Not everyone has a completely straight smile. While each and every smile is unique, some may need more dental work than others. Sometimes, uneven bites and crooked teeth may pose servers dental issues and may create future problems and risks, in which case orthodontic work may be necessary. Other times, people seek out orthodontic work to simply get straighter teeth and our Montebello orthodontist Baruch B Lifshitz, DDS can help. There are many different kinds of treatments available for people who want straighter teeth or need to improve their smile and sometimes Invisalign is the answer.
There are several different types of braces used when it comes to applying orthodontic treatments and other such dental procedures in order to correct bite problems or correct teeth. Traditional braces are what most people tend to think of when it comes to orthodontics, but it is by no means the only option available. There are several methods similar to this method but then there is Invisalign. Invisalign works similarly to traditional braces, only instead of using brackets and wires it utilizes aligner trays molded to fit over your teeth instead. These trays are made from a clear plastic that is virtually invisible when worn, making the braces themselves so incredibly subtle that other people may not even realize that you are wearing braces at all! Invisalign is often recommended for people who are older and more concerned with their appearance as well as in situations where the malocclusion or tooth alignment issue involved is not so severe. Like traditional metal braces, Invisalign uses physics to gently guide teeth into place but does not need these intricate devices in order to do so. With invisible braces, our Montebello orthodontist Baruch B Lifshitz, DDS will fit you for a new set of aligner trays about once every two weeks or so in order to help encourage the continual movement of your teeth.
If you are in need of a Montebello orthodontist then Baruch B Lifshitz, DDS can provide you with the help that you need. After a preliminary examination and a complete checkup, Dr. Lifshitz can determine what orthodontic method will work best for you. You may just find out that Invisalign is best for you.
