Meet Dr. Michael Choy – Your Farmer’s Branch Orthodontist
Our orthodontic specialist at Rio Dental & Orthodontics is Dr. Michael Choy. He is a board-certified orthodontist who received his basic dental training at the University of Southern California School of Dentistry, followed by specialized training in orthodontics at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine.
His training in orthodontics did not stop there, however. Dr. Choy is a proactive, life-long learner who studies constantly to keep abreast of the latest developments and treatment options in the field of orthodontics.
Traditional Braces vs Invisalign®
For our orthodontic patients, we offer two basic options for teeth straightening at Rio Dental & Orthodontics, traditional wire braces and Invisalign® clear braces.
Wire braces have been in use for decades, but the ones we offer are smaller and sleeker than those your parents or grandparents may have worn. In addition, they’re durable and cost-effect for both children and adults, providing improvements to your teeth that can’t be achieved by some of the other dental technologies in use.
If you choose this option for teeth straightening, metal brackets attached to the front of your teeth and elastic bands will work together to gradually straighten your teeth or close unwanted gaps in your teeth.
Initially, you may feel some sensitivity and slight discomfort, but your mouth will soon grow accustomed to the treatment and “toughen up,” keeping your discomfort to a minimum as your teeth gradually move into their new positions.
For those young people and adults who may be hesitant to wear traditional wire braces, Invisalign® clear plastic aligners provide an attractive alternative. With this treatment option, wire braces are replaced by a series of clear plastic aligners, each custom designed and fitted for your dental arch. As one aligner is replaced by the next in the series, your teeth gradually move into their new positions.
Invisalign® aligners are far less noticeable than traditional braces, and because they can be easily removed, you can take them off at meal time and continue eating your favorite foods.
You can go here to learn more orthodontics and also find answers to some of the questions you may still have about orthodontic treatment at Rio Dental & Orthodontics.
