to people of all ages, and would like to tell you more about the discreet options now available.

Awareness of Timing

If you are the parent of a child that needs orthodontics, remember that catching and treating problems early on remains the ideal scenario. According to the American Dental Association, children should be seen by an orthodontist by seven years of age. Crooked and misshapen teeth provide hiding places for bacteria and food particles to become trapped. Treating misaligned bites (malocclusion) and overlapping teeth early in life doesn’t only help appearance, but can also aid in the prevention of cavities.

But It’s Never Too Late

If you weren’t able to get braces as a child, or you had them and your teeth shifted, products like Invisalign are often favored. Metal braces don’t corner the market for misaligned teeth anymore. In addition to Invisalign, orthodontics options in Temecula, CA can include ceramic and lingual braces. Ceramic braces connect to teeth using brackets and adhesive, similar to traditional metal braces, but with a more subtle appearance. Lingual braces utilize metal supports on the backs of teeth instead of the front, making them much harder to discern when you speak.  Lingual and ceramic braces are both suitable options for patients seeking to correct their malocclusions in the most inconspicuous way possible.
