Orthodontic treatment specializes in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of jaw, face and bite irregularities. Orthodontics are often sought not only as a medical necessity, but for cosmetic reasons.
More and more adults who’ve lived with crooked or imperfect teeth reach a decision to straighten their smile. Naturally, the prospect of metal braces can be unappealing, but at Mission Hills Dental, we can provide Invisalign® for quick and successful teeth straightening.
This orthodontic treatment can fix the same bite problems as traditional metal braces, but virtually invisibly. The braces can also be removed by the patient when he or she desires.
The process involves the use of a series of custom-made aligning trays, changed by your dentist every few weeks in order to fit your new teeth structure. The capability of easy Invisalign® aligning trays for removal gives the patient control over his or her corrective decisions and allows more individualized care. Invisalign is an excellent solution for correcting overcrowding in the mouth, large tooth gaps, cross bite, and overbite, as well as underbite. The Invisalign process can also prevent jaw pain and TMJ, as well as bone erosion, gum disease, and tooth decay. Consulting an orthodontic specialist can result in healthier and more attractive teeth with minimal intrusion in your daily life.
