"They were prompt, courteous and very professional"
5 50Reviewed 24 Sep 2018 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Teeth Cleaning
Needed a cleaning (stain removal). They were prompt, courteous, and very professional. Everything they did was explained to me before they did it. They did an excellent clean and polish after a quick check. It was a very good value.

The clinic is perfectly located in Playa. There was no issue with my limited Spanish. My appointment time was met in a timely matter. I will return.
Total Amount Paid $47

Antibiotic and Antifungal Treatment

The goal of orthodontic treatment is a beautiful smile and a good bite—meaning straight teeth that mesh well with the teeth in the opposite jaw and look great. A good bite makes it easier for you to bite, chew and speak. Many people find a beautiful smile adds to self-esteem, self-confidence and leads toward career advancement.  We live in a competitive world and a great smile can give you the edge.

Accelerated Braces™

With Propel or Acceledent get faster treatment, around 40% less time.

Adult Braces

Some adults never received orthodontic treatment as children to correct problems such as crooked or crowded teeth, overbites and underbites, incorrect jaw position or jaw joint disorders. If left untreated, these problems can result in tooth decay, gum disease, headaches and earaches, as well as speaking, biting or chewing problems.

Like children, adults can receive the same benefit of an improved smile and oral health from wearing braces.

Actuallly we offer clear braces (Damon Clear), aligners (Invisalign) or Lingual braces behind the tooth.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are created with aesthetics in mind. The ceramic brackets themselves are designed to resist 

 when cared for properly. Ligatures, or rubber bands that hold the arch wire in place, are often white or clear to compliment the brackets. Even the metal arch wire will appear less noticeable as it blends in with your brackets.

Child Braces

Early treatment (also known as Phase-One) typically begins around age eight or nine (Phase-Two will begin around age 11 or older). The goal of early treatment is to correct the growth of the jaw and certain bite problems, such as underbite. Early treatment also helps to make room for permanent teeth to come in properly, lessening the chance of extractions in the future.

Clear Braces

Same as Ceramic Braces

Damon™ Braces

With the innovative technology of the , it's easier than ever before to improve your smile in far less time, with greater comfort and with greater results and benefits that last a lifetime.

  • Healthier teeth and gums
  • Confidence to excel in school, work and personal life
  • Broader smile
  • Enhanced facial features
  • Clearer speech for interviews, public speaking, etc.

We are certified provider for Ormco-Damon System. 

Align Technologie

Fixed Braces

Most patients require the use of fixed orthodontic appliances (‘train tracks’) to have really straight teeth, and achieve the best possible improvement of their smile. Small precisely designed metal or ceramic buttons called brackets are stuck/bonded to each tooth. 

Modern brackets are quite small, and they cover a relatively smaller area of each tooth, making braces more attractive than they used to be.

Incognito™ Braces

In this case we offer Harmony lingual braces. Why ? Harmony uses passive self-ligating braces making treatments faster and more confortables

Metal Braces

Traditional braces consist of standard metal brackets that are adhered to your teeth with an adhesive and connected by wire. They require periodic tightening so pressure can gradually straighten your teeth and align your jaw as needed. While metal braces brackets are still the most common, other treatment options are available today.

Orthodontic Retainer

Orthodontics retainers are custom-made devices, made usually of wires or clear plastic, that hold 

 in position after Orthodontics treatment. They are most often used  after 

 to keep teeth in position while assisting the adjustment of the surrounding 

 to changes in the bone.

cirugía o cualquier método de realinear los dientes

Removable Braces

Removable braces can only undertake simple tooth movements . They are often used as part of more complex treatment, with either fixed or functional appliances.

Six Month Smiles™

In my opinion, a “Six Months Smile” is not possible with any type of treatment, whether it is with braces or Invisalign.  Teeth need time to move and must move within that bodies own natural physiological ability to adapt to the change in bone and soft tissue.  If one wanting to line up what we call the social six, which are basically the upper anterior teeth, this could possibly be

 done in six months without aligning the bite.
