Braces for San Diego Smiles

Because a straight smile is a healthy smile!


Why Braces?

Everyone wants a beautifully aligned, straight smile. It looks great. It helps you feel confident about your appearance. However, having straight teeth is more important than just having a great-looking smile. Why?

At PDO Specialists, our number one goal is to help you have a healthy smile. Crooked teeth have shown to have a significant negative effect on overall and oral health. Straight teeth protect the health of your teeth and gums in many ways, including:

 Healthier gums - Gums fit more securely around straight teeth, giving you the strongest defense against disease-causing bacteria.

 Healthier teeth - Straight teeth are easier to clean. Crowded teeth make it difficult to floss, causing plaque build-up, which can lead to decay.

 Preventing tooth wear - Uneven teeth often contact other teeth at wrong angles, causing wear or cracks in the enamel.

 Preventing alignment problems - Misaligned teeth can lead to jaw misalignment and TMJ disorder, causing headaches and neck pain.


Types Of Braces

Whether you or your child want colorful braces or Invisalign, our San Diego orthodontists are pleased to offer a variety of solutions to achieve your treatment goals and objectives.

Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces are the most common braces offered by orthodontists. Metal brackets are bonded to the teeth and connected by a thin metal archwire. With pressure, the metal braces can guide teeth to their correct position while the archwire is periodically adjusted and tightened.

Damon Clear Braces
Damon Clear Braces is a frictionless and clear brace system that moves teeth with lighter and comfortable wires. Instead of using abrupt heavy forces, Damon Braces use a light and continuous force to move the teeth, giving stunning results!

The Invisible Alternative

These clear, thermoplastic aligners are used to straighten teeth effortlessly for both TEENS AND ADULTS! Since Invisalign is almost invisible, they are aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Plus, the aligners are removable for easy brushing and eating.
