Enjoy teeth straightening with clear braces

If you are considering ways of straightening your teeth but are uneasy about moving forward with traditional metal braces to do so, you are in luck! Drs. Mircea Mitu and George D’Louhy of Family Dental Center in Manteca, California, provide alternative solutions such as clear teeth aligners.

What is clear aligner therapy?

With invisible plastic clear aligners, patients can reposition the teeth within the bite for the most noticeable changes in the smile. At the same time, the trays fit snug over the teeth and are hard to see. That allows patients to share their smiles with others without feeling self-conscious about the appearance of orthodontic appliances. Most patients with mild to moderate misalignment may benefit from clear aligner therapy options.

What teeth straightening option is the most popular?

At Family Dental Center, we work with patients of all ages and have many adults approach us asking about alternatives to traditional metal braces. With clear teeth aligners, patients can use customized trays that are discreet and worn over the dental arch to reposition the teeth. This method of using clear teeth aligners has become popular with teenagers and adults who have mild to moderate misalignment.

What other type of orthodontic work is available at Family Dental Center?

In addition to invisible aligners, our team also provides:

  • Clear braces. Clear braces use tooth-colored appliances to help reposition the teeth within the dental arch for a straighter smile and bite. These braces are less noticeable than traditional metal bracket-and-wire braces and allow patients to feel confident from start to finish.
  • Traditional braces. Patients with more severe misalignment and malocclusion may be betters suited for conventional braces. Metal brackets are glued to the teeth and attached to guide wires adjusted as needed to move the teeth into proper alignment over several months.
