Orthodontic Braces for Los Angeles
Orthodontic options with braces
Based on individual differences in candidacy and treatment requirements, a number of orthodontic options are available from our Los Angeles braces experts.
Clear braces, such as our clear aligners, are available in multiple forms to suit different age groups and treatment goals and can take less time to correct teeth compared to bracket-based options.
Treatment using braces with brackets
Orthodontic treatment can vary significantly depending on the type of braces being used. With metal, lingual and ceramic braces, patients visit our expert in braces in Los Angeles to have the brackets bonded to their teeth and wires threaded through those brackets. Throughout treatment, regular wire tightening gradually moves the teeth into position.
Treatment using clear aligners
Patients treated using clear aligners have dental impressions taken for construction of aligners, which vary in number based on the amount of correction required.
During clear aligner treatment, progress is monitored, and aligners are progressively switched at regular appointments. The options open to patients can vary depending on treatment goals and individual factors determined at an initial exam by our Los Angeles braces experts.
By scheduling a consultation with our orthodontists, patients can learn more about how braces correct teeth and discuss their candidacy for different options.
