Frequently Asked Questions About Smile Correction

Question: How soon should a child see Dr. Alpan?

Answer: The American Association of Orthodontists recommend children see an orthodontist no later than age seven.

Question: Do you offer treatment for TMJ disorder?

Answer: Yes, your Las Vegas Orthodontist offers treatment options for TMJ disorder depending on the severity of a patient’s jaw pain. TMJ occurs when excessive strain is placed on the jaw joints, causing a variety of painful symptoms in the head, neck, and jaw.

Question: What is Invisalign?

Answer: Instead of metal wires and brackets, Invisalign employs a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually and gently reposition your teeth. The aligners are comfortable and can be removed before meals or special occasions. Many teens prefer Invisalign to traditional orthodontics.

Question: Do you offer Incognito braces?

Answer: Yes. Incognito braces are a series of custom-made brackets and wires that attach to the lingual, or back-facing, side of your teeth. Incognito improves smiles while remaining completely hidden from view.

Question: What are Damon braces?

Answer: Using self-ligating braces, the Damon System repositions teeth faster and requires fewer adjustments. The brackets and wires are smaller than traditional braces, providing both a more inconspicuous and more comfortable method of smile correction.
