Ceramic Braces “ Clear Braces “

Ceramic braces are tooth colored braces that are used to straighten teeth. They are preferred by many people, especially adults who often want to avoid metal braces. Ceramic braces are much less noticeable than metal braces. In fact, most people do not notice them unless they are up close to a person. Small ceramic pieces are glued to each tooth, and a wire is placed across the top and bottom teeth. These braces are made of a very strong and durable composite material, and they do not stain unless a person eats or drinks many foods that typically stain teeth.

A Braces Friendly Diet

A Braces Friendly Diet

One of the first things your orthodontist will give you when you have braces put on is a list of foods that you are not supposed to eat. There will be some foods that are frowned upon and some foods that are completely forbidden. The orthodontist makes these recommendations for a reason. The brackets and wires that are moving your teeth are not invincible. They can be damaged by food. In addition to avoiding foods that might cause damage to your teeth and braces, there are also foods that you will want to eat more often, to enhance the health of your teeth and gums as well as to ease the tension in your mouth as your devices move your teeth around.

Top 1% Invisalign Orthodontist in San Jose

 HEALTHIER TEETH AND GUMS

Swollen, red gums can often be the result of having teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced. Unfortunately, these are also signs of periodontal disease. When teeth are properly aligned, it helps the gums fit more securely around the teeth, allowing for the strongest and healthiest defense against potential periodontal problems. That’s where Invisalign comes in. The comfortable and clear aligners gently and gradually begin to move your teeth into the proper position — without unsightly brackets and wires.

As always, we try and keep up with latest and greatest technology in dentistry.

They are then sent to Invisalign (like an email) along with the perscription of your treatment and aligners a shipped within 2-3 weeks! How awesome is that!?
Not only do we submit your Invisalign scan with the iTero scanner, but before we recieve the aligners we can also show you a simulation of what your teeth will look like BEFORE you get your aligners! It wont be an exact result of your final treatment but VERY CLOSE! This technology has even been featured on the TV show "The Doctors"  Dr. Yao is currently a Top 1% Invisalign and Invisalign Teen Provider in the Bay Area.

Why You Should See an Orthodontist

Teeth and jaws that work well tend to look good, too.  For more info, click here.
