Not having a perfect smile is more than just a cosmetic issue. In many cases, it can be a medical one, too. People with uneven bites and teeth can often suffer from a wide range of symptoms and other dental concerns. To treat these issues and to straighten teeth, orthodontic care is needed. When it comes to Palmer Ranch orthodontics, Dr. Lisa Brewer is here at New Image Dentistry LLC to offer patients the personalized and attentive care they need and deserve.
Orthodontic care usually involves braces, but it can also refer to a wide range of other orthodontic tools and treatments that are used to realign teeth and create straighter smiles. Many people suffering from improperly positioned teeth suffer from side effects like headaches, neck and jaw pain, clicking or locking of jaws, and jaw strain because of uneven bites and crooked teeth. Evene severely crooked teeth can increase risk of tooth decay because they are more difficult to clean effectively. Depending on your specific needs, preferences, and budget, Dr. Brewer can determine the best course of Palmer Ranch orthodontics treatment for you. Aside from traditional metal braces, we here at New Image Dentistry LLC also offer Invisalign for patients who are eligible. Traditional metal braces are the most versatile, and is the preferred treatment method for more serious bite problems as well as more severely crooked teeth. For many other scenarios, though, Invisalign can work just as well to aesthetically improve the appearance of teeth and overall structure of a patient’s bite. Metal braces come equipped with brackets and wires that are affixed to the front part of the smile, and adjusted every so often to induce movement gradually over time. Invisalign uses clear aligner trays instead, a new set provided once every few weeks to produce similar effects as traditional braces.
