Dental Braces in San Diego

From rotated teeth and large gaps to over or underbite problems, traditional orthodontic braces can cover a wide range of concerns that aligners simply can’t. Don’t let a complicated issue stop you from smiling – learn more about the affordable options available to you.


A Tried and True Smile Solution

While modern technology advancements have introduced a variety of smile-enhancing options, one thing is certain: traditional orthodontics, braces specifically, will never go out of style. Why? Because they’re still one of the best, most affordable ways to correct a complicated orthodontic issue.

Eliminate the temptation to remove an aligner and potentially extend the time it takes to achieve your perfect smile by choosing braces today!


Did you know there are many different types of braces available and that traditional metal is just one of many possibilities? Ceramic braces are popular options because, while they work the same way as metal braces, they utilize tooth-colored wires and ligatures. That makes them quite similar to clear aligners, as ceramic braces are much less visible than metal ones.

Don’t want your braces visible at all? Lingual may be right for you, as they go on the back surfaces of teeth instead of the front!

There are so many traditional orthodontic options to choose from, including:

  • Traditional metal braces
  • Ceramic/clear braces
  • Braces for kids, teens, and adults

Our team will happily discuss the best options for your situation.

The Benefits of Braces

Traditional braces don’t only serve an aesthetic purpose! They can help with:

  • Long-term oral health, as it’s very difficult to keep misaligned or crooked teeth clean.
  • Bite issues, which can also help reduce teeth grinding and jaw clenching.
  • A number of orthodontic issues that other options are not yet able to address.
  • Staying on smile track because, unlike clear aligners, you don’t have the ability to remove them as you please.

Plus, they’re very affordable and are typically at least partially covered by most dental insurance plans.

Retainers & Mouthguards

After orthodontic treatment, your teeth may try to shift into different positions. Retainers are used to keep your teeth in place and prevent them from moving after your perfect smile has been achieved.

Types of retainers we offer:

  • Traditional Hawley
  • Acrylic
  • Metal
  • Fixed
  • Clear/Vivera
