Orthodontic procedures are a beneficial way to treat problems with the alignment of the teeth. When the teeth are out of alignment, this situation can create issues with the bite and also make it very difficult to effectively brush and floss the teeth.
Our expert in braces in Torrance can properly fit the teeth of any member of your family with braces, which will straighten alignment problems and reposition the teeth so that they will be attractive and straight.
Traditional metal braces are usually the choice for children who have alignment or crowding issues. If you have a child with one of these problems, our orthodontist in Torrance will expertly fit wire braces on your child’s teeth. Progress will be closely watched over the next one to three years, which is usually the length of time that is required to properly reposition the teeth. When adjustments are needed, as they may be periodically, our Torrance braces expert will do whatever is required to ensure that the braces are always fitting correctly. If there is any discomfort over the course of treatment, adjustments will also be made so that the braces will always be as comfortable as possible for your child to wear.
Our dentist in Torrance will also instruct your child on the appropriate way to brush their teeth while braces are being worn so that proper dental hygiene will be maintained. When treatment has been completed and the braces are removed, your child will have straight teeth and an attractive smile. With regular dental visits and good oral hygiene habits, your child will have teeth that will last him or her throughout their life time.
There are also procedures for straightening the teeth of adults. If you have an alignment or crowding issue with your teeth, our expert in braces in Torrance can fit you with invisalign. They are clear aligners that will not show when being worn, yet will still reposition your teeth and give you the alignment correction you need.
When crowding or alignment issues need to be dealt with, our Torrance braces expert has the proper orthodontic treatments to do the best job of repositioning crooked teeth.
