We Offer Orthodontic Solutions For the Entire Family

Orthodontic care is more than just about cosmetics. Did you know that children as young as 4 or 5 can benefit from orthodontic treatment? It’s true; we can often prevent the need for more invasive orthodontic treatment through early interventional care.

In addition, with our in-house orthodontist, our team provides orthodontic care for every member of the family who might need it. Our services include:

  • Preventive Orthodontics – Bring your child in to see us as young as 1 year old. We will check their developing teeth, look for any signs of problems, and make recommendations accordingly. When they are 4 or 5, they may benefit from treatment to correct orthodontic problems and possibly avoid the need for braces in the future.
  • Dentofacial Orthopedics – If your child’s jaw is too narrow, they can develop breathing problems. This can result in a lack of good oxygen during sleep, which causes a number of other problems. We can have a custom appliance made that will widen their jaw and eliminate these breathing issues. We can also correct a crossbite that can cause a child’s face to develop an asymmetrical appearance.
  • Space Maintainers – If your child has lost one or more teeth but their permanent teeth have not begun to come in yet, they may benefit from space maintainers. These devices prevent their other teeth from shifting positions, keeping the space open for their permanent teeth to come through properly as they develop.
  • Traditional Braces – Standard metal braces have been used for many years because they are a reliable solution for a variety of orthodontic issues. They will correct the most crooked and uneven smiles, plus help with bite and alignment issues.
  • OrthoFX – OrthoFX is one of the top clear aligner companies. Patients can begin treatment for only $85/month. OrthoFX aligners are ultra-clear, stain-resistant, and very comfortable. Plus, you can try OrthoFX before you commit to treatment.
  • Invisalign – Invisalign was the first company to introduce clear plastic teeth aligners as an alternative to metal braces. Patients love that the aligners are discreet and comfortable. Just wear them for 20-22 hours each day, removing them for eating, brushing, and special occasions.
  • LightForce Orthodontics – Because these braces are custom made, using digital dental impressions, they have a more comfortable fit than traditional braces. They typically work in less time too.

You may be a bit overwhelmed by all of the possible options for orthodontics in Hawthorne, but our orthodontist will help you find the one that is best for you family’s needs. Call us today at 310-982-4895 to schedule your child’s complimentary consultation. You can also schedule online. Be sure to ask us about our in-house financing for orthodontic treatment.

Common Questions About Orthodontics

Which type of orthodontics is best?

Different cases require different kinds of orthodontics. That’s why we offer a variety of orthodontic treatment. Here you’ll find traditional braces as well as clear aligner therapy using either Invisalign, ClearCorrect, or SureSmile®. We also provide dentofacial orthopedics and space maintainers for early orthodontic treatment that can reduce the need for full orthodontic treatment down the road.

How much do orthodontics cost?

Each patient is different, and no two patients will require the exact same treatment. That’s why it’s difficult to put a price on orthodontic care without first doing an exam and creating a treatment plan. We invite your child in for a complimentary exam so we can work up a treatment plan and let you know the cost of straightening their teeth.

Can orthodontics help TMJ pain?

Orthodontics can be helpful in alleviating bite issues, which can in turn help lessen TMJ pain. During an initial consultation, we’ll give the patient our professional opinion about their situation and whether orthodontics are the right solution. If they aren’t, we offer other treatment for TMJ pain, including a professional mouthguard that will relieve tension on the TMJs.
