Orthodontic Services in Manteca CA
If you’re dealing with issues, such as discomfort, that seem to extend just beyond treatments you expect from the dentist, you may require orthodontic treatment. Perhaps your problem is not with a particular tooth or its components, but with the overall position of your jaw. Or, maybe your bite, or the way your teeth come together when you close your mouth, is uncomfortable. Speak with Dr. Damle and our team at Aura Family Dentistry about your concerns, so we can determine if orthodontic treatment is right for you.

What Is Orthodontic Treatment?
Orthodontic treatment differs from general dental treatment. Orthodontics treats improper bites, which occur as a result of problems with tooth placement or jaw position. Patients are often more accustomed to thinking of orthodontics in relation to braces or retainers. However, general dentists often offer preventive treatment with oral appliances that temporarily reposition your jaw.

Which Orthodontic Conditions Do You Treat?
At Aura Family Dentistry, we provide treatment with oral appliances, referred to as mouth guards or night guards. These devices are removable and do not create any permanent shifting, such as braces or surgery. However, their effects may result in long-term improvement. Treatable conditions include:

  • Bruxism: This occurs when you grind or clench your teeth. You may do this during the day or while you sleep at night. Many patients are not aware of this action.
  • TMJ: This condition refers to a disorder of the temporomandibular joint, or the joint that connects your jaw to your skull.

Am I a Good Candidate?
If you are experiencing discomfort outside of our dental services, such as jaw pain or teeth grinding, you may be an excellent candidate for orthodontics treatment. Dr. Damle will provide a comprehensive exam of your mouth and ask you questions about your oral history. She will also discuss your symptoms, so she can pinpoint the source of your problem. If she determines orthodontic treatment can help, we will suggest you wear a night guard. Dr. Damle and our team also provide options, such as bonding and veneers, for mildly uneven teeth. However, for more advanced needs, Dr. Damle may refer you to an orthodontist.
