Candidates for Henderson Braces

Are you considering braces, but don’t know whether or not you’re a good candidate for orthodontic treatment? If so, then our Henderson orthodontist may be able to provide some more insight for you.

Braces Are Not Just for Straightening Teeth

Many people believe Henderson braces are for simply straightening out our teeth. While true, braces are actually used to correct orthodontic issues that have developed since birth. Most of the issues interfere with our mouth’s capacity to function normally, causing issues with our bite that make chewing inefficient, develop speech issues, among others abnormalities.

Braces are used to correct these types of orthodontic issues:

  • Misaligned, crowded teeth
  • Gaps in between teeth
  • Under bites
  • Overbites
  • Cross bites
  • Closed bites
  • Other issues

If you suspect you may possess any of the issues above, then you will likely be a good candidate for orthodontic treatment such as Invisalign® which is recommended for adults. Other options include traditional metal braces, lingual braces, and metal braces with clear brackets.

The First Step Begins with an Orthodontic Consultation

The most important step anyone can take in his or her Henderson braces journey is to begin with a goals-oriented discussion with a certified orthodontist. As we mentioned, braces are more than just straightening choice. They are way to correct issues that you may or may not even be aware exist in your mouth. The only real way to find out is not by reading information online, but by sitting down face to face with your orthodontist.

If you are ready to take the first step in obtaining treatment, then we strongly encourage you to call us @ (702) 803-1825 or fill out our convenient online contact form.

★★★★★ In my opinion, Mint Dental & Orthodontics is one of the best Dentist Practices in Las Vegas. Dr. Dennis Clark and his staff are the best. They treat you like family and have a genuine interest in your wellbeing. I used to hate going to the dentist because of feeling like I was just another patient. All of which, went away when I scheduled my first appointment with Dr. Dennis Clark.

★★★★★ I came to Mint Dental & Orthodontics fleeing from my previous dentist, and it was the best decision. Dr. Dennis Clark was very professional and caring and listened to my concerns that were not taken into account at my previous doctor. The office was very clean and orderly and the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and you can tell they take not only dental hygiene seriously but cleanliness in general as a big priority.
