Woodland Hills Orthodontics is a family-friendly, professional orthodontic practice specializing in braces, Invisalign and dentofacial orthopedics. Providing individualized care in a welcoming environment, we are dedicated to crafting beautiful smiles and improving lives with our transformative services.
We understand that a straighter smile doesn’t just boost your confidence, it improves your overall health by reducing the risk of TMJ issues and early enamel wear. Orthodontic treatment is recommended for anyone with a malocclusion, which is a misalignment of your teeth or bite. We treat patients of all ages, with the youngest starting as early as 7-8 years old. However, adults are also great candidates for dental braces. With recent advances in orthodontics, the process of having braces is more gentle and less painful than ever.
The first week after getting braces can be uncomfortable, as your teeth will be sore from the pressure of the tightening wires and brackets. However, over-the-counter ibuprofen can help to relieve your discomfort. After the initial period of discomfort, your teeth will start to shift into their correct position. Regular visits to the orthodontist are vital to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned.
