Have Crooked Teeth?

   Back in the day, very few people with crooked teeth decided to get braces. Why? For one thing, discomfort was a big issue! Second, braces required head gear! No wonder the general public ran away at the mention of braces. However, modern braces have more options! These have changed drastically.

Rancho Dental

   At Rancho Dental we are known for giving people the smile they desire. This applies not only in our vast array of general dentistry options. Additionally, applies in giving our patients a straight smile with Orthodontics.

   If you have crooked teeth, you do not have to be afraid of head gear and discomfort! Rancho Dental believes in using highly trained specialists whenever possible. Instead of a general dentist dabbling in braces or Invisalign, we brought on a specially trained Orthodontist, Dr. Roy Miyamoto. He received his training at Washington University School of Dentistry, and now practices at Rancho Dental, and at a practice in Orange County. Dr. Miyamoto can help you choose between traditional orthodontics or Invisalign.

 You Have Options!

    Traditional Orthodontics: The bread and butter of Orthodontics, this method often gives the quickest and most precise results. Clear braces can be used so that the braces are much less visible than if metal braces were used.


   Invisalign: is a method of straightening crooked teeth using a series of clear removable trays that align your teeth “invisibly.” Not every case is best treated in this fashion, though many misalignments and malocclusions can be fixed with Invisalign.
