Orthodontics

A crooked smile isn’t merely unsightly. It’s also inefficient in its function and may even cause discomfort and problems for patients. For instance, crooked teeth are harder to properly clean. This leaves the patient at an increased risk of dental decay and gum disease.

Additionally, a misaligned bite or crooked teeth can affect speech, airway movement, and chewing. This can negatively affect nutrition and cause sleep disorders.

Fortunately, our dentists at Ocean View Dental Care can correct your smile’s alignment and improve its appearance and function.

One treatment option we offer is Invisalign® clear aligners. This is an innovative, effective, and discreet approach to orthodontics that eliminates the need for unsightly metal wires and brackets.

Invisalign Orthodontic Treatment

Invisalign achieves this by using a progressive series of removable, clear plastic aligners rather than the metal brackets and wires used with traditional orthodontic treatments. Although they are removable, you should wear the aligners for at least 22 hours a day for the best outcome. When worn as expected, you can progress to a new tray approximately every other week.

Since they are removable, the clear aligners allow for more freedom with food choices. They also allow for improved oral hygiene. In addition, they reduce or eliminate injuries and the pain associated with traditional braces.

And they do all this while being discreet. Because of the snug fit and clear makeup, they are practically invisible. This means that people standing right next to you most likely won’t even notice them.

What is Aviara?

The goal of Aviara is to create beautiful smiles and faces while enhancing the proper breathing and function of the orofacial complex.

Dr. Ahn utilizes the latest advanced technology to obtain the most accurate diagnosis. This allows her to achieve optimal results for overall comprehensive wellness.

Aviara is about guiding the proper development and growth of the face. This sets the foundation for a beautiful face and smile and helps form a stable, open airway. This is achieved by developing dental arches to accommodate all the natural teeth, eliminating the need for extractions.

The focus of Aviara is to identify and treat dysfunctional growth patterns. While it is possible to address these issues in adults, young patients who are still growing obtain the best outcomes. In fact, this process is most effective for children under eight years of age.
