Orthodontic treatment systems like FastBraces® and Six Month Smiles® make it convenient to correct misalignments of the teeth and jaw. At Ontario Chino Dental Center, cosmetic, family, and general dentist Krupakar “Reddy” Yeturu, DDS, offers orthodontics to people of all ages using advanced techniques.
Fastbraces® can quickly correct the crooked teeth in your smile by straightening your misaligned teeth in an average of one year – sometimes even faster!
What if you could straighten your teeth in a shorter period of time? Fastbraces® are designed to straighten your teeth faster so you can achieve your ideal smile sooner! Our dentist is pleased to provide Fastbraces as a fast, safe, and affordable alternative to traditional braces. While the average treatment time with traditional braces is 18-30 months, Fastbraces can straighten your teeth in an average of only one year – and in some cases, in just a few months. Fastbraces uses a new, patented triangular bracket design, a special heat-activated wire, and cutting-edge techniques to straighten your teeth faster.
Traditional braces straighten your teeth by first moving the crowns of the teeth (the portion of the tooth that is visible above the gums), and then repositioning the roots of the teeth. In contrast, Fastbraces works on moving the roots of the teeth beginning on the first day of treatment to make your orthodontic experience more comfortable and efficient. By realigning the roots and crowns of the teeth simultaneously, Fastbraces shortens your treatment time. With Fastbraces, we offer both metal and ceramic brackets; ceramic brackets are a good choice for more discreetly straightening your teeth.
Invisalign® is a great option for discreetly straightening your teeth! Dr. Krupakar Reddy Yeturu provides these comfortable, custom-made clear aligners to correct your misaligned teeth without hiding the natural appearance of your smile behind bulky appliances! Invisalign® is a great choice for our patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten your smile. Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth. As you switch sets of aligners about every two weeks, your teeth will be gradually, gently guided to their proper positions. You will also visit our office on a regular basis during treatment to make certain that your smile is progressing as planned.
In general, Invisalign can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues that are normally treated with braces. Our orthodontist may recommend Invisalign to correct:
During your initial visit, we will determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign. This treatment is often a good choice for adult patients and others who are interested in a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. In addition to being discreet, Invisalign aligners are also very comfortable because they are custom made from smooth, thin plastic. The aligners are removable as well, which allows you to easily remove them as needed in order to eat, brush, and floss. We welcome you to call or visit us today to learn more about Invisalign.
Orthodontics is a dental specialty that diagnoses and treats misalignments of the teeth and jaw. It uses custom oral appliances, like metal braces or clear plastic aligners, to gradually move your teeth into the proper position.
Orthodontics makes your smile appear more balanced and symmetrical. It also improves your oral hygiene. When your teeth and jaw are properly aligned, they’re much easier to clean and care for.
Ontario Chino Dental Center uses orthodontics to treat various alignment issues, including:
You might also benefit from orthodontic treatment if you have noticeable spaces between your teeth.
Ontario Chino Dental Center, offers several types of orthodontic treatment, including:
FastBraces are similar to traditional metal braces, but they have a unique design that speeds up the treatment process. First, your provider bonds a series of triangular brackets to your teeth. Each bracket connects to a thin wire that extends to the roots.
The brackets and wires place mild pressure on both the crowns and roots of your teeth. Over time, that pressure changes their position, improving their alignment. Most people complete FastBraces treatment within 6-12* months.
Six Month Smiles is an orthodontic treatment system that uses a series of clear, custom-crafted oral aligners. The aligners snap snugly over your teeth and place mild pressure on them.
Clear oral aligners are unique in that you remove them when eating or brushing and flossing. To speed up the treatment process, wear your aligners for 20-22 hours a day.
The length of time that orthodontic treatment takes depends on the system used and your adherence to the treatment plan. Most people achieve their desired results in 6-12* months, but it may take up to 18.
Before recommending a particular orthodontic treatment system, your Ontario Chino Dental Center provider conducts an oral exam and asks about your goals. Afterward, they take oral X-rays to assess the alignment of your teeth and jaw.
Once your provider gathers the necessary information, they design a custom care plan that aligns with your needs.
