Few people are gifted with the perfect smile from birth. In fact, most people need quite a bit of help along the way and rely heavily on general dentistry care as well as the specialized care of orthodontic dentistry. There are different types and purposes of braces and both your dentist and orthodontist will work closely together to provide you the dental plan best suited for your individual needs. Most experiences with braces begin with a recommendation from your licensed general dentistry provider to see specialized advice from an orthodontist. Your dentist has identified the need for preventative orthodontics care or believes your smile would benefit from some type of braces.

Your dentist will share your general dentistry records with your specialist, so he or she is well-informed about your dental history prior to your visit. Well before any braces or retainers are put on your teeth, your orthodontist will take additional x-rays and develop a plan to straighten your teeth. Often there is collaboration with your current general dentistry professional, so he or she can also monitor the progress and movement of your teeth during routine visits. While orthodontics work can be time-intensive and painful at times, the goal of a magnificent, healthy smile is well worth it.

There are so many options available to today’s orthodontic patients: how do you know which one is right for you? The type of orthodontic fixture that is best for a particular patient depends on a number of factors, such as the extent of treatment needed, the amount of time that patient wishes to dedicate to orthodontic treatment, and finances.

Fabulous Dentist. Dr. Sidhu has been working on my teeth for the past year, fixing, adding veneers and implants and now I can smile again. Great staff also.

I have horrible teeth and have been around the block and back with dentists, trying many offices around Los Angeles and San Diego. Dentists come a dime a dozen but I try to avoid doing the trial and error thing with my teeth!

Dr. Jessy was highly recommended by a friend of mine so I went to see him for a consultation. First impressions are everything for me - beginning with how my first phone call is handled, stepping into the office for the first time, the front office staff, etc. Everyone I encountered was professional and courteous. When I had my consult with Dr. Jessy he was personable and professional but most importantly, I could tell he was experienced and knowledgeable.

Over the past two weeks I had 11 teeth worked on and I was really surprised by how gentle the process was. I'm accustomed to experiencing significant pain at the dentist and this was not the case at all. I definitely have confidence in Dr. Jessy and his office and highly recommend them!
