Santa Paula Braces
Traditional braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. The components work together to apply gentle pressure, which through regular adjustments with our doctors, will gradually move the teeth into their desired positions. The components are metal or ceramic brackets attached to the teeth and connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics.
Santa Paula braces are an excellent choice for correcting a number of simple and complex tooth issues. Santa Paula braces are also a cost-effective option for patients on a budget. 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.
Santa Paula Invisalign
The Santa Paula 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 to keep teeth moving in the right direction! 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. Aligners must be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment in order for them to do their job.
A free consultation with Santa Paula Orthodontics will be able to help determine your eligibility for Invisalign. Invisalign is most effective when used to correct many common orthodontic problems. For complex cases, Invisalign may not be a good option.
