Braces in Oxnard
Traditional braces are time tested as the most efficient orthodontic tools available. The metal or ceramic brackets are attached to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. Through regular adjustments with our doctors, these parts will work on moving your teeth into the desired position as they work together, applying gentle pressure to your teeth.
If you need to correct a variety of simple or complex tooth issues, braces in Oxnard are an excellent choice. Because they sometimes work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other options might, overall treatment time can be slightly reduced. In addition, braces don’t need some of the expensive equipment or more complicated technology that newer treatments can. Therefore, braces in Oxnard a cost-effective orthodontic option for patients on a budget.
Invisalign in Oxnard
The Invisalign system in Oxnard uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move the teeth into alignment, instead of brackets and bands. Invisalign is currently the top alternative to traditional braces and is an incredibly popular choice with both patients and orthodontists.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and designed to fit snugly over your teeth. The trays are virtually invisible and you’ll switch them out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series. This keeps the teeth moving in the right direction! For aligners to do their job, they must be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. Patients who neglect to wear the aligners as directed can have a negative impact on the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
When used to correct many of the most common orthodontic issues, Invisalign is most effective.
