Early Orthodontic Treatment
There is no set age when children require orthodontics. The treatment plan will depend on individual needs. For example, kids with cleft palates get orthodontic appliances before their first teeth erupt.

The abbreviation “TMJ” stands for each of the 2 matching “hinges”, called temporomandibular joints, situated on each side of your head.
Clear Aligner Treatment
Clear aligners straighten your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances. The aligners are virtually invisible, which means most people won’t even know you’re going through treatment. And because they are removable, you can continue brushing, flossing and eating whatever you like.
Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth.
Once the Active Phase of your Orthodontic treatment is completed, your orthodontic appliances will be removed. Retainers help protect your new smile.
Types of Braces
Patients with bite irregularities can get braces from our Los Angeles orthodontists to improve their appearance and pave the way for a lifetime of better oral health.
Lingual braces – braces placed behind the teeth – are a new type of orthodontic treatment used to restore tooth alignment. Not many dental clinics offer lingual braces treatment since it is still a method of being newly adopted by most.
