What Are The Options?

Traditional braces are one of the most effective forms of orthodontic correction. By making small adjustments to the brackets and wires, Dr. Collado of Carmel Mountain Ranch Dental Care can adjust your teeth and shift them into healthy alignment.

Another corrective option is Invisalign. This system shifts the teeth using a series of clear plastic aligners designed specifically for the patient. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks, slowly shifting the teeth into their corrected position. The process is simple, and only requires quick check-ups with Dr. Collado or Dr. Carpenter to ensure progress.

What Issues Can Braces Treat?

Traditional braces as well as Invisalign can treat a wide variety of orthodontic issues:

  • Bite problems – Overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites can usually be treated with traditional braces. By shifting the position of the teeth and retraining the muscles of the jaw, orthodontic braces are used to solve most bite problems.
  • Crooked and crowded teeth – Using gentle pressure, teeth can be shifted to sit in a more appealing and comfortable position.
  • Gaps and spaces – Whether your canines need to come down, or you have a classic gap between your two front teeth, braces help fill the spaces by aligning the teeth to their proper positions.
