What Our Torrance Orthodontist can Do for You
Providing a Better Smile for Our Patients
Have you ever wondered if you should get braces? Many people do and unfortunately decide not to just because they don't want the typical issues associated with them - such as having to worry about what you eat, the pain of rubber bands and the discomfort of having them tightened. A Torrance and South Bay orthodontist from James E. Eckhart, D.D.S., Inc. Orthodontics can offer you cutting edge treatments for even the most difficult bite problems or teeth straightening.
Don’t hesitate to call us at (310) 341-4001 to learn more about how we can help you.
It is time to find a solution that will work for you if you have:
- Crowded teeth
- Overlapping teeth
- Rotations or teeth that are turning
- Spaces between your teeth
- Protruding upper teeth where they are too far forward
- A deep overbite
- Problems with your bite in which your teeth do not align properly
Though we like to examine children of any age, we generally postpone treating with braces or Invisalign until the child's permanent teeth have grown in, about age 12. By postponing treatment, we are trying to reduce the total time the child will spend in braces, as well as the cost and number of visits that will be required. Now it might be necessary to treat a child earlier in order to help the permanent teeth get enough room to grow in or to correct some dangerous condition, but these solutions will be carefully evaluated and explained to you if this is the case with your child.
We enjoy treating adults of any age who want straighter teeth and a nicer smile. Our only requirement is that their teeth are clean and their cavities restored before beginning their orthodontic treatment. There are so many options available, including using clear or invisible braces, that almost any goal can be attained for adults who want to straighten their teeth.
Our Approach to Teeth Straightening Without the Pain
We are also an Invisalign Certified office and are happy to offer this form of "aligner" treatment to qualifying patients who would rather not wear braces and want to improve their smile. This modern solution allows you to straighten your teeth without the pain and look of regular braces, and the system is almost undetectable! We have helped more than 2,000 patients to achieve the result they wanted through Invisalign, and we can help you find out more about this modern treatment.
