Why Choose Arizona Smile Design for Traditional Braces?

How Braces Work

To begin your orthodontic treatment, Dr. Mueller will place a metal bracket on each of your teeth. Then, a thin metal archwire is threaded through each of these brackets. Because the archwire naturally wants to maintain its original shape, it will exert a gentle pressure on the teeth, gradually shifting them into a more aligned position. The roots of the teeth underneath the gums will also move to support these changes.

Are Braces Right for Me?

Your dentist in Sun City West is the best person to ask when it comes to finding out if you need braces. However, this treatment can correct many common orthodontic issues, including:

Crowded Teeth

Teeth that are too close together are difficult to clean, increasing your risk of cavities and gum disease. Braces can even out your pearly whites, improving your smile’s appearance as well as its health.

Gaps Between Teeth

If you’re self-conscious of your gapped teeth, braces can help. Significant spaces between teeth are more likely to trap food debris and bacteria, putting you at greater risk of tooth decay and bad breath. Braces can prevent both of these issues simultaneously.

Bite Alignment Problems

When your bite isn’t even, your jaw joint may be under excessive stress. You’re then more likely to habitually clench and grind your teeth, which can wear down your tooth enamel over time. Whether you have an overbite, underbite, open bite, or crossbite, braces can align your smile.

Benefits of Braces

When you invest in your smile with braces, here are some of the benefits you can expect to enjoy:

Cost of Braces

Keep in mind that every patient’s braces treatment will incur different costs based on variables like your age, the complexity of your case, and your level of insurance coverage. We strongly encourage you to schedule a consultation with us to find out a more detailed cost estimate.

Dental insurance may cover a portion of the cost depending on your age and the specifics of your plan. At Arizona Smile Design, we accept most dental insurance plans and are in-network with many of them. We also welcome third-party financing through CareCredit or our in-house Arizona Smile Design Dental Plan.
