Your Orthodontic Options

Many dentists will say that they offer some manner of orthodontic treatment, but the options a non-specialist can provide are very precise. If the treatments they have available are not the ones you need, then you would have to go to an orthodontist after the consultation anyway. To help save you some time, Dr. Ayoub would like to make sure you know the exact orthodontic treatments we have available.

Standard Braces

Our Bellflower dental practice can provide standard dental braces. We apply the established bracket-and-wire method to provide more consistent results in your treatment, or we can utilize a straight wire method in simple cases to reduce the amount of chairside care a patient may need. Both methods can help our patients develop a straighter smile for better health and an improved appearance.

We refer these treatments out when it is in the best interest of the patient to undergo specialist care. Examples that could require an orthodontist are cases where surgery is necessary before orthodontic care can be administered. Orthodontists coordinate with oral surgeons to develop the best plan for complicated orthodontic cases.

Removable Appliances

Our dentist in Bellflower can also outfit orthodontic patients with removable appliances to provide more effective care.

One of the most common of these appliances is the retainer, which is worn after braces are removed. These devices help the smile retain its alignment after orthodontic care, preventing the repositioned teeth from moving back into the original alignment. Another example of the appliances we provide is the mouth guards designed to wrap around braces and teeth. These are specially designed to allow you to play the sports you love without an increased risk of oral injury.

Invisalign® Clear Aligners

For some patients, the main concern behind their teeth realignment case is cosmetic. Straighter teeth are generally considered to be beautiful, and having an aesthetically pleasing smile is a common step in meeting an ideal self-image. To accommodate patients who require cosmetic orthodontic care, Dr. Ayoub provides Invisalign® clear aligners.

This system uses a series of plastic trays that are customized to fit your smile perfectly. Each set worn slowly repositions your teeth with a comfortable amount of force, and are then switched out for the next set until your teeth are in their ideal positions. Not only is this treatment difficult to see when worn, but they can also be removed to help you eat whatever you want.
