Young beautiful smiley woman with braces

Are your teeth as straight as you would like them to be? If you have problems with gaps, crowding, or other malocclusion, consider exploring options for orthodontic treatment. By understanding the differences between traditional braces and other alternatives, you can see how attainable a straighter smile can be. While many focus on the esthetic improvement of a more uniform set of teeth, pursuing orthodontic correction offers a host of functional and oral health benefits as well. For those with more severe cases of malocclusion, you may prefer the power of bracket-and-wire metal braces. If you have a more mild case, clear aligner therapy from Invisalign can straighten your smile with discretion.

At your Temecula, CA dental practice, we can help you choose from the best orthodontic treatment to give the results you desire. When you come into our office, we will perform a full evaluation of your bite and provide guidance on correcting it. When you feel comfortable with each treatment option, you can feel secure moving forward toward your dream smile!

Selecting Bracket-On-Wire Braces

We may suggest traditional metal braces for our younger patients and those with more advanced problems with their bite. In adolescence, our jaws are far more malleable, which allows correction with braces to more quickly pull your teeth into position. By applying a set of metal brackets to each tooth, we are able to thread an archwire that can apply tension in the appropriate locations. By coming in for periodic adjustments, we are able to continually pull your teeth toward their more uniform look.

Clear Aligner Therapy

If you prefer, we also offer clear aligner therapy from Invisalign. This appliance differs from traditional braces by consisting of a removable, flexible plastic that is nearly invisible when worn. By allowing you to take off your treatment during meals and when brushing, clear aligners make it easier to maintain your oral hygiene during treatment. To design your set of trays, we will take images of your bite to create a digital impression. Upon receiving your set of trays, we will provide instructions on how to wear them and when to move to the next pair.
