The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that an orthodontist examine children by the time they are 7 years old. Even though children at the age of 7 still have baby teeth, early examination helps to prevent problems before they begin.
While your child’s teeth may look straight, there may be underlying problems with the way adult teeth may be coming in, with deep bites, open bites, and crossbites, with the relationship of the upper and lower jaw, with tooth crowding. Many times parents don’t realize the symptoms that might be indicators of more serious problems.
Our early screening program looks at more than just teeth, we help with identifying problems that can be associated with sleep disorders, breathing and airway complications and TM Joint stability. Snoring, grinding teeth, and bed wetting are sometimes symptoms that point to an underlying problem Ai Orthodontics can help diagnose. Poor breathing posture, mouth breathing, thumb habit, snoring, teeth grinding lip biting etc
At Ai Orthodontics we want to help kids develop a healthy Absolutely Incredible smile so we maintain an observation program to see kids every 6 months to make sure any concerns are monitored and remediated as soon as possible.
Our Safari Kids Club is designed for younger kids to monitor their development and help teach them about taking good care of their teeth. We have prizes to reward them for oral hygiene and games to keep them engaged.
Adolescence is that awkward transitional phase where kids transform into adults. It’s also the time where families invest in their young adults to help give them confidence with a beautiful smile!
Orthodontic treatment can correct crooked and crowded teeth, a misaligned bite, and jaw problems. Braces also eliminate problems with eating, speaking properly, or with keeping teeth clean. With the help of great technology (hyper link to tech page) Ai Ortho works to make a beautiful smile easier and faster to achieve than ever before!
Our team focus to help young adults learn about hygiene, manage their braces and have a positive experience that leads to an Absolutely Incredible smile. We have a variety of treatment options including:
Colorful and Clear Braces
Orthodontic treatments have come a long way from the old giant metal braces and now provide many options for treatment and customizations. There is nothing traditional about braces anymore! Braces come in a variety of styles and systems that customize therapy and your braces! You can choose from a variety of colors to reflect your personality when it comes to braces.
Clear Braces are also a great option, now so clear they’re almost invisible! Allowing you to have the great therapy results of colorful braces and the convenience of invisible aligners.
Damon braces use new technology that reduces the number of adjustments, improves hygiene over traditional braces and speeds up treatment times. We’ve got the expertise to help determine if these self-ligating braces will be a good option for you.
Insignia treatment is tailored to the individual patient and gives you a completely unique experience in orthodontic treatment. Each bracket is precisely calculated to affect your tooth movement in the most optimal way, resulting in fewer office visits, shorter office visits and faster treatment time.
As an alternative to more traditional orthodontic solutions Invisalign offers an orthodontic adjustment method that uses a series of clear aligners, or trays, to gradually adjust your teeth and alignment. We at Ai Orthodontics can use Invisalign to correct many concerns that previously were thought to only be improved by traditional braces. Each therapy program consists of custom made aligners to help move your teeth much like traditional braces. Aligners should be worn for 22 hours a day and only removed for eating, and brushing your teeth to make sure your therapy completes on schedule.
Lingual braces are placed behind the teeth (by the tongue and palate), rather than in front, and therefore offer a great cosmetic alternative for those who want their teeth straightened, without the braces showing. And unlike Invisalign treatment, these can’t be taken out while in therapy so ensure compliance and timely completion of therapy.
Not all orthodontists can offer lingual braces but here at Ai Orthodontics we’ve got the training and technical expertise to offer our patients another great option for therapy.
Seeking orthodontic treatment as an adult has become much more common and easier these days. Now with shorter therapy periods and non-obtrusive options for moving teeth we can help you gain more confidence in your smile! With a wide variety of therapy options including, Braces, Invisalign, Lingual Braces, Passive Ligation Straight Wire, and in-house custom 3-d printed clear aligner therapies for mild cases we’ve got the tools to give you an absolutely incredible smile!
Dr. Issa and team provide a multi-disciplinary approach to helping patients who are looking for corrective jaw, or orthognathic surgery.

Temporormandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorders, can cause pain in your jaw joint and the muscles that control your jaw movement. Orthodontic treatments can help correct and alleviate the symptoms of TMJ.
