Aesthetics is an important concern in any dental treatment, but when it comes to orthodontics (straightening crooked teeth), the conspicuousness of braces can cause some patients to neglect treatment altogether. Unfortunately, crooked teeth are more than a cosmetic concern. When teeth are misaligned, your bite may not function properly, and excessive, uneven pressure can lead to damaged teeth and/or damaged or misaligned jaw joints (TMJs). To address our patients’ cosmetic concerns as well as improve the look and function of their misaligned bites, Dr. David Alpan offers a wide range of discreet orthodontic treatments, such as Invisalign clear aligners and innovative lingual braces. While Invisalign comprises clear aligners instead of brackets and wires, your Los Angeles orthodontist also provides lingual braces that are placed behind your teeth, completely concealing your orthodontic treatment.
