Orthodontics Treatment San Jose: Invisalign and Bracket Braces

Best Orthodontic treatment in San Jose for a straight, healthy, and beautiful smile

Orthodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry that treats the patients with improper positioning of teeth when the mouth is closed (malocclusion), which results in an improper bite. It also includes cosmetic dentistry in which patient's aim is to improve his/her appearance.

How do I know if I need Orthodontics?

Orthodontic treatment can correct the following dental problems:

  • Overbite or buck teeth: Too far forward or sticking out of upper teeth over the lower teeth
  • Underbite: Too far forward of the lower teeth or too far backward of the upper teeth
  • Crossbite: Inability of the upper teeth to come down slightly in front of the lower teeth during biting
  • Open bite: Extra space between the biting surfaces of the front and/or side teeth
  • Misplaced midline: Center of upper front teeth does not line up with the center of lower front teeth
  • Spacing: Gap or space between the teeth due to missing teeth
  • Crowding: Too many teeth for the dental ridge to accommodate

What will Orthodontic treatment do in these problems?

Dr. Rong will evaluate the severity of your dental problem to find out the most effective and suitable orthodontic treatment for you. Orthodontic treatment is basically done by using any of the following fixed or removable appliances to move teeth, retrain muscles and affect the growth of the jaws:

Fixed appliances include:

  • Bracket Braces: These are bonded to the front of the tooth to put tension on the teeth and gradually move them to their proper position. They need monthly adjustments to bring about the desired results.
  • Fixed space maintainers: It is used to keep the space open of a prematurely lost tooth until the permanent tooth erupts.
  • Invisalign: Invisalign are virtually invisible aligners that are used to align the misaligned tooth without any metal wires and brackets. They can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing.
  • Removable space maintainers: They work same as fixed space maintainers but are removable.

Dr. Rong may also use various other orthodontic appliances like head gears depending upon the patient requirement.
