What is orthodontics?
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry focused on correcting the alignment of the teeth. If the teeth are crowded, misaligned (crooked), or gapped, orthodontics can correct tooth alignment to improve oral function, health, and appearance. We are proud to provide orthodontics in Las Vegas, Nevada to help you achieve the smile of your dreams.
What is occlusion?
Occlusion is how the teeth fit together. Also referred to as the “bite,” proper occlusion is important for maintaining good oral health and function.
For your convenience, we offer several orthodontic and occlusion (bite) treatments at Luth & Heideman Center for Dental Care. These include:
- CEREC® Single Visit Crowns
- Cosmetic Dentistry
- Dental Technology
- Family/Pediatric Dentistry
- Oral Surgery and TMJ Care

Do I need orthodontics?
Orthodontics can greatly improve your smile. By straightening your teeth, you will enhance not only the beauty of your smile, but also your oral health; straighter teeth are at a lower risk for tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other dental problems. If you have noticed that your teeth are misaligned, orthodontics might be the right treatment for your smile.
If you are interested in scheduling an orthodontic consultation with one of our talented dentists, Dr. Luth and Dr. Heideman, we invite you to call our office today. We will be happy to answer your questions and provide you with the high-quality, affordable care that you deserve.
