Brentwood, CA dentist provides orthodontic services solutions for busy families
By Dr. Jamil Alkhoury
Your life is busy. Your schedule is hectic. Brentwood Family Dental understands just how jam-packed a day can get. We want to help our patients feel their very best. By offering orthodontic services to patients in the Brentwood and Walnut Creek area, we hope to help ease that time crunch you constantly operate under. We also make your comfort a priority and having the same professional for both your dental and orthodontic needs helps us achieve that. We provide our orthodontic services to all our patients, from the very young to the very old.
When you think of orthodontics, you probably get an image in your head of the traditional “metal mouth” of yesterday. While we do provide conventional braces and strongly recommend them for many cases, we also offer Invisalign, an alignment system that uses removable clear plastic trays to move your teeth into position.
Comparing conventional braces and Invisalign:
- Invisalign is for minor to moderate alignment issues. Conventional braces can be used for minor to severe alignment problems.
- Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners, which are worn at least 20 hours a day and are removed for eating and oral care. Conventional braces use brackets, wires, spacers, and rubber bands and remain on the teeth 24 hours a day.
- Conventional braces typically are tightened every 4 to 8 weeks during routine office visits. Invisalign patients wear a new alignment tray every two weeks.
- Invisalign isn’t recommended for younger teenagers because the alignment trays are removable increasing the possibility of not wearing the trays as prescribed or losing the trays. Conventional braces can be used for all ages.
Dr. Alkhoury is committed to helping patients of all ages have a beautiful smile. Give us a call to find out how we can help make your life a bit easier! 925-344-5296.
