Orthodontic Dentistry in Akron, OH
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, OH.
We offer a variety of 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, which can help 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 by using small rubber bands, which are adjusted over time, gradually shifting teeth into their proper position.
For older teens and adults we offer cosmetic tooth-colored ceramic brackets for a more subtle 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 social occasions. They are a great choice for teens and adults.

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 adolescents can prevent crowding, misalignment, and impaction of permanent teeth, which can allow your child to avoid complicated orthodontic treatments and other dental problems down the road. There are a number of dental appliances that 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.
