Murrieta, CA patients considering a straighter, more beautiful smile may not be sure if they are ready for orthodontic treatment. In order to address tooth misalignment and bite position, many patients will need to undergo some type of orthodontic treatment to achieve their desired results. At Springs Dental, Dr. Daniel Pulsipher can assist. His practice offers a variety of orthodontic treatments, allowing patients a choice in the manner in which they improve their smile alignment.

 

What is orthodontic treatment?

 

Orthodontic treatments are services used to reposition teeth within the smile. They align the teeth within the dental arch. Patients with turned, gapped, or misaligned teeth will find this to be the most reliable way to improve the smile over time. In the past, the only option was that of traditional metal bracket and wire braces, only achieved by visiting with an orthodontist in Murrieta, CA. Now, many dentists in and around the Murrieta, California area also offer orthodontic treatments, including those that are faster and less discreet. Our providers are pleased to offer several methods for patients who are interested in treating malocclusion.

 

What are methods of orthodontic treatment available to patients?

 

Patients who visit Springs Dental will be excited to find that Dr. Daniel Pulsipher offers several ways to achieve the desired results. Below are the types of orthodontics in Murrieta available at his practice for patients to choose from:

 

  • Traditional braces in Murrieta – traditional orthodontics still remain one of the most reliable ways to reposition the teeth. They are designed for patients with mild to severe malocclusion. The dentist will bond metal brackets onto the teeth that require movement and join them with a metal archwire. This wire is adjusted regularly to improve tension and move the teeth into a better position within the dental arch. Treatment can take months or years to complete, depending on the severity of the patient’s current condition.
  • Clear braces in Murrieta – another option is that of clear braces. Clear braces are braces that use brackets and wires, but these appliances are often tooth-colored. This ensures that the appliances are far less noticeable than traditional metal braces, allowing patients to feel more confident during their treatment process.
  • Aligner tray therapies – Invisalign in Murrieta and ClearCorrect are two types of aligner tray therapies available at Springs Dental. Both of these use clear plastic aligner trays that slide over the dental arch. Patients wear their trays for at least 20 hours a day and progress through a series of trays that get the smile to proper alignment. This type of orthodontic treatment is ideal for those who may be embarrassed at the idea of straightening the smile with metal appliances. However, it does require close compliance, so patients who choose this method should be committed to wearing their trays as directed.
  • Fastbraces – sometimes, patients with mild misalignment will find that alternative treatments may be better for them. This includes Fastbraces. The Fastbraces treatment as offered by Dr. Daniel Pulsipher will provide patients with faster movement of the teeth. This is because treatment works by moving both the tooth roots and crowns at the same time, in turn reducing the amount of time needed to get the final results. Many patients achieve a more desirable smile in months, not years!
