Braces

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.

Dr. Patel and Tara were wonderful! They are both kind, took the time to explain everything they were doing, and very thorough. Thank you!

This review is from Bruce Allen. Went in for a teeth cleaning and it was done rapidly and with fabulous attention to detail. I was also advised of important issues to address with my (old) teeth. Highly recommended!

Everyone at Solana Beach Smiles is amazing. They always go above and beyond for their patients. Especially Anita, Marlene, Tia and of course Dr. Jesse! Needed help with scheduling because we have a newborn and a crazy schedule, and Anita bent over backwards to accommodate our family.
