Family Orthodontics

Family Orthodontics

There is never a wrong time to receive orthodontic treatment. Whether you are younger or older, taking care of your oral health will not only improve the condition of your teeth but also maintain the health of your body.

Children, teenagers and adults can all benefit from orthodontic care at La Jolla Cosmetic Dentistry & Orthodontics, and we provide treatment rooms and services for your entire family. Rather than visit more than one orthodontist to accommodate you and your children, Dr. Kohani can provide comprehensive care to patients from all walks of life.

Orthodontic Services for Younger Patients

For younger children, receiving orthodontic care can be crucial. By the time a child turns seven, they should consult with an orthodontist who can identify any problems that may arise in the future.

During an appointment, Dr. Kohani will examine your child’s teeth and bite position, which will allow him to predict any orthodontic concerns that may occur when permanent teeth begin to erupt. If Dr. Kohani notices any malocclusion, he can suggest a preventative method of treatment.

Usually, children who exhibit tooth crowding or a poor bite position are candidates for braces. Teenagers might consider Invisalign for aesthetic reasons and if the parameters of their treatment plan allow it.

Available Treatments for Adults

As an adult, learning that you need orthodontic treatment may be the last thing you want to hear. Mental braces may be acceptable for younger patients, but not suitable for adults; however, correcting your teeth and bite position is possible without detracting from your appearance.

Upon an examination, Dr. Kohani may recommend accelerated adult orthodontics, which helps older patients improve the alignment of their teeth more efficiently than with traditional metal braces. The solution also involves more cosmetically appealing treatment methods, such as ceramic braces and Invisalign.

Providing Care for You and Your Family

The goal of accelerated adult orthodontics is to improve the health and appearance of your smile without compromising the way you look. Treatment also allows you to straighten your teeth without a prolonged time commitment, which will make you more likely to receive treatment.

You and your family can benefit from quality orthodontic care no matter your age. Dr. Kohani and his team work together to create an environment that is comfortable for every patient. For children, parents are invited to sit in the examination room with their child while adults receiving treatment will experience high-class patient care.
