When it comes to improving problems with the spacing of your teeth, learning all of your options for orthodontic corrections can help you make the best decision. Different appliances seek the same results of straighter teeth, but provide different benefits during the corrective period. For example, clear aligners are removable to offer easier cleaning, while traditional braces provide the tension to correct more severe alignment issues. When you understand the differences, you can gain confidence when consulting with your dentist.

At your Riverside, CA, dental practice, we can help you bring your teeth into a more desirable position with modern orthodontic solutions. When you meet with the team members at Riverside Dental Group, we evaluate your level of malocclusion to determine which therapy can work for you. With both Invisalign clear aligners and traditional metal braces, we offer health and cosmetic improvement only orthodontics can provide!

The Benefits Of Orthodontic Correction

While the esthetic benefits of a straighter smile appear self-evident to most, did you know that correcting the position of your teeth offers desirable improvements to your oral health? When teeth are misaligned or begin to crowd, your health can seriously suffer. You may have difficulty cleaning the entire surface of your teeth as oral bacteria hide in the nooks and crannies of a crooked smile. This can increase your risk for tooth decay and gum disease to further degrade your smile’s appearance and health. By straightening your smile, you gain the ability to more easily clean each tooth and remove the cavity-causing plaque that degrades your enamel and threatens your smile.

Invisalign Clear Aligners

Clear aligner treatment with Invisalign provides a system of aligner trays that you wear throughout your day to gradually pull your teeth into position. This alternative to traditional braces is made from a BPA-free material designed specifically for your unique smile. Because they are removable, clear aligners allow you to practice your standard oral hygiene routine when brushing and flossing your teeth.

Bracket-And-Wire Braces

Traditional bracket-and-wire metal braces can improve your oral health, appearance, and quality of life with strength that goes beyond the alternatives. This option is suitable for almost all patients, so discuss with your dentist which treatment is best for you.
