Orthodontist Westwood CA
To help you get straight teeth and a healthy mouth, here are some tips from Dr. Maurice Firouz for knowing if and when you need an orthodontist in Westwood CA.
Misalignment of teeth can come in many shapes and forms including gaping teeth, misaligned jaws, overcrowding, and more. Other than your teeth not being “ready for their closeup,” these issues could also be causing more serious health problems. Misaligned teeth affect your overall oral hygiene and health by making regular brushing and flossing more difficult. They also may be causing tooth decay or gum disease.
Many times, painful orthodontic issues can be fixed by your orthodontist by using traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners, a retainer, or some other orthodontic technique. If you are an orthodontic patient, or if you are a candidate for treatment, and you are experiencing pain of any degree, Dr. Maurice Firouz says that you should see an orthodontist as soon as possible so the problem can be addressed and your pain can be relieved.
Schedule an Assessment
Say you just want to check out how healthy your teeth and mouth are. It is never too soon or too late to visit Dr. Maurice Firouz and assess how your teeth are growing in or have grown in, if orthodontics is something to consider now or in the future, or if any other serious orthodontic problems might benefit from an early intervention.
