Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry focused on correcting irregularities of the teeth and jaw, especially in how they align and fit together. There are several orthodontic treatment options available, and our team will make certain that you receive the one that is right for your personal needs. Through orthodontics, we can correct teeth that are:

  • Misaligned
  • Crowded
  • Gapped and spaced

With orthodontic treatment, we can also correct problems with the alignment of the bite, including overbites, underbites, open bites and crossbites. Modern orthodontic treatment is faster, more comfortable and more effective than in years past, making now an excellent time to straighten your smile.

Orthodontics and Oral Health

While many dental patients think of orthodontics as an effective way to improve the aesthetics of their smiles, orthodontic treatment can also be very beneficial to your oral health and function. Properly aligned teeth are generally at a lower risk for oral health concerns like tooth decay and gum disease. Orthodontics and aligned teeth can also make it easier for you to chew, eat and speak properly. For any treatment your smile needs, our dentist and team are dedicated to helping you achieve a straighter, healthier and more beautiful smile!

Orthodontics for Children

With custom orthodontic solutions, San Jose dental team can help your child maintain a healthy smile throughout their life. Children are great candidates for orthodontics because it can be easier to move teeth or the jaw while they are still growing.

At AZ Dental, our orthodontists will evaluate your child’s oral health and monitor their growth patters to identify any current or future problems. Dr. Amer can then recommend any treatments that can correct these problems early on, saving our patients time and money. Early orthodontic treatment allows us to guide young patients through tooth eruption and address any problems at the earliest possible stage. Whether your child needs removable or fixed appliances, early orthodontic treatment can help to:

  • Provide more room for crowded erupting teeth
  • Preserve space for teeth that have not yet erupted
  • Create facial symmetry by guiding jaw growth
  • Reduce the possible need for tooth extraction
  • Reduce the overall treatment time

When you bring your child to our San Jose dental practice, our dentist will be able to determine whether treatment is needed and when it should begin. If early orthodontic treatment is needed, we will create a personalized treatment plan for optimal results. 

Orthodontics for Adults

It's never too late to get that smile you have always wanted! Drs. Nguyen, and Amer offer orthodontics for adults in San Jose, CA. Whether you are looking to straighten your teeth or correct a misaligned bite, our orthodontists can help you know which treatment is right for your situation and lifestyle.

At our practice, we want you to know that a straight, healthy, beautiful smile is within your reach — no matter your age. For adult orthodontics, we offer traditional metal braces and discreet aligners to help you maintain a natural, professional appearance while you straighten your teeth. During your initial visit with our dentist, we will review all of your treatment options and help you choose the one you need for optimal results.

As an added bonus, orthodontic treatment can help you avoid severe tooth decay, gum and bone loss, TMJ (TMD) pain, and the irregular wear of tooth enamel.

Straighten your teeth with the modern, often preferred treatment of Invisalign®! Invisalign® aligners are a great choice for patients who are seeking a more discreet orthodontic treatment option for straightening their smile. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten teeth.

Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth. As you switch sets of aligners about every two weeks, your teeth will gradually and gently move to their proper positions. You will also visit our San Jose office on a regular basis during treatment to make certain that your smile is progressing as planned.

Generally, Invisalign aligners can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues that are normally treated with braces. Our dentist may recommend Invisalign treatment to correct:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gapped and spaced teeth
  • Certain problems with the bite, such as an overbite, open bite, underbite or crossbite

Invisalign aligners are not only discreet; they're also very comfortable because they are custom made from smooth, thin plastic. The aligners are also easily removed as needed to eat, brush and floss.
