All You Need to Know if You are Considering Aligners!
With all the technological advances in orthodontics, nowadays people have become more aware of the importance of an outstanding oral health. It is not only a matter of aesthetics but of an overall health. Just like there are regular diseases, such as diabetes or cardiovascular, which are sometimes originated by poor nutrition habits that might also develop into oral complications, there is also the opposite case: some health conditions that are derived from oral complications, such as pain and discomfort in the jaw line and head, that result from malocclusion.
When teeth are crooked or misaligned, it will irremediably affect the eating and talking manners of a person. In the aesthetical side this will affect the smile and with it the self esteem and social development of a person. This is why Dr. Martirosyan, our professional dentist in Burbank adj, offers several options to improve you overall smile!
Teeth that are not straight or that are out of place are more difficult to clean, thus they are more likely to be prone to cavities or bacteria. Hence, an adequate orthodontic treatment is important for the correction of this condition. Braces and retainers are essential for this treatment. At Pacific Dental Care we offer invisible aligners to avoid the discomfort of regular braces and be able to smile without any embarrassment.
How does a regular Orthodontic Treatment work?
The purpose and method of an Orthodontic treatment lies on exerting a gentle pressure over a determined period of time to straighten teeth that are growing or those which have grown misaligned. The period of time necessary for the treatment is not the same for all patients; it depends on the speed on response of the dental structure to correct. An average treatment is estimated between one and two years and the
results are outstanding. Technology has made such advances in this area that there are today virtually invisible braces for the comfort of those who want to correct their condition without making of it a public issue, such as Invisalign treatment offered by our professional Dentist in Burbank, Adj.
Braces have three basic parts:
1) Brackets – brackets that are attached to each tooth
2) Bonding or band – the material that attaches the bracket to the tooth
3) Arch Wire – a thin metal wire that runs from bracket to bracket
After braces have been removed it is necessary to help teeth to avoid adopting again their former position. Retainers will keep them straight. Retainers are custom-made removable devices that can also be used to treat other minor orthodontic problems.
- Invisalign – Invisible Aligners
Invisalign is a painless and invisible solution to straightening your teeth or closing gaps allowing our dentist to gradually move your teeth through a series of custom made, removable, nearly invisible aligners. You can smile with confidence during your treatment and no one will notice your dental aligners unless you tell them. Unlike braces, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your
teeth as usual!
