From the highly aesthetic to the highly affordable and everything in between, Choice Dental in Temecula is orthodontics at its best.
Wouldn't it be amazing if you could receive excellent orthodontic treatment without having to avoid certain foods or to adopt painstakingly complex hygiene practices? At Choice Dental in Temecula, we're proud to offer Invisalign®, the invisible orthodontic alternative. Invisalign® uses a sequence of custom-built plastic aligners that slide over the teeth, gradually straightening them over time. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® trays can be temporarily removed, allowing the wearer to continue normal dental hygiene routines and eat foods without reservation. Find out more about Invisalign® by contacting our practice in Temecula.
Metal Lingual braces, similar to Invisalign®, are a way of wearing braces without looking as if you're wearing braces. The word, "lingual" refers to the side of the teeth nearest the tongue. As such, lingual braces are mounted to the backs of the teeth and are invisible from your smile. Because lingual braces must be shaped to fit the unique contours of the backside of the teeth, they require a fair degree of customization. Lingual braces are a popular choice for individuals who are highly conscientious about their smile’s aesthetics, or who rely on their appearance in a professional capacity, as is the case with newscasters, actors, models etc.
Why bother with metal when you don't have to? Patients appreciate the clear bracket braces, made of composite materials or porcelain. Many of these composites are 100% translucent. People see that you're wearing braces, but, unlike with the metallic route, the clear bracket option offers a more stylish, delicate look.
Phase I and II Expanders
When judiciously employed, the use of expanders in the orthodontic practice will bring about fast, effective results, particularly with younger children. As a treatment method, expanders split up the orthodontic process across two major phases in coordination with the natural growth of the child's palette. The use of expanders is a great way to resolve orthodontic issues earlier in the child's life, so that they can enjoy a more metal-free adolescence. Let us know if you're interested in this course of treatment, and we'll be happy to walk you through the process.
