San Antonio Cosmetic Dentist offers Invisalign for Malocclusion
San Antonio, TX area patients seeking assistance from a cosmetic dentist are encouraged to take the time to learn about the services offered by Dr. Srikanth Cherukadu Vasalaa of Pearl Dentistry. Our practice gladly supports new and existing patients who are ready to address aesthetic issues with the smile, which may include malocclusion.
Malocclusion is the misalignment of the bite or dental arch that may not only affect the aesthetic appearance of the smile, but can affect the function of the teeth. Teeth that are not properly aligned may cause unwanted wear and tear on the natural tooth enamel which may result in the need for restorations later on. By adjusting the teeth into their proper locations, patients will enjoy a more beautiful smile for longer!
Our practice proudly offers Invisalign, a wonderful alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign works by using trays worn over the dental arch to gently move the teeth. This method eliminates the need for metal brackets and wires which are often unsightly and embarrassing. Patients love being able to address their misaligned teeth without it being obvious, thanks to the clear plastic used to fabricate these trays. Invisalign is best for teen or adult patients who understand the importance of compliance. If patients do not wear their trays day and night as advised, they may experience delays and other complications that will require more time or costs.
Invisalign works just as traditional braces do, and is incredibly affordable for many of our patients. Individuals need to book a consultation appointment and initial examination with our team to determine if they are candidates for treatment before pursuing services. Individuals with more severe cases of malocclusion may still be required to visit with a specialist such as an orthodontist to discuss the need for conventional braces.
Dr. Srikanth Cherukadu Vasalaa of Pearl Dentistry believes in treating malocclusion with effective, affordable solutions such as Invisalign. If you want to find out if you’re a viable candidate for aligner therapy, contact our team at (210) 910-1111 or visit us at 8714 Fredericksburg Road #106.
