I used to have braces in the past but of course I didn’t wear my retainers like I was supposed to after the treatment and my teeth shifted. I came to Orthodontics LA to get Invisalign treatment and I couldn’t be happier with the doctors and the staff. Their care has been far better then the last place I got braces. They were professional and understanding, and were able to clearly explain my treatment options. I couldn’t be happier with the results. Thank you Dr. Mel and Dr. Artin!

Types of Services at Orthodontics LA

We offer a full range of orthodontic treatments at our Glendale location. Every patient is different, so we customize each treatment to what you need.

  • Traditional Metal Braces: The most popular type of braces are traditional braces.  Made of high-grade stainless steel, traditional braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. After the metal brackets are glued onto your teeth, a metal wire is inserted that will be secured by the brackets. At each subsequent appointment, your braces will be adjusted to further align your teeth. You also have the option of adding colored rubber bands or elastic ligatures to secure the archwire to the brackets.
  • Damon Braces: Damon braces are different from traditional braces because they use a self-ligating mechanism. Instead of using regular archwires, their memory wires slowly slide and adjust to the brackets. This leads to a more natural progression of the aligning the teeth because the wires are tightening little by little as opposed to regular braces, which are manually adjusted. Rather than having traditional rubber bands to hold the brackets together, Damon braces use a sliding technique to hold the wire in place. Because of this, patients can move their mouths more freely and quickly.
  • Clear Damon Braces: Like regular Damon Braces, Damon Clear Braces function with the same self-ligating, frictionless system. Their only difference is that they are clear and virtually invisible! They use the same tie-less braces technology and on average, Damon Clear Braces are still the faster braces solution.
  • Lingual Braces: For a visually appealing orthodontic treatment, lingual braces are nearly impossible to detect. They are just like traditional braces, but the brackets and wires are attached to the back of the teeth.
  • Invisalign: Invisalign is a clear aligner system that provides tooth movement by gradually shifting teeth with each set of trays. It is virtually invisible and it does not have metal attachments and wires, so brushing, flossing, and eating are easy.
  • Surgical Orthodontics: Our orthodontist can correct bite, jaw, or skeletal problems with surgical treatment if needed.
  • Two-Phase Treatment: Many orthodontic problems can be corrected early on when the bones are still developing and the permanent teeth have not yet set in. Two-phase treatment is a method of realigning teeth with braces that requires two separate phases The purpose behind two-phase treatment is to combine both tooth straightening and the realignment of the facial and skeletal structure. This treatment is meant to create an aesthetic result that lasts a lifetime.

During your initial visit with our orthodontic team, we will help you determine which type of braces would best meet your personal needs and lifestyle. For more information schedule a consultation, call us today.

“Staff is Awesome !!

Doctor Artin explained everything very well. He educated me very well on my treatment. I am super excited to get started.

The office staff is very welcoming, I am delighted to start coming here.”

– Leti B.

“Dr Artin is a rarity in orthodontic care. I cannot begin to express my appreciation for this man. I am a former Dr. Yu patient and Dr. Artin has always treated me with care and and given me one on one care throughout my treatment. Recently, he removed my braces and followed up with me several times to check on the progress on my teeth post removal. Finding a honest orthodontist is hard, this is why I recommend Dr. Artin to all of my friends and family.”

– MR Z.

“Dr. Artin and the entire team at Orthodontics LA are a rarity. I was originally a Dr. Yu patient and from the very start Dr. Artin made me feel welcome no matter what concerns I had about my treatment. He is a  patient and accommodating individual. Recently I had my braces removed and Dr. Artin gave me several checkups to make sure my progress held. I know how hard it is to find a good orthodontist and that is why I strongly recommend him to all of my friends and family.”
