Arden Arcade Orthodontist
When it comes to correcting bites and straightening smiles, orthodontic care is the go-to method of treatment. Orthodontic care often involves a variety of different oral appliances as well as braces that can help to guide teeth into a healthier and straighter formation over a period of time. When most people think of braces however, they think of traditional metal braces, but there are other options out there, including Invisalign orthodontics - and our Arden Arcade orthodontist
, Upen J Patel, DDS, may be able to provide it for you.
Depending on your dental health and the formation of your natural smile, you may be eligible for different kinds of braces, but Invisalign may be one of them. Invisalign orthodontics use clear plastic trays instead of metal brackets and wires to realign smiles and straighten teeth. These plastic trays are virtually invisible when they are worn, and they are specifically molded to fit your teeth as well. Our Arden Arcade orthodontist
, Upen J Patel, DDS will make sure that you are fitted every two weeks or so to provide you with a new set of aligner trays that will further facilitate your treatment by slowly guiding your teeth into place. Invisible braces also have a number of other benefits, such as easy maintenance and comfort. You can easily remove your plastic trays at meal times to avoid getting food caught in your braces, and you can also remove them when you brush your teeth so that you don't have to adjust your oral hygiene regimen.
But not everyone is eligible for invisible braces however, so you will need to undergo a comprehensive dental evaluation beforehand in order to determine whether you are a candidate for Invisalign orthodontics. If you're interested in getting braces, especially invisible ones, our Arden Arcade orthodontist
can provide you with the care you need, so call us and book an appointment with Upen J Patel, DDS today.
