CTx3 Anticavity Rinse

April 3rd, 2016

Many of our patients ask us if there are any special rinses or toothpastes they can use while they undergo orthodontic treatment.

As we all know, oral hygiene is very important, especially if you have braces. We recently came upon a new product developed by researchers of caries management, called CTx3 Anticavity Rinse. It also comes in gel and paste forms depending on your use preference.

What this product does is target the main causes of dental caries: demineralization, high sugar presence, and acidity of the oral cavity. The CTx3 line includes fluoride, xylitol, and pH neutralization.

Dr. Mozafari is highly impressed with this new product, heavily backed by research. We will be offering samples of the CTx3 Rinse in office soon!

Orthodontic Treatment Options

December 4th, 2015

If your teeth need straightening or jaws are misaligned, orthodontists can acquaint you with different treatment options.

Orthodontics can straighten your teeth and align your jaws for a healthier, more comfortable smile. Dr. Setareh Mozafari, our Cupertino orthodontist, offers free initial consultation to identify problem areas so that she can recommend the best treatment plan for your needs. Your individual treatment plan may include either traditional braces or Invisalign.

Traditional braces consist of brackets and wires to move your teeth into proper alignment. Brackets are made of metal or tooth-colored materials. Dr. Mozafari will need to make regular adjustments to move your teeth gradually and bring your teeth and jaws into perfect alignment.

Invisalign consists of series of clear aligners made of plastic material, which will progressively move your teeth into proper alignment. Each set of Aligners are worn for about two weeks before being exchanged for a new set. Aligners need to be removed when eating and brushing.

Contact us today to learn more about how orthodontics can improve your smile or to schedule your free consultation with Dr. Mozafari.
