Orthodontics without braces
Many people want straight teeth without wearing braces and without grinding down their teeth to fit caps and/or veneers. Dr. Hsu is one of the few dentists in California who utilizes a method to straighten teeth by using custom made removable orthodontic appliances. Teeth can be straightened dramatically depending on how often the patient wears the appliance. A patient must wear the orthodontic appliance for a minimum of 12 hours a day in order for this orthodontic procedure to be effective. For those who wear it more than 12 hours a day and make all their orthodontic adjustment appointments, treatment can be completed in as little as 6 months. One of the great benefits of this orthodontic procedure is that the patient has the ability to remove and store this appliance when he or she is going out to a social event. Below and to the right are some examples of cases done using this effective orthodontic procedure.
