Our Orthodontic Services

At Hills Dental Studio, we offer a variety of orthodontic treatments to meet the unique needs and preferences of each patient. Our services include:

  • Ceramic braces: These discreet braces use clear or tooth-colored brackets and wires to blend in with your natural teeth.
  • Aligners: We offer clear aligner systems, such as Invisalign, that use a series of custom-made, removable trays to gradually shift your teeth into their desired positions.
  • Removable orthodontic appliances: We also offer a range of removable appliances, such as retainers and expanders, that can help improve the alignment of your teeth and jaws.

Our orthodontic treatments are designed to be as comfortable, effective, and efficient as possible. We use advanced technology and techniques to ensure that your treatment plan is tailored to your unique needs and goals.

What to Expect During Your Orthodontic Treatment

Getting orthodontic treatment at Hills Dental Studio is a straightforward and stress-free process. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Initial consultation: During your first visit, we will assess your dental health, take X-rays and photographs, and discuss your goals and concerns with you. We will then recommend a customized treatment plan that fits your needs and budget.
  • Treatment Phase: Depending on the type of treatment you choose, you may need to visit our office every few weeks for adjustments and check-ins. We will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your braces or aligners and what to expect during each phase of your treatment.
  • Final fitting: Once your treatment is complete, we will fit you with any necessary retainers or appliances to help maintain your new smile.

We understand that orthodontic treatment can be a big investment of time and money, which is why we are committed to making the process as easy and affordable as possible. We offer flexible financing options and accept most insurance plans.

Benefits of orthodontic treatments

Orthodontic treatments can offer a range of benefits for both your dental health and your overall well-being. Here are some of the top benefits of orthodontic treatments:

  1. Improved oral health: Straighter teeth are easier to clean and maintain, which can help prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental problems.
  2. Enhanced appearance: Orthodontic treatments can help improve the alignment, spacing, and overall appearance of your teeth, which can boost your self-confidence and make you feel more attractive.
  3. Better bite function: Misaligned teeth or jaws can cause problems with chewing, speaking, and even breathing. Orthodontic treatments can correct these issues and improve your bite function.
  4. Reduced risk of dental injury: Crooked or protruding teeth are more susceptible to injury from sports or other accidents. Orthodontic treatments can help align your teeth and reduce your risk of dental trauma.
  5. Improved digestion: Properly aligned teeth can help improve the digestion of food by allowing you to chew properly and break down your food more effectively.
  6. Better overall health: Poor dental health can be linked to a range of systemic health problems, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and respiratory problems. By improving your dental health through orthodontic treatment, you can help reduce your risk of these and other health issues.

Overall, orthodontic treatments can have a significant impact on your dental health, appearance, and overall well-being. If you are considering orthodontic treatment, talk to your orthodontist about the specific benefits that you can expect to achieve with your treatment plan.

What is the difference between Orthodontists and Dentists?

When it comes to dental care, there are many professionals who can provide services to help maintain the health and appearance of your teeth. Two common types of dental professionals are orthodontists and dentists, and it’s important to understand the difference between the two.

 Orthodontists are specialists who focus on correcting problems with teeth and jaws, such as misaligned teeth, bite issues, and other malformations. They receive specialized training beyond dental school to provide services such as braces, aligners, and other orthodontic treatments.

On the other hand, dentists are general practitioners who provide a wide range of dental services to help maintain oral health, such as cleanings, fillings, extractions, and more. While dentists may offer orthodontic treatments like braces or aligners, they typically refer patients to orthodontists for more complex cases that require specialized attention.

Frequently Asked Questions

While orthodontic treatments can be highly effective in correcting teeth and jaw misalignment, there are some limitations to these treatments. Here are some limitations of orthodontic treatments:

  1. Limited Effectiveness on Jaw Growth: Orthodontic treatments can only correct teeth and jaw misalignment caused by dental factors, such as crowding or spacing issues. They cannot correct misalignment caused by issues related to jaw growth, such as a misaligned bite due to skeletal issues.
  2. Treatment Duration: Orthodontic treatments typically require several months or years of treatment, depending on the severity of the misalignment. During this time, patients need to be diligent about maintaining good oral hygiene and attending regular appointments. 
  3. Relapse: After orthodontic treatment is completed, there is a risk of relapse if the patient does not maintain good oral hygiene or wear retainers as directed by the orthodontist.
  4. Risk of Complications: Orthodontic treatments, like any medical procedure, carry some risks of complications, such as gum disease, tooth decay, or injury to the teeth, gums, or jaw.
  5. Patient Compliance: Orthodontic treatments require patient compliance and cooperation in terms of maintaining good oral hygiene, attending appointments, and wearing any necessary appliances as directed by the orthodontist. If patients do not follow these instructions, treatment outcomes may be compromised.

Orthodontic treatment is recommended for individuals with teeth and jaw misalignment issues such as overbite, underbite, crooked teeth, overcrowded teeth, or gaps between teeth. These issues can cause functional problems such as difficulty chewing or speaking, as well as aesthetic concerns.

Orthodontic treatments are generally not painful, but some discomfort and soreness may be experienced during the initial adjustment period, after the placement of braces or aligners. Over-the-counter pain relievers can help alleviate this discomfort.

While both dentists and orthodontists work to improve patient’s oral health, there are some key differences in their training and the types of treatments they offer. Here are some things that an orthodontist does that a dentist doesn’t:

  1. Specialized Training: Orthodontists receive specialized training beyond dental school that focuses on diagnosing and treating teeth and jaw misalignment issues, including training in orthodontic appliances such as braces and clear aligners.
  2. Orthodontic Treatment Planning: Orthodontists are specially trained to evaluate and diagnose bite and alignment issues and create personalized treatment plans to address these issues.
  3. Advanced Orthodontic Techniques: Orthodontists are trained in a variety of advanced orthodontic techniques to address complex alignment issues, including the use of headgear, functional appliances, and orthognathic surgery.
  4. Focus on Alignment Issues: While dentists focus on maintaining overall oral health and treating issues such as tooth decay and gum disease, orthodontists focus specifically on diagnosing and treating alignment issues.
  5. Use of Orthodontic Appliances: Orthodontists use a variety of appliances to correct alignment issues, including traditional braces, clear aligners, and other devices that apply gentle pressure to the teeth and jaws to move them into the correct position.

My daughter and I have had such a pleasant experience with The Hills Dental Studio family so far, we first consulted with Dr Surprise who was very professional, patient and thorough in explaining the whole braces procedure and soon thereafter the journey began, oh wait, I have to send a shout out to Fatu, the most amazing Receptionist, forever smiling and warm , as well as Mokgadi the Dr's assistant, you guys are awesome!). FFW.. when it was time for her to have some teeth extracted Dr Craig took over, OMG I was so nervous about this surgery because it was a little complicated, but Dr Craig was so gentle, and the recovery was phenomenal. He is such a great Dr and it is evident that he and Dr Surprise truly love what they do.

I went to Hills Dental Studio earlier today to remove my wisdom tooth. Dr Craig assisted me. I was very nervous but Dr Craig communicated with me throughout the procedure to ensure I was still comfortable and not in pain. This helped me relax. Thank you Dr Craig for your kind and professional service. I will definitely be recommending Hills Dental Studio to everyone I know.
