Teen Girl With Braces SmilingDo you have a problem with the spacing of your teeth? Dental misalignment can create doubts in your appearance as gaps create a distraction when you smile. When you seek treatment, you can obtain meaningful cosmetic and functional benefits from different orthodontic solutions.  Straighter teeth improve your ability to bite and chew and they can even be easier to clean when it is time to brush and floss!

Your Corona, CA dentist can move your teeth into a more desirable position with both traditional bracket-and-wire braces and Invisalign clear aligners. Both solutions can improve your confidence in your smile with a caring approach.

Exploring Solutions For A Straighter Smile

When your teeth are not aligned properly, malocclusion reduces your ability to enjoy a comfortable bite and feel pride in your appearance. Awkward gaps, extreme overlaps between teeth, and shifts to the symmetry of your bite undermine how you look to others, but the effect is not solely cosmetic. These problems can lead to uneven wear and tear as certain teeth receive more stress from biting and chewing than others. This can cause future oral health problems as the weakened structures become more susceptible to chipping and breaking. Seeking alignment treatment can address your esthetic desires while relieving the unneeded stress and damage from an uneven bite.

Beginning Treatment With Traditional Braces

Traditional bracket-and-wire metal braces have been a trusted and proven solution for bringing teeth into alignment for multiple decades. This treatment may be necessary when more severe problems with spacing are present than can be treated by clear aligner alternatives. The service works by placing brackets onto each individual tooth that are then connected by threading a wire. At repeat visits, we can adjust the tension of the wire to bring your teeth into position.

Invisalign Clear Aligners Are A Discreet Alternative

Invisalign clear aligners can treat spacing issues with a series of BPA-free plastic trays that attach directly to your teeth. This removable solution allows for easy cleaning when brushing and flossing each day. You can enjoy eating without worrying about debris building up on your appliance. Your dentist can discuss your preferences and evaluate if you are a candidate for treatment with this alternative to traditional metal braces.
