Invisalign

Ewa Beach Dentist

At Tokunaga Family Dentistry, we are pleased to provide orthodontic aligners as a safe, effective, and discreet option for straightening misaligned teeth. You may be able to achieve a healthy, beautiful smile using this non-invasive, aesthetic straightening option.

Traditional orthodontic treatments often include braces, with unattractive metal brackets and bulky silver wires. However, removable aligners are worn over the teeth and can be removed to allow you to eat, brush, and floss normally during your orthodontic treatment. Aligners are a comfortable, convenient, and easy to use solution for straightening your teeth.

Orthodontic aligners provide other health benefits in addition to straightening teeth. Teeth that are crowded, gapped, or misaligned are more difficult to keep properly cleaned and flossed. Over time, this can lead to a higher rate of tooth decay. Crowded and misaligned teeth are also more prone to issues like cracking and wear, due to improper occlusion (bite).

Straightening your teeth with orthodontic aligners can protect against these issues. Additionally, misaligned teeth are more likely to develop periodontal (gum) issues. Orthodontic treatment can help keep gums firm around the teeth, protecting against bacterial infections that can lead to periodontal disease.

By choosing orthodontic aligners to straighten your teeth, you can avoid many of the issues commonly associated with traditional braces. Our patients who choose orthodontic aligner treatment are much less prone to experiencing pain, discomfort, or mouth sores than those with traditional metal braces. Additionally, the ability to remove your aligners to allow proper brushing and flossing, can lead to a reduced rate of plaque buildup and tooth decay.

At Tokunaga Family Dentistry, we can help you achieve straight teeth and a beautiful, healthy smile with orthodontic aligners. For more information or to schedule a consultation, contact our Ewa Beach dental office.

ClearCorrect

Dr. Tokunaga and our Ewa Beach dental team are pleased to provide ClearCorrect orthodontic treatments to both new and existing patients of Tokunaga Family Dentistry. If you have crowded, gapped, or misaligned teeth you may be able to achieve a healthy, beautiful smile using this non-invasive, aesthetic straightening option.

For patients who have seen or heard about the Invisalign® clear aligner system, ClearCorrect is just as effective and works in a similar fashion to straighten your teeth. However, ClearCorrect aligners are fabricated solely in the United States and are generally available at a lower cost to you.

Traditional orthodontic treatments often include braces, with unattractive metal brackets and bulky silver wires. However, ClearCorrect is a clear, removable aligner that is worn over the teeth for at least 22 hours each day. They can be removed to allow you to eat, brush, and floss normally during your orthodontic treatment. ClearCorrect is a comfortable, convenient, and easy to use solution for straightening your teeth.

ClearCorrect provides other substantial health benefits in addition to straightening teeth. Teeth that are crowded, gapped, or misaligned can be more difficult to keep properly cleaned and flossed. Over time, this can lead to a higher rate of tooth decay. Crowded and misaligned teeth are also more prone to issues like cracking and wearing over time due to improper occlusion (bite). Straightening your teeth with ClearCorrect can protect against these issues. Additionally, misaligned teeth are more likely to develop periodontal (gum) issues. ClearCorrect can help keep gums firm around the teeth, protecting against bacterial infections that can lead to periodontal disease.

The ClearCorrect system is easy and convenient to use. First, you will have a consultation with Ewa Beach dentist, Dr. Tokunaga. We will review your oral health needs and determine if you are a good candidate for using ClearCorrect to straighten your smile. Next, a 3D model is created of your teeth. This model is used to design the steps of your individualized treatment plan based on your unique straightening needs. With this model, you will be able to see what your teeth will look like after treatment even before the treatment has begun. ClearCorrect aligners are custom-fabricated for your teeth. About every two to four weeks, you will change to a new aligner, slightly straighter than the one before.

By choosing ClearCorrect to straighten your teeth, you can avoid many of the issues commonly associated with traditional braces. ClearCorrect patients are much less prone to experiencing pain, discomfort, or mouth sores than patients with traditional metal braces. ClearCorrect also allows you to remove your aligners to allow proper brushing and flossing, leading to a reduced rate of plaque buildup and tooth decay.

At Tokunaga Family Dentistry, we can help you achieve straight teeth and a beautiful, healthy smile with ClearCorrect. For more information or to schedule a consultation, contact our office.
