Orthodontics for Kids
Drs. Stepanek and our team at Twin Teeth Orthodontics will treat your children like our own by giving them the best possible orthodontic care.
The American Association of Orthodontists and Drs. Stepanek recommend that your child should get their first orthodontic evaluation at the first sign of orthodontic problems, or no later than age seven.
Your child's teeth have developed enough by this age to allow our expert doctors at Twin Teeth Orthodontics to spot subtle problems with emerging teeth and jaw growth before your child loses all of their baby teeth.
Your check-up at Twin Teeth Orthodontics may reveal that your child's bite is fine, and braces for kids aren't necessary at this time.
Or, Drs. Stepanek may identify a developing problem but recommend monitoring your child's growth and development, for the time being. After that, we can begin treatment at the appropriate time if our doctors still think it’s appropriate for your child.
Early treatment at our office in Playa Vista may prevent or intercept more serious problems from developing and may make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated.
In some cases, Drs. Stepanek can achieve results that may not be possible once your child’s face and jaws have finished growing.
Orthodontics for Teens
For teens around the Los Angeles area, the most common time for orthodontic treatment at Twin Teeth Orthodontics is during adolescence, between the ages of 11-16.
Experienced orthodontists like Drs. Stepanek easily recognize issues with spacing, crowding, bite, and alignment in this age range.
Also, your teen’s bone and jaw structure are formed enough to allow orthodontic treatment to begin.
At Twin Teeth Orthodontics, your teen can choose between Invisalign clear aligners, metal braces, or clear ceramic braces. Each of these choices offers unique benefits while transforming your teen’s smile.
Orthodontics for Adults
Your smile is the first thing other people around Los Angeles notice about you. How do you feel about yours?
You’re never too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment with Drs. Stepanek, and that’s why we offer orthodontics for adults at Twin Teeth Orthodontics.
Believe it or not, your teeth don’t stop moving after your teen years! Teeth that seemed straight and aligned in youth could have shifted later in life. This can lead to jaw pain, trouble brushing, or a smile you’re unhappy with.
If you leave misaligned teeth untreated, you may end up with other dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. You may also notice abnormal wear on the surface of your teeth or that it’s difficult to chew normally.
Drs. Stepanek can address these issues and more through orthodontic treatment, giving you the healthy smile you’ve always dreamed about. We can correct orthodontic problems at Twin Teeth Orthodontics just as easily for adults as for children.
Drs. Stepanek use orthodontic forces to move teeth in the same way for both adults and children, and you’ll notice the benefits of your treatment in no time.
Why Should You Consider Orthodontic Treatment?
Straight Teeth Are Healthy
After Drs. Stepanek align your teeth correctly, it’s easier for you to clean them through regular flossing and brushing. This helps prevent other oral issues, including some problems that can affect your overall health.
A Straight Smile Builds Confidence
Successful orthodontic treatment at Twin Teeth Orthodontics can help boost your self-confidence, create a better quality of life, and allow you to smile freely for maybe the first time.
Untreated Oral Issues Can Get Worse
If you refuse or delay orthodontic treatment when Dr. Stepanek recommend it, you may run into long-term health issues that may wind up costing you more in the end.
At Twin Teeth Orthodontics, our team understands that teens, kids, and adults all have different dental needs, so we give each age group personal care.
We’ll work diligently for you to make sure you receive the best treatment at our inviting office in Playa Vista.
