Non-Extraction Treatment in Northridge
Protecting Each Patient’s Full, Brilliant Smile
In the past, extracting permanent teeth to resolve crowding and maintain alignment has been standard operating procedure in orthodontic care. Though it is a generally straightforward approach, it is our absolute last resort here at Holistic Orthodontics. This is because we prioritize helping our patients achieve the healthiest, most attractive smile possible while maintaining all of their permanent teeth. We do this by addressing the underlying structure of the mouth and jaw to give teeth the room they need. Our Northridge non-extraction treatment may also include the use of appliances to help redirect oral posture and other behaviors that could be contributing to misalignment.
Advanced Technology for Enhanced Effectiveness
Some of the most exciting options we are able to provide for our patients have come about thanks to various advances in orthodontic technology. By implementing modern technology in the brackets themselves, such as ultra-low friction and self-ligating brackets, and using body heat activated wires, we are able to virtually eliminate the need to extract permanent teeth in children, teens and most adults. We feel that by avoiding extractions as much as possible, we are able to provide our patients not only with full broad smiles, but also keep all permanent teeth in the mouth.
Just a few of these remarkable technologies include:
“He is such a nice guy and his staff are all very pleasant.”
“I was in the middle of treatment when I moved across the country to CA. Dr. Berrios took me in and improved my course of treatment.”
“They always explained everything and ensured I knew what was going on.”
