No matter where you live you should be able to have the finest dental care available. At Kimodontics our office is equipped with the latest dental equipment and technology and our doctor, Dr. Sharon Mia Kim, DDS is experienced with all the latest techniques in orthodontics. For instance, if a patient is not satisfied with how their smile looks or has an uneven bite or crooked teeth our dental care in 89117 practice can help straighten their smile using the latest innovations in invisible braces and aligners.
Patients may feel self-conscious about the way their teeth and smile look but the malocclusion frequently is associated with an uneven bite, or crowded teeth, which can cause real dental problems. Orthodontics is used to slowly move our patients’ teeth to their proper positions. Our dental care in 89117 practice utilizes many different techniques to accomplish the perfect bite depending on the specific problem and the patient’s lifestyle. For some patients our dentist recommends traditional braces and retainers, where brackets are attached to the teeth and wires are then threaded through the brackets. Our practice utilizes several different types of braces, some less noticeable than the traditional silver wire type such as clear ceramic braces, which are almost invisible and INBRACE that goes on the back of the teeth.
The latest in orthodontics offered by our dental care in 89117 practice is Invisalign. Instead of wires and brackets Invisalign works through the use of a series of clear plastic trays, called aligners. These aligners are custom developed for the patient’s mouth and are each worn for two weeks in succession. Each aligner gently pushes the teeth a little bit further towards the desired position. Invisalign has two major advantages over traditional braces for many of our patients; first they are virtually invisible, so nobody knows you are wearing them. Second, the aligners can be taken out of the patient’s mouth for eating or teeth brushing, making dental hygiene much easier. If your bite concerns you please visit our office for a consultation with our dentist.
