Do you worry that you are too old to straighten your teeth? You are never too old for orthodontics! In fact, about 25% of orthodontic patients are now adults. At our practice, we want you to know that a straight, healthy, beautiful smile is within your reach – no matter your age. Our dentist offers a number of orthodontic treatments and is happy to help you find the one that matches your personal needs and desires. In addition to traditional metal braces, more discreet options are often available so you can maintain a natural, professional appearance while you straighten your teeth. During your initial visit with our dentist, we will review all of your treatment options and help you choose the one you need for optimal results.
Most patients understand that a straighter smile is more aesthetic; however, not everyone knows that properly aligned teeth can help to improve your oral health and function as well. Orthodontic treatment can help you avoid severe tooth decay, gum and bone loss, TMJ/TMD pain, and irregular wear of the tooth enamel. To learn more about the benefits of adult orthodontic treatment, we welcome you to call or visit us today. We look forward to helping you achieve a straighter, healthier smile!

Braces are an orthodontic treatment option that can help you achieve a smile that is straighter and healthier. One of the most common orthodontic treatments available, braces work to improve your smile by gradually, gently realigning your teeth. Braces consist of a system of metal brackets, wires, and bands. The brackets are attached to the front of your teeth and are connected to each other through the use of a metal wire and bands. As we adjust the wire, the braces guide your teeth to their ideal positions in your smile. Ceramic braces are also often available, which are the same color as your teeth for a more discreet orthodontic option.
If you have ever wanted your smile to be straighter and more attractive, braces may be right for your smile.
With braces, we are able to correct orthodontic issues such as:
Problems with the bite, including crossbite, open bite, underbite, and overbite
During your treatment, you will visit our office on a regular basis so we can make sure that your braces are adjusted as needed to continue progressing towards a straighter, healthier smile. Our skilled dentist and team will help you reach all of your oral health and appearance goals through personalized, high-quality care. To learn more about braces, please contact our office today.
Early Orthodontic Treatment
Early orthodontic treatment is often highly effective. Children and teens are still growing and developing, making it easier to move teeth and jaws into their proper positions. Early treatment can also often prevent future problems from ever developing. We invite you to call Rana Dental today to learn more about early orthodontics in Roseville, California, and to schedule your child’s orthodontic consultation with our experienced dentist, Dr. Hetal Rana.
The childhood and teenage years are a great time for orthodontic treatment. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that a child receive their first orthodontic screening by the age of seven years, and we encourage you to bring your child to our office by this age to evaluate their need for orthodontic treatment. When we are able to start treatment early, we can often detect and correct potential problems before they become more serious. This can save you and your child time, as well as money.
Early orthodontic treatment is advantageous because a young child’s teeth have not finished erupting; this allows us to guide their eruption and address any problems at the earliest possible stage. Whether your child needs removable or fixed appliances, early orthodontic treatment can help to:
Provide more room for crowded erupting teeth
Preserve space for teeth that have not yet erupted
Create facial symmetry by manipulating jaw growth
Reduce the possible need for tooth extraction
Reduce the overall treatment time
When you bring your child to our practice, our dentist will be able to determine whether treatment is needed and when it should begin. If early orthodontic treatment is needed, we will create a personalized treatment plan for optimal results. For more information and to set up your child’s orthodontic consultation at our office, we invite you to call or visit us today!
Dr. Hetal Rana is a certified provider of Invisalign® in Roseville, California. Invisalign clear aligners are custom-made orthodontic appliances designed to help you correct your teeth without the use of metal brackets and wires! These comfortable aligners can help you achieve a beautiful smile while maintaining the natural appearance of your teeth throughout your entire treatment. Give us a call today to learn more about Invisalign and schedule your consultation with our talented dentist at Rana Dental.
Invisalign® is a great choice for our patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten your smile. Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth. As you switch sets of aligners about every two weeks, your teeth will be gradually, gently guided to their proper positions. You will also visit our office on a regular basis during treatment to make certain that your smile is progressing as planned.
In general, Invisalign can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues that are normally treated with braces.
Our orthodontist may recommend Invisalign to correct:
Gapped and spaced teeth
Certain problems with the bite, such as an overbite, open bite, underbite, or crossbite
During your initial visit, we will determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign. This treatment is often a good choice for adult patients and others who are interested in a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. In addition to being discreet, Invisalign aligners are also very comfortable because they are custom made from smooth, thin plastic. The aligners are removable as well, which allows you to easily remove them as needed in order to eat, brush, and floss. We welcome you to call or visit us today to learn more about Invisalign.
