Orthodontic Treatment Options
Dr. Naguib offers these orthodontic treatment options to patients in Palmdale and Lancaster:
This traditional orthodontic treatment gradually straightens teeth with metal wires and brackets. The brackets are glued to tooth enamel and metal wires are threaded through the brackets to mold and shape teeth over time.
An alternative to traditional metal braces, Invisalign utilizes clear aligners that shift teeth every few weeks. The aligners can be removed for eating and brushing teeth and tend to be more comfortable than metal braces because they don’t irritate gums. Invisalign has a shorter treatment time than traditional options and can provide straighter teeth to patients in six to eighteen months.
Once treatment with metal braces or Invisalign is complete, Dr. Naguib will provide you with a retainer. Retainers are used to keep your teeth in place and maintain their straight appearance. They can be worn at night to prevent teeth from shifting out of place.
Nightguards are an oral appliance worn at night to keep This solution is used to treat bruxism, or teeth clenching and grinding. Patients often unconsiously grind their teeth at night or in stressful situations. Nightguards prevent further wear and tear to teeth.
