Many people associate braces with the childhood apparatus of wires and brackets. While traditional braces remain an effective solution to crooked teeth and problems with bite and alignment, adult patients may be disinclined to commit to treatment because of impact on their appearance. With advances in dental and orthodontic technology, new options exist for adults who wish to invest in a healthier and more attractive smile.
Correcting problems with alignment can help patients avoid oral health issues such as gingivitis and periodontitis, bone loss, cavities, worn tooth enamel and sensitivity, temporomandibular joint pain (TMJ/TMD), and headaches.
At Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry, Dr. Terry Vines, a doctor of dental surgery, has been serving the dental needs of patients in Redlands, Highlands, and Inland Empire for more than 25 years. Dr. Vines has assembled a team of clinically advanced dental physicians specializing in all aspects of dental health, orthodontics, oral surgery, pediatrics, family dentistry, and restorative dentistry. Our specialists include Dr. Brian Kwong, Dr. Caitlyn Affrunti and Dr. Travis Kinser.
For our adult patients who wish to straighten their teeth and improve their oral health, we offer traditional braces as well as two discreet options: clear braces and Invisalign.
Invisalign is a revolutionary system that gently and effectively straightens teeth using removable, comfortable, and invisible alignment trays. After a thorough consultation and a treatment plan that is customized to each patient’s unique needs, Invisalign clear trays will gradually move teeth into the desired alignment. Approximately every two weeks, a new tray will continue the straightening process. Because the trays are removable, Invisalign allows patients to continue their daily oral hygiene routine and eat their favorite foods without restrictions.
At Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry, our family-friendly staff is ready to help you achieve your optimal smile and oral health. Our state of the art office is located in a historically significant, beautifully renovated property near Inland Empire communities, at 303 Brookside Avenue, Redlands, CA.
