Patients across the Las Vegas, NV, area choose Carepoint Dental in Henderson, NV, for high-quality treatment with orthodontics.
Why Is Orthodontics Important?
Orthodontics is the field of dentistry that focuses on the alignment of the teeth and jaw. Beyond improving the aesthetics of your smile, orthodontics can give you straighter teeth that are easier to clean, improving your oral health. This type of treatment can also prevent future jaw issues by alleviating the pressure exerted on one side or the other by an imbalanced bite.
Are Braces Right for You? Request a Consultation to Find Out
Finding the right orthodontist to treat your misalignment can be difficult and time-consuming. Thankfully, you don't need to visit an orthodontist when you have Dr. Aaron Osga, who specializes in various dental fields, including orthodontics and oral surgery. He can use this knowledge to carefully assess if orthodontics or another form of dental treatment is right for you.
At Carepoint Dental, we only recommend dental procedures that serve your needs. We provide an honest assessment as to whether orthodontic treatment is a worthwhile investment for your smile, as well as roughly how long your treatment will take.

How Do Braces Work?
The first part of braces are the brackets, which will be attached to the front of your teeth. The brackets give the archwires and bands something to attach to and apply pressure to the teeth in order to move them into the correct position.
A long wire is then threaded through the front of the brackets. There's one wire for each arch of teeth. The wire will be switched out throughout your treatment to ensure it maintains the correct amount of pressure to align your smile properly.
Next, small rubber bands are placed around the brackets to hold the wires in place and add additional pressure to the teeth. These bands come in various colors that you can choose from at each adjustment appointment.
Some smiles need an extra nudge to move them into the proper position. Your doctor may require you to wear elastic bands that move the front or back teeth forward or to the side to aid in alignment. You will replace these each day.

Don't I Have to See an Orthodontist For Orthodontic Treatment?
This is a common misconception that many orthodontic patients hold. Fortunately, it's not always necessary to see an orthodontist for braces, especially when you have access to a highly trained dentist like Dr. Osga.
Dr. Osga isn't an orthodontist, but he's deeply studied the field of orthodontics, as well as other dentistry fields, to give him the skill to treat a wide variety of dental conditions, including misalignment. With this knowledge, he can accurately assess the state of your teeth and determine if orthodontic treatment is right for you or if another form of dentistry is better suited to treating your condition.
Additionally, his broad knowledge of other dental treatments means you can come to our office for everything from general cleanings to oral surgery. No matter which treatment you need, our goal is to build a lasting relationship with you based on trust and individualized care.
