Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that diagnoses and treats malpositioned teeth and jaws. When your teeth are in alignment, they’re easier to access and clean. As a result, you’re less likely to experience tooth decay or gum disease.
Orthodontics also improves the cosmetic appearance of your mouth. When your teeth are straight and symmetric, you can laugh, speak, and smile confidently.
Orthodontics can address a wide variety of common oral health problems, including:
Orthodontics can also close gaps or spaces between your teeth, restoring balance to your smile.
At Dental Arts of Beverly Hills, Dr. Dayan and Dr. Yue offer several types of orthodontic treatment, including:
Traditional braces use metal wires, brackets, and rubber bands to gradually realign your teeth. The treatment process is safe and effective, but it comes with dietary limits. For example, you can’t eat popcorn or chew gum.
Traditional braces aren’t removable and they require regular cleaning and follow-up appointments.
Clear aligners are see-through, oral appliances that fit snugly over the surface of your teeth. They put slight pressure on your teeth and jaws, gradually repositioning them over time. Dental Arts of Beverly Hills offers three types of clear aligners: Invisalign®, ClearCorrect, and SureSmile®.
Clear aligners are removable, allowing you to eat your favorite foods. However, to achieve the best possible results, it’s important to wear your aligners 20-22 hours each day.
To determine the type of orthodontic treatment that will benefit you, schedule an appointment at Dental Arts of Beverly Hills. Following an oral exam, a review of your oral health history, and a discussion of your goals and budget, your provider can develop a custom care plan that aligns with your needs.
The length of orthodontic treatment varies from person to person and depends on your oral misalignments. Most people achieve their desired results in 12-18 months.
After you’re finished wearing your traditional braces or clear aligners, you transition to a retainer for about a year. A retainer prevents your teeth from moving out of place.
