Orthodontic treatment is performed to correct different types of malocclusion, or poor bite. There are many possible conditions that cause a poor bite. When you come to our office, Dr. Nehi Ogbevoen can diagnose your bite and discuss your orthodontic options with you.
Traditional braces with visible metal brackets and wires are less popular with adults for cosmetic reasons. For some people, ceramic braces offer a little more visual appeal because they can be matched to the color of your existing teeth. Lingual braces are just like traditional braces except they are secured behind the teeth. The disadvantage of lingual braces is that they can sometimes be hard to clean.
For adults that require minor cosmetic adjustments, clear braces, such as Invisalign®
and ClearCorrect®, have been growing in popularity. These aligners are made from a clear, durable plastic, and are removable when eating or brushing teeth. In most cases, the casual observer can rarely even notice you have them in!
If you have alignment issues with your teeth, we invite you to call Beautiful New Smiles at 626-458-8898 to see how braces in Alhambra, California, can improve you smile. We are here to help you achieve and maintain your best smile yet!
