About Orthodontic Braces
Traditional braces are one of the most efficient ways to straighten teeth and avoid oral health problems that can be set off by teeth that are out of alignment. Traditional braces can help all patients get their teeth, jaw, and lips in ideal alignment to avoid tooth decay, continuing pain, gum disease, trouble chewing, speech concerns, and more. Braces can also amend teeth that are packed in, projecting, or irregularly spaced, not to mention cross bites, overbites, underbites, and jaw trouble. Even though braces are generally connected to younger patients, braces by our dentists at Stone Creek Dental Care in Chandler, AZ can help every patient get a healthier, more gorgeous smile.

"I highly recommend this facility! I have been to 2 other dentist's offices in tx and this was by far the best. I was heading to work and began to have excruciating pain at a site that was previously treated elsewhere. My "home dentist" was unavailable so they sent me here. I was treated promptly and every member of the staff including the manager Tara showed concern and desired to help. They were patient while explaining what was going on and Dr. Hayes did not make me feel rushed at all. Literally everyone was amazing. I don't know how I would have gotten through the day without them. I HATE going to the dentist so they made sure I was comfortable. This was a clean and very friendly professional environment. Bravo Stone Creek!"- T.B. / Google / Feb 14, 2020

What to Expect with Orthodontics
Orthodontic braces for youths and adults are unique based on the patient's needs and concerns. The timing of treatment will vary depending on the severity of the case, but younger patients generally takes less time and the patient will often avoid other oral problems. The orthodontic braces are little brackets that are fixed to each tooth that are then joined with wires that gradually, but constantly adjust the teeth into their correct position. Patients should return to Stone Creek Dental Care in Chandler, AZ to have their orthodontic braces and teeth checked about once a month by our dentists at Stone Creek Dental Care until the orthodontics are ready to be detached. While wearing braces, the individual may find it more difficult to clean their teeth, but it is important to follow a good home care routine and keep the teeth strong and healthy during orthodontic treatment.
Orthodontics Treatment Aftercare
As soon as the metal braces are detached, the patient will often be given a retainer to wear that will prevent the teeth from changing back to their original position. A retainer can be attached to the non-visible side of the teeth or crafted as a mouth piece that can be taken off considering the patient's lifestyle and needs. Patients should maintain a good home oral care routine, including consistent brushing and flossing, and visiting our dentists at Stone Creek Dental Care for deep cleanings and dental exams.
