with stainless steel appliances and they were glued to the front surfaces of your teeth. Today, there are many appliances that are glued to the backs of your teeth, are natural looking, or are completely removable. Some examples include Invisalign®, ceramic braces, lingual braces, and Damon Braces.

Orthodontic appliances now have better performance and less pain
Back in the day, braces needed to be replaced and tightened more frequently because of the stainless steel brackets and wires. Now, orthodontists have adopted the use of nickel or copper titanium wires that apply pressure to the brackets and move the teeth using natural body heat.

Orthodontic appliances now offer more options for different needs
Recent orthodontic developments have made it possible to align the smile with a less-noticeable appliance. There are clear braces and aligners for those who wish to align their teeth without a metal-filled smile. Now, orthodontics are more attractive, effective, and durable.

Now that you know that orthodontic treatment is better, more successful, and more attractive, we encourage you to take advantage of the treatment so you can have the smile you have always wanted! Call (928) 774-0881 today and schedule an appointment with Dr. Jacob Spendlove at your earliest convenience so we can meet with you and determine if orthodontics is the right option for you. We look forward to hearing from you!
