At Banning Dental Group, we are delighted to offer our patients orthodontic specialists, who can treat you with a full range of modern and discreet orthodontic treatment systems for the correction of misalignment issues with the teeth and jaw. Using orthodontic techniques, we can treat crooked or protruding teeth, gaps in between the teeth, or an incorrect bite. We offer this service to adults and children because many orthodontic problems develop during the yearly years and can be prevented by small treatment to save much more comprehensive dental corrections later in life.
No. We appreciate that traditional braces can make patients undergoing orthodontic treatment feel self-conscious, especially during adulthood. That is why we only offer modern, discreet alternatives to metal braces, including:
When you attend your initial consultation, you and your specialist will discuss your needs and goals, as well as the range of options available to you. The dentist will also conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and jaw, including a detailed 3D intraoral scan using our advanced Digital Smile Design technology.
With this modern medical imaging technique, we can accurately plan your treatment and you see how your teeth look when it’s finished.
We will send the data from your scans to the laboratory to fabricate your bespoke appliance.
Once your system is ready, your dentist will fit it for you and, in the case of Invisalign®, explain how to use it at home. You will attend regular progress appointments throughout your treatment.
Orthodontic treatment times can vary significantly from case to case. The length of time it will take to complete your treatment will depend primarily on the condition of your teeth and jaw and the results you are seeking.
All patients who complete orthodontic treatment must wear a retainer afterward to prevent the connective tissues in the mouth from pulling their newly straightened teeth back into their original, misaligned position.
Fixed or removable retainers are available and your orthodontic specialist will advise you of the various alternatives.
Wearing braces can cause brief periods of slight discomfort after you first start wearing them or following any adjustments. Those who choose Invisalign® may feel some minor discomfort shortly after switching to a new aligner.
