A straight, well-aligned smile not only looks fantastic – it’s key to proper oral function and long-term dental health. If you or your child are dealing with crooked, crowded, or misaligned teeth, the experienced team at Prewitt Dental in Sanger, CA, has you covered. Our skilled dentists Dr. Randy Prewitt, Dr. Timothy Prewitt, and Dr. Quincy Sofowora provide a full range of advanced orthodontic treatments to achieve beautifully aligned smiles and optimal bite positioning. Let’s explore how orthodontic care can transform your smile!

What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry focused on diagnosing, preventing, and correcting misaligned teeth and jaws. By applying gentle yet precise forces using fixed or removable appliances, orthodontics can reposition teeth into their ideal alignment over time.

The goal is to create a more esthetic, confident smile and establish proper jaw and bite relationships for improved oral health and function. Correcting orthodontic issues early on helps prevent more complex problems from developing.

Why You Should Straighten Your Teeth

While the confidence boost of a beautiful, straight smile is reason enough to consider orthodontics, there are also numerous oral health benefits to proper teeth alignment:

  • Easier cleaning to prevent decay and gum disease
  • Optimized tooth spacing to avoid crowding or impactions
  • Reduced abnormal wearing of tooth surfaces
  • Prevention of trauma to misaligned teeth and jaws
  • Improved ability to bite, chew, and speak correctly
  • Enhanced facial symmetry and profile

Our team customizes each orthodontic treatment plan to give you or your child a lifetime of healthy, well-functioning smiles!

Our Orthodontic Services

At Prewitt Dental, we utilize a variety of orthodontic appliances and techniques, including:

Traditional Metal Braces: These proven bracket-and-wire braces gradually reposition teeth into ideal alignment using gentle orthodontic forces.

Clear Braces: Made of translucent ceramic materials, clear braces are less noticeable but function similarly to metal braces.

Clear Aligners: A series of smooth, removable plastic aligners provide a discreet alternative to braces for older teens and adults.

Growth Appliances: For younger patients, interceptive appliances can gently guide jaw growth and tooth eruption before issues develop.

Retainers: After braces, customized retainers maintain the new alignment as teeth stabilize in their new positions.

Spacers & Separators: These small appliances create spaces between teeth for easier band/bracket placement.

No matter which orthodontic approach is right for your smile, you can count on our compassionate team to provide the highest quality, most personalized care. We make every effort to keep treatment efficient and affordable.

Maintaining Oral Health During Orthodontic Treatment

Having orthodontic appliances like braces in your mouth for an extended period means oral hygiene is more important than ever. Our team partners with each patient to empower them with the best techniques to maintain a healthy mouth, including:

  • Brushing thoroughly at least twice per day with an orthodontic brush
  • Using prescription-strength fluoride toothpaste or rinses
  • Flossing daily with an orthodontic flosser or thread
  • Avoiding hard, sticky, or sugary foods that cause damage
  • Attending routine dental cleanings and exams with one of our skilled dentists

Taking good care of your appliances, teeth, and gums leads to better orthodontic results and sets the stage for lasting oral health!
