6 Reasons to Visit an Orthodontist in 2021? | Chandler, AZ

An orthodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention and treatment of malpositioned teeth, misaligned bite patterns, and the overall physical attributes of your teeth. Our Orthodontist in Chandler Dr. James Heaton and his practice Smiles of Chandler can help deal with facial irregularities and jaw alignment issues.

Top Six Reasons to Visit an Orthodontist in Chandler:

There are multiple habits we develop as kids and adults which lead to a bad set of teeth. Visit a Chandler Orthodontist as a New Year Resolution in 2021 for the following reasons:

  1. Fixing You a Perfect Bite:
    When your teeth are not aligned properly, the canines and molars do not function to the best of their ability. This can lead to faster wear and tear of your teeth. Having your teeth aligned helps in chewing your food correctly thus leading to better health.
  2. Helping With Protruding Teeth Issue:
    Sometimes a tooth is forced to grow out of line due to lack of space. This not only impacts the way they look but also creates larger issues later. Getting a Braces Treatment in Chandler can help overcome this problem efficiently.
  3. Improving Facial Aesthetics:
    Visiting a Chandler Orthodontist Orthodontist and dentofacial orthopedic can help with the entire structure of your jaw, gums, and teeth. This will not only improve your jawline in terms of appearance but also help in providing appropriate support to your lips, having a positive impact on the shape of your face.
  4. Closing the Gap:
    To have a good smile it is necessary to have your teeth aligned. Teeth that are spaced very far from each other do not look aesthetic. Considering the jawline has limited space, this may also impact the space the molars have to grow. Chandler Orthodontics can help you bring your teeth together.
  5. Spacing out Overcrowding:
    One of the most common issues is overcrowding, this is when your teeth grow too close to each other. This leads to a lot of plaque related issues since overcrowding does not leave space for cleaning. This issue can be resolved with the help of a complete treatment plan to ensure you have perfectly aligned teeth.
  6. Preventive Orthodontics:
    An Orthodontist in Chandler can prevent these issues if consulted on time. The American Association of Orthodontists says that children should have a check-up with an Orthodontist no later than age seven. Solutions range from dental braces to minor corrections.

Our Reviews

Dr Heaton is as kind as he is competent. He treats me like a person, not a paycheck and I feel like I can trust him to only recommend what I need. I also referred an employee of mine who needed serious dental care and did not have a lot of money. Dr Heaton was flexible and kind and so helpful. Highly Recommend.

Most people dread going to the dentist but I'm always excited to go especially when it means seeing all of the wonderful people who work there. My family has been going here for more than 20 years and I've never had a bad experience. You can count on walking out the door with a huge (minty fresh) smile on your face. Highly recommended!
