Your Oxnard orthodontist
After earning his undergraduate degree at BYU in Exercise Science with a double major in Anthropology, Dr. Jared Lee received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from UCLA.
Dr. Lee spent three years as a postdoctoral clinical fellow at Columbia University in New York City where he received a Master’s degree in Orthodontics. He served as the postdoctoral representative of the College’s ethics committee.
Traditional braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. The metal or ceramic brackets are attached to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics.
These components work together to apply gentle pressure, which through regular adjustments with our doctors, will gradually move the teeth into the desired positions.
Oxnard braces are an excellent choice for correcting a number of simple and complex tooth issues. Overall treatment time can be slightly reduced because traditional braces sometimes work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth that other options might. Traditional braces also don’t require some of the more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can. This makes Oxnard braces a cost-effective orthodontic option for patients on a budget.
The Oxnard Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move the teeth into alignment, rather than brackets and bands. This option is currently the top alternative to traditional braces and is incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material that fits snugly over the patient’s teeth. The trays are virtually invisible and are usually switched out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series. This keeps the teeth moving in the right direction! Aligners must be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment in order for them to do their job. Patients who neglect to wear the aligners as directed might not see the results they want and can also add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is most effective when used to correct many common orthodontic problems.
For certain complex cases, Invisalign may not be a successful option. A free consultation with Oxnard Orthodontics will be able to help determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
