Posted on October 8, 2019

Orthodontists have become an important presence in the lives of a considerable number of people who are looking to correct misaligned teeth and jaws. The physical appearance of one’s teeth can have an affect on many aspects of someone’s health, and we’re here to help!

If you have maalocclusion, overbite, misaligned teeth or an overcrowded mouth, our Culver City orthodontist can work with you to alleviate the issues you’re facing. He will recommend the best possible treatment that will give you a beautiful appearance. Braces are an excellent option for treating teeth and jaw misalignment, and now, there are more options are available than ever before.

What Are Dental Braces?

Let’s start with the basics. Braces are appliances that use brackets and wires to transform the aesthetics and overall health of one’s smile. They can correct certain bite issues, like overbites or underbites, which can affect the way someone chews and smiles. Other vital roles of braces include aligning the teeth on the upper and lower jaws.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Dental Braces?

Orthodontists offer different braces for various age groups based on the treatment needs of the patient. Clear aligners are becoming more common for all ages as technology advances. If you notice that your child has an overcrowded mouth, you can visit an orthodontic office for analysis and recommendations. At TruSmile Orthodontics, we offer treatment solutions to provide you with the optimal result!
While one can receive braces at any point in life, there is one thing to note. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children receive their first orthodontic evaluation at age seven. Early intervention can yield positive results while taking advantage of the child’s skeletal bone growth. Your child may not need braces at this age, but it’s always a great time for a check-up! No matter the age, Dr. Zamani has a multitude of treatment options designed to give you the TruSmile of your dreams.

What Are the Different Types of Braces?

When you visit our orthodontist in Culver City, you will come across various types of dental braces. We will take into consideration what your treatment preferences are while providing the best recommendation based on our recommended treatment plan.

1. Metal Wired Braces
Metal wired braces are the most common type of braces. In fact, many people will picture them when the name “braces” is mentioned. These have been around for for many years and most are made of stainless steel. They are bonded onto the teeth with a wire and elastic ties made from rubber. It is good to note that modern metal braces are smaller in size and not easily noticeable like the earlier versions.

2. Ceramic Wired Braces
Ceramic wired braces, mostly referred to as clear braces, are highly preferred because they provide a cosmetic and aesthetic alternative to the metal wired braces. Our orthodontist, Dr. Zamani, offers an exceptionally clear braces option that have received glowing reviews from our patients. In fact, some of our patients who are involved in the local modeling and acting scene have received great feedback from their agents on how unnoticeable they are. With these braces, clear elastic ties are in conjunction with the ceramic braces to match your teeth shade.

3. Clear Aligners
If you want custom-made braces without wires or brackets on the teeth, consider clear aligners. They are a comfortable treatment option that allows greater easy of oral hygiene. Clear aligners are created using clear plastic, which makes them practically invisible! They are discreet, removable, easy to clean and comfortable.
