Orthodontics in Escondido
Orthodontics represents a dentistry specialty that deals with correcting the alignment of your teeth and jaw.
The advantages of orthodontic treatments include having an overall healthier mouth, a straighter, better-looking smile, and more durable natural teeth which can be kept for a lifetime.
Why should you see an Orthodontist?
An orthodontist is a dentist with supplementary post-graduate training in Orthodontics. They deal with more complicated orthodontic procedures outside of general dentistry.
The most popular orthodontic treatment are fixed braces, which are kept continuously in the patient’s mouth until the teeth are aligned correctly.
Patients who do not like the look of traditional braces have the option of wearing lingual braces, which are applied behind the teeth, being invisible.
Most patients will have to utilize retainers after their braces have been removed. The retainers are extremely important to prevent the teeth from coming back to their previous alignment.
Our dentist will make sure to offer you several options, as well as thorough instructions.
Diagnostic tools are comprised of a thorough dental and medical history, a clinical examination, plaster models of the teeth and special photographs and X-rays.
For a thorough examination to ascertain whether you need an orthodontic treatment, you are welcome to contact our experienced orthodontist.
