Do I Need Orthodontic Treatment?

Correcting your bite alignment can benefit everything from your risk of tooth decay and gum disease to the risk of injuries or embarrassment. Some of the situations when our Woodland Hills orthodontic provider recommends braces include:

  • Crowding
  • Crooked or rotated teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Open bites, underbites, overbites, and crossbites
  • Overall misalignment
  • TMJ issues

When teeth are properly aligned, they perform optimally. This reduces irregular wear patterns so that your teeth stay healthier, longer. In turn, it reduces strain on your TMJ and existing dental work. Best of all, properly aligned teeth are easier to clean, so they’re less likely to develop cavities and periodontal disease.

Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment

  • Improved Confidence and Self-Esteem: The confidence of a straight, healthy smile is priceless. Many of us refrain from smiling when we feel embarrassed about the way our teeth look. Correcting your bite alignment can give you a new outlook on life, making you comfortable laughing in groups, posing in photos, and feeling happier in social settings. And when we smile more, people will instinctively think we’re friendlier and more fun to be around!
  • Reduced Risk of TMJ Disorder: Misaligned teeth and jaws cause us to bite and chew our food abnormally, changing the way our jaw moves during meals. Over time, these discrepancies can lead to joint damage and TMJ disorder.
  • Better Oral Hygiene: Crooked and crowded teeth tend to harbor more bacteria around them, even if we brush and floss routinely. Correcting their alignment improves plaque control, which in turn lowers our risk of developing cavities and periodontal infections. Some specialists even consider orthodontics to be part of a comprehensive care plan for managing periodontal disease.
  • Reduced Enamel Wear: Teeth that don’t line up properly tend to have heavy pressure points where the enamel will wear down prematurely. These situations can also cause damage to dental work, leading to premature failure of dental fillings or crowns.

Common Orthodontic Treatments in Woodland Hills, CA

Each type of orthodontic treatment offers its own advantages and purposes. Depending on your oral health, age, and personal preferences, one type of braces may be better for you than another. Knowing what your options are can help you feel more confident about addressing your tooth misalignment, especially if you already have questions about the process.

Types of Braces to Consider

Traditional Braces

Traditional Braces

Conventional bracket-and-wire braces are straightforward and effective, regardless of how simple or complex your orthodontic needs are. They can be used on patients of all ages and are extremely affordable

Orthodontics - Ceramic Braces

Clear Ceramic Braces

Tooth-colored braces are similar to traditional orthodontics, but they’re more subtle as they blend in with your smile. Most people won’t be able to see them during casual conversations.

Clear Aligners (Invisalign®)

Treatments like Invisalign or other clear aligner systems use removable, transparent trays to straighten your teeth.

Orthodontic Appliances

Devices such as maxillary skeletal expanders (palatal expanders) or other orthognathic devices can help improve your orthodontic experience, improving spacing throughout your mouth and eliminating the need for surgical correction.

If you’re unhappy with your smile, schedule a consultation at Orthodontics in Woodland Hills to discuss your orthodontic treatment options.

What is an Orthodontist?

Orthodontists are specialists who use external appliances to straighten teeth and correct malocclusions (misaligned jaws and teeth.) They spend an additional 2-3 years in a specialized residency program after four years of dental school.

What to Expect During Your Orthodontic Consultation

If you’re considering braces, your first encounter with an orthodontist will be a consultation and exam. During this visit, you’ll talk about your concerns, discuss your options, and ask questions about the orthodontic experience. In turn, our orthodontic provider will:

  • Perform an exam
  • Take photographs of your teeth and facial profile
  • Take digital X-rays (including a panoramic or 3D CBCT scan)
  • Scan or take impressions of your teeth 

From there, you’ll receive a treatment plan that reviews your options, the proposed type of orthodontic therapy, and the time and costs involved. If you decide to get braces, we may be able to place your appliances on the very same day.

Cost of Orthodontic Treatment in Woodland Hills, CA

The price of braces or orthodontic therapy is dependent upon several different factors. Such as the type of braces you choose, the complexity of your treatment, and if you have insurance that covers a portion of your services. At Orthodontics in Woodland Hills, we also offer flexible payment options that allow you to budget your treatment into low monthly increments, regardless of which type of braces you choose. Our treatment coordinators will review all of the costs with you so that you know exactly what to expect before committing to treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I still need to see my dentist for checkups when I have braces?

Yes. It’s important to plan regular six-month checkups while you’re in braces. In fact, some people benefit from more frequent dental cleanings (every 3-4 months) because of the extra appliances that collect buildup throughout the day.

When should someone get orthodontic treatment?

Specialists recommend that children receive their first orthodontic evaluation by age 7 when they have a combination of both adult and baby teeth. Early intervention allows for corrections while the jaws are still developing, reducing the need for corrective surgery later on. However, adults and teens also make excellent orthodontic candidates in most cases.

What do orthodontists do?

Orthodontists are specialists when it comes to correcting malocclusion issues, tooth misalignment, and other orthognathic bite concerns. They offer a wide variety of orthodontic treatments ranging from traditional braces and clear aligners to interceptive growth modification.

Definition of common dental fillings terminology

Crossbite: A malocclusion in which the upper back teeth bite inside or outside the lower back teeth, or the lower front teeth bite in front of the upper front teeth.

Open Bite: A condition in which the upper and lower teeth fail to come together. This type of malocclusion is generally classified as anterior or posterior.

Crowding: Crowding is the lack of space for all the teeth to fit normally within the jaws.

Braces: Fixed orthodontic appliances, usually made of ceramic or metal, and consisting of brackets and wire designed to align teeth.

Orthodontist: A dentist who has been specially trained to do orthodontics.

Clear Aligner Trays: Clear aligners are transparent trays that are worn over teeth to move into proper alignment.

After visiting Dr. Zarrinnia for a while (half of my treatment time). I want to update my review. Everyone here is so friendly, Julie after I get to know her and understand her … I feels like I need to update my review in Yelp. Everyone has a bad day and that could be the day that I was first met her. Again I m highly recommended this place. Everyone care and friendly. The appointment and service is fast and accurate as expected. Thank you and please keep up your work ethic!

I went to Dr.Zarinnia and his team when I was a teenager for braces. My case was bad and almost needed major surgery. Luckily Dr.Z and his team are experts. The process took a few years for my case and the outcome was excellent. The process was smooth. They always took care of me and continue to years later. I would definitely recommend to my family and close friends.

Both my son and I have been getting braces treatment from Dr. Zarrinnia for the past 2 years. I recently just finished my treatment and have been very satisfied with the results. My son has another couple months to go but his teeth have come a long way as well and are looking good. I’m a busy guy so appreciate that when I have an appointment for an adjustment that I rarely have to wait more than 5 minutes. Dr. Z and all the technicians are super nice and adjustments are a breeze. I went with the clear ceramic braces. Most people were unaware I even had braces. Check out Dr. Zarrinnia and his team if you want to improve your smile!
