Adult Braces - It’s Never Too Late for a Bright Smile

By Arthur Orthodontics on Tuesday, May 3, 2016 2:26 AM

Braces may be representative of teenage years because that’s when most people undergo orthodontic treatment. However, there is a growing number of adults who wear braces. According to the Academy of General Dentistry, about one million Americans over 18 wear braces. There are many reasons why adults choose to wear braces, but one thing is for sure, braces can offer many different health benefits, no matter what age you are.

The Importance of Continuing Education

By Arthur Orthodontics on Thursday, February 25, 2016 12:45 AM

The tools and techniques of orthodontics are remarkably complicated, and they make permanent changes in the alignment of the teeth, the jaws, and even the entire facial structure, so it's little wonder that orthodontists go through years of specialized schooling in addition to dental school. But while many people are familiar with the rigors of an orthodontic education, few understand that that education doesn't end after graduation - and that's why continuing education is so important. At Arthur Orthodontics, Dr. Arthur and Dr. Ortiz make continuing education programs a high priority.

New Years Resolutions Your Teeth Will Love

By Arthur Orthodontics on Friday, January 1, 2016 12:17 AM

Let's be honest: we could all take a little better care of our teeth. Life moves fast, and it's all too easy to neglect caring oral and orthodontic care - sometimes flossing falls by the wayside, we forget to clean our Invisalign aligners, or we don't wear our retainers as much as we ought to. We understand how this happens, but it's important to remember how important orthodontic and oral care is, as it’s vital to maintaining your most valuable asset: your smile! The New Year is almost here, and that presents a great opportunity for renewing our commitment to orthodontic health. For this blog, we'll give you a few ideas for New Years Resolutions your teeth are sure to love.

Are Dental Appointments Necessary During Orthodontic Treatment?

Here at Arthur Orthodontics, we get a lot of questions about the orthodontic treatment process - and one of the most common is as to whether or not it's necessary to see a regular dentist during orthodontic treatment. For many patients, it seems like going to the orthodontist should be enough - after all, aren't they already looking at your teeth? We know there's a lot of confusion around this topic, so we're going to dedicate this blog to settling this issue once and for all.

Importance of Retainers

Why Do I Have to Wear a Retainer?

At Arthur Orthodontics, we know that there's one moment in the course of orthodontic treatment that every patient chooses as their favorite - getting their braces off! We love to see the look on patients' faces when they see their brand new smile, and it brings us joy to watch their excitement as they realize that this change is permanent and their new smile will last the rest of their lives. But as we always remind them, they're not out of the woods just yet. Now begins the retention phase, one of the most critical parts of ensuring a healthy, beautiful, and long-lasting smile.
