Unlocking Smiles: The Benefits of Orthodontics for All Ages

Orthodontic treatments aren’t just for teenagers anymore—they’re for everyone, from adolescents to adults. Besides giving you a dazzling smile, orthodontics can actually boost your oral health. You see, misaligned teeth and wonky bites aren’t just cosmetic issues—they can make brushing and flossing a real chore, cause discomfort, and even lead to pain. But here’s the good news: orthodontic treatment can fix these problems in as little as six months.

Issues Orthodontics Can Correct:

Overbite – when your upper teeth stick out too far.
Spacing – those annoying gaps between your teeth.
Underbite – when your lower teeth jut out too much.
Crowding – when your teeth are crammed together or impossible to floss.
Crossbite – when your teeth don’t fit together properly.
Pain – Say goodbye to chronic headaches, jaw pain, or upper back and neck discomfort.

Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment:

Orthodontics isn’t just about aesthetics—it’s about improving your overall oral health and well-being.
By fixing misalignments and bite issues, orthodontic treatment makes brushing and flossing easier, alleviates discomfort, and prevents future pain.
Whether you’re dealing with chronic headaches or struggling to chew properly, orthodontics can provide relief and enhance your quality of life.
Thanks to advancements in orthodontic technology, treatment times have shortened considerably, with some cases taking as little as six months to achieve remarkable results.
Seeking advice from an orthodontic specialist ensures you get personalized care tailored to your specific needs and goals, ensuring a healthier, happier smile at any age.

Let's Look At Treatment Options

Traditional Braces

When you think of braces, you might picture those bulky metal brackets with wires. However, modern dental brackets are now smaller, less noticeable, and just as effective. They’re easier to clean and much more comfortable than their older counterparts.

Clear Brackets

For those seeking a more discreet option, we also offer clear brackets that are popular among our adult patients. These brackets provide the effectiveness of conventional orthodontics while maintaining a subtle appearance. At a quick glance, no one will even realize you’re wearing braces.

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners, such as Invisalign, have become increasingly popular. These custom-made transparent trays gradually shift your teeth into their ideal position. They fit snugly and precisely, and can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing, and for special occasions like important meetings or dates.

The Cost of Orthodontic Treatment in Summerlin, Las Vegas

With a typical insurance plan, orthodontic treatment typically ranges between $3000 and $5000+ out-of-pocket. However, after an oral exam, we’re happy to provide an accurate quote to determine your actual out-of-pocket expenses. For those without insurance, the cost generally falls between $4000 and $6000+.

Determining the Cost:

When assessing the cost of orthodontic treatment, several factors come into play:

The current condition of your oral health, including teeth and gums.
The extent of movement required for your teeth.
Your choice of orthodontic treatment.
The duration of your treatment.

Tailored Treatment Plans:

As every smile is unique, the best way to determine the most suitable treatment and associated costs is through a consultation. By sharing your smile goals and undergoing a thorough examination, we can craft a personalized treatment plan that aligns with your needs and preferences.

Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

    I had a great experience with Dr. Truong and the entire staff during my new patient and filling appointments. Everyone is so kind, and the staff works together as a team. Dr. Truong and Kris, the hygienist, were thorough and great listeners. During my filling appointment I had painless numbing injections done by Dr. Truong, and he worked quickly while being so precise. I would recommend Dr. Lobato & Associates to anyone!

    I have been with doctor Lobato for over 20 years, BEFORE that time l went thru 3 dentist, before l met him. A few years ago they changed my plan and l had to change to another dentist. Which was a very miserable time for my teeth. I finally got the opportunity to change my health and Dr. Lobato was one of the first doctors l went back to. Now once again my teeth 😬 and my dental health is perfect again. Not only is he great so is his staff.
