We offer metal braces and Invisalign for all ages. Correct malocclusion issues and improve your smile.
About the service
At Mountain Bay Dental Implants and Orthodontics, we have a reliable team to offer solutions for your malocclusion issues. If your teeth are crooked, it can be difficult to reach all the pockets to get rid of food particles and tartar, thus leaving you more vulnerable to periodontal disease. People who have crooked teeth have higher odds of having obstructive sleep apnea. Severe misalignments may contribute to problems with speaking, chewing, and psychological well-being.
Contact Mountain Bay Dental Implants and Orthodontics if you need braces in Los Gatos to correct teeth misalignments. Our orthodontics team is qualified to provide braces near you in a professional way.
What Causes Bite Malocclusions?
Many things can contribute to bite misalignments, from genetics to bad oral habits to poor oral hygiene and trauma. Visiting a dentist in your area can get your malocclusion issue caught early on, and treatment begins at the right time.
Traditional Metal Braces in Los Gatos, CA
We suggest metal braces for patients between 8 and 14 years of age when the mouth is still growing and likely to be susceptible to teeth shifting or moving in place. But older patients can still have metal braces.
Our Los Gatos dentist bonds each metal bracket to the front areas of every tooth, attaching it with a metal wire. The duration you wear the braces depends on the treatment plan and the nature of the issues you have; for instance, overbites, underbites, large gaps, and misaligned teeth. Depending on your situation, you can expect the treatment to last between 18 to 24 months or lower or higher.
Invisible Braces in Los Gatos
Adults, teens, and kids are nowadays opting for the Invisalign® clear aligners. These almost invisible, removable trays are comfortable. Our dental braces expert will custom-make the aligners after a teeth impression. Unlike traditional wire braces, Invisalign aligners are removable. They are also much more comfortable since they don’t have wires that irritate the teeth and gums. You wear the aligners 22 hours daily for roughly two weeks before switching to the subsequent series of trays.
Caring for Your Invisalign® and Traditional Wire Braces
Whether receiving Invisalign in Los Gatos, CA, or traditional wire braces, you must brush twice to three times daily and floss once daily. Clean your aligners with a solution recommended by our dentist in Los Gatos, CA. Remove the aligners while eating, and ensure you cleanse them before putting them on.
Avoid using mouthwash when undergoing Invisalign treatment since these liquids have chemicals that could damage the aligners or stain-causing substances that could discolor your aligners. For traditional wires, you can use mouth washing solutions to cleanse your mouth of bacteria and other germs.
