Dental Braces and Invisalign Treatment in Lake Forest
Smile alignment treatment is an area of dentistry that focuses on diagnosing, treating, and preventing jaw and bite complications. Many patients wish to correct dental misalignment as well as achieve the dental aesthetics they can be proud of.
At Dental Magic OC, our leading dentist, Dr. Sandra Rodriguez, and her team believe every patient should experience the healthy and visually appealing smile they deserve. We proudly offer conventional metal braces and Invisalign® Clear Braces for patients looking to improve overall dental well-being.
Designing Treatments with Your Smile’s Needs in Mind
At our Lake Forest practice, Dr. Rodriguez offers several alignment options designed with our patients’ comfort and lifestyles in mind. During your comprehensive consultation, our dentist will discuss with you your specific goals and determine how our custom-crafted treatment plans can benefit your unique smile. Once proper communication and trust in your care are established, we can recommend an appropriate method of treatment.
In addition to improving aesthetics, a properly-aligned smile also promotes the health of the teeth and jaw. Benefits include but are not limited to:
- Improved Speech
- Easier Access to Proper Teeth Cleaning
- Headache or Muscle Pain Relief Associated with Poor Bite
- Enhancing Dental & Facial Aesthetics
Traditional Metal Braces
Conventional braces are the appliances that most individuals think of when considering alignment treatment. This method consists of securing small metal brackets that are threaded with a wire onto each tooth. Metal braces are still a highly viable solution for the majority of malocclusion cases and tend to be the most reliable method of treatment.
During your alignment process, Dr. Rodriguez and her team track your progress and perform adjustments when necessary to help ensure proper tooth positioning. This form of treatment is typically ideal for younger patients as their jaw structure is still developing and tend to have more complex malocclusion complications.
Invisalign is a slightly more flexible treatment option favored by many adult patients. After taking impressions of your current dental state, a series of clear, plastic aligner trays are custom-crafted to match your smile. Over the length of treatment, a patient wears a set of trays for a given period of time determined by Dr. Rodriguez. Routine checkups help our team verify that teeth have moved sufficiently before the next series of aligners are provided. This process continues until treatment is completed.
Many patients prefer Invisalign’s system of clear aligners because of its discreet nature. Even though there are a wide variety of benefits to Invisalign; it is essential to wear the clear trays for at least 22 hours a day, removing them only before meals and at-home oral hygiene routines.
