Crooked Teeth Impact More Than Your Smile

While a good first impression starts with your smile, crooked teeth impact more than aesthetics. Misaligned teeth make it harder to brush and floss properly, thereby increasing the risk of bacterial plaque, which can lead to periodontal disease. When left untreated, gum disease can damage soft tissue, cause receding gums, and result in formation of pockets between your teeth and gums. In advanced stages, bone loss and eventual tooth loss can occur. Crooked teeth can also cause bite issues, teeth grinding/clenching (bruxism), chronic headaches, and painful, debilitating symptoms associated with temporomandibular (TMJ) disorder.

The Diverse Benefits of Orthodontics

Orthodontics for Adults

Clear aligners such as Invisalign,  ClearCorrect, and SureSmile have opened up the door to new possibilities, especially for adults that didn’t have the chance to straighten their teeth as teens. Nearly 80% of adults that had their teeth straightened said it was one of the most valuable transformations they had ever done. More than 90% said straight teeth affected their confidence positively while about 75% indicated they saw some positive impact on their life as a result of teeth straightening.

Invisalign in Brentwood, CA is a comfortable and nearly invisible option for straightening teeth that eliminates the cumbersome brackets and wires required with traditional metal braces. Using the 3Shape TRIOS scanner, our team takes a fast and precise 3D digital scan of your teeth to map out a custom treatment plan. The aligners are made of a comfortable, BPA- and latex-free plastic called SmartTrack®. You’ll wear your aligners a minimum of 20 hours a day and change them out about every two weeks as your teeth gently move into the targeted position. In addition to being discreet, clear aligners can be removed for flossing, brushing, and eating. While the entire process can take as little as six months, average treatment lasts about 12–18 months. After treatment, the Vivera® retainer helps ensure that your transformed and beautiful smile stays that way! More than 11 million people have straightened their teeth with Invisalign since the company received FDA approval for their clear aligners in 1998.

ClearCorrect in Brentwood, CA is an alternative to traditional braces for image-conscious adults or teens worried about the stigma associated with metal braces. Similar to Invisalign, ClearCorrect straightens your smile with a series of removable, clear BPA-free aligners fabricated from clear and discrete thermoplastic materials. You’ll wear the aligners a minimum of 20 hours a day and change them out about every three week as your teeth gradually move into alignment. Although ClearCorrect received FDA approval 11 years after Invisalign, they have experienced over a decade of success and treated more than six million patients to date with their clear aligner technology. When you visit Balfour Dental for a clear aligner consultation, we’ll discuss both options so you can make an informed choice that best fits your needs and budget.
The purpose of retainers is to maintain the aligned position of your teeth after “active” orthodontic treatment is complete. Wearing retainers as recommended is essential for ensuring your transformed smile endures and shifting doesn’t occur. Removable retainers are clear, thin, slightly flexible, plastic-like material that fit the exact shape and placement of your teeth. Fixed or permanent retainers are made of a thin metal wire glued behind your teeth.

Occlusal guards are removable mouth guards that help prevent wear and tear on your teeth caused by bruxism. Sports mouth guards are used to protect your teeth and smile during sports or recreational activities. We also specialize in creating customized oral appliances that resemble a sports mouth guard to alleviate sleep apnea. It’s important to visit a dentist with experience customizing mouth guards to ensure they meet American Dental Association standards. Our mouth guards are created from an impression of your teeth, fabricated from FDA-approved resilient material, and customized to properly fit your mouth and adapt to your oral structures. Customized mouth guards are made to cover all your teeth on one arch, stay comfortably and securely in place, and maintain high-impact energy absorption.

Before your child’s adult teeth grow in, we’ll check to see if their upper jaw has enough room to ensure adult teeth erupt properly. Then goal is to prevent malocclusion, tooth extraction, and the need for orthodontics. The upper jaw develops as two separate halves that don’t completely fuse together until sometime after puberty. Prior to that, it’s possible to gently separate and stabilize the two bones over a period of several months. As such, this treatment must be completed before your child’s jaw fully develops and is most effective in younger children. Widening the upper jaw with a palatal expander helps create adequate space to prevent crowding or impacted eye teeth without extracting any teeth. We customize the expander to fit over several top teeth in the back of your child’s mouth. The appliance has two halves connected in the middle with a screw that can be adjusted to gradually widen the upper jaw.
