Your trusted Myrtle Beach orthodontist
Dr. Juan Faja-Fernandez earned a Bachelor of Science in biology from Marion University, where he graduated summa cum laude. He then attended the Medical University of South Carolina, where he earned his Doctorate of Dental Medicine and certificate in orthodontics.
Orthodontics is continually evolving, and Dr. Juan wants to give patients the latest and greatest when it comes to their smile investment. He attends continuing education courses on a regular basis at both a local and national level.
Myrtle Beach braces
Traditional metal braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. They’re made of metal or ceramic brackets affixed to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics.
These brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply the gentle pressure that will gradually move the teeth into the positions we want them to be in as long as you have regular adjustments with Dr. Juan.
Braces in Myrtle Beach are an excellent choice for correcting complex tooth issues. Since they can sometimes work faster at aligning teeth and closing gaps than other treatments, overall treatment time may be slightly reduced.
Braces don’t require some of the more complex technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, meaning Myrtle Beach braces are a cost-effective orthodontic option.
Myrtle Beach Invisalign
Invisalign is incredibly popular with patients and orthodontists in Myrtle Beach and is the top alternative to traditional braces. Instead of brackets and bands, the Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and customized to fit snugly over your teeth. To keep your teeth moving in the direction you want, you’ll need to switch your invisible trays out for the next one in the series every one to two weeks, as directed by Dr. Juan.
The Invisalign system can only work if you follow the recommended guidelines. Aligners should be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. If patients neglect to wear the aligners as directed, it can impede the results and add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is most efficient when correcting many of the most common orthodontic issues. For some complex cases, Invisalign may not be a good option. A free consultation with Dr. Juan at Seabreeze Orthodontics in Myrtle Beach will allow us to determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
