Your Options for Misaligned Teeth Solutions in Aliso Viejo, California
Dr. Cho‘s practice offers three options for treating misaligned teeth.
- Six Month Smiles
- Traditional metal braces
Six Month Smiles
If you want a quick solution, Dr. Cho’s Six Month’s Smiles treatment may be ideal for straightening your front teeth. This treatment uses traditional metal bracket-and-wire braces that are the same color as your teeth, making them somewhat discreet. The invisible teeth braces gently move your front teeth into the correct position in as little as six months.
Invisalign may be an excellent option for some patients to straighten their teeth without metal braces. Invisalign are clear aligners that gradually shift your teeth into a healthy and straight position. Invisalign clear aligners are custom-designed for your mouth and switched out every two weeks as the teeth begin to move.
The entire Invisalign process takes about 12 months. One benefit of Invisalign is that you can remove them to floss and brush your teeth thoroughly.
Traditional metal braces are one of the most affordable options for straightening misaligned teeth and one of the most versatile options. Metal braces can be used for significant gaps, misalignment, crowding, and even bite problems.
Straightening teeth with traditional metal braces takes anywhere from 12 to 30 months.
