Orthodontics is a specialization within the field of dentistry focusing on the proper alignment of the teeth and jaws, along with dentofacial orthopedics, which means guiding the face and jaw as they develop.
Just like all dentists, orthodontists graduate from an accredited dental school, but then go on to receive an additional two to three years of training and education devoted solely to orthodontics.
So, when it comes to straightening your teeth or correcting bite issues, there is no one more qualified to provide treatment than an orthodontist.
Our practice provides a wide range of orthodontic services for patients of all ages. These include:
Rather than the metal wires and brackets of traditional braces, Invisalign’s clear plastic aligners are the more comfortable choice for gradually realigning your teeth and bite. Its unobtrusive look makes them practically invisible to others, and because you can remove them for a few hours each day to eat and perform your regular dental hygiene, they’re easier to use, too. For a beautiful smile without the discomfort of traditional braces, and for an attractive look while undergoing orthodontic treatment, Invisalign makes a great choice. At Hass Family Orthodontics, we offer both the traditional Invisalign system and Invisalign Teen for our younger patients.
Two Phase Orthodontics
Two Phase Orthodontics is exactly what it sounds like, two phases of orthodontic treatment. These are” Early Orthodontics for children and Adolescent Orthodontics. Using this approach, our goal is to prevent as many orthodontic issues as possible by guiding the erupting teeth and jaw while still developing. Successful Phase I treatment means a shorter time in braces as a teen – as well as optimal results.
Braces are still the most popular option for orthodontic treatment, but today’s braces are nothing like the braces from decades past. We offer a variety of braces including self-ligating Damon bracelets and allergy-free titanium braces that are more discreet, comfortable, and effective than ever before.
When a misaligned bite cannot be corrected with orthodontics alone, we’ll collaborate with you on a treatment plan with a qualified oral surgeon. During a surgical procedure, your surgeon will realign your jaws, while Dr. Hass will provide you with braces to ensure your teeth are in correct alignment once your surgery is complete.
TMJ disorder is a painful condition that can cause a wide range of discomfort from headaches to jaw pain. The disorder is often caused by misalignments in the jaw, which can be alleviated with orthodontic treatment. Teeth grinding and jaw clenching can also be a major cause of TMJ suffering, and we can treat those issues with a comfortable custom-made night guard. Dr. Hass can diagnose your TMD, determine the underlying cause, and successfully identify the best course of treatment for your own unique needs.
