Patients whose upper jaw is narrower than their lower jaw can experience issues like

  • Crowing
  • Overlapping
  • Impacted teeth
  • Misaligned bite
  • Breathing & airway issues (like sleep apnea)

Palatal expanders correct this issue by pushing outward on the back teeth, creating the necessary jaw spacing for all the teeth to sit comfortably.

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners like Invisalign are perfect for patients who want the corrective benefits of braces, but don’t want to deal with metal brackets and wires.

Clear aligners are worn like retainers and can be removed for eating or sports. They’re often more comfortable than traditional braces while still achieving the same results.

Ochoa Orthodontics proudly partners with uLab Systems to offer even more options for clear aligner treatments.

uLab’s technology allows for a truly one-of-a-kind orthodontic treatment experience. Your doctor can make adjustments to your treatment plan on every tooth individually, then your uLab aligner is 3D printed just for you.

Metal & Clear Empower 2 Brackets

Empower 2 brackets are built with Advanced Smile Technology that offers comfortable and flexible brace design.

Empower 2’s design helps make your office visits shorter, since your doctor doesn’t have to change rubber bands on them every time. Empower 2 uses self-ligating brackets, which are smaller and less visible than traditional brackets. They’re also easier to brush and floss around.

Ask your doctor if Empower 2 brackets are right for your treatment plan!

TMJ/TMD Treatments

Millions of Americans suffer pain due to inflammation of the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ). The joint itself is commonly abbreviated as TMJ, while TMD (temporomandibular disorder) is any number of conditions affecting the joint.

This joint is located on both sides of the skull, where the top of the jaw attaches to the skull. It can become irritated due to misalignment of the jaw or due to stress, causing pain in the jaw, face, and neck. If you grind your teeth together while sleeping, this can also inflame your TMJ.

Tell your doctor if you’re experiencing soreness, restricted movement, or grinding and clicking feelings in your jaw. We offer a variety of treatments that can help soothe TMJ/TMD conditions and relieve your jaw pain.

Surgical Orthodontics

Most people only need regular orthodontic treatments to correct their dental issues, but some patients may require orthodontic surgery to treat more severe jaw conditions or irregularities.

Surgical orthodontics is often paired with braces to help the jaw and teeth stay set and ensure that proper healing and alignment continue.

In the event that you or your family member needs surgical orthodontics, our doctors and staff will communicate with your regular dentist regarding your treatment plan. We’ll make sure to answer all of your questions about the necessary procedures.
