Beautiful, straight smiles for a lifetime
Having crooked teeth not only causes embarrassment and loss of confidence, it is also unhealthy. It can lead to problems such as gum disease, an unaligned bite, and difficulties with the jaw joint. Dr. Aguilar has been providing teeth straightening dental services for years. He loves to help young kids, teens and adults achieve a beautiful smile with straight teeth.
How orthodontics can help your child
Having straight teeth is more than just having a beautiful smile. Teeth that are crooked or crowded make it more difficult to keep them clean, and that opens the door to periodontal disease. Orthodontics also addresses jaws that are not aligned properly. When this happens, there is extra tension in the jaw muscles, especially when chewing. Many people with jaws that are not aligned suffer from headaches and other problems with the jaw joint, or the TMJ.
Dr. Aguilar is passionate about creating beautiful smiles as well as optimum oral health for all his patients. His many years of experience with orthodontics means he can provide the best options for teeth straightening and jaw alignment for you or your children.

Your teeth straightening options
Dr. Aguilar is very experienced with teeth straightening technology and can explain which option is the best choice for your, or your child’s, particular dental situation.
Braces have been the staple of orthodontics for decades, but today they are less bulky and feel much more comfortable than previously. Dr. Aguilar uses CAD/CAM software to show the patient the ideal position for their teeth, and he even provides a comprehensive 30 page report on his roadmap to get the results you want.
As each dental patient is different, so is the length of time it will take for traditional braces to straighten teeth. In general, the average is 1 to 3 years. Traditional braces work very well, producing beautiful smiles and greatly enhanced oral health. Dr. Aguilar offers low monthly payment plans to help you afford braces for yourself or your teen.
Invisalign Clear Teeth Straightening
Invisalign straightens teeth invisibly. There are no metal brackets, wires, rubber bands or springs involved. Instead, Dr. Aguilar uses his diagnostics to create a custom, clear plastic tray that fits over your current teeth. The aligners are changed out about every two weeks for a new one, which continues to put gentle pressure on the teeth in order to move them into the correct position. Dr. Aguilar can discuss this option and whether you are a candidate for this type of teeth straightening.
