Manhattan Beach Braces

Traditional metal braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. They’re made out of metal or ceramic brackets that are affixed to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics.

These brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply the gentle pressure that will gradually move the teeth into the positions we want them to be in as long as you have regular adjustments with our doctors.

Braces in Manhattan Beach are an excellent choice for correcting complex tooth issues. Since they can sometimes work faster at aligning teeth and closing gaps than other treatments, your overall treatment time may be slightly reduced.

Braces don’t require some of the more complex technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, meaning Manhattan Beach braces are a cost-effective orthodontic option.

Manhattan Beach Invisalign

Invisalign is incredibly popular with patients and orthodontists in Manhattan Beach and is the top alternative to traditional braces. Instead of brackets and bands, the Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth.

Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and customized to fit snugly over your teeth. To keep your teeth moving in the direction you want, you’ll need to switch your invisible trays out for the next one in the series every one to two weeks as directed by Dr. Hom.

The Invisalign system can only work if you follow the guidelines from Dr. Hom. You’ll wear your clear aligners 20 to 22 hours per day throughout treatment. If you neglect to wear the aligners as directed, it can impede the results and add time to your treatment.

Invisalign is at its most efficient when correcting many of the most common orthodontic issues. For some complex cases, Invisalign may not be a good option. A free consultation with Dr. Hom at Hom Orthodontics in Manhattan Beach will allow us to determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
