Orthodontic TreatmentsChildren will often need braces during the years before they reach adulthood. Teeth do not always come in properly, and crooked teeth not only look unattractive, but they can also hinder proper brushing and flossing. Misaligned teeth can be a source of embarrassment to children as they are growing up.
It is your responsibility as the parent to see that your child's teeth are corrected if they require straightening. Our dentist in Riverside will evaluate your child's condition and properly fit braces to his or her teeth. Over a two to three-year period, your child's teeth will be gradually corrected until they are in proper alignment. Brushing can be a challenge when braces are on the teeth, so our Riverside dentist will instruct your child as to proper brushing techniques in order to keep teeth clean and free of plaque. When adjustments are needed, they will be made to ensure that the braces are fitting properly and not causing any pain or discomfort. At the end of the treatment, the braces will be removed to reveal a set of perfect, straight teeth. Your child will thank you, if not immediately, then in later years, for having taken the time to have an embarrassing problem corrected.
When teeth are crooked and crowded, it is hard to maintain their hygiene. Our cosmetic dentist in Riverside can fix these problems and prevent further complications.
You also deserve to have straight teeth. If you have alignment problems with your own teeth, it is not too late to have the situation fixed. Our cosmetic dentist in Riverside can fit you with a different type of correction device that will effectively straighten your teeth without the need for metal wires and brackets. Invisalign aligners are the way for adults and teenagers to acquire straight teeth. Each plastic aligner, changed every two weeks, is crafted in such a way as to gradually reposition the teeth. Invisalign aligners are clear plastic and will not show when being worn. You will not have any embarrassment over metal braces, and they can be removed to eat and brush.
Orthodontic treatments can do wonders in correcting alignment problems in both children and adults. Our Riverside cosmetic dentist has the perfect appliance for every type of correction situation.
