Orthodontics in Woodland HillsWe all dream of having that perfect smile – bright, straight and without a single sign of discoloration or imperfection. While some people are lucky enough to be born with a gorgeous smile, achieving that perfect smile often requires orthodontic treatment. Whether you are looking for traditional braces or an alternative such as clear aligners, our Woodland Hills office offers a range of treatments that will give you the smile you desire.
The specialty of dentistry and dentofacial orthopedics concerned with the diagnosis, supervision, guidance and correction of malocclusions (abnormal alignment of the teeth and jaw). An orthodontist has completed two to three years of additional training after dental school to become an orthodontist.
An orthodontist will take a complete medical and dental history, conduct a visual examination of the teeth and supporting structures, make plaster models of the teeth, perform a wax bite registration, take extraoral and intraoral photographs and take panoramic and cephalometric radiographs. After evaluating the diagnostic records, an orthodontist will formulate a comprehensive treatment plan to correct the malocclusion.
Dr. Mojgan Shokri is proud to be a FASTBRACES provider, a revolutionary new system for speeding up the treatment of crooked teeth and creating beautiful smiles. She also uses Ortho-Tain preformed positioners for a wide variety of cases. She can address many different malocclusions, such as an anterior open bite — an occlusion where the lower front teeth overlap the upper teeth by an excessive amount — and a posterior crossbite, an occlusal problem in which the lower posterior teeth erupt inside or outside of the arch of the upper front teeth.
