If you are interested in orthodontic treatment, you may have several questions about what that treatment will be like, and what to expect during your adjustment. You can also have questions about the benefits of going through corrective work. Your Temecula, CA dentist can answer your questions about orthodontic work and its benefits for you, just as they can review your different options for treatment. In addition to helping patients by providing traditional metal braces, we can discuss the value of clear aligners for your treatment, or more discreet bracket-and-wire braces. We can also talk about the potential oral health benefits of addressing problems with malocclusion!

Can I Use Something Besides Metal Braces To Straighten My Teeth?

We may be able to approve you for treatment with Invisalign clear aligners instead of metal braces! Invisalign appliances fix teeth positioning by gradually correcting gaps and overlaps. Each aligner that you receive in your set will discreetly shift your teeth throughout the day. If you are not a good candidate for these appliances, know that we also offer clear braces and gold braces, which use harder-to-notice materials than traditional metal braces to move teeth.

Is Orthodontic Treatment Just Recommended For Its Cosmetic Benefits?

You can certainly feel better about your smile after orthodontic treatment! However, that does not mean this is only recommended for its ability to improve your smile. Through orthodontics, we can improve your bite function and lower your risk for TMJ disorder. We can also straighten teeth that overlap, making them harder to effectively clean.

Is There An Alternative To Orthodontic Work?

For some patients, we may be able to recommend cosmetic dental treatment to address minor spacing problems. With porcelain veneers, we can cover teeth that are too far apart and effectively close a gap, or change the look of teeth that overlap. Those with relatively minor alignment flaws can find that cosmetic work produces exciting results in less time! However, if orthodontic work is recommended, remember that the adjustment can give you more confidence in the way you look and also correct certain issues that could be affecting your oral health.
