Crooked, gapped, or misaligned teeth can be embarrassing, uncomfortable, and even lead to oral health issues.
Orthodontics work to gently guide your teeth into proper alignment for a healthy, functional, and beautiful smile.
The dentists at Foothill Dental in Salt Lake City, UT, can use comfortable orthodontic appliances to straighten your teeth.
What Is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a field of dentistry that specifically addresses alignment issues of the teeth and jaw. Orthodontic treatments performed at our Salt Lake City dental practice include Six Month Smiles® clear braces and Invisalign® clear aligner trays. These systems work to gently guide your teeth into proper alignment. Both forms of treatment are established orthodontic methods used by dentists and orthodontists and can offer the same results as traditional metal braces.
Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment
Improved Oral Health
Crowded or misaligned teeth can make it difficult to properly brush and floss, negatively impacting your oral health. By correcting these issues, you have better access to all surfaces of your teeth and can maintain good oral hygiene. Straight teeth and an aligned bite may also prevent TMJ issues.
Some patients find that crooked or gapped teeth cause them to feel self-conscious about their smile. Undergoing orthodontic treatment like braces or Invisalign can correct the issues with your teeth, resulting in a straighter, more beautiful smile that makes you feel confident.
Shouldn't I See an Orthodontist?
Orthodontists specialize in aligning the teeth and jaws, but that doesn't mean a dentist isn't qualified to treat orthodontic issues. The dentists at our Utah practice serving Salt Lake City and beyond are proud to provide patients with general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry solutions, including orthodontic treatment. We can provide dental care for your whole family under one roof, so you don't have to familiarize yourself with both a dentist and an orthodontist.

Foothill Dental is fantastic! The office has a warm and caring environment and the dental care is terrific. Rafael went the extra mile to make things happen for us before we were part of the practice and did even more throughout the course of the treatment plan. Dr. Bailey and her team were talented, thoughtful and incredibly kind. It made all the difference.View on Google
