Concord, CA orthodontist Dr. Aurora Patino. DDS offers east bay braces and Invisalign in Concord, CA.

At the first visit with Concord, CA Orthodontist Dr. Aurora Patino, DDS we may take impressions to create diagnostic study models for further evaluation. Additional records such as photos of the patient's face and teeth, and X-rays, are used to develop a custom treatment plan for each patient. These records are also helpful in tracking the progress of treatment as the teeth move under orthodontic care. After the doctor has evaluated your records, we discuss your treatment with you in detail, including the cost for your particular case. The appointment at which you get your appliances (braces, expanders, etc.) usually takes from 30 to 60 minutes.

True orthodontics & dental specialty treatment emergencies are rare, but when they occur we are available to you. As a general rule, you should call our office when you experience severe pain or have a painful appliance problem you can't take care of yourself. We'll be able to schedule an appointment to resolve the problem. You might be surprised to learn that you may be able to solve many problems yourself temporarily until you can get to our office. If there is a loose piece that you can remove, put it in a plastic bag or envelope and bring it with you to your next appointment. If your east bay braces are poking you, put soft wax on the piece that's sticking out. If the wire has slid to one side, you can pull it back to the other side with needle-nosed pliers, replacing it in the tube on the back tooth.

Los pacientes con problemas ortodónticos se pueden beneficiar del tratamiento casi a cualquier edad.Los pacientes con problemas ortodónticos se pueden beneficiar del tratamiento casi a cualquier edad. El tiempo ideal para poner los frenos es entre las edades de los 10 a los 14 años, mientras la cabeza y la boca están creciendo todavía y los dientes son más fáciles de enderezar. Sin embargo, ya que cualquier ajuste en la apariencia de la cara puede ser traumático para un niño durante estos años sensitivos, los padres deben hablar del asunto con sus hijos antes de que se le pongan los frenos. Y los frenos no son sólo para niños. Más y más adultos están usando frenos también para corregir problemas menores y para mejorar sus sonrisas. El dentista generalmente recomienda los frenos para mejorar la apariencia "orofacial" física del paciente. Por medio del tratamiento ortodóntico, se corrigen los problemas como los dientes torcidos o apretujados, las sobremordidas o mordidas abiertas, la posición incorrecta de la mandíbula y trastornos de las articulaciones de la mandíbula.
