Sherman Oaks Orthodontist

Treatment Options to Correct Alignment

A beautiful smile of straight teeth can have a positive impact on professional and social life. Orthodontic treatments are available for children and adults at Sherman Oaks Dental Care & Orthodontics. We offer orthodontics in Sherman Oaks with several treatment options to provide the right solution to meet the needs of the individual patient.

Correcting Bite Problems

Although aesthetics are a main reason people seek orthodontics in Sherman Oaks, there are many other benefits of straightening the teeth. Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean, which helps prevent decay and gum disease. In addition, biting, chewing, and speaking clearly are easier with straight teeth. Childhood is the ideal time for orthodontic treatment, due to the natural growth process. However, treatment is possible at any age, so it is never too late.

Types of Orthodontic Appliances

Modern orthodontics offers many options for correcting bite problems, such as underbite, overbite, cross bite, and open bite, as well as crowding and excessive spacing. In order to correct these problems, the teeth must be shifted from their current position and into proper alignment. This is accomplished with light, constant pressure. In the past, metal braces were the only treatment method, but there are several types of appliances that work to straighten the teeth.

Some of the orthodontic treatments that are available include:

  • Traditional metal braces
  • Clear or tooth colored braces
  • Lingual braces
  • Invisalign
  • Clear Correct
  • 6 Month Braces

After treatment is completed, it is important to follow the directions of your Sherman Oaks orthodontist about wearing our retainer to prevent the teeth from shifting back into their prior position. Wearing a retainer helps to hold the teeth in place for the new bone and ligament to form around them, which helps keep your new smile looking great for life.
