As adult teeth come in and begin to mature, it is not uncommon for patients to experience alignment problems. Whether a patient is just beginning to experience these difficulties or is a long-time sufferer of misalignment, orthodontic treatment is the solution. Proper alignment of the teeth and jaw bone is the primary goal of orthodontic treatment at our cosmetic dental practice. By creating an even bite we can enhance the appearance of the smile while improving the physical health of the mouth to help patients avoid or alleviate common side effects of misalignment such as tooth damage, muscle strain, and TMJ disorder. For our patients from Ammon, Blackfoot, Rexburg, Shelley, and Idaho Falls, orthodontics treatment has successfully helped a great number of patients achieve a healthier and more beautiful smile.

Each treatment will be unique based on the type of alignment problems that are present and the extent of correction that is needed.

On average, orthodontic treatment is complete within 12-18 months and can be broken down into the following phases:
