Aligning your teeth makes them easier to clean, but it also has a huge impact on your appearance. As an Invisalign provider, Dr. Capellan can help you straighten your teeth at our Boca Raton, FL dentist office without having to refer you out to an orthodontist for traditional brackets and wires.
Clear, removable braces, such as Invisalign™, make it easier for you to keep your smile clean and avoid problems like tooth decay and gum disease. The advanced system uses removable plastic trays that are easy to care for and comfortable to wear. No one will ever have to know they’re there!
An orthodontic evaluation allows Dr. Capellan to assess your child’s oral development. During the evaluation, Dr. Capellan will inspect your child’s teeth and gums, as well as the bones and muscles in your child’s mouth. An orthodontic evaluation will give you the ability to plan ahead for your child’s future dental needs.
Your child might need a space maintainer if they lose a tooth early or have a baby tooth extracted. If your child needs a space maintainer, Dr. Capellan will custom make it to fit your child’s mouth. Its purpose is to keep the space where the baby tooth was lost open in order to allow the permanent tooth to come into place.
Baby teeth are vital to the healthy development of adult teeth, jawbones, muscles. Often, if a space maintainer is not used, your child’s other teeth can shift into the open space and future, more invasive orthodontic treatment might be needed.
Orthodontic aligners are designed to straighten your teeth without the wires and brackets of traditional braces. In most situations, the aligners can straighten teeth anywhere from 6 to 18 months, depending on your dental needs. If you want a straighter smile without using conventional wire braces, ask Dr. Capellan if orthodontic aligners could be right for you.
