Orthodontics is a specialized area of dentistry that diagnoses, corrects and prevents dental irregularities. Orthodontics most commonly addresses an open bite, overbite, underbite, spacing issues and protruding teeth. Types of orthodontic treatment include metal braces, ceramic braces and lingual braces. Invisalign is another treatment option available at our practice. At Devonshire Dental, we strive to provide the leading orthodontic treatment options to help our patients achieve a well-aligned and healthy smile. We create innovative orthodontic treatment plans for our patients to target areas of concern and effectively improve smiles.

Benefits Of Orthodontics
One of the benefits of our smile makeover in Mission Hills is that both you and your orthodontist can work together to plan for all your cosmetic dentistry procedures. This means all your cosmetic needs will be performed in the right order, which eliminates the risk of repeat treatments down the road.
Most patients who undergo a smile makeover encounter several benefits.
- A perfectly straight smile
- A functional set of teeth
- Easier maintenance
- Reduced risk of tooth decay and gum disease
- Improved speech
- Healthier teeth and gums
- Confidence boost
What To Expect
During the first visit, the orthodontist will perform an initial examination of the patient’s mouth, and assess their dental history to personalize a unique treatment plan. All treatment plans and timelines will vary based on the patient’s dental concerns and needs. At Devonshire Dental, we take a conservative approach to all of our orthodontic services. After the initial consultation, the orthodontist will schedule a procedure date for the braces to be placed. This process can take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes. Regular appointments will be scheduled to maintain and adjust the braces. Once the treatment plan has been completed, the braces will be removed and the aftercare will begin. A retainer should be worn to maintain a perfect smile. The orthodontist will give specific instructions on retainer wear time.
