Orthodontics in Oxnard, CA
Are you looking for a dentist near you to help improve the appearance and quality of your smile or the smile of your child, but you’re unsure about what type of orthodontic procedures may help? If so, we’ve compiled a list of the most commonly asked questions we hear at Dentistry by Seabridge so you can gain a better understanding of the multi-disciplinary general, cosmetic, family, and orthodontic care available from our dentist in Oxnard.
What treatments are typically classified as orthodontic care? Some of the most common conditions that can benefit from orthodontics from our dentist include the obvious one of crooked teeth, but beyond that, we can treat crowded teeth, spacing issues between teeth, overbites, crossbites, and more.
Do you treat patients of all ages? Yes, as a leading general and family dentist in Oxnard, our dentist can help patients of all ages improve the quality of their smiles – and often without the use of old-fashioned metal braces thanks to the many advancements made in dental aligners.
Can adults wear dental aligners? Yes, many aligner manufacturers, including the ones used by our dentist, are designed to be sensitive to the needs of adults. That means aligners can be removed for short periods during business meetings or other business-related activities where you may want to keep your orthodontic treatment private.
Is there a way to make sure that my teen is wearing their aligner? Yes, some manufacturers have a built-in detection device, so our dentist – and you! – will know whether or not your child is taking full advantage of the investment you’ve provided.
Can’t I just use over-the-counter or online ordered aligners for orthodontics near me? It’s becoming more evident from news reports that over-the-counter aligners have significant drawbacks, which include the potential for persistent pain and lack of proven efficacy.
