Unraveling the Mystery of “Orthodontics” 

Is “orthodontics” sending your brain into a tailspin? Not to worry – it’s simpler than it sounds! Consider orthodontics as a deeper layer of the dental world, handling all the unseen (or tucked-under-the-gums) magic with your teeth. It’s all about paving the way for your or your kiddos’ teeth to develop perfectly aligned and robust!

Now, why do young ones need such an early start? Imagine orthodontics stepping in right on time to shield your children from future complications with eating, speaking, or laughing. And it’s not solely about displaying an Instagram-worthy smile. It’s about boosting your child’s self-assuredness with their radiant grins. And here at Luv Braces, under the exceptional guidance of Dr. Tahbaz and Dr. Rezapour, we’re devoted to transforming those smile fantasies into a reality!

Unleashing the Superpowers of Our Orthodontic Experts

What exactly is an orthodontist? Visualize a dentist who’s leveled up, equipped with an arsenal of dental knowledge and then some. Consider an orthodontist as an uber-dentist who’s spent two to three years honing their skills solely in orthodontics – the art and science of aligning teeth and jaws. They’re the true champions of ensuring your or your little one’s smile is as healthy as it should be.

Now – enter board-certified orthodontists. Like Dr. Tahbaz and Dr. Rezapour! Being board-certified isn’t just any old feather in the proverbial cap. It signifies that our doctors have willingly gone through a strict examination process, proving their dedication to offering the best example of patient care. At Luv Braces, having board-certified orthodontists like Dr. Tahbaz and Dr. Rezapour means you’re embarking on a first-class journey to a flawless smile!

Luv-ly Options At Luv Braces

We’re super excited to share with you all the great ways we can help your smile shine. First up, our traditional metal braces. We’ve made a classic even better for comfort and effectiveness. They’re natural problem-solvers when it comes to sorting out tricky tooth issues.

Want to keep your treatment a little hush-hush? We’ve got you covered with Invisalign! These custom-made, clear aligners are masters of disguise, blending right in with your teeth. They’re easy to remove for chowing down, brushing up, or taking that all-important selfie.

And let’s remember one of our coolest options, InBrace hidden braces. These game-changers sit behind your teeth, out of sight, using some pretty impressive Smartwire technology. This personalized system gently nudges your teeth into perfect alignment while staying hidden. It’s a breeze with less frequent visits and no monthly adjustments.

Looking for a touch of elegance? Our clear or “ceramic” braces are just the ticket. Made to match your natural tooth color, they’re a chic and discreet way to straighten up any smile. So, whatever your orthodontic needs are, we have options to make you smile.

When To Bring Your Luv-Able Little Ones In

Determining the right time for your child’s first orthodontist visit can seem tricky. However, the American Association of Orthodontists (along with our doctors) recommends a check-up by age 7. Even though your child’s teeth might appear straight, there could be underlying issues with jaw growth and emerging teeth. So, it’s better to be safe than sorry!

Aside from age, watch for signs that your child may need an orthodontic check-up. These could include difficulty chewing or biting, thumb sucking beyond age 5, crowded or misplaced teeth, or jaws that pop or shift. At Luv Braces, we help guide your child’s teeth to a dazzling future.

How long will you or your kids be in treatment? We understand you’re eager to achieve that beautiful smile as soon as possible. At Luv Braces, we’re all about making your journey effective without compromising on the warm and friendly atmosphere we’re known for.
