For Children and Adults
Orthodontics for Children
It's best for your child to be seen by Dr. Bergh by age 7. Dr. Bergh can evaluate the amount of room for the permanent teeth, the growth of the jaws, and any functional problems that might exist.
Dr. Bergh has trained extensively in the field of orthodontics and dento-facial orthopedics, so you can be assured that your child is in the right hands for orthodontic treatment.
There are many advantages to early orthodontic treatment and evaluation.
By age 7, the first permanent molars and incisors are usually in, and by that time bite problems can be recognized and assessed for correction. Crossbites, crowding, and other problems can be seen.
When treatment is started early, Dr. Bergh can guide the growth of your child's jaw and guide incoming permanent teeth.
Benefits of early treatment can also correct the width of the upper and lower dental arches, gain space for permanent teeth, avoid the need for permanent tooth extractions, reduce likelihood of impacted permanent teeth, correct thumb-sucking, and eliminate abnormal swallowing or speech problems.
Early treatment will not only correct many major problems early, but can also simplify later treatment, too.
Call us today at (818) 242-1173 to schedule a complimentary evaluation for your child. We'll provide your child with a thorough examination, including the necessary diagnostic photographs and x-rays, all at no charge to you.
These records alone may cost you 100's of dollars in other offices, and you might even need to set up a second appointment or go to an x-ray lab before even finding out how much braces will cost.
Orthodontics for Adults
Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile. Two of every five of our patients in orthodontic treatment are over 21. And our practice caters to adults with our expertise in Invisalign and Concealed (or behind the teeth) braces.
We've even treated patients in their 80's and 90's.
In fact, one of our adult patients, Jim who is in his early 80's, said he felt like a kid again while having his orthodontic treatment done in our office.
The "fountain of youth?"
Well, we can't claim that, but we do know that our adult orthodontic patients are amazed by the changes they see in their smiles, the confidence they gain through orthodontic alignment, and the youthfullness of their brand new smile.
Give us a call today at (818) 242-1173 and see how our office can help you get your dream smile!
