Orthodontists are dental specialists who deal with the diagnosis, prevention, and correction of mispositioned teeth and jaws. They work closely with patients to correct malocclusions (improper bites), which may be a result of thumb sucking, genetic predisposition, or trauma. they work with children, adolescents, and adults.
Our orthodontists can help you with all types of braces, including metal braces and clear ceramic braces. We also provide Invisalign, a clear aligner that works to straighten your teeth without the need for traditional metal braces.
If you’re interested in learning more about orthodontics and whether it’s the right choice for you or your child, we invite you to make an appointment at our office in Jeddah. Our staff is happy to answer any questions you may have about cosmetic braces and orthodontic treatment at our dental clinic.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a modern alternative to braces. It works using a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually move your teeth into position. Invisalign uses the latest advances in 3D computer graphics technology to create custom-fitted aligners, especially for you.
How does it work?
Invisalign uses advanced 3D computer-imaging technology to predict the exact movements of your teeth. This allows us to map out the precise series of movements your teeth will undergo during this procedure, right from the start.
Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment process, moving your teeth little by little, week by week until you reach your perfect smile. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even notice the straightening process.
Invisalign vs Braces: Which one’s better?
Both Invisalign and braces work equally well at straightening teeth. There are some differences between them though:
Invisalign is nearly invisible, making it a great option for adults concerned with aesthetics.
Braces on the other hand aren’t as discreet and can be quite conspicuous.
If you are missing one or more teeth, a dental implant may be the best solution to restore your smile. We can replace one or more of your teeth with implants.
A dental implant is a small cylinder, usually made of titanium, which is placed into the jawbone where a tooth is missing. Over time the bone heals around the implant and it becomes firmly fixed in place. A false tooth, called a crown, can then be attached to the top of the implant.
Unlike a fixed bridge or removable dentures, this option provides a permanent solution that looks and feels like your natural teeth.
Dental implants can be used to replace anywhere from one to an entire arch of missing teeth, helping to restore a sense of confidence in your smile.
For those who want to get their teeth straightened but are concerned about having to wear unattractive and uncomfortable braces, cosmetic braces offer a more aesthetically pleasing approach.
“What are Cosmetic Braces?” is a question we hear more and more as our patients seek to enhance their appearance through orthodontic treatment. While many of our patients are looking into orthodontics to correct an underbite or overbite, a growing number are interested in cosmetic braces to improve their overall look.
Cosmetic braces allow you to straighten your teeth without the use of traditional, noticeable metal brackets and wires. Invisalign and Fastbraces are two of the most popular options for cosmetic braces.
