Orthodontic Options to Achieve Straighter, Healthier Teeth
You’re in good company if you weren’t born with a perfect smile. Few people fit that category. You can, however, improve your smile with orthodontic treatment. Orthodontics can straighten crooked teeth, correct overcrowding and bite issues, close gaps between teeth, and much more. At the office of Claire Cho DDS, we offer orthodontic services to residents of Aliso Viejo, California, and surrounding communities.
Orthodontic Options for Teeth Straightening
Like most people, you may be unfamiliar with orthodontic treatments, how they work, and the benefits they can provide. Dr. Cho has ample experience with orthodontics and can guide you in making wise decisions concerning the orthodontic services you need. The following are some modern orthodontic options that can help meet your smile needs:
- Six Months Smiles – Orthodontic issues with your front teeth can be quickly resolved with Six Months Smiles treatment. Six Months Smiles offers two choices for straightening teeth: clear aligners and clear braces, both of which are quick, easy, and discreet. Because you’re only straightening your front teeth, it’s less expensive than other comprehensive orthodontic treatments
- Invisalign – Like traditional braces, Invisalign can correct an array of orthodontic issues to give you a straighter, healthier smile. In place of metal brackets and wires, however, Invisalign uses custom-fitted, clear, plastic aligners to straighten your teeth. When worn, these aligners gently shift teeth into alignment. The aligners are comfortable to wear, discreet, and removable, making eating and oral hygiene convenient
- Traditional braces – Your Aliso Viejo dentist may recommend traditional metal braces for severe orthodontic issues. Traditional braces can produce excellent results when it comes to correcting severely crooked, misaligned, or protruding teeth, closing large spaces between teeth, and dealing with overcrowding
Oral Health Benefits of Straightening Teeth
Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean, which can help prevent decay, gum infections, and other dental issues. Straightening your teeth can improve tooth function, reduce wear and tear on your teeth and prevent TMJ problems.
