Orthodontic treatment offers numerous benefits for patients of all ages. Properly aligned teeth not only enhance your smile but also improve your ability to bite, chew, and speak effectively. They contribute to healthier teeth and gums while preventing potential physical health issues. A well-aligned smile boosts self-esteem, confidence, and self-image, regardless of age.

Orthodontic treatment is not limited to children; many adults seek orthodontic care to improve their smile and maintain dental health. Teeth can be adjusted at any age to achieve a healthy, straight, and beautiful smile.

For children, the American Association of Orthodontics recommends their first orthodontic visit around the age of seven. Early evaluation allows for timely intervention and potentially shorter treatment durations.

Signs that braces may be needed include crossbites, underbites, crowded teeth, spacing issues, and jaw misalignment.

While braces themselves don’t cause pain, you may experience slight discomfort in the first few days as your teeth and mouth adjust to the new braces.

Maintaining proper oral hygiene with braces is crucial. Brush your teeth around four to five times a day, ideally after each meal, to prevent food particles from getting stuck.

The duration of orthodontic treatment varies depending on individual factors. Compliance with treatment instructions, such as wearing rubber bands as directed, can expedite the process.

Regular visits to your general dentist are essential during orthodontic treatment to ensure your teeth stay clean and cavity-free. Schedule check-ups every six months.

Braces won’t hinder your participation in sports or playing musical instruments. However, consult with our doctor to determine if wearing a mouthguard during sports activities is advisable.
If you have any other questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Our Rancho Cucamonga team is here to provide you with personalized care and address all your orthodontic needs.

Success Stories

Orthodontist in Rancho Cucamonga

I absolutely love sweet tooth! Both of my boys have been coming here for a few years now. Every time we come it’s always an amazing experience. Dr Brown is the best. She always makes sure to listen to any concerns or questions that I have and takes her time to fully explain everything to me. Would definitely recommend Sweet Tooth for your family!

It’s hard to make going to the dentist memorable, but they can here… From Dr Brown to all the staff and office staff, they are incredible. Our kids ask specifically to go to the dentist because they like it there so much. Could not possibly recommend them more to anyone with kids!!
