Orthodontics, such as braces and clear aligners can give you the straight teeth and proper bite that will help you chew better, smile more often, and maintain your oral health. Southern Nevada Orthodontics offers various types of orthodontic treatments that are all available for everyone, including clear ceramic braces, and “invisible” clear aligners. With all the advancements in technology and dentistry, today children and adults have so many options for orthodontic care! We want to provide as many orthodontic treatment options as we can to help encourage our patients to achieve the optimum healthy smile they need.

Clear appliances such as Invisalign use a series of removable, comfortable aligner trays to straighten teeth.
