Orthodontic Services Provided by Saint Orthodontics
Here at Saint Orthodontics, we pride ourselves on being one of the most proficient orthodontic offices in El Cajon, CA and the surrounding areas. We provide a wide array of services that focus on treating orthodontic issues. We approach orthodontics from a whole-body health perspective, which means that we aren’t just solving problems in a patient’s mouth; instead, we are helping them to become healthy overall. Here are the services we provide:
Modern orthodontic treatment is for adults as well as teens. And even if you had braces before, your teeth might still shift over time, which is another reason to consider treatment as an adult. We offer adult orthodontic treatment at Saint Orthodontics.
At Saint Orthodontics in El Cajon, we offer clear aligners, an effective alternative to traditional braces. Using gradual force, clear aligners gently move teeth into alignment without the use of metal wires or brackets. Clear aligners are made with very strong plastic material that is fabricated specifically to fit the patient’s teeth.
We offer Invisalign to our patients who don’t want traditional braces. Invisalign uses a series of soft plastic aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth to gradually and gently straighten your smile. No wires or brackets to irritate your mouth! Unlike traditional braces, you can remove your Invisalign aligner during your oral hygiene routines and while eating your favorite meals.
Does your teenager need orthodontic treatment but dread spending their high school years as a “brace face”? They already have enough on their plate without having to feel anxiety over their smiles, which is why Invisalign is the perfect solution. With Invisalign, they can get the beautiful, healthy aligned smile they deserve without any brackets and wires.
Your first visit or initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs.
An ill-fitting mouthguard is not only uncomfortable, it’s also less effective at protecting you from impact, injury, and damage. Braces are an investment worth protecting. Even if you don’t always wear a mouthguard while playing sports, you’ll want to reconsider while wearing braces.
The reason we need retainers in order to keep our teeth in their post-braces position is that it takes time for our teeth, gums, and jaw bones to get used to this new arrangement. Dr. Rafo and Dr. Wright will help you determine which type of retainer will be best to suit your treatment needs and comfort.
Surgical Orthodontics is a corrective procedure that addresses issues with your mouth or jaw that affect the way you bite, chew and speak. During your consultation, we will discuss possible surgical needs and may refer you to an oral maxillofacial surgeon (OMFS).
