Riverside, CA, OrthodonticsIs your smile as straight as you would like it to be? If you have been thinking about your options for bringing your teeth into position, we are happy to help you make the decision. By discussing treatment methods with your dentist, we can offer insight into which services would best benefit your unique situation. While both clear aligners and traditional braces seek the same goal of straighter teeth, each has their different advantages. For patients with more extreme misalignment, bracket-and-wire braces have the strength necessary to correct crowding and crookedness. On the other hand, clear aligners perform this work with more discretion. Their translucent appearance makes posing for photographs nearly identical to your look before treatment.

At your Riverside, CA, dental office, we can meet with you to examine your level of malocclusion and provide advice on moving forward. The degree to which your smile is out of position provides guidance in selecting an orthodontic appliance. At the end of your treatment schedule, you can enjoy an esthetically pleasing grin that is also easier to clean. That is because uniform teeth offer the ability to access their entire surface when brushing and flossing. Enjoy decreasing your risk for tooth decay and gum disease when enhancing your bite!

Selecting Traditional Braces For Orthodontic Correction

If you are a teenager or a parent seeking orthodontic correction for your child, we may suggest traditional braces. This is because early in life, the jaw is more malleable, allowing it to shift the position of your teeth more quickly with powerful bracket-and-wire braces. This method is also quite valuable for adults of all ages who experience more extreme degrees of misalignment. By attaching a permanent bracket to the front of each tooth, we thread an archwire that provides the appropriate level of tension until your smile is in alignment.

Clear Aligners From Invisalign

If you would like to keep your treatment a secret, Invisalign provides a nearly invisible method for aligning teeth! To create your aligner trays, we take digital images of your smile and other oral structures. This allows us to project what your teeth will look like after correction. At an offsite lab, a technician fashions custom trays that you will wear throughout your treatment. Because they are removable, you can enjoy brushing and flossing with ease.
