Los Angeles pediatric orthodontics Expert Specializes in TMJ and TMD Treatments

Los Angeles, CA – Dr. David Alpan, a Los Angeles pediatric orthodontics provider, notes that the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is one of the most complex in the human body. TMJ collectively refers to the jaw bone and the associated muscles and ligaments. Everything works together to create some complex motions – such as the combination of rotating and gliding that opens and closes your mouth – and permits you to chew and speak. Problems with the correct operation of the joint are called TMJ disorders (TMD).

Dr. Alpan, a braces provider explains: “The majority of Americans have some TMD. But, only few of these people will get the help they need. If you are experiencing many of the symptoms, contact a dentist who can supply a wide range of treatments.” Continue reading Los Angeles pediatric orthodontics Expert Specializes in TMJ and TMD Treatments

The Invisalign aligners are individually created for each patient. The Invislign technique employs a series of aligners that will be switched every two weeks by your orthodontist. Over time, your teeth move into place, and eventually they will reveal your brand-new smile.

However, Alpan, a Los Angeles braces provider, points out that an experienced Invisalign provider must fit your aligners.

All about Incognito Hidden Braces

Las Vegas, Nevada – Mention braces and most people think of unattractive “train tracks” stuck to the front your teeth. But, there is another way: Incognito Hidden Braces attach to the backs of your teeth. Only you will know you are wearing braces. Sometimes this kind is called lingual braces because the orthodontist attaches them on the tongue or “lingual” side of the teeth.

The first step is a visit to the orthodontist. “We make thorough and precise impressions of your teeth. Next we send those impressions – with the prescription- to Incognito’s lab,” says a Las Vegas orthodontics expert, Dr. Alpan, . “They use the impressions to fabricate stone models.” Continue reading All about Incognito Hidden Braces
