No matter how complex the dental alignment problem is, we can straighten your teeth and give you a fantastic smile in a casual and fun environment.
What do Traditional Braces Correct?
Class 1 Malocclusion: Crooked Teeth
Teeth are biting properly, and the top and bottom teeth are aligned, but the teeth are crooked, twisted, or crowded together.
Class 2 Malocclusion: “Overbite”
Also sometimes called a deep bite or buck teeth. In this class, the upper teeth are pushing forward and not meeting properly with the bottom teeth, and are instead biting over the lower teeth.
Class 3 Malocclusion: “Underbite”
This is similar to an overbite, except that the lower teeth are positioned too far forward.
This is similar to an underbite, where the lower teeth are out in front of the upper teeth. For a proper bite, the front teeth should be forward and in front of the lower teeth when you bite.
Gaps in Teeth:
Sometimes a patient has a gap between two teeth or even small gaps between several teeth. A gap between the two front teeth can be unsightly but is easy to correct with braces.
“This is an excellent place to bring your kids for orthodontia.”
I have been taking my son to A Perfect Smile with Doctor Taylor and all his staff. The team is pretty awesome. Every visit has turned out to be very smooth so far. Dr. Taylor always finds a way to create a conversation with my son to make him comfortable, even after applying the retainer/expander in his mouth.
“The assistants have also been very helpful and knowledgeable in the performance of the different procedures, from replacing the wire, to installing the braces, to actually placing the expander/retainer on the mouth cavity. As for the team, I am very happy with every one of them.
“Let’s talk about the building: Clean, cool, fresh, the flow of traffic is very smooth and restrooms are always nice and clean. The building comes with two waiting rooms and one theater. Yes, my kids love the theater. This is an excellent place to bring your kids for orthodontia.
“I recommend Dr. Taylor and his services. And as a final note, today’s assistant Alicia did an amazing job with my son’s teeth!” – Oscar C.
An Introduction to Braces
Braces Will Give You a Great Smile and a Comfortable Bite
Traditional braces are a combination of wire, elastic bands, and plastic brackets fitted onto your teeth.
The first step is to attach the metal brackets with a special form of glue. These metal brackets, along with elastic bands, hold the wire in place against the side of your teeth.
We then adjust the wire length to apply gentle pressure on your teeth, encouraging them to move into a new position.
Over time — and after a few adjustment consultations — your teeth will shift into their new alignment.
Both my daughters had such an amazing experience at this orthodontist. The staff was so professional and courteous. Dr. Taylor was super nice, definitely would recommend getting your braces here. Roly is great! He was patient and made this process great as my little one had sensitive teeth and his techniques really helped.” – Bertha
My son got his braces off today, and we are so happy with the results. He can’t stop smiling! He had them on for about 2 years and we had a pleasant experience at every appointment. Dr. Taylor and his staff are great!” – Connie G.
