Early & Adult Treatment

Early Treatment

When is the best time to begin orthodontics?
Though an orthodontist can enhance a smile at any age, there is an optimal time period to begin treatment. Beginning treatment at this time ensures the greatest result and the least amount of time and expense. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that the initial orthodontic evaluation should occur at the first sign of orthodontic problems or no later than age 7. At this early age, orthodontic treatment may not be necessary, but vigilant examination can anticipate the most advantageous time to begin treatment.

treatment_patients

What are the benefits of early orthodontic evaluation?
Early evaluation provides both timely detection of problems and greater opportunity for more effective treatment. Prudent intervention guides growth and development, preventing serious problems later. When orthodontic intervention is not necessary, an orthodontist can carefully monitor growth and development and begin treatment when it is ideal.

Why is age 7 considered the optimal time for screening?
By the age of 7, the first adult molars erupt, establishing the back bite. During this time, an orthodontist can evaluate front-to-back and side-to-side tooth relationships. For example, the presence of erupting incisors can indicate possible overbite, open bite, crowding or gummy smiles. Timely screening increases the chances for an incredible smile.

Adult Treatment

Braces aren’t just for kids anymore. Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. We offer a variety of treatments that are designed for different age groups – including adults. A new smile can begin today.

Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain.

treatment_patients

Good news! The new techniques and appliances we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time and may allow you to choose from several options. Your options may include metal braces, translucent braces or transparent aligners that can be worn at night to improve mild cases of misaligned teeth.

During the initial examination, we will be able to determine the best possible treatment for your individual needs. During this initial examination, we can outline the treatment plan, time of treatment expected and the approximate cost.A large percentage of our patients are adults, and they agree that it’s never too late to improve their greatest asset – their smile.

Types of Braces

treatment_patients

Metal braces are among the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable, and more attractive.These are the metal brackets and wires that most people picture when they hear the word “braces.”

However, modern brackets are smaller and less noticeable than the notorious “metal-mouth” braces than many adults remember. Plus, new heat-activated archwires use your body heat to help teeth move more quickly and less painfully than in the past. Least expensive type; colored bands give kids a chance to express themselves

 

treatment_patients

Ceramic braces are made of translucent material. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawback to the ceramic brackets is that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.Ceramic braces are the same size and shape as metal braces, except that they have tooth-colored or clear brackets that blend in to teeth. Some even use tooth-colored wires to be even less noticeable.

Clear ceramic braces are made of ceramic alloys. Because of their transparency, they also have a great following, especially among adults who are to correct their buckteeth but without shouting to the world, they’re being corrected every time they smile.

 

treatment_patients

The Damon System bracket is self-ligating, so it eliminates the need for elastic ties to keep the wire in. Without a tie, the braces stay clean and friction is reduced allowing your treatment to progress more efficiently and with less discomfort along the way. Damon System braces are available with both a metal & an aesthetic option.

Traditional braces on the left are tied in with elastics, which cause friction and pressure, making treatment slower and less comfortable. Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably.

treatment_patientsInvisalign
No matter what stage you’re at in life, you’ll appreciate how our cutting-edge approach to treatment has minimal interference in how you live, but has a significant positive impact on how you look and feel about yourself.The Invisalign© System is a series of clear overlay templates called aligners that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. This system is available to adult patients and some teenagers with certain orthodontic bit problems. Because they are removable, patient compliance is extremely important with aligners.

Invisalign is a terrific option for working professionals or patients seeking a discrete solution to improve their smile, however it is not ideal for every case. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign© system.

Our entire team is delighted to work with you!
We know you will see our commitment to
excellence in all that we do

First Visit

 

We are always excited about meeting new patients during their first visit to our office. Your initial appointment will consist of a thorough examination and a discussion of potential treatment options. This important 30-minute visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs. We know your time is valuable, so to expedite treatment, we may also reserve time following the exam for diagnostic records. The records include X-rays, photos and impressions for study models and are necessary for developing the appropriate treatment plan. This additional appointment will last approximately 30 minutes.During the initial examination for each patient, we will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. We encourage you to ask questions as well.

  • Is this a condition that orthodontics can address?
  • Is treatment needed now or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption
    or other factors have occurred?
  • What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?
  • Do any permanent teeth need to be removed?
  • How long will treatment take?
  • How much will it cost?
  • What are my payment options?

We will then schedule a consultation visit to discuss treatment options, time frames and financial arrangements. We insist that our patients leave the office with a clear understanding of their specific needs, what the treatment will consist of and how long it will take. Also, we will answer any additional questions.Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your first visit:

  • Any panoramic X-ray taken by your dentist within the past six months.
  • If you have orthodontic insurance, bring your insurance card.
  • By providing this information at the first visit, we will be able to give you an estimate of your costs.

Life with Braces

Brushing
Use a toothbrush with soft bristles and a small strip of fluoride toothpaste, unless the child is under the age of 3. If a child is younger than age 3, parents should clean their child’s teeth with water and a soft-bristled toothbrush. After age 3, parents should supervise brushing. Use no more than a pea-sized amount of toothpaste and make sure children do not swallow excess toothpaste.

treatment_patients

When you brush your teeth, move the brush in small circular motions to reach food particles that may be under your gum line. Hold the toothbrush at an angle and brush slowly and carefully, covering all areas between teeth and the surface of each tooth. It will take you several minutes to thoroughly brush your teeth. Brush up on the lower teeth, down on the upper teeth and the outside, inside and chewing surface of all of your front and back teeth. Brush your tongue and the roof of your mouth before you rinse. Brush your teeth four times daily to avoid the accumulation of food particles and plaque:

  • In the morning after breakfast
  • After lunch or right after school
  • After dinner
  • At bedtime

Flossing
Pull a small length of floss from the dispenser. Wrap the ends of the floss tightly around your middle fingers. Guide the floss between all teeth to the gum line, pulling out any food particles or plaque. Unwrap clean floss from around your fingers as you go, so that you have used the floss from beginning to end when you finish. Floss behind all of your back teeth.Floss at night to make sure your teeth are squeaky clean before you go to bed. When you first begin flossing, your gums may bleed a little. If the bleeding does not go away after the first few times, let a staff member know at your next appointment.

treatment_patients

Foods to Avoid
For most situations, common sense will tell you what to avoid. Hard foods, sticky foods and foods high in sugar must be avoided. Hard foods can break or damage wires and brackets. Sticky foods can get caught between brackets and wires. Minimize sugary foods; they cause tooth decay and related problems. Nail biting, pencil and pen chewing and chewing on foreign objects should be avoided.

Although sturdy, stable and advanced, braces are orthodontic appliances that you need to treat with care. That means eating foods that are gentle on the brackets and wires that hold your braces together and in place. Generally, avoid all foods that are sticky, hard, or chewy. Soft foods are most recommended for those who wear braces because they are simply easier on your mouth hardware.

After Hours Info

There are very few true orthodontic emergencies. Most problems can be remedied at home. However, if you have a situation that you cannot resolve on your own, call us as soon as possible, so we can fit you in for a repair appointment. In the meantime, this feature can help resolve minor problems you may encounter during your orthodontic treatment

treatment_patients

Sore Teeth
If your teeth are sore after a visit you may take acetaminophen or other non-asprin pain relievers while you adjust to your new braces. A warm wash cloth, heating pad or warm salt water rinses may reduce the soreness in your jaws.

Wire Irritation
If your braces cause irritation try moving the wire away from the irritated area with a cotton swab or eraser. If the wire will not move, try covering the end of it with a small piece of cotton or a small amount of wax. If the wire is painful, you can cut it with nail clippers or scissors that have been washed and sterilized in alcohol.

treatment_patients

Loose Bracket
If the main wire or a bracket comes loose, first call our office to see if the bracket needs to be re-fitted. It you have a situation wher eyou must cut the wire or slide a bracket off the wire, you may use fingernail clippers that have been washed an sterilized in alcohol. Please call our office on the next business day to schedule a repair appointment.

Lost Separator
If a separater comes out call our office to see if it needs to be replaced. Some patients may lose a separator during treatment, which is common.

FAQS

What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a specialty within dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental and facial irregularities.

What is an Orthodontist?

An orthodontist is a specialist within field of dentistry. They attend 2-3 years of advanced training after dental school, focusing on tooth movement and facial development.

What are the benefits of orthodontic treatment?

A beautiful smile
Better functionality of your bite
Improved self confidence
Reduced wearing on your teeth
Guidance of permanent teeth into ideal position
Improved health of teeth and gums
Easier to clean your teeth by flossing & brushing

What are signs that braces may be needed?

Excessive spaces in between teeth, particularly in the front
Excessive crowding of teeth, causing teeth to rotate
Upper teeth protruding excessively over lower teeth
Lower teeth protruding past the upper teeth
Upper teeth covering the majority of lower teeth when biting
Center of upper teeth do not align with center of lower teeth
Difficulty chewing foods
Excessive or uneven tooth wear

At what age should orthodontic treatment begin?

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that every child first visit an orthodontist by age seven. Many orthodontic problems can be solved more easily at a younger age, before jaw growth slows, to avoid the need for more complicated procedures. That being said, treatment can be sought out at any age, and there are many attractive treatment options available to adults today that ensure an efficient, aesthetic, and comfortable orthodontic experience.

How long does orthodontic treatment take?

Treatment duration is dependent on the severity of the case and the compliance of the patient. A patient who maintains good oral hygiene, keeps appointments, and follows instructions throughout treatment will complete their treatment on or ahead of schedule. The average treatment time is typically one to two years.

Is orthodontic treatment painful?

Most of our patients tell us that their teeth are sore for the first few days. Simple, over-the-counter pain medication usually alleviates this. In addition, we provide soft wax and silicone to place on any rough areas of your braces to minimize mouth irritations. Warm, salty water is also a good home remedy for oral discomfort.

How often will appointments be?

We average 6-8 weeks between visits, though it depends on the case and treatment plan. In the beginning of treatment, some patients need to be seen more frequently, while others have long (10-12 weeks) intervals between appointments. As we get closer to finishing your treatment, appointments become more frequent. When we factor all visits together, we average about 6 weeks between appointments.

Dr. Hom is a true professional who produces high quality work. He does braces for children when their baby teeth are gone (most of the case) and always goes extra miles for his patients. He has great supporting staff and pleasant office environment. His work worth every penny!All my three children are under Dr. Hom's care. First child finished her adjustment in high school and is in college second year now. Her dentist said Dr. Hom did an excellent job and it's totally a textbook case. People can't compliment enough how pretty her teeth look. Dr. Hom still sees her once a year.My second child is a sophomore in high school and only has minor adjustment, almost done, looks beautiful!My third child has the most teeth problems: cavities, over and under and cross bites, and over-sized teeth for her small mouth. Dr. Hom fixed her overbite that was hurting her gum when she was 8 years old. That's when I realized Dr. Hom has excellent skills to make the teeth and jar go certain way. Dr. Hom has been monitoring her growth (and fall) of teeth since then. He wants to make sure she doesn't develop "masculine jar". You see Dr. Hom has a great sense of beauty. Now she is 12 years old with all the permanent teeth in place. She can't wait to get her real braces.

Professional and friendly, Dr. Hom runs a great orthodontic practice. At the age of 40, my dentist recommended I get braces to correct a bite issue. Dr. Hom corrected my bite and I no longer wake up with headaches from clenching my teeth at night. As an extra bonus, the braces also straightened my bottom teeth that had shifted as an adult. I now have the perfect smile! Not only is Dr. Hom and his staff great with adults, but I was always amazed how they talked to their younger patients, making them feel comfortable and important. Dr. Hom and his staff made having braces as painless and easy as possible. I highly recommend him!

I have four kids receiving services from Dr. Hom. Three of my children are in the retainer phase with one more to go through braces. All of my children have had a great experience. The appointments run on time and the office and orthodontic staff are excellent to work with. Dr. Hom is diligent and pleasant. The office visits are fun for all as the office is generally full of South Bay families. The office is more of a fun hangs out than a dental office. Highest recommendation from a mom that spends a lot of time at appointments!

We were referred to Dr. Hom's office more than 10 years ago by a friend. Both of my sons have had braces & we have been very happy with the results.The staff is AMAZING!!! We are always greeted with smiles & are asked how we are doing with genuine concern & curiosity. The ladies are always helpful & will listen to your concerns. I appreciate that Dr. Hom sees every patient prior to leaving the office. He engages with every patient. Dr. Hom is generous with his payment plans with no interest. I really love that even 8 years after my oldest son has had his braces off he still does not charge for routine yearly checks on his retainers. It has been a pleasure to go to his office & refer him to friends.

As a 62-year old female I was a little apprehensive about starting the teeth straightening process. However, I feel I made one of the best decisions in my life when I scheduled my consult with Dr. Hom. Eighteen months later I have perfect teeth and a great smile. Dr. Hom is fabulous. He's meticulous in his work, very professional and easy to talk to. His staff is also very professional but very pleasant at the same time. The office is lovely and I NEVER had to wait. Payment can be made over time. I highly recommend Dr. Hom!!

t can be difficult to be an informed consumer when it comes to orthodontia. However, when three dentists (one in Santa Monica and two in the South Bay) and one endodontist said Dr. Hom would be their "first choice" for our son's orthodontist, the choice was easy. We are delighted with the decision.Dr. Hom's office does not overbook. We never languished in the waiting room. More importantly, Dr. Hom always had enough time to give my son's case the time it deserved.Dr. Hom's work is always "neat." Our dentist says she's had to send some patients back to their orthodontists because messy cement work was interfering with tooth health. She's never had that problem with Dr. Hom's patients.Finally, the results were glorious. My son started with a massive overbite and buck teeth. He now has a beautiful smile. His confidence is improved and we've set him up for better dental health as an adult. What more could you want?

If you are looking for beautifully aligned teeth, Dr. Hom and his team are the place to go. My son had a particularly difficult case, as he had not lost some of his baby teeth on time, which yielded in overcrowding and overlapping of his teeth. On our first visit Dr. Hom assured us that he would be able to correct the issue and make my son have a beautiful smile. He was true to his word because he did an incredible job. My son's teeth are absolutely perfect. The office is run very efficiently, and appointment reminders are confirmed via text. Overall great experience and I give Dr. Hom and his team the highest recommendation.

Living in the beach cities, there were several orthodontists to choose from. After meeting with four, my kids (and I) all agreed to go with Dr. Hom...whom after asking around, had done several of my friends kids teeth...Dr. Hom is thorough and always explains what needs to be done. Always professional, the best is how he interacts with my kids...both teenagers, they never complain of having to go see him.The front office staff is friendly; the office is clean with a great ocean breeze. Appointments never seem to run late as the scheduling seems well done.Back office staff is knowledgeable and personable as well.As my son just had his braces off 2 weeks ago, and my daughter’s will be coming off soon, I will definitely miss our visits with Dr. Hom (again, he is great with the kids). We recommend him without hesitation.

Dr. Hom did an excellent job on my son's teeth. I am extremely picky and questioned him every step along the way. Dr. Hom was patient and answered all of my questions. My son's teeth look amazing. Dr. Hom is very detail oriented and makes sure he takes the time to get it right. He does not cut corners or treat the teeth too quickly. He makes sure it is right and will stay right. My daughter just got her braces on. I can't wait to see her straight teeth too!!!

If only we had met Dr Hom sooner. We took our daughter to another orthodontist in the region and began the process of adjusting her teeth. Over time we began to doubt the service he was providing because of certain additional things he wanted to do, which we later found out were completely unnecessary. We discovered Dr Hom and shifted to his office in the middle of the overall process, and couldn't be more pleased with the experience and the results. After our initial meeting with him, we knew for certain that he was the one we should have connected with from the beginning. Dr Hom had to correct a bad decision that the previous orthodontist made, and he fixed the condition properly. If you spend 20 minutes with him and have him explain what is, and isn't, necessary, you will come to the same conclusion. His manner is relaxed, yet confident and reassuring. Our daughter has just completed the process and we are delighted with the results. Our son may need the same treatment in the future, and there is no doubt who we will trust to do the work competently, and with excellent results.

Dr Hom is an orthodontic genius. I've been taking my twins to him because one had more extensive needs and he is known in the community as a true scientist when it comes to difficult cases. The office runs efficiently with check-ups available during and after school hours, even with coordinating appointments for two at a time. My first kid just got her braces off today and I don't think I've ever seen her so happy! All technologies are used to insure a precision bite, as well as the most beautiful smile. His approximate time of treatment was 24-26 months as long as we followed his instructions. Her braces were off in 2 years and 19 days. Thank you Dr. Hom! The investment in her smile and future dental health was absolutely priceless.

My daughter just got her braces off. Her teeth look great. (People call it the Dr Hom smile!) Dr Hom and his staff are very professional, caring and do an overall great job. Dr Hom gave us a treatment plan and quote and everything went along as planned. You hardly ever have to wait in the waiting room, they see you right away. They also get you in and out of the office as quick as possible. If you have an issue, they fit you in and address it right away. This is a large, bright, clean office with an excellent staff. I highly recommend them.

We are so happy with our experience with Dr Hom and his team. Our 3 sons are all current patients of his practice. His staff is incredibly helpful, friendly & made our boys feel very comfortable. They each took the time to teach my boys how to brush & floss with braces....during each visit.From the beginning, Dr Hom took the necessary x-rays & explained each of our boys treatment plans. He gave us a transparent, reasonable & simple monthly payment plan for each boy with no extra "surprises."Dr. Hom's communication with the boys regarding their treatment plans during each visit was age appropriate and clear. They really appreciated how he treated each of them.My oldest has completed his treatment plan and we are all so thrilled with the results!

Dr. Barney Hom has taken care of both of our children. He was highly recommended to us by our dentist, who had used him for her own and for her daughters’ orthodontic procedures. We are very satisfied with the work that he has done with our kids. We had been told that he won’t advocate unnecessary procedures, and that he is careful with the optimal timing of braces. We found these things to be true. His office staff is pleasant and efficient, and both the waiting area and work areas are clean, bright, and comfortable. We were almost always able to schedule appointments after school hours, which was very helpful. Most important, both of our kids have great-looking and healthy teeth.

We were referred to Dr. Hom by our kids’ dentist several years ago. So far, two of my three children have had to have braces. Dr. Hom and his staff are extremely professional, kind and friendly. Even though its a process our kids would have rather not gone through, we can’t imagine an orthodontist any better than Dr. Hom. The cost and time frame were exactly as he quoted us up front and the results….straight, shiny teeth and smiles all around!! We will always recommend Dr. Hom to anyone looking for an orthodontist. It just doesn’t get any better!!!

I was referred to Dr. Hom by my kid’s dentist, who recommended him highly above other orthodontists. I have had two children get braces through Dr. Hom’s office and have been extremely pleased with the results and the 2+ year process to get them straightened. His staff is very personable and professional and they keep you on a regular visit schedule, and remind you of them. Because they liked the people, my kids did not ever argue about going there, which was a big plus in my book. The vast majority of the time, my kids were seen immediately and Dr. Hom explained clearly to both myself and my child what was going on and what they needed to do, both visually and verbally. Occasionally, he was short with his explanation, but slowed down and was responsive when questioned and provided more detail. Further, I found the prices fair and appreciated that they allowed us to pay for them over time without interest. I know other parents who have used him and have been equally satisfied. You will be very happy if you choose Dr. Hom!

We promise to use state-of-the-art technology to provide you with the best in orthodontic care, and we want you to be amazed with your beautiful smile.
