Whatever the issue, the result is a new, more even smile that you will want everyone to see.
LEARN ABOUT your Teeth-Straightening Options
Are you ready for a First-Class Smile?
We offer both traditional orthodontic braces and Invisalign clear aligners for families interested in the modern orthodontic care in the San Francisco area. For more severe cases, traditional braces may be the best solution to reposition teeth as the results are predictable and time-tested. Invisalign is a great option for teens and adults, and delivers the ultimate in discretion when it comes to wearing braces. Our team creates a series of custom-made clear aligner trays, which are worn for around 22 hours each day. These comfortable orthodontic trays are changed out every two weeks for a new set, until the desired end results are reached. Invisalign aligners are easily removed for eating, and when brushing and flossing. This option is ideal for working professionals, teens and adults who wish to keep their orthodontic treatment under the radar.
When should you consider Invisalign Clear Aligners?
Here are some of the straightening issues that can be treated with Invisalign:
Overcrowded teeth occur when there is a lack of room within your jaw for all of your teeth to fit normally.
Widely spaced teeth occur when you have extra space within your jaw.
Crossbites occur when the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned. It usually causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth and can happen on both the front and/or the sides of the mouth.
Deep bites occur when the upper teeth overlap significantly with the lower teeth.
Underbites occur when the lower teeth protrude past the front teeth, usually caused by undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or both.
