Orthodontic treatments may be recommended to treat teeth that are crooked, overcrowded, gapped or otherwise misaligned. Although children and teens are most likely to undergo orthodontic treatment, nearly a third of orthodontic patients are adults. Our Beverly Hills orthodontics treatments specialist can provide a comprehensive orthodontic evaluation for patients of all ages and will design a treatment program for maximum effectiveness.
A maloccluded bite can interfere with eating, speaking and dental hygiene. Although many people are attracted to orthodontics because a straighter smile is considered more aesthetically appealing, orthodontic treatment can actually improve dental health and reduce the risk of future dental problems associated with maloccluded teeth, such as TMJ disorders or bruxism. Each smile is as unique as its owner, which is why our specialist for orthodontic treatments in Beverly Hills will work with you to develop the right plan to address your concerns and meet your goals.
Expert in Orthodontic Treatments Beverly Hills
If you are a candidate for orthodontics, our Beverly Hills orthodontic treatments specialist may examine your overall dental health, take dental impressions and use diagnostic imaging to develop an appropriate plan. You may need from one to two years of orthodontic treatment using traditional braces or Invisalign clear plastic aligners. Both forms of orthodontics are designed to provide support for the crown, or visible portion, of the tooth while repositioning the roots.
In some cases, our Beverly Hills orthodontics treatments specialist may need to perform dental extractions or other procedures before orthodontic treatment can begin. Not all patients are candidates for Invisalign, which is generally recommended for older teens and adults. Traditional metal braces are often recommended for cases where teeth are severely misaligned or for younger children.
