Leading Los Angeles Dentist Gives Straight Talk

AS a Los Angeles dentist, I have a special perspective on the importance of having a healthy smile, including one that doesn’t have gaps or crowded and crooked teeth, or an overbite or underbite. All kinds of jobs in Hollywood, where Wilshire Smile Studio is located, put a premium on having employees with a nice smile, even when their business has nothing to do with entertainment. And Hollywood smiles now set the standard everywhere.

In fact, a recent survey of U.S. adults showed that 92% of those who had “orthodontic treatment” (the technical term for straightening teeth) would recommend it to others because of the improved self-confidence it gave them, in both their careers and their personal lives.

And this treatment no longer has to be a big inconvenience or an embarrassment because traditional wire braces are unattractive and require dietary restrictions and special cleaning procedures. Wilshire Smile Studio can now provide nearly transparent Invisalign aligners that snap on and off easily, like wearing a very light, customized mouth guard whenever you want. Self-conscious teens particularly appreciate the advantages.

Initially, our Los Angeles dentist and staff specialist team make a 3D image of your teeth and give you the first sets of aligners, which you change every two weeks to gently nudge the teeth towards your optimum smile. You only need to come in every 6-8 weeks for a checkup and the next sets. The whole process takes 9-15 months, far shorter than with braces.

What is often overlooked when considering whether to straighten teeth is the vital health benefits. When teeth are not properly aligned, they are traps for tiny food particles at the gum line which attract bacteria. This results in gum inflammation that you don’t even feel. If you don’t have perfect brushing and flossing habits and don’t have a dental hygienist clean your teeth several times a year, your gums can detach from the teeth, which you might lose. The infection can also spread into the jaw, which might require expensive bone grafts. Gum infection also significantly raises the risk of everything from heart disease and diabetes to cancer and pregnancy difficulties.
