Orthodontic TreatmentsTeeth that are out of alignment should be straightened for several reasons. Crooked teeth do not look attractive and will detract from your smile. And crooked teeth are not easy to clean. When teeth are crooked, you will not be able to properly clean them when brushing, and there will be areas where plaque will not be removed effectively. The same applies to your children's teeth. If you have a child with teeth out of alignment, the situation should be corrected.
Our dentist in Studio City has braces that will do the job for both children and adults. If your child needs braces, metal wires are the usual method of straightening children's teeth. Your child will be fitted for his or her braces, and they will be worn for the period of time that is required to do a proper job of adjusting the alignment of the teeth. It may take anywhere from one to three years for proper alignment correction to be accomplished. The length of time depends on the severity of the problem.
Your child will come into the office for periodic adjustments to ensure a proper fit and to alleviate any discomfort that he or she might experience. Our Studio City dentist will also instruct your son or daughter on the best way to brush the teeth in order to properly clean them. Your child will have straight teeth at the end of the treatment when the braces are removed.
Any problem with the alignment of teeth can be a difficulty in maintaining the hygiene of the teeth and a detraction from the beauty of them. Our Studio City orthodontist can help you with these problems.
