Orthodontics in Beverly Hills, CA
If you aren’t happy with the appearance of your teeth and aesthetic of your smile due to orthodontic problems, then Joshua Ayoub, DMD in Beverly Hills, CA may recommend appropriate orthodontic appliances to straighten your teeth, correct any associated problems, and improve your smile and self esteem.
Some of these problems include:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Misaligned jaw
- Large gaps between your teeth
- Over / under bite
These orthodontic issues not only affect the appearance of your smile, but also make it harder to maintain oral hygiene, increasing the risk of decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. Additionally, misaligned teeth and jaws exert more pressure on the chewing muscles, which can lead to headaches, shoulder, neck and back pain, and TMJ syndrome.
Orthodontics in Beverly Hills, CA- What to expect
During your appointment, Dr. Ayoub will assess your teeth and mouth to identify whether orthodontic appliances will be beneficial for your case. You can also expect a full dental and medical history assessment, a clinical exam, and special x-rays to examine the condition of the teeth roots. Models of the damaged teeth will also help in creating a customized orthodontic treatment plan.
With advances in dentistry, there are many types of fixed and removable appliances that can be applied in orthodontic treatment to help move misaligned/crooked teeth, retrain muscles, and influence the growth of your jaws. These include braces, space maintainers, head gear, splints, and removable retainers. They work by exerting a continuous but gentle pressure on your teeth and jaws for a period of between 6 and 24 months. They can be fixed or removable depending on your case.
At the end of your orthodontic treatment, you can expect:
- Improved health of your teeth, gums, and mouth
- Improved appearance of your smile and face
- Improved oral function – makes it easier to chew
- Longevity of your natural teeth - prevents excess strain on some teeth
