Riverside, CA, OrthodonticsIs your smile as straight as you would like? If you have been considering options to bring your teeth into a more attractive position, talk to your dentist! We can examine the extent of your misalignment and discuss your options for orthodontic improvement. Depending on your age and the nature of your alignment problems, we could suggest traditional braces or alternative treatment with Invisalign clear aligners. While each option approaches the identical goal of a more uniform smile, each does so with its benefits. A set of metal braces has unparalleled strength to bring significant problems with crowding or crooked teeth into position. We recommend this option for teens who have malleable jaws that respond favorably to traditional treatment. Clear aligners offer the benefit of a more discreet corrective experience. Their translucent appearance allows you to tell others about your decision on your own. Whichever treatment you select, you can enjoy a brand-new smile within a year!

At your Riverside, CA, dental practice, we discuss all of the benefits of correcting your smile with our orthodontic patients. While the esthetic effects are quite obvious, did you know that improving the uniformity of your grin benefits its function as well? Straighter teeth are easier to clean, meaning you will enjoy far greater protection against decay and infection after your orthodontic experience.

Selecting Traditional Braces

For our younger patients, we track the development of their smiles beginning at their first visits. This allows us to recommend orthodontic correction during their teen years when all of their adult teeth have arrived. By attaching a metal bracket to each tooth, we thread an archwire that applies tension wherever it is needed. This allows us to custom bring each tooth into position at regular adjustment visits.

Enjoying Clear Aligner Treatment

We also offer Invisalign clear aligners to help you correct your smile spacing issues. By taking a digital imprint of your smile, we can project what it will look like after treatment. Sending this file to an offsite lab allows us to create a set of trays you will wear over the coming months. By sticking to your treatment each day, you can enjoy an attractive new smile without the distraction of metal braces.
