7 Ways To Clean Your [Clear Plastic] Orthodontic Aligners

 If you have misaligned teeth, then it is important to visit an orthodontic facility for a thorough examination. An examination at an orthodontic office includes X-rays of your mouth and facial structure to determine if you have mild to severe malocclusions. For mild to moderate malocclusions, you can often wear clear plastic aligners that are removable. Children cannot wear removable aligners because the devices can create a choking hazard for them, and due to a child’s rapid growth, it is difficult for them to have aligners that fit properly. However, teenagers and adults are the perfect candidates for Invisalign aligners that are customized to fit over their top and bottom teeth. Read more

5 Ways Orthodontics Can Help You

You’re never fully dressed without a smile ~Martin Charnin

Orthodontics is ready to help you. A day in Manhattan Beach, Calif., is not complete without a great outfit and smile, yet some people do not let their smiles shine because of an orthodontic issue. There is no need to live without smiling because you have the orthodontic specialists at the Beach Braces office to help you deal with any dental issues.

A good orthodontist knows how important a smile is. Smiling helps a person feel happier than they would otherwise, and correcting dental issues can help improve self-esteem. You know that self-esteem can propel you forward in more ways than one. Your happiness matters to a good orthodontist.

Orthodontics Can Help

The following are just some of the things you can expect your orthodontic specialist to help you with:

  • Excessive wear on the teeth due to grinding or other oral issues
  • Misaligned teeth or crooked teeth
  • Bad bites, underbites, or overbites
  • Structural issues with the jaw, which could disfigure your face in time
  • Gaps between the teeth

These issues can make someone self-conscious, and your orthodontic specialist can help you reverse these problems. Some of these problems are a lot more serious than you might imagine. For example, excessive wear can actually lead to sensitive teeth because the enamel is compromised.

Misaligned teeth or crooked teeth give bacteria and food particles an opportunity to hide from your toothbrush or floss. This means the likelihood of cavities or other ailments is heightened due to these orthodontic-related ailments.

Rest Assured

You can be sure that everyone in our office will do everything in their power to make sure that your smile is as healthy and beautiful as it is meant to be. We can deal with some of these issues using options like Invisalign. Invisalign aligners are like traditional braces, except they are removable and invisible. You can visit us in our Beach Braces website, or call us at 310-379-0006 to schedule an appointment.
