Welcome to Alpan Orthodontics (AO), the Los Angeles orthodontic offices of Dr. David Alpan & Associates. Dr. Alpan is a third-generation orthodontist, with a team committed to improving the quality of patients’ lives with high quality results in the shortest amount of time, with the least discomfort, while staying in budget. Kindness, courtesy and respect are the foundation for our delivery of care.
Orthodontics is the only specialty that can affect your smile, airway, bite, TMJ, facial appearance and overall dental health. Our orthodontic team uses the most current technology and techniques to provide children, teenagers and adults balanced, healthy, and beautiful smiles.
Digital Scanning & Accelerated Orthodontics
AO offers digital scanning with impression-less molds, which means there’s no messy gunk in your mouth in the process. Accelerated orthodontics is offered with any orthodontic treatment option you choose, providing the opportunity to complete treatment in 40-50% less time. We also offer 3D digital orthodontics, starting with the end in mind, which helps you reduce treatment time in the office, the number of office visits, and a high-quality finish.
Temporal Mandibular Joint (TMJ)
Many patients with misaligned bites suffer from headaches and chronic pain in their jaw muscles and TMJ joints. Correcting the bite with orthodontics may relieve these symptoms, but Dr. Alpan also offers TMJ/TMD Treatment therapies for more complex situations that may not require orthodontics.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
AO has adopted a “Whole Health Philosophy,” and is incorporating airway and breathing as part of the considerations when changing your bite and teeth relationships. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) has become one of the leading causes of morbidity and is associated with many degenerative diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, ADHD, cancer, stroke, and obesity. The symptoms of OSA can be treated and improved in adults and completely prevented with early treatment in children and teens. Dr. Alpan is now offering treatment for existing OSA conditions and preventing OSA in growing children. If your child is suffering with airway or breathing issues, please call our office today for a free consultation.
We understand how important the cost for braces is, so we offer payment plans with zero interest, most orthodontic insurance accepted, assistance with Flex Spending Accounts (FSA), and a financial solution that works for you without compromising the quality of care. Dr. Alpan says, “If you don’t look good, he doesn’t look good.”
