For a smile that will go straight to the heart!

Sometimes there are jaw irregularities that also need to be addressed. Surgical orthodontics, also known as orthognathic surgery, utilizes comprehensive orthodontic treatment alongside jaw correction surgery to correct these issues

1st Phase:

We work to develop the jaw (primarily in children) to set the grounds for straight teeth that will accomplish a healthy, functional, and aesthetic result.

2nd Phase:

After a short resting period, we make sure each tooth has an exact location in the mouth where it is in harmony with the lips, cheeks, tongue, and other teeth.

Invisalign does not require wires or metal brackets! The aligners are crystal clear removable trays you can take off to eat and are replaced every two weeks. With these customized and removable aligners, you can straighten your teeth and experience the benefits of a great smile, without having to deal with metal braces.

Questions About Our Orthodontic Services?

Get the answers below.

  • Will I have to wear metal braces?

    Braces have come a long way in the last few years. Wire braces are much less noticeable than they used to be and the latest materials move teeth faster with less discomfort to patients.

    But there are also clear braces such as Invisalign that can be used to correct dental issues and have become popular with our patients because of their barely-there appearance.

    Invisalign cannot be used for all dental issues. During your consultation with our Kennewick dentist, Dr. Zuroff, you can discuss which options will work best for our smile.

  • How long does orthodontic treatment last?

    Treatment can last anywhere from 6 months to three years depending on the severity of the problems that need correcting.

    Also, the patient’s diligent use of any prescribed rubber bands or headgear is an important factor in getting the most effective and quick treatment.

    Interceptive or early treatment procedures may take as few as six months.

  • My braces are making my mouth sore. Is that normal?

    This is perfectly normal and we promise your mouth will not be sore forever! It is not uncommon for your lips, cheeks, and tongue to become irritated for one to two weeks as they toughen and become used to the braces.

    To relieve the pain, we recommend dissolving one teaspoon of salt in eight ounces of lukewarm water. Swish and gargle this solution in your mouth for just a couple of minutes, but do not swallow the salt water.

  • Are there foods I need to avoid when wearing braces?

    When wearing wire braces you will need to avoid some foods, but don’t worry you will soon be snacking on popcorn and potato chops again! In the meantime, you should avoid chewy, crunchy, sticky, or hard foods.

    If you are using Invisalign you can remove the plastic aligners while eating so you can eat whatever you normally do.
