A beautiful smile is an important aspect of a healthy life, and orthodontic treatment can greatly improve the look, function, and overall health of your teeth and jaws. Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that specializes in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of irregularities of the jaw, face, and bite (malocclusions).
Our orthodontists are proud to be FASTBRACES(r) providers. This technology provides patients with the most effective way to correct malocclusions quickly. It reduces active treatment time by up to 2 and a half months, while maintaining overbite and overjet correction, molar relations and coordination of the arches, and ensuring Class I intercuspation.
FASTBRACES® technology uses a specialized series of fixed and removable appliances to move and adjust the upper and lower teeth to help create a healthy, beautiful smile. The appliances apply constant, gentle pressure that helps the teeth move to their ideal position. When the teeth are properly aligned, the result is a good bite.
In addition to braces, our orthodontists use expanders and other fixed appliances to widen the upper jaw and make room for permanent teeth. These appliances can also be used to address crooked, crowded or malpositioned teeth.
Many adults think they are too old to receive a straighter smile, but the truth is that it’s never too late. In fact, close to 20% of all orthodontic patients are adults. To see if you are an excellent candidate for orthodontic treatment, schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Shokri or Dr. Kahan. Orthodontics in Woodland Hills
