Early Orthodontics

After suffering with braces for five long years, Dr. Greg Friedman became passionate about finding an easier, shorter, and more comfortable way to straighten children's teeth. In certain cases, we use retainers when teeth are growing in to expand the mouth, making room for all of the teeth to fit instead of extracting teeth at a later age. By developing the dental arch with retainers, we can reduce the time braces have to be worn by up to two years, in many cases!

Early orthodontic intervention for our children could be key to a healthy ideal bite for them later in life. If you have questions about your child's orthodontic issues, call today for your complimentary consultation.

Traditional Braces

As a member of the American Academy of Functional Orthodontics, Dr. Friedman is proud to offer reliable traditional braces. This powerful treatment can handle even the most severe orthodontic cases in most situations, gradually and safely realigning teeth and bite positions. Dr. Friedman will place a series of brackets on your teeth and connect them with an archwire, which will use precise pressure to move your pearly whites into their ideal positions over time. Traditional orthodontic treatment has advanced by leaps and bounds over the decades, and Dr. Friedman will ensure your treatment goes as smoothly, quickly, and comfortably as possible.

Invisalign® Clear Braces

For teens and adults alike, Invisalign is becoming a very popular and conservative alternative to traditional braces. With Invisalign clear braces, patients can straighten their teeth inconspicuously and in a short timeframe. There are no conventional wires and brackets, but instead patients will go through a series of clear, removable aligners. This gives patients the freedom to brush and floss easily, eat whatever they like, and carry on with their daily lives uninterrupted.

Invisalign clear braces fit over the teeth to gradually align them into proper formation. They can be removed for special events but should be worn for 20-22 hours a day in order to keep treatment on track. Invisalign clear braces can help with teeth that are overcrowded, too widely spaced, crossbites, overbites, and underbites. 

ClearCorrect Clear Braces

Most people don't want to flaunt metal smiles. Models, actors, waiters, or anyone self-conscious about their looks might prefer to have their dental corrective devices hidden. Additionally, most adults would rather not have metal braces showing at work or social events. That's where ClearCorrect can help.

As an Invisalign alternative, ClearCorrect clear braces can restore beauty, form, and function to misaligned teeth in a way that is more comfortable and less embarrassing than regular metal braces. Many people in Scripps Ranch already wear ClearCorrect invisible braces, but you probably never noticed! That's the beauty of the method – long-lasting results that cause less discomfort and awkwardness in the long run.
