Face of a young woman with braces on her teeth

If you have been thinking about straightening your teeth, orthodontic therapy can offer wonderful results in less time than you may think. By designing a custom appliance to bring your teeth into position, we can help close gaps, open crowding, or treat other problems with malocclusion. Because each treatment option has its unique benefits, exploring which bests work for you can help you select an appliance. Traditional metal braces, for example, provide the strength necessary to correct more serious forms of spacing problems. We often suggest these for adolescent or young adult patients whose jawbones are a bit more malleable than their more mature counterparts. If you prefer, Invisalign clear aligner therapy provides a more discreet option for straightening smiles. The translucent nature of your treatment trays masks their appearance, allowing you to notify others of your decision on your terms. Whichever you choose, we are happy to help support your oral health and beauty!

At your Riverside, CA, dental practice, we can examine the extent of your bite problems to help you determine which treatment gives the best results. By scheduling a consultation with one of our dentists, we can put you on a path to a more healthy smile that can improve your confidence. We find that when your teeth are in a better position, they become easier to maintain throughout the rest of your life!

The Power Of Traditional Braces

When we suggest metal braces, it is often due to more advanced problems with a patient’s bite. By attaching a bracket to each of your teeth, we can then thread an archwire that applies pressure to each tooth. Over the coming months, you return to our practice to receive wire adjustments that gradually move your smile into position. These recurring visits help us monitor your smile’s progress until your treatment finishes.

Clear Aligners Offer An Alternative

Invisalign clear aligners offer a popular alternative for straightening your teeth. By taking a digital impression of your smile, we can use software to render a prediction of what your teeth will look like after treatment. We then send your file to a lab where a set of treatment trays are created that you will wear over the coming months. Invisalign reduces the number of dental visits you must make as when each tray is complete, you simply move on to the next one in your set.
