Azusa dentist provides dental orthodontics treatments for both children and adult patients!
Whether you’re one of the thousands of adults considering orthodontic treatments annually or a parent looking for a dentist who can guide your child through straightening their teeth, Gentle Care Dentistry has you covered! Dr. Brianne Luu, serving the Azusa, CA area for over a decade, has built a practice dedicated to helping patients get the dental care solutions they need. One way she achieved this goal was by cutting down on the number of times a patient must be referred out to a different provider. By offering orthodontic solutions at the same location, people get to stay with a provider they trust.
Why orthodontic care is so important:
Orthodontics is the area of dentistry that addresses teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Teeth that don’t fit together properly, are crowded, or are crooked are hard to keep clean and healthy, leading to an increased risk of tooth decay. Additionally, misaligned teeth and jaws can lead to issues with chewing, headaches, TMJ syndrome and neck, back and shoulder pain. Having teeth straightened with orthodontic care leads to improved oral hygiene, decreased pain due to misalignments and increased self-confidence in the appearance of your smile.
Types of orthodontic solutions Gentle Care Dentistry provides:
- Traditional braces: When you think of braces, you picture metal brackets and wires. While other solutions do exist, some patients’ orthodontic problems require this orthodontic system.
- Clear braces:These types of braces are ideal for adults who want to fix minor to moderate alignment issues and achieve the straight smile they’ve dreamed of for years!
- Phase I Orthodontia: Luu has extensive experience treating children’s teeth. There are times in which it is apparent alignment issues will occur. Dr. Luu monitors jaw and palate development and determines if Phase I orthodontia is needed. We use an appliance that helps the jaw or palate to expand. This helps decrease teeth crowding.
