Have you noticed that your teeth are misaligned? Has your dentist recommended braces in order to correct dental problems you may have? Our Lake Forest dental office provides orthodontic dental care to all patients. Our dentists are highly experienced and qualified, so your smile will look beautiful once treatment has been completed. Lake Forest Dental Choice professionals offer two kinds of orthodontic treatment for misalignment: traditional braces and Invisalign.
Traditional braces are a highly effective form of treatment for several kinds of dental problems. They prevent teeth from being overcrowded and are the less expensive option when compared to Invisalign braces. With traditional braces, our dental professional will move the teeth in small increments, slowly moving them into the proper place.
While the wires and brackets on traditional braces are noticeable, you can choose fun colors to add personality and style to traditional braces. You also won’t have to worry about misplacing your aligners or forgetting to wear them, which can extend your treatment time with clear aligners.
Invisalign is an alternative to traditional braces. For patients that prefer less noticeable orthodontic treatment, these clear aligners allow you to straighten teeth without brackets and wires that may get in the way while brushing and flossing. Your dentist will take a 3D scan of your teeth, and this information will be used to craft a set of aligners customized to transform your smile.
One of the reasons patients like this option is due to convenience. They are clear, so most people may not notice you are wearing aligners. You do not have to give up any of your favorite foods during treatment – simply remove the aligners while eating and drinking anything other than water. There is an indicator on each aligner that wears down to show the aligner is being worn as it should be – keeping you on track during treatment.
