Orthodontics Q & A

Does Dr. Shokri offer traditional braces?

Yes. Dr. Shokri offers a full suite of orthodontic services that includes expanders, Ortho-Tain®, traditional braces, and Invisalign® braces. Her services are geared towards early treatment of children ages five or older and for adult patients who would like to improve their smile. She uses a 3D imaging system to fully understand the location of her patients’ teeth and special software to determine the path the teeth need to travel to reach their correct position. These images also reveal if any teeth are impacted or need to be removed for orthodontic treatment to be successful.

What are the advantages of Invisalign®?

Invisalign® braces have many advantages including being nearly invisible while on the teeth. Another great advantage of this treatment is that the aligners are easy to remove briefly for eating and daily hygiene. Their construction is of hard plastic that is molded in such a way that it snaps over the upper or lower sets of teeth. Another benefit is that Invisalign® helps you improve your oral health by making it easier to clean, brush, and floss your teeth when compared to traditional braces. When it comes time to brush, floss, and care for your mouth, you can just snap the tray out and proceed. This process helps you prevent cavities, gum disease, and bad breath. The aligners do need to be worn for 22-23 hours a day for full effectiveness.

Early Treatment

Young Children Smiling After Orthodontic Procedure

When teeth are crooked, crowded or misaligned, orthodontic treatment is used to achieve an occlusion, or perfect bite. Through various orthodontic appliances, pressure is continuously applied to move teeth into the correct position.

Since so few of us actually have perfectly aligned smiles, just about everyone can benefit from an orthodontic exam. It is highly recommended that your children receive an orthodontic consultation by the age of 7.

Adult Treatment

Lady With Braces Smiling

Your smile is the first thing people see. And as we all know, first impressions are crucial. So if you’ve ever wished for a straighter smile braces might be for you.

But braces don’t just improve the look of your teeth; they also keep your teeth healthy. When your teeth are straight, they are easier to keep clean. Flossing, brushing, and mouthwash are much more effective when your teeth aren’t overly crowded.

At our office, we have different options to fit each patient - come in for a consultation and together we’ll decide what’s right for you.

It’s never too late to straighten your smile. Adults and teenagers alike can get the smile they’ve always wanted. Call us today and improve your face value!

Expanders

Upper Jaw Expander

An upper jaw expander is a molded plastic and wire device fixed to the roof of the mouth. A key is used to widen the expander on a nightly basis until treatment is complete, which usually takes about one year. Once the desired width is achieved, the expander is replaced with an orthodontic retainer.

Dr Shokri has been my dentist for 17 years. When I first started seeing her she had an office in Brentwood. Even though it now takes me sometimes an hour to drive to see her, I cannot imagine seeing another dentist. She is caring & professional & has a gentle touch. Highly recommended!!!!

Just had a crown and two cavities filled. Both Dr. Shokri and Sami are extremely professional and friendly. My two hour appointment went flawless. I highly recommend Dr. Shokri for any dental procedure you need as she is one of the best dentist I ever had worked on my teeth.

- Bruce H. Los Angeles

I'm no stranger to a dentist and by far this dentist is patient, thorough, and knows how to do her job while keeping the patient( me) calm. With the music, videos, and her relaxed demeanor, I'm not afraid to go to the dentist! This is my first Yelp review and I joined just to make this post.

- Linda C. Los Angeles

I called day of to make a last minute appt and was seen later that day. I have had fever blisters since I was a teen and saw they do a rare laser treatment to speed healing. Dr. Shokri was polite and answered all my questions. She used three laser treatments and the healing and pain reduction was immediate. Will definitely come back.

- Erin R. Los Angeles
