Orthodontic Services in Glendale, AZ

If you have even one jagged tooth, you probably find yourself hiding your smile or trying not to smile as often as you would like. Kids feel the exact same way about their smiles, which is why it's so important to schedule a time to talk with a family dentist about how you can improve and straighten your smile and the smiles of your children. At Associated Family Dentistry, we use both traditional braces and Invisalign, and we encourage you to learn more about both.

Traditional Braces

Many assume that traditional braces will make you look like you have a mouth full of metal. Though braces still come in metal, we offer a number of different colors to best meet your needs. One of our dentists will attach the metal brackets directly to the teeth and use a series of rubber bands and metal wires that connect to those brackets. The child dentist will slowly adjust the brackets, wires and bands to push the teeth closer together. You can now pick rubber and metal in more neutral colors that closely match the natural shade of your teeth, or you can choose brighter colors.


Invisalign does the same thing as braces but in a completely different way. Your orthodontist will fit your mouth with aligners that are completely clear. You then wear those aligners for at least six weeks before the dentist fits your mouth for a new set. Every time you come in for an appointment, the dentist will use a slightly smaller aligner to straighten your teeth. If you need Invisalign or braces to straighten your teeth, need fillings for a few cavities or need any other type of dental help, meet with a cosmetic dentist from Associated Family Dentistry in Glendale, AZ today.
