At Arsmiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we use state-of-the-art CAD/CAM digital technology to help patients enhance their smiles and improve their oral health with orthodontic dentistry in Akron, Ohio.
We offer various orthodontic treatment options for children, adolescents, and adults.
Although many people use orthodontics as a cosmetic treatment to straighten teeth and improve the appearance of their smile, the therapeutic goal of orthodontic dentistry is to correct malocclusion (improper bite).
Correcting your bite protects teeth from damage and decay and improves speech and chewing ability, helping you achieve a healthy smile for life.
Traditional braces have been used in orthodontic dentistry for many decades. They are a reliable treatment for children and adults with simple or complex dental issues.
Metal or ceramic brackets are bonded to the teeth and connected with wires using small rubber bands, adjusted over time, gradually shifting teeth into their proper position.
For older teens and adults, we offer cosmetic tooth-colored ceramic brackets for a subtler look.
Invisalign/Clear Correct: Clear Aligner Treatment
Invisalign and Clear Correct orthodontic treatment feature a series of custom-made, clear, removable aligners that gradually shift teeth. They are effective, affordable treatment options that can straighten and close gaps between teeth, resolve overcrowding, and correct mild malocclusion and other imperfections.
Unlike traditional braces, these discreet, comfortable aligners are removable, which means you can take them out for eating, brushing your teeth, photographs, and on social occasions. They are an excellent choice for teens and adults.

Invisalign uses a custom-made, clear, fabricated mouthpiece to help align your teeth to their correct positions. Most people won’t even notice you are wearing them.
- Straight teeth in the same or shorter time as traditional braces
- Clear aligners that are subtle and discreet
- Much more comfortable than braces
- Custom-made just for your teeth
Have been going here for a few years now. They do dentistry and orthodontics and a always a pleasure to be with. Are always nice and welcoming, and I have never had any trouble with them. Now have braces and visit them every 2 to 3 weeks and am currently just getting out of an appointment now. They just redid one of my lower wires, and it feels great. Please visit here if you are looking for a quality experience. A pleasure to be with, nice to talk to. Will hopefully be continuing to visit in later years to come.
We love helping people realize their beautiful smiles and are proud to be one of the top practices offering Invisalign in the Akron, Ohio, area.

Retainers help keep teeth in place after orthodontic treatment is completed. They may be fixed or removable and consist of plastic, wire, or a combination of both.
Pre-Orthodontic Care for Kids and Adolescents
Pre-orthodontic treatment in childhood and adolescence can prevent crowding, misalignment, and impaction of permanent teeth, allowing your child to avoid complicated orthodontic treatments and other dental problems down the road. Several dental appliances can be used to treat malocclusion in children and adolescents. Each child is different, and there is no set age at which children may require some sort of orthodontic or pre-orthodontic care.
