Braces are orthodontic devices used to correct misaligned teeth and jaws, creating a healthier and more attractive smile. At Foothill Family Dental Group, our skilled dentists, Dr. Mariam and Dr. Yara, offer a variety of braces options tailored to meet the individual needs of each patient. Braces provide an effective solution for a wide range of orthodontic issues, from simple to complex. Whether you're an adult seeking a smile makeover or a parent considering braces for your child, our team is committed to delivering exceptional results through personalized care and attention.

What Issues Do Braces Address?

Braces are incredibly versatile, addressing numerous dental issues that can affect both oral health and aesthetics. They can correct overcrowded teeth, gaps, misaligned bites such as overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites, as well as jaw misalignments. By bringing teeth and jaws into proper alignment, braces not only enhance the appearance of your smile but also improve chewing functionality, ease of cleaning, and overall oral health.

What Are the Benefits?

You don’t just get to enjoy a straighter smile when you opt for braces in Glendora, CA. You also benefit from the following: 

  • Correctly aligned teeth are easier to clean and less prone to cavities and gum disease, contributing to improved oral health. 
  • A well-aligned bite also reduces stress on the jaw muscles and joints, potentially alleviating symptoms of TMJ disorders. 
  • From an aesthetic perspective, braces can dramatically transform your appearance, boosting self-confidence and social interactions. 
  • With advancements in orthodontic technology, patients have more options than ever, including traditional metal braces, ceramic braces, and lingual braces, allowing for a more personalized and comfortable treatment experience.

We have developed a meticulous process to ensure the best results for patients seeking orthodontic care:

  • Initial Consultation: Your first visit with Dr. Mariam or Dr. Yara will include a thorough examination of your teeth and jaws, discussion of your treatment goals, and a personalized treatment plan.
  • Preparation: Some patients may require preliminary dental work, such as fillings or extractions, to prepare their mouth for braces.
  • Braces Placement: During your placement appointment, the chosen braces will be securely attached to your teeth, marking the beginning of your orthodontic treatment.
  • Regular Adjustments: You'll visit our office periodically for adjustments to the braces, allowing for gradual and controlled movement of your teeth into their desired positions.

Removal and Retention: Once your treatment is complete, the braces will be removed, and you'll be fitted with a retainer to maintain your new smile's alignment.

Proper care involves regular brushing and flossing, avoiding hard and sticky foods that can damage the braces, and attending all scheduled appointments for adjustments.
