Is your smile as straight as you would like it to be? If you have been thinking about options to correct your teeth, talk to your dentist about exploring orthodontics. We can take a look at the extent of your misalignment and discuss whether or not you would benefit from braces or clear aligner treatment. While each solution approaches the same goal of bringing your smile into a more pleasing position, deciding between treatments depends on your condition and goals. For teenage patients or those with a more extreme amount of malocclusion, we may suggest the unparalleled strength of traditional orthodontics. The adjustment of a metal archwire allows us to fine-tune the pulling of your teeth over the corrective period. For a more discreet approach, a set of clear aligners provides a translucent set of trays that are nearly invisible to the naked eye. This option may be more attractive for those who would like to keep their decision private. No matter which option you choose, we will partner with you through the process to achieve your dream smile!
At your Riverside, CA dental practice, we help patients understand the functional benefits of orthodontics beyond their cosmetic improvement. While a straighter appearance may begin your interest in braces or clear aligners, learning how they benefit your bite should seal the deal! A straighter smile is one that is far easier to clean, improving your oral health for decades to come!
Traditional Metal Braces
We track the development of young smiles into adolescence to determine if kids would benefit from wearing braces. In the teen years, a person’s jaw is more malleable and thus able to easily shift position to accommodate dental movement. This option enjoys strength not reached by clear aligners.
Orthodontic Treatment With Invisalign
During an Invisalign consultation, we will take a digital imprint of your smile to project what it could look like after treatment. This same software allows technicians at an offsite lab to create treatment trays that fit neatly to your specific smile. Over the course of a year or more, you change trays about every two weeks as they gradually pull your teeth further into the correct position. Because clear aligners are removable, you can enjoy an easier time brushing your teeth and enjoying your meals.
