Braces: Orthodontic Treatment

Braces are a great option in Los Angeles for those who need orthodontic treatment.

There are different types of orthodontic treatments available that treat a myriad of dental issues. Some dental issues that orthodontists treat are: an overbite, underbite, crossbite, an open bite, spaces or gaps, crowded teeth, or a displaced midline. These types of issues can develop naturally or may result from disease or injury. Orthodontics is an art. The orthodontist must adjust the braces and bands just the right way so that proper tooth and jaw alignment is achieved.
Braces are the most popular type of orthodontics. Braces are a type of treatment that consists of brackets, bands, and wires. It applies constant pressure to the teeth, slowly moving them to the desired position. We offer metal and clear braces. In addition, we offer retainers. We also offer Invisalign for those who are a good candidate for their clear aligner system. Dr. Bijan Afar and the orthodontic team at Mid-Wilshire Dental Care are highly skilled in orthodontic treatment and look forward to meeting with you and going over all of your options.

What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics at our dentist in Los Angeles can help fix misaligned teeth and jaws.

Orthodontic dentistry treats and corrects misaligned teeth and jaws. If a jaw isn’t working correctly, it can cause serious pain, including headaches and TMD. If teeth are misaligned, it can lead to decay, cavities, disease, and infection. In addition to poor oral health, crooked or gapped teeth can cause people to hide their smiles and result in lower confidence and poor self-esteem. Dr. Bijan Afar and the orthodontic team at Mid-Wilshire Dental Care are skilled and educated in all types of orthodontic treatment. If you think you may be in need of orthodontics, give us a call to set up a consultation today.

“I have long regretted not getting braces when I was a teenager. For many years, I have been hiding my smile or smiling with my mouth shut. Now, I am in my thirties and I thought that I was too old for braces. A friend of mine recommended Dr. Jacobson, so I decided to stop by Mid-Wilshire Dental Care and talk to them about my dental options. Can you believe it? Many of their orthodontic patients are older than I am. I decided to give it a try and it didn’t disappoint. I got my braces removed about three months ago and I can’t stop smiling. No matter how old you are - give Dr. Jacobson a call. Braces are for everyone!”
