FAQs About Orthodontics

Some Common Questions that are patients have had over the 30 years we have been serving the Los Angeles Community
How are Orthodontic Issues Corrected?

Traditional braces used to be the only way to produce effective results. However, the advances in orthodontic technology have provided several new treatments to straighten teeth and correct your bite. They include: Traditional metal braces These braces are still available but have improved, offering a more comfortable and pleasing appearance. They use ties and brackets that attach to your teeth, holding them in place with an archwire that crosses over them. The wire applies pressure and slowly moves your teeth into their proper alignment. Adjustments are made throughout your treatment, usually 18-24 months. Clear braces These braces offer the same orthodontic benefits as traditional braces, but they’re made from ceramic or plastic, giving them a transparent appearance. They also use clear elastic and white metal ties, making them barely noticeable. Invisalign® Invisalign is a game-changing system that uses clear plastic aligners that fit over your teeth to straighten them. The aligners are almost invisible. To create your trays, the orthodontic team makes an impression on your teeth. Once your trays arrive, you wear them for 22 hours daily, trading out a new set every two weeks. Treatment takes 6-18 months, depending on your specific alignment problems. These treatments align your teeth, improve your bite, and give you your dream smile. They also improve your oral health.
