Orthodontics Dentistry Huntington Beach
A great smile can be marred by crooked or misaligned teeth. In some cases, the health of surrounding teeth may be also be affected. Orthodontic treatment can repair these issues and bring teeth into the proper position, creating a beautiful smile.
There are several different choices for orthodontic treatments. Most cases can be treated with traditional fixed-wire braces. Fixed-wire braces can take as short as six to eight months to several years to achieve the desired results depending on the severity of tooth crowding issue and what developmental stage of your teeth is currently in. A careful evaluation of the teeth and their position is required to ensure the teeth move into the correct position, and may require several adjustments to prevent unwanted changes or causing new malocclusion issues. While it does take time, this conventional orthodontic treatment is safe and effective for both children and adult patients needing corrections. Our orthodontist has extensive training and clinical experience in treating children and adult orthodontic cases.
For some patients, the appearance of the metal brackets, the discomfort of the appliances, and the difficulties in keeping the teeth healthy during treatment may deter them from this option. At Ayoub Dental Corp, we also offer Invisalign for patients who want to achieve straight teeth while staying comfortable and keeping the treatment more discreet.
