Orthodontics

Straighten and Strengthen Your Smile!

Girl with bracesIf you have misaligned teeth, TMJ, or other dental problems, you may be referred to an orthodontist. One of the most common orthodontic treatments is braces. Contrary to popular belief, braces are not solely used as a cosmetic solution, but can also help with tooth and jaw alignment issues.

Your dentist will recommend your child to an orthodontist when the time is right, but most children have their fist check-up with an orthodontist at age 7. By seeing an orthodontist early on, our dental team can establish a treatment plan before any issues become major.

One of the best things about South Springs Dental Group is that we have a complete team of dental professionals in one location. When our patients need orthodontics services, we refer them to our staff orthodontist, Dr. Andrew Horne.

After completing his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor, Dr. Horne moved to Colorado to complete his orthodontic residency at the University of Colorado.

We offer the following services to patients who want straighter teeth:

Invisalign: These appliances are invisible on teeth and offer more flexibility than braces as well as shorter average treatment times. In order for this method to be effective, patients need to be very responsible, so it is typically only appropriate for adults.

Braces: This treatment is typically used in children aged 9-14. Braces are semi-permanent and, while treatment times vary, usually stay on teeth for 1-2 years.
