Our dentists at Saba Road Dental Center in Richmond, offer Invisalign clear aligners or traditional metal braces as orthodontic treatment options to help you straighten your teeth and correct misalignment issues.
Straighten Your Smile!
Misaligned teeth can cause a variety of oral health problems. If your teeth are misaligned, your dentist can help you choose the right orthodontic treatment option for your smile. We offer orthodontic treatment with traditional metal braces or Invisalign.
Traditional Metal Braces
Dentists and orthodontists have been using metal braces to straighten teeth for decades. Over time however, advances in orthodontics have resulted in braces that are more comfortable, easier to care for, and lower-profile than ever before.
How Braces Work
A special dental bonding cement is used to adhere braces to the teeth which allows a system of brackets and wires to apply continuous pressure to the teeth. Over time, this pressure causes the teeth to gradually shift into straighter positions predetermined by the dentist.
While the pressure is applied and the teeth are moving, the supporting bone alters shape to accommodate the new positions of the teeth.
Invisalign Clear Aligners
Our Richmond dentists at Saba Road Dental Center are proud to offer Invisalign clear, custom, orthodontic aligners to help you achieve a straighter and healthier smile.
Post Treatment Maintenance
Once orthodontic treatment with braces or Invisalign is complete, a custom-fitted retainer must be worn full or part time to keep the teeth in their new positions.
