Is it time for you to take on problems with poor teeth spacing? Many people have doubts about their appearance because they have gaps between teeth, or because of excess space that acts as a distracting flaw. As you look into treatment, you can find that there is more than one way to approach orthodontic work. At our Riverside, CA dentist’s office, we can provide you with information on the use of traditional metal braces, but we can also take the time to discuss Invisalign treatment. With Invisalign, you have a discreet alternative approach to care that fixes spacing problems. While it can be appealing to have access to this kind of approach, there are times when more significant problems with gaps and overlaps will require the corrections made possible with metal braces.

You Can Explore Treatment Options If You Want To Straighten Your Smile

Simply put, it can be hard to feel fully confident in a smile affected by spacing flaws. The reasons for this include both the specific flaws this problem creates, such as awkward gaps and overlaps between teeth, as well as problems with a general lack of symmetry that undermines how you look. There are different degrees to this problem, and there are different ways in which it can be addressed. Sometimes, patients can actually undergo cosmetic dental work to take on minor problems. However, in many cases, some kind of corrective work with aligners is recommended. We offer traditional bracket-and-wire braces to make these adjustments, and we can also provide qualifying patients with information on treatment with Invisalign.

Beginning Treatment With Traditional Bracket-And-Wire Braces

Traditional metal braces have delivered important results for many people over the years, and they can be a necessary form of treatment when more significant spacing problems need to be fixed. Your procedure will rely on a set of brackets that are affixed to teeth and moved with wires that connect to them. Over time, the corrections made with your braces can resolve problems with teeth that overlap appear recessed or pushed forward, have spacing issues that leave gaps, and have any other alignment issues that hurt how you look.

Using Clear Aligners To Make Smile Adjustments

For those who qualify, treatment with Invisalign clear aligners can have a strong appeal because they make corrections to teeth that are poorly spaced but do not require you to have an appliance that is fixed in place or easy to see. You will instead use a series of removable aligners to encourage the right movements. All of these appliances will be made from a clear material, and all are easy for you to take out when you need to eat or clean your teeth.
