Are your teeth crooked or crowded? If you have been thinking about ways to enjoy a straighter smile, explore your options for orthodontic correction. We could help you bring your smile into a more desirable position with traditional braces or a clear aligner therapy solution. Each appliance seeks the same goal of bringing your teeth into a more uniform appearance with a different approach. Braces consist of permanent metal brackets that attach to the front of each tooth connected by an archwire that applies the required tension. Clear aligners on the other hand provide more discreet smile correction. By taking measurements of the current position of your teeth, we can create a BPA-free tray that fits neatly over each row of your smile. As you wear your trays over weeks, they gently pull your teeth closer to their goal.
At your Riverside, CA, dental office, can help you decide between different options for correcting your smile. By taking into account your level of bite misalignment, we can steer you toward a solution that works best. When you understand the differences between braces and clear aligners, you can feel confident moving forward with treatment.
Selecting Traditional Orthodontic Braces
If you are a teenager, we may suggest traditional braces to align your smile. This is because at this age, your jaw is rather malleable, allowing the teeth to move more quickly into location. Similarly, we suggest braces for adults who have more extreme problems with dental misalignment. Traditional orthodontics can be stronger than the alternative when significant correction is required.
Clear Aligners From Invisalign
When you visit our office for clear aligner therapy, we begin by taking a digital imprint of your smile. Using intraoral cameras, we project an image of what your smile will look like after correction to help you make your decision. Moving forward, we send the imprint to an offsite lab where a set of corrective trays are created by the Invisalign team. When you receive your clear aligners, you will wear each pair of trays in succession as they bring your teeth further into alignment.
