Orthodontics in Canoga Park
Orthodontics are an excellent way to straighten your teeth! While they are used to straighten teeth for an enhanced smile, they also help restore functionality to teeth, as well as your jaw and bite.
The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that all children should have an evaluation with an orthodontist by the age of 7 regardless of how many teeth have erupted.
This is because orthodontists are able to predict if any structural changes will occur to the mouth that may impede on a child’s bite and cause serious problems in the long term.
Adults Use Orthodontics As Well!
There’s a stigma still present in our society that believes only children and teenagers should partake in orthodontics. This is completely false. There is no age limit on when a person should begin orthodontic treatment.
Types of Orthodontics:
Traditional Metal Braces
These are the most common form of braces. While they are not nearly as appealing as clear, invisible braces, they are still highly efficient at correcting orthodontic problems and are very cost effective for price conscious patients. They come in many colors; even colors that help match the shade of your teeth for added concealment.
If you want to straighten your teeth, but don't want the unsightly appearance of metal braces, Clear Correct is a great option for you.
Clear correct is a type of invisible braces. Instead of using brackets, wires, and rubber bands, Clear Correct uses clear, customized aligners. These are removable and will change every few weeks to slowly guide your teeth into place. Clear Correct aligners are created using 3D printing technology with computer precision.
