Braces are an orthodontic treatment option that can help you achieve a smile that is straighter and healthier. One of the most common orthodontic treatments available, braces work to improve your smile by gradually, gently realigning your teeth. Braces consist of a system of brackets, wires, and bands. The brackets are attached to the front of your teeth and are connected to each other through the use of a metal wire and bands. As we adjust the wire, the braces guide your teeth to their ideal position. Ceramic braces are also often available, which are the same color as your teeth for a more discreet orthodontic option.

If you’ve ever wanted your smile to be straighter and more attractive, braces may be right for you. With braces, we’re able to correct orthodontic issues such as:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Problems with the bite, including cross bite, open bite, underbite, and overbite

During your treatment, you’ll visit our office on a regular basis, usually every 4-6 weeks, so we can adjust your braces to continue progressing towards a straighter, healthier smile.  Dr. Barmett and his team will help you reach all of your oral health and appearance goals through personalized, high-quality care. We can schedule these appointments to take place at our Richfield, Utah office, or in our Brace Caboose in any of the eight locations we service in the Central Utah area.  To learn more about braces, please contact us today either in Richfield at 435-896-4930 or toll free at 1-888-BRACE-ME.

Children's Orthodontics

The pre-teen and teenage years are a great time for orthodontic treatment.  The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children visit an orthodontist for the first time by age 7.  We encourage you to bring your child in by this age and let us assess their need for orthodontics.  At the initial consultation, Dr. Barnett will evaluate your child’s oral growth and development to determine if treatment is necessary, and if it is, when we should begin.  When we’re able to evaluate patients early, we can often detect and correct potential problems before they become more serious. This can save you and your child time, as well as money.   To make your child’s appointment at Barnett Orthodontics and to learn more about early orthodontics for children, please call us at 435-896-4930 or 1-888-BRACE-ME.  We can schedule complimentary consultations to take place at our Richfield, Utah, office or in our Brace Caboose in any of the eight locations we service in the Central Utah area.

Early orthodontic treatment can be advantageous because a child’s teeth haven’t finished coming in; this allows us to guide their eruption and address any problems at the earliest possible stage. Whether your child needs removable or fixed appliances, early orthodontic treatment can help to:

  • Provide more room for crowded erupting teeth
  • Preserve space for teeth that have not yet erupted
  • Improve facial symmetry by manipulating jaw growth
  • Reduce the possible need for tooth extraction
  • Reduce the overall treatment time

If early treatment is indicated, we’ll create a personalized treatment plan for optimal results. For more information and to set up your child’s complimentary orthodontic consultation, we invite you to call or visit us today!


Adult Orthodontics

You’re never too old for orthodontic treatment!  About 25% of orthodontic patients are now adults.  At Barnett Orthodontics, we offer lots of treatment options for adults so you can enjoy a healthier, more beautiful smile at any age.  In fact, our oldest patient is nearly 80!  Most patients want a smile that looks nice; however, not everyone knows properly aligned teeth can help improve your oral health and function as well.  Orthodontic treatment can help you avoid severe tooth decay, gum disease, bone loss, TMJ/TMD pain, and irregular wear of your teeth. We want you to know that a straight, healthy, beautiful smile is within your reach – no matter your age.

In addition to traditional metal braces, more discreet options are often available so you can maintain a natural, professional appearance while we straighten your teeth. During your initial visit with Dr. Barnett, we’ll review all of the available options and help you choose the one best suited to your situation.

 To learn more about the benefits of adult orthodontic treatment, we welcome you to call or visit us today. We look forward to helping you achieve a straighter, healthier smile!   We’d be happy to schedule you a complimentary consultation to take place at our Richfield, Utah, office or in our Brace Caboose in any of the eight locations we service in the Central Utah area.  Give us a call today at 435-896-4930 or 1-888-BRACE-ME to make your appointment with Dr. Barnett, and learn more about what adult orthodontics can do for you.



Radiance® Clear Braces

A beautiful smile can increase your self-confidence as well as improve your health. At Barnett Orthodontics we offer clear braces using the Radiance® treatment system, a discreet alternative to traditional braces.  Radiance® clear braces are a reliable treatment option for straightening your teeth. These braces are nearly invisible, allowing you to achieve the smile you have always wanted while maintaining a natural, professional appearance. Radiance® brackets are made of polished sapphire, second only to diamond in durability. Each jewel is milled to the appropriate shape and then heat polished into a smooth, clear, and remarkably strong bracket.  These clear sapphire brackets are just as effective as metal braces in correcting all types of tooth misalignment and offer greater control than treatments that use invisible aligners. To sum up, Radiance® clear braces offer all the effectiveness and durability of metal brackets and all the aesthetics of removable aligners without sacrificing your appearance or comfort.

To learn more about Radiance® clear braces and make your appointment with Dr. Barnett, call our office in Richfield, Utah, at 435-896-4930.


Clear Aligners

One of the newest options for improving your smile is the use of clear aligners.  You may have heard the name “Invisalign”.  Invisalign is the name of a specific brand of clear aligner.  At Barnett Orthodontics we use an in house aligner fabrication system.  Unlike traditional braces, aligners can be removed for eating and cleaning.  They’re also virtually invisible.  Aligners may be just the perfect option to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.  If you’d like to see if they’re right for you call our Richfield, Utah office at 1-435-896-4930 or 1-888-BRACE-ME for a complimentary consultation today.

3D imaging


3D Imaging and Scanning

At Barnett Orthodontics we feature 3D imaging and scanning technology to aid us with your treatment. This state-of-the-art technology helps give Dr. Barnett a better understanding of your teeth and their supporting structures.  It also helps him provide the most effective treatment recommendations to improve your smile. Please call us at 435-896-4930 or 1-888-BRACE-ME to learn more about 3D imaging at our Richfield, Utah office and to schedule your consultation with Dr. Barnett.

Digital scanning is a modern, efficient, and comfortable way to take precise impressions of your mouth. If you’ve ever had to have a traditional impression or mold taken when you’ve visited the dentist, you know they can be unpleasant and uncomfortable. We’re pleased to utilize digital technology to eliminate the need for messy, goopy impressions. While this can make the experience more comfortable for any patient, it’s especially good for patients who gag easily. Our digital scanning is less invasive than traditional impressions and molds and provides our team with extremely accurate records.

Some of the other benefits of digital scanning technology include:

  • Digital impressions can be used for creating dental restorations, such as crowns, as well as Invisalign® style orthodontic aligners.
  • No messy “goop”
  • The scanner can be quickly taken out of your mouth if you ever feel uncomfortable, and we can easily start and stop the scanning process as needed
  • Digital impressions generally require less time than traditional impressions, helping to make your appointment more efficient.

If you’d like to learn more about digital impressions and other advanced technology we use at our office, please call us today.
