Orthodontics in San Marcos by Dr. Rasika Jain
Beyond the aesthetic benefits of a straight smile, orthodontic treatment yields a number of functional and health benefits for patients. At Smiles of San Marcos, Dr. Rasika Jain is committed to ensuring each patient receives the right orthodontic treatment for health and beauty of their smile.
My Orthodontic Options
Developing an effective orthodontic treatment plan for each patient requires taking an in-depth look at each part of the individual’s smile, including their teeth, jaw alignment, and gums. Prior to selecting your treatment, our San Marcos orthodontist provides each patient with a free visual consultation.
Once a patient has decided to undergo orthodontic care, additional diagnostics are performed. Using an advanced CT scanning machine, Dr. Jain is able to determine which treatment method will yield the best results. In order to address the diverse needs of our patients, Smiles of San Marcos offers a number of different orthodontic options, including:
For adult patients looking to improve the aesthetics of their smile, Invisalign® offers a convenient and discreet way to achieve your ideal smile. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® uses clear trays to gradually shift the position of the teeth into the correct alignment. Invisalign® is most effective when used to correct minor crowding or perform cosmetic movement rather than extensive realignment. As the success of Invisalign® relies heavily on patient compliance, this treatment is often recommended for adults.
Similar to traditional metal braces, ceramic orthodontia use a series of brackets and wires to reposition teeth. However, ceramic braces are tooth-colored or clear, providing patients with a less noticeable method of straightening teeth. As they can be used in more extensive cases of realignment and do not require diligent patient compliance in order to be effective, ceramic braces are ideal for anyone looking to improve their smile without the appearance of metal braces.
The most recognizable braces, metal braces are an excellent option for patients of all ages. Metal braces can be used to treat a variety of orthodontic issues, making them the most versatile treatment option. As patients visit our San Marcos orthodontist regularly to check-in on treatment progress, adjustments can be made as needed to keep your treatment within the expected timeframe.
