Get the straight smile you covet with orthodontic care from Fair Oaks Family Dental. Our board-certified orthodontist will devise an individualized treatment plan to align your teeth gently and efficiently.
We can treat long-standing malocclusion as well as orthodontic regression. Malocclusion is the medical term for crooked teeth, and these teeth are more difficult to take care of. If you can’t reach places with normal brushing and flossing, then you are at a higher risk of decay and infection.
Some people who’ve had orthodontic work in the past will experience what is known as orthodontic regression, where previously straightened teeth will shift out of proper alignment. We can help! Our Pasadena dental team is equipped to correct any variation of crooked teeth, including regression and advanced malocclusion.
Individualized Orthodontic Treatment Plans
Before any orthodontic treatment, your bite will be professionally evaluated by our board-certified orthodontist. We use advanced diagnostic methods, such as digital x-rays, to determine the best course of action. Our specialists take the time to consider your oral health and your personal preferences when planning your treatment.
Metal braces are the best option for patients with moderate to severe malocclusion. Braces are heavy-duty aligners, capable of correcting even the most serious jaw misalignment. For example, patients with pronounced underbites or overbites will get better and faster results from traditional metal braces.
After the planning stage, our specialist securely adheres brackets to the surfaces of your teeth and wires connecting the brackets. Over time, we manipulate the tension of the wire between these brackets to shift your teeth into proper alignment.
Invisalign® Clear Aligners
If your smile suffers from mild to moderate crookedness, Invisalign offers a fast, discreet, and comfortable solution. These clear trays are comfortable, effective, and nearly invisible. Every few weeks you will receive a new set of trays designed to push your teeth into alignment gently.
Adult patients generally prefer this orthodontic option. You must be willing to commit to the treatment plan for it to be effective. This means a diligent routine of wearing the retainers for a minimum of 23 hours each day.
