Dentistry @ Its Finest offers complete orthodontics in Costa Mesa for children and adults. From traditional metal braces to Invisalign® and Propel®, our office can address your cosmetic and dental health concerns with appropriate care. Orthodontics is often used to reposition the teeth and bring balance to the bite, supporting both a healthier and more beautiful smile.
Orthodontics for Adults
It is never too late to straighten your smile and boost your confidence.
Orthodontic treatment can offer many benefits for your dental health and your quality of life if you have been suffering from an uncomfortable bite, crooked teeth or a bite disorder such as TMJ. Dr. Ayzin offers complete orthodontic care for adults in Orange County and can work with you on an individual basis to evaluate and address your specific needs. The goal of your treatment is to identify any underlying dental problems so that your end result is stable and lasting. Tooth position should not only allow the teeth to make proper contact when biting but also allow the jaw joints to function naturally, without muscle tension.
The type of braces recommended will depend on your unique dental health needs and any cosmetic goals or concerns you may have. For many patients, Invisalign clear aligners are considered a suitable treatment option. Most adult patients will prefer using clear, comfortable aligners to straighten their smile to avoid the embarrassment of wearing metal braces in social or professional settings. Other orthodontic treatment options include:
- Metal braces: for patients with moderate to severe concerns who may also need an oral appliance to correct a bite problem.
- Clear ceramic braces: more suitable for mild to moderate orthodontic concerns but offering a more discreet option.
- Invisalign: clear aligners to reposition teeth in mild to moderate cases.
Orthodontics for Children
Orthodontic treatment in children and young adults can address dental problems that could impact the comfort, function or appearance of a growing smile down the road. Dr. Ayzin screens young patients for bite and jaw development concerns and will recommend orthodontics when appropriate for the long term dental health of your child or teen.
We offer all types of braces for children and teens including clear aligners when appropriate for the needs of the patient. In some cases, an oral appliance may be the recommended treatment or part of a broader treatment plan. This is typically to address a jaw development issue or more complex tooth position problem such as overcrowding.
What is early orthodontic treatment?
Early intervention of phase one orthodontic treatment is recommended when a development issue has been identified that will impact the proper growth and/or function of a child’s bite. There is a range of development-related concerns that can arise, the majority of which are genetic in nature. In some cases, a myofunctional habit such as thumb-sucking has affected the development of a child’s teeth and the use of an oral appliance or early braces may be necessary to avoid more complex problems down the road.
Early orthodontic treatment should be designed to support the healthy and stable growth of your child’s smile so that they can enjoy optimal oral health as an adult. Orthodontic screening around the age of 7 can identify any concerns and help your child enjoy a beautiful smile as they grow.
