Orthodontist in Rancho Cucamonga
At Sweet Tooth, we are pleased to provide orthodontic aligners as a safe, effective, and discreet option for straightening misaligned teeth. You or your child may be able to achieve a healthy, beautiful smile using this non-invasive, aesthetic straightening option.
Traditional orthodontic treatments often include braces, with unattractive metal brackets and bulky silver wires. However, removable aligners are worn over the teeth and can be removed to allow you or your child to eat, brush, and floss normally during the orthodontic treatment. Aligners are a comfortable, convenient, and easy to use solution for straightening you or your child’s teeth.
Orthodontic aligners provide other health benefits in addition to straightening teeth. Teeth that are crowded, gapped, or misaligned are more difficult to keep properly cleaned and flossed. Over time, this can lead to a higher rate of tooth decay. Crowded and misaligned teeth are also more prone to issues like cracking and wear, due to improper occlusion (bite).
Straightening you or your child’s teeth with orthodontic aligners can protect against these issues. Additionally, misaligned teeth are more likely to develop periodontal (gum) issues. Orthodontic treatment can help keep gums firm around the teeth, protecting against bacterial infections that can lead to periodontal disease.
By choosing orthodontic aligners to straighten you or your child’s teeth, you can avoid many of the issues commonly associated with traditional braces. Our patients who choose orthodontic aligner treatment are much less prone to experiencing pain, discomfort, or mouth sores than those with traditional metal braces. Additionally, the ability to remove you or your child’s aligners to allow proper brushing and flossing, can lead to a reduced rate of plaque buildup and tooth decay.
At Sweet Tooth, we can help you and your child achieve straight teeth and a beautiful, healthy smile with orthodontic aligners. For more information or to schedule a consultation, contact our office.
