Beautiful results with Invisalign® removable braces

Beautiful results with Invisalign® removable braces

Invisalign® is a comfortable alternative to the typical "railroad tracks" metal braces. It uses removable transparent mouth trays so inconspicuous that other people usually will not notice that you have them in. The timeframe for each patient's treatment varies and will be determined beforehand, but the process typically takes 9 - 18 months. From the beginning, patients can see images and videos, from several angles, of how his or her teeth and bite will look during each week of the process! Ask about an Invisalign® consultation with Dr. Cruz-Davis.


X-rays (Radiographs)

Cruz Davis Dental has made the switch from traditional film X-Rays to Digital Radiography, which uses a fraction of the radiation with superior imaging quality and diagnostic capability.

X-rays are a helpful tool in medicine that allow the doctor to see areas that the human eye alone cannot, such as within the tooth structure, below the gum line, or to the bone itself. We understand concerns about radiography, and patient safety and health is our first priority.

Pregnant Women

Nothing is more beautiful than an expecting mother. Pregnant women's lives and bodies change drastically during pregnancy, but the necessity of professional oral healthcare does not.

Oral health issues, like tooth decay and gum disease, have been linked to a number of chronic health problems in adults - including heart disease - as well as to low birth weight babies. Please advise the doctor and hygienist if you are pregnant so the necessary precautions can be taken. Pregnant women, schedule your dental work while reclining in the dental chair is still feasible.
