Interesting Facts

Wires activated by body heat used in today's braces originally were developed by NASA for use in the space program.

The first "braces" were constructed by Pierre Fauchard in 1728. Fauchard's "braces" consisted of a flat strip of metal, which was connected to teeth by pieces of thread.

The time it takes to complete orthodontic treatment is nearly half of what it used to be with the advances in wire technology.

Everyone's teeth shift throughout life, whether you've had braces or not. . . that's why retainers should be worn as long as you want your teeth to stay straight.

Nearly 25% of patients will have to have braces again because they didn't wear their retainers as instructed.

If you are right handed, you will tend to chew your food on the right hand side of your mouth. If you are left handed, you will tend to chew your food on the left side.

The American Association of Orthodontists is comprised of more than 16,600 members in the United States, Canada and abroad.

" Very Pleased Kid. I have currently been a patient at Aces Braces with Dr. Rao. I think I probably wouldn't make through braces if it wasn't for Dr.Rao and the great staff. They're the friendliest people you will ever meet, they're like your family when you go to your appointments.

Plus everywhere you look in the office you see flawless smiles from the receptionists to the doctor. You just cant help but feel that your in the right hands at the Aces Braces. I am very pleased that I got Dr.Rao as my Orthodontist. By the way thank you for the great laughs and for the opportunity to make my smile better.

" Aces Braces. During the past time I’ve been here at the orthodontist, I always feel welcome over here. They always have a great attitude and a smile that makes you feel comfortable.

The first time I came here I felt very shy but right away when I meet them they always have a way to get to me and make me laugh. I think they do a great job over here. I also think everyone of them has a great way to make u feel like if u were at home.

" The Best in Las Vegas! I started taking my Niece in March of '09; since we started coming here, we have always been given the best service ever. Dr. Rao is caring and very professional. Penny and Jasmine are the best. All the staff has really made us feel like part of their FAMILY. There has not been a time where I don't feel like driving all the way from N. Las Vegas to the other side of Las Vegas. We will be sad when it's time to get her braces off, and no longer have to go.

I do how ever have another niece that just got her braces put on by none other than the great Dr. Rao and her staff. We will make it a point to visit. THANK YOU
