Taking care of your teeth today can have long lasting positive effects on your dental health in the future. Braces from South Bay Dentistry & Orthodontics help straighten your teeth through the use of lightweight metal and natural-colored materials. We offer traditional metal braces, ceramic braces, and Invisalign.
Why should I get braces for myself or my child?
Not correcting underbites, overbites, crossbites, or any type of crooked teeth can lead to a higher chance of bone loss and gum disease. Crooked teeth are also more difficult to clean both for yourself and for our staff at South Bay Dentistry & Orthodontics. Taking advantage of our orthodontic care can not only increase the longevity of your teeth, but also improve your overall confidence as well.
Remember -- choosing orthodontic treatment for yourself, for a child, or for a family member is not simply a cosmetic decision. It's a decision towards better health.
Metal braces -- not like the braces of yesteryear
You may shy away from traditional braces for a wide variety of reasons. Perhaps you get images in your head of outrageous headgear or painful adjustment appointments. Well, our South Bay orthodontists want you to know that modern braces don't have a clunky appearance and they certainly don't have to hurt to work.
Today, modern metal braces are made with smaller, more discreet brackets and wires. They require fewer adjustment appointments because they react to the heat and warm saliva in your mouth. That's good news if you're worried about discomfort, and it's even better news for patients looking for a straighter smile more quickly and conveniently.
Ceramic braces -- a terrific aesthetic option
Are you still uncertain about having metal in your mouth? Maybe you're a parent or busy professional, and metal braces just wouldn't be appropriate for you. Maybe you're not quite the right candidate for Invisalign. Whatever the reason, ceramic braces may be the right choice for you.
Also known as clear braces, ceramic braces are made of a light, natural ceramic material, fabricated right here at South Bay Dentistry and Orthodontics. They're designed to blend in with the natural color of your teeth. That way, people can't tell you're wearing braces! Ceramic braces are a great option for just about anyone in need of orthodontic care, from self-conscious teens all the way to top level executives.
In addition to braces, our South Bay Dentistry & Orthodontics team also offers Invisalign: the clear alternative. They are comfortable, customizable, and removable. For those special occasions, you’ll be infused with the confidence you need while ensuring your dental health.
