Posted on: July 2, 2014
If you have crooked teeth, an orthodontist can transform your smile into one that is perfectly straight and beautiful. There are a variety of reasons that people need to have their teeth corrected using braces that include having an overbite, underbite, crowded teeth, a misaligned jaw, or teeth that are simply crooked. Whatever the reason, Dr. Garcia can help to transform your smile into the one you have always wanted.In order to determine the best way to straighten your teeth, it is important to schedule a consultation with Dr. Garcia. Modern dentistry has improved to the point that there are multiple ways to correct your smile. Traditional metal braces are still effective, yet they are no longer the only choice that the patient has. This type of braces works the best for patients that have issues with their jaw or major problems with their bite. In this scenario, a dental professional has to move more than your teeth, and braces are a great way to do so because rubber bands can be used to move the jaw.If you only need to straighten your teeth, Invisalign may be the best option. As an orthodontist, Dr. Garcia can use Invisalign to move your teeth into place without anyone noticing that you are having dental work done. The best part about Invisalign is that it is invisible. A clear device called an aligner is used to move teeth and every couple of weeks it is replaced with a new one. This is in essence a retainer system that slowly moves teeth where they need to go without the use of traditional braces. This is an ideal option for busy adults that don’t have time to get their braces adjusted on a regular basis.Those that want immediate results may be able to get them with cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Garcia can place a dental veneer over a tooth to give it a straighter appearance. This works well when only a few teeth need to be moved. Additionally, he provides dental implants for patients that want a perfect and straight smile that will stay in place no matter what. The choices are unlimited when working with someone like Dr. Garcia that can provide both cosmetic dentistry services and orthodontics.As an orthodontist, he will look for the most effective way to straighten your teeth, improve your bite, and transform your smile. During your first consultation, he will discuss these options with you so that you can make an informed decision as to how to proceed. It is important to pick the procedure that will fit with your lifestyle as wearing braces is a typically a two-year commitment.Regardless of how old you are, a teenager or senior citizen, it is a good time to have your teeth straightened and any damage corrected. Straightening your teeth will improve your appearance and keep your mouth healthier by preventing bacteria from becoming trapped in strange places. Dr. Garcia welcomes new patients and will be happy to discuss your smiles goals with you.
