Why Choose an Orthodontist?

Experience and Versatility: Why Dr. Philips is the Orthodontist for You

Orthodontists and dentists are not the same, although all orthodontists are dentists. Orthodontists, because of their additional training and board certification, are able to handle complex orthodontic cases that normal dentists may find challenging.

Furthermore, our orthodontics, Dr. Phillips, is board-certified – a title earned by only one out of every three orthodontists. With this designation comes years of experience, which means Dr. Phillips has likely treated a similar condition to yours during his extensive practice.

Don’t settle for less than the best when it comes to your orthodontic care. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Philips today and discover why he is the orthodontist for you.

Treatment For All Ages

At age 7, when the adult teeth begin to grow, the American Association of Orthodontists advises that children receive their first orthodontic evaluation. Our specialists agree, consequently offering to check your child’s teeth and jaw bones to look for signs of early alignment issues. In summary, early treatments make it easier to spot issues like crowding, crossbite, overbite, or underbite, which can make it difficult to chew, speak, or maintain good oral hygiene.

Discreet Way to Align Your Smile!

An innovative orthodontic procedure called Invisalign® straightens teeth without the use of conventional braces by using clear, removable aligners. Dr. Phillips holds the title of “Invisalign Platinum Provider,” which acknowledges his depth of knowledge in this particular treatment. Additionally, because the aligners are removable, patients can eat and drink anything they want and keep up with oral hygiene more easily.

Classic Braces for a Beautiful Smile

Metal braces are the most commonly known orthodontic treatment and are effective in correcting various teeth misalignments. High-quality, fixed stainless steel brackets are joined to each tooth by the braces’ archwire, which applies pressure to the teeth to shift them into their proper positions. They remain a reliable and effective orthodontic treatment for many patients and are the treatment of choice for people who desire a fixed device.

Surgical Orthodontics

Retainers for a Lifetime of Smiles

Patients with significant jaw misalignments that cannot be treated with braces or aligners alone may benefit from surgical orthodontics, technically known as orthognathic surgery. In such cases, an orthodontist and oral surgeon often work together to surgically realign the jawbones. We are no exception. Dr. Phillips will collaborate closely with your oral surgeon, offering direction and assistance all along the way.
