ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT IN FRESNO, CA
Orthodontics is a type of dentistry that aligns the teeth and jaw to improve a person’s overall oral health and give them a straighter, more functional smile. Dr. Castillo offers braces for both adolescent and adult patients to achieve a beautiful smile.
Benefits of Orthodontics
Failing to correct a misaligned or abnormal bite can result in oral health issues later in life. This can include tooth decay, gum disease, tooth loss, affected speech and chewing, wear to tooth enamel, or jaw issues. Benefits include a healthier mouth, more beautiful smile, and teeth that last a lifetime.
Traditional metal braces consist of brackets, elastic bands, and wires. Brackets are bonded to the teeth and wires are strung through the brackets. Small elastic bands will secure the wires to the brackets. The elastic bands come in many colors for kids and teenagers and clear and silver styles for adults. Though braces can be uncomfortable at first and limit what you can eat, they are the most effective way to straighten the teeth. After the braces are removed, you will wear a retainer to keep the teeth in their straight position.
