Orthodontics Dentist Sioux City IAEarly Treatment Avoids Problems Later On

Dr. Kava has extensive orthodontic training for children that corrects problems at the crucial ages between 6 and 11. During these years, a child has a mix of their baby and permanent teeth. With his specific training and knowledge of craniofacial growth, he can identify problems of malocclusion and jaw disharmony as it evolves. Early detection and treatment can save children from future discomfort and pain.

Early correction also saves thousands of dollars for specialized treatment and any necessary extractions of permanent teeth as a teen. Dr. Kava will address the crowding of front teeth, crossbites of the back teeth, and mismatched lower and upper jaws to correct these issues in 6 to 18 months or less.

ClearCorrect Dentist Sioux City IAClear Aligners for a Straighter Smile

You will be happy to know Dr. Kava offers his patients ClearCorrect™ clear aligners that will straighten your teeth in only 9 – 15 months. They can adjust widely gapped teeth, overcrowding, overbite, underbite, or crossbite. The best part is that no one will know you’re straightening your teeth because they are virtually invisible.

With 3-D computerized imaging, a complete treatment plan is designed from the current position of your teeth to your final new smile. Clear thermoplastic aligners are made to fit properly over your teeth. About every two weeks you advance to the next set of aligners, as they gently reposition your teeth. Evaluation in our office is only needed about every one to two months. Treatment time depends on your personal goals.

Clear Dental Alingers Sioux City IARemain Confident During Your Treatment

There are several reasons to choose ClearCorrect™ clear aligners to correct crooked teeth. They are nearly invisible, and only detectable when someone looks at your teeth extremely close up. This lets you keep your confidence during treatment.

Aligners are completely comfortable to wear. There are no adjustments to be made to metal wires and no mouth irritation. Headgear is completely eliminated, and you will require fewer total dental visits.

Another huge benefit is that you can eat and drink whatever you like. You wear the aligners all day and during sleep, but you can remove them for eating or brushing your teeth. You will have a nice, clean look to your teeth once treatment is completed.
