Traditional orthodontia has done a great deal of good for countless dental patients but, ask any teenager, having highly visible metal braces on your teeth is a heavy social price to pay at any time of life. It’s no surprise then that many orthodontic patients of Pasha Hakimzadeh, DDS and Ben Reyhani, DDS of West Hills Smiles are opting for invisible braces. These are braces that go under a number of brands, with Clear Correct being one of the best known and most respected names.
These invisible braces are clear, custom-made removable aligners that fit over the teeth and gently straighten them over time. The advantages of these kind of clear braces are fairly obvious. They provide the teeth straightening benefits of traditional orthodontia without the constant minor embarrassment associated with having a visible corrective device on the patient’s teeth. Also, let’s be clear, straight teeth are more than a cosmetic matter. Over the long term, they are healthier, more effective, and generally less prone to a number of dental problems that can arise later in life.
At the same time, no two sets of teeth are exactly alike – and the same holds true for the people attached to them. Really, there’s only way to find if ClearCorrect or another type of invisible orthodontic device is appropriate for you or your children’s situation, and that is to come into West Hills Smiles for a free initial consultation.
