ORTHODONTICS IN PHOENIX
Many people easily confuse going to the dentist and going to the orthodontist. Although a dentist may offer orthodontic treatments, an orthodontist only covers treatments that focus on straightening or moving a patient’s teeth which also means they correct jaw alignments as well. This means that, while you go to the dentist for checkups, cleanings, fillings, etc., a patient would go to the orthodontist to get treatments such as braces, retainers, expanders, etc.
BRACES & CLEAR ALIGNERS
There are many treatments that fall under the orthodontics bracket of dentistry. However, probably one of the most popular, and newest addition to this bracket are clear aligners. There are various company names these aligners can fall under and you may have heard of a few. Whatever company your familiar with, they all have the same basic mechanics.
HOW CLEAR ALIGNERS WORK
Clear aligners are a great alternative to traditional braces which can be unsightly with the metal brackets and wires. Aligners are clear which means they are hardly noticed even when people are standing closer to the person wearing them. They’re not as bulky as traditional braces therefore, they appear more natural. On top of all of this, they’re removable as needed which means there’s no need to try conduct a meeting while wearing them if you’re not comfortable with it. Further, traditional braces limit the items you can eat and drink. However, with clear aligners, since they are removable, there are no limits to the items you can eat and drink. Of course, it’s not advised that you eat and drink with them in. Lastly, perhaps one of the most embarrassing aspects of traditional braces is the fact that food get so easily stuck in them and it can be hard to notice until it’s been there a while. With clear aligners, you don’t have to worry about embarrassing moments like this.

PATIENTS RECOMMEND US
What a great dental office. I was just in there today and the people are amazing! My oldest daughter and I were scheduled to get our teeth cleaned at the same time, but I had to bring my year and a half old daughter with us, it was daddy’s day while mommy had to run errands. They helped out so much so I could get my teeth cleaned until my oldest was done and she could watch her. Great people!
This place is awesome. The atmosphere is dope. The staff is very nice and friendly. The place is so inviting. The exams and cleanings are VERY THOROUGH. They don’t just clean and send you own your way. They ask questions and get to know YOU. This was the best dental visit I’ve ever had.
Dr. Arthur’s one of the best dentists I have amazing dental visits and the quality of work he does is outstanding. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a dentist. Thank you so much for all the great work.
