Problems We Can Correct Using Clear Braces in Anaheim

Clear BracesAs a provider of clear braces in Anaheim, we regularly answer questions by patients on what types of problems we can correct.  Many people are under the misconception that since they are clear, they cannot accomplish as much as bulky braces.  While it is true that certain bite issues will respond best to a traditional treatment, most aesthetic and placement issues can be corrected using clear braces.  To find out if you qualify for this treatment and if it will accomplish your smile goals, call to schedule a consultation and examination.  We will conduct a physical exam, see how your bite comes together and take X-rays.  We will then discuss what you are trying to accomplish, your lifestyle and any concerns that you may have.  This will allow us to create a customized treatment plan for your needs.  More often than not, clear braces will provide the results that you are looking for.

We use clear braces to do the following:

Close the gaps between teeth.  You do not need to live with unsightly gaps between your teeth when clear braces will do the trick to close them.  Many people feel self-conscious about the gaps between their teeth but feel insecure about braces. You do not need to have this concern when treating your teeth using clear braces.  Clear braces are incredibly discreet and can move teeth into proper alignment without anyone noticing.

Address overcrowding.  If you have overcrowding issues, we can help. We will typically combine clear braces with a secondary solution like wearing an expander or spacers.  In rare cases, we may need to pull one or two teeth in order to make enough room for the other teeth.

Straighten teeth.  Clear braces can move the position of your teeth so that they become perfectly straight.  This is done by applying pressure to your teeth in specific spots.  As they gradually move into position, your smile will start to look better through the clear braces.

Correct bite issues.  When straightening teeth we must consider how your bite comes together in addition to the location of your teeth. We can correct any bite issues that you have using aligners as long as the position of your teeth causes the bite problem. For example, if your lower teeth are pushed outwards at an angle, then straightening them will also improve your bite.  If, however, your jawbone is in the wrong position and needs to be adjusted, you may require oral surgery as part of your orthodontic treatment. Surgery may be necessary, regardless of whether you are wearing clear braces or traditional ones.

There are very few orthodontic issues that cannot be solved using clear braces.  We can efficiently move your teeth into the correct position and help you to love your smile.  To learn more about clear braces in Anaheim or to begin your treatment process, call and schedule a consultation with our dental office.
