A Trusted Orthodontist in Reno
Dr. Andrew J. Leland is a board certified orthodontist, a distinction held by only 33% of orthodontists.
He attended orthodontic residency at University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, dental school at UCLA and did his undergraduate studies at Santa Clara University, where he graduated with a BS in Mechanical Engineering.
Braces in Reno are an excellent choice for correcting complex oral issues. Since they can sometimes work faster at aligning teeth and closing gaps than other treatments might, 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 braces at Leland Orthodontics are a cost-effective orthodontic option in Reno.
Traditional metal braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have at Leland Orthodontics. They’re made out of metal or ceramic brackets that are 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 our doctors.
Reno Clear Aligners
Clear aligners are incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists in Reno and are the top treatment option at Leland Orthodontics. Instead of brackets and bands, our in-house clear aligner system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth.
Clear 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 them to, you’ll need to switch your aligners out for the next one in the series every 1-2 weeks as directed by Dr. Leland.
Clear aligners can only work if you follow the recommended guidelines exactly! You should wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. If you neglect to wear the aligners as directed, it can impede the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
Clear aligners are most efficient when correcting many of the most common orthodontic issues. A free consultation with Dr. Leland at Leland Orthodontics in Reno will allow us to determine if clear aligners are a good fit for your smile.
