Comprehensive Braces in Woodland Hills CA
We offer traditional braces, Six Month Braces, and Invisalign clear braces to meet the health and lifestyle needs of our patients. The treatment option that will work best for you depends on your unique needs and your goals for your smile.
Misaligned teeth are about more than just aesthetics. While having crooked teeth can certainly affect how you feel about your smile, it can also cause a number of dental conditions and complications such as decay, gum disease, and jaw pain.
At Mulholland Dental Care, Dr. Bobby Irani can address this problem with a comprehensive orthodontic care that addresses your health as well as the appearance of your smile. Dr. Irani received orthodontic training at Mid-Continent Orthodontics in Arizona over five years ago and has provided hundreds of patients with outstanding orthodontic care. Dr. Bobby Irani provides comprehensive orthodontic treatment for patients of all ages, from children to teens and adults!
Some of the most common conditions we treat with orthodontics include:
- Cross bite
- Overlapping teeth
If you have one or more of these conditions, orthodontic treatment might be the answer you are looking for to improve your oral health.
Comprehensive Braces for Any Age
When you come to our Woodland Hills dental office with concerns about your smile, we will provide a full evaluation to determine your treatment options. Dr. Irani will check your occlusion (bite), jaw joints, wear marks on your teeth, bone density, gum health, and teeth alignment to determine the best course of action to straighten and improve your smile.
Reliable Results with Traditional Braces
For some patients, traditional braces provide the best results. When you have severe malocclusion or have a complex case, traditional braces are a reliable and affordable option.
Traditional orthodontics utilizes brackets and wires to gradually move your teeth over time. You will come to our office for periodic adjustments until your teeth reach their ideal alignment. Traditional braces are sturdy, reliable, and provide outstanding results for most orthodontic conditions.
Six Month Braces
As the name suggests, they have the benefit of averaging only six months for treatment. Unlike traditional orthodontics, Six Month Braces utilizes a clear memory wire that steadily and gradually moves your teeth. Because the tension is constant, you will achieve fast results. Six Month Braces also uses tooth-colored brackets so that your treatment is more aesthetic than with traditional orthodontics.
Invisalign Clear Braces
Unlike traditional orthodontics and Six Month Smiles, Invisalign does not use the bracket-and-wire method. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligner trays to move your teeth over time. You wear each crystal clear aligner tray for 22 hours each day for approximately two weeks before you move on to the next tray. No one will even know you are wearing them!
Invisalign aligners are convenient because you can remove them to eat and clean your teeth, so many people find them a convenient option for orthodontic treatment. Invisalign may not work for some complex cases. Dr. Bobby Irani will let you know the treatment options that will give you the results you want!
Braces Compared to Invisalign
For many years, the only orthodontic solution for people with crooked and misaligned teeth was traditional braces that use wires and metal attachments to force the teeth into position. Now, a major advancement in orthodontic dental treatment, Invisalign offers patients several benefits over the conventional braces that many adults have stayed away from.
Patients who have ever used traditional braces know that they may be unsightly and hard to clean. Invisalign addresses all of these problems and more with its revolutionary design. Because Invisalign aligners are made with clear, dental grade plastic, they are much less noticeable which allows users to feel less self-conscious about their smile. Also, Invisalign eliminates the need for complicated cleaning tools and procedures because they are removable.
Patients who use Invisalign can simply brush their teeth the same way they always have after removing the aligners. The aligners can simply be rinsed clean with water or other cleaning solution. The biggest advantage that Invisalign offers over braces, though, is possibly the relief from the discomfort they can cause. Since Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth, they eliminate the friction and rubbing that causes irritation and, at the same time.
Our dentist in Woodland Hills says that braces have their advantages too. While Invisalign aligners work great for people with minor to moderate alignment issues, they may not be right for patients with more advanced orthodontic problems. Braces can be used to fix virtually all crooked teeth, even those of patients who are not candidates for Invisalign.
