Are your teeth as straight as you would like? If you have been thinking about options to bring your smile into position, talk to your dentist today! We can help you explore the differences between traditional orthodontic correction with bracket-and-wire braces as well as alternatives such as clear aligners. Each service approaches the same goal differently. For patients in their teen years, or with more significant spacing problems, braces offer the strength necessary to correct major gaps. For those with milder malocclusion cases, clear aligners from Invisalign offer a more discrete method of straightening your smile. Both options provide serious functional benefits in addition to enhancing the cosmetic appearance of your teeth. Enjoy better protection against tooth decay and gum disease when your smile is more easy to clean.
At your Temecula, CA, dental practice, we look forward to helping you decide between your orthodontic appliance choices. We will take careful measurements of your teeth and other oral structures to let you know which service best suits your smile. By obtaining an expert opinion, you can feel confident moving forward with your decision!
The Traditional Approach To Orthodontics
Because teenagers have jawbones that are more malleable than adults, bracket and wire metal braces can swiftly bring their smile into position over months. This is one of the reasons why we recommend bringing your young one to regular dental checkups at least twice per year. At each meeting, we can monitor the progression of their smile’s growth and identify early on when they would benefit from orthodontic care. After applying braces, we ask that a patient visit every so often to make adjustments to the treatment wire until their smile’s movement is complete.
Choosing Clear Aligners From Invisalign
We are proud to offer clear aligner correction from Invisalign. When selecting this method, we will take digital images of your smile to project what your teeth will look like after the treatment finishes. If you like what you see, we send the same information to an offsite lab where your aligner trays are crafted. You will wear each series of aligner trays as they gradually pull your teeth into position. Because they are removable, you can enjoy brushing your teeth and eating meals without accumulating debris in your orthodontic appliance.
