Facts To Help You Stop Avoiding Braces

Have you been wondering about braces, whether it’s for your own smile, or because you are concerned about a child or loved one? If you have been asking friends or scouring the internet, trying to determine if braces are necessary, or if they can do the job, we have a suggestion. Attend a complimentary orthodontic consultation in Temecula, CA and allow us to examine your teeth and oral structures, and help you explore the options.  We will bring up any orthodontic concerns we see and work with you to help you find the best solution.

Fact #1: Braces Can Be Discreet

Depending on the orthodontic issues with your smile, you may be a candidate for clear braces. These  are similar to traditional metal braces, in that they can safely move your teeth from their current positions, into more aligned, functional and attractive positions over a period of time. However, instead of metal brackets and wires, clear braces use ceramic brackets and tooth-color arch wires, that blend in more naturally with a smile.

Fact #2: Orthodontic Treatments Can Make Big Changes, or Smaller Ones

Traditional braces, gold braces and clear braces can all correct tooth alignments, even where severe malocclusion and tooth spacing is present. These options are often the first recommendation for younger patients, who may not be able to keep up with individual trays or follow precise wearing schedules. Patients who are more mature may be good candidates for Invisalign clear trays. These custom-fitted trays are almost invisible when in place, and can be removed for eating and brushing. Patients with minimal alignment issues may be candidates for the MTM aligners, which can correct misalignment in as little as 3-6 months.

Fact #3: Braces Don’t Have To Break the Bank

Finances are a valid concern for every patient. Our trained staff can discuss payment options, and we will help you file insurance claims, as needed. Considering that children smile hundreds of times a day, many people find their investment in a functional and attractive smile is put to use on a daily basis, whether it is for themselves or a loved one.

Fact #4: Braces Might Not Be The Best Answer

When we see you in consultation, we can make sure you need an orthodontic solution. It’s possible that misaligned TMJs (your temporomandibular joints) can be causing issues, or that a wisdom tooth needs extraction, if it is pushing other teeth out of place.
