Incredible results and inspiring journeys; see some of our patients' before and after photos next time you visit our practice. These wonderful transformations are ACTUAL PATIENTS TREATED under Dr. Mai's care. If you are searching for the best orthodontist in Las Vegas for braces or invisalign, then we always recommend asking for original before and after treatment photos of patients with all different types of malocclusion (bad bites) to demonstrate your orthodontist's skill level.
Notice we provide before and after photographs true to the american board of orthodontics format.* Considered the gold standard of quality care.
From every possible view and angle (right side, left side, front, upper and lower views) all teeth should be perfectly straight and have good heathly bites. What is a bad bite? Well bad bites also known as malocclusion can be hard to detect, however good bites can be easy to see if you know what you are looking for. Good bites have all upper and lower teeth in contact, no gaps, and should interdigitate or interlock like the fingers of two clasped hands. You will see this relationship from the side view in all of the after or post treated photos below. Heathly bites feel better and function better when chewing or speaking.
Before and after photos only showing front teeth are misleading.
Front view photos may look straight however can hide bad bites (poor fit of upper and lower teeth) and buck teeth (upper teeth too forward) that can only be detected with side view photos. For educational purposes, some examples are provided below.
