Most people have considered getting braces and improving their smiles some time in their lives. Braces can improve your appearance and improve your dento-facial health.
Why get braces? Most people who have jaw and tooth problems can be helped significantly with braces.
Obtain a Healthy, Beautiful Smile
Straightening your teeth and improving your bite will help you better prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and facial joint and muscular problems. When teeth and jaws are in the proper position, it is easier to clean, bite, chew, speak, swallow and smile properly. A healthy smile is also a beautiful smile and can give you a new-found confidence and affinity toward smiling. Badly spaced and crooked teeth can lead to periodontal disease (signs include red or swollen gums). Periodontal disease can eventually cause tooth decay, tooth loss, and even affect your heart’s health long term. Straightening your teeth and aligning your bite can help you prevent these serious and sometimes costly problems.
Straighten Misaligned Teeth
Do you dislike how your teeth look when you smile? Braces can correct your crowded, turned, over-spaced or misaligned teeth. This can improve the aesthetics and health of your smile. Braces can help align your teeth to allow for improved hygiene and facial aesthetics and can reduce periodontal problems.
Correct Jaw Problems
Do one of your jaws protrude or not close properly? Do you feel clicking or pain in your jaws? Orthodontics by itself or with other tools can help you fix a jaw misalignment (malocclusion) when your upper and lower jaws do not align properly. Aligning your jaws can fix many problems, including asymmetry, abnormal wear on teeth, jaw protrusion, chewing issues, and speech impediments. A proper bite can also relieve jaw joint pain, and headaches.

Dental Braces provided, Dr. Mahallati, South Coast DentistDental braces have come a long way – today's dental braces look, feel and function better than ever. Along with traditional metal braces, there are now a variety of dental braces to fit every need and budget. Clear dental braces use an innovative sliding technology instead of wires and have small, clear brackets that are virtually invisible. Lingual dental braces are metal braces placed on the back of teeth, completely hidden from view. Invisible dental braces don't use brackets at all; they include a customized set of clear plastic aligners that can be removed while eating, drinking, brushing and flossing. If a beautiful, straight smile is what you're after, you can't go wrong with dental braces – no matter what your age!
In the past, getting braces has meant years of painful adjustments and struggling with self-image. Clear aligners are a new system of straightening teeth without the use of conventional braces. Instead of wires or bands attached to the outside of your teeth, we use cutting edge technology to prepare a series of clear plastic molds, or “aligners” to move teeth. Every month we will check on your progress and give you the next aligner to keep your treatment on track.
The aligners are removable, making for easier eating, brushing and flossing. Clear aligners can improve the smiles of anyone with mild to moderate crowding or spacing, or anyone with over/underbites.
