December 7, 2012
Dr. Jared Gianquinto – Orthodontist in Bakersfield CA – believes in excellence. Combining state of the art technology with individualized patient care allows Dr. G and his team to create incredible smiles. However, what Dr. Gianquinto is most passionate about is the life-altering confidence that comes with wearing a smile you are proud of.
Ceramic Braces (Clear Braces):
Ceramic braces (also referred to as “clear braces”) offer an aesthetic alternative to the orthodontic patient. Ceramic dental braces are just like traditional metal braces with the exception that the brackets that are bonded onto the patient’s teeth are clear or tooth-colored, as opposed to metal.
Clear braces are nearly invisible, though they are worn just as traditional braces are. Because the brackets are clear or matched to the natural color of your teeth, the aesthetics of this treatment is superb.
Self-ligating braces are essentially brackets that do not require tying (or ligating) the arch wire into the bracket with tiny ‘O-rings’ or wire ties. self-ligating braces tend to move teeth more freely with less friction along the arch wire, which generally results in less treatment time for our patients.
TADs (Orthodontic Anchorage):
Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs) provide efficient and flexible biomechanics. Dr. Gianquinto’s latest generation of TADs significantly enhance treatment capabilities and can be extremely effective in reducing treatment time, surgeries, and extractions.
Indirect bonding represents a step-by-step process that allows to fundamentally reduce the amount of chair time involved when bonding brackets to a patient. Dr. Gianquinto’s indirect bonding system greatly improves the patient experience, as the process significantly reduces the patient’s chair time spent holding their jaw open to accommodate bonding.
In other words, the indirect bonding system allows complete bonding in roughly 10 minutes vs. the 45 to 60 minutes that patients would typically experience during conventional bonding procedures.
Invisalign – The Clear Alternative to Braces
A great option for people who feel a little self-concious about having braces, Invisalign uses a system of clear aligners that straighten teeth without brackets and wires. Invisalign is affordable, comfortable, and makes it easier to maintain good oral hygiene while undergoing treatment.
