Braces in Pleasant Grove
Faster, more affordable, and less discomfort
Dr. Daynes utilizes a revolutionary system of braces in our office called Tip Edge Orthodontics. The benefits of this system include that we can use less force in moving teeth which means less discomfort for the patient, and we enjoy shorter overall treatment times. Most of our patients wear braces for only 6 to 22 months. Our fees are often more affordable than traditional Orthodontists. We also offer a reduced “tune-up” fee for patients who wore braces in the past, but have experienced some relapse.

Esthetic "Clear Invisible" Braces
For an additional fee we offer white ceramic brackets which move the teeth similarly to our metal brackets but without the metal. We even have white wires which can be used during stages of your treatment. For additional information you can download our patient brochure on clear brackets / wires. Want no signs of braces?

Many orthopedic problems are the result of a narrow palate. We can use orthopedic appliances to widen the upper jaw. This helps avoid tooth extractions and leads to wide, beautiful smiles. We treat young children with problems that affect the size and shape of their jaws. Corrections made at age 7 to 9 years old may eliminate the need for more extensive treatment later.
Is it necessary to pull teeth to get the best results?
Although extractions are necessary in some cases, it is now possible to effectively treat most cases without extracting teeth.
Orthodontist or general dentist?
An orthodontist, and a general dentist practicing orthodontics, are both dentists. They are both given the same license to practice. There is no additional special certificate required to be able to practice orthodontics. The two doctors are differentiated in how they learn orthodontics. An orthodontist is awarded a postgraduate degree after taking two years of full-time orthodontic study at a dental school sanctioned by the ADA. A general dentist can obtain comprehensive orthodontic knowledge by taking postgraduate courses, which are also sanctioned by the ADA. Dr. Daynes has been involved with an intensive part-time two year course which allows him to offer his patients orthodontic services and still be your regular full service Dentist. Our braces are often less expensive than Orthodontists and we can handle cleanings and fillings / extractions if indicated without going to multiple offices during treatment.
