Irvine Orthodontics Treatment for Children
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends you take your kids to the orthodontist by age 7. We’re not planning on installing braces or removing teeth right then and there, but an early start with a two-phase orthodontic treatment can spot developing problems and correct them with ease as your kids’ teeth and jaws are still growing.
Orthodontics for Teenagers
In most cases, teenagers start their treatment around this time because they want to ensure their permanent teeth are well aligned, and their parents know this is the best time to do so. Teenagers’ bones are still growing during their early teens, so any adjustments made by braces or clear aligners seed faster and require less force and time. Sure enough, this might change from one patient to another, but your teenage years are the best time to start your orthodontic journey.
Fortunately, there is no age limit to start your orthodontic treatment. Adults can start their treatment whenever they so desire; just make sure you don’t have any lingering effects from gum disease or tooth decay that might complicate your orthodontic treatment. In any case, you shouldn’t hold back and come for a consultation with your orthodontist to determine what you need to do to start your journey towards a beautiful and healthy smile.
How Does Orthodontic Treatment in Irvine Work?
Funny you should ask. The main principle behind orthodontics is to safely and gradually move your teeth and jaws until we reach an ideal relationship between all your orofacial structures that ensures proper function and oral health.
That’s a lot of fancy words to say that we push your teeth to a new position to correct bad bites and help your dental health situation.
To that end, skilled Irvine orthodontics, such as Dr. Hong, use appliances that safely apply force over your teeth in precise directions to shift your teeth and achieve your dream smile. Traditional metal braces work wonders, and newer methods, such as Invisalign clear aligner trays, solve most cases of orthodontic problems with the added bonus of being nearly invisible to the naked eye.

Always willing to spend time answering your questions or helping you with maintaining your teeth. They even remove your wire and put it back on for you when you schedule dental cleanings. Thank you so much!”
“My brother and I both got our braces off at Hong Orthodontics about a year ago. We are really happy with my results, and our teeth still look good. My parents feel like they made the right decision in choosing Dr. Hong. He is a very nice person, talented at what he does, and is fair with his pricing. His office is very clean, and all his staff are also very nice, especially the ladies at the front desk. We never had to wait more than five minutes to be seen by the doctor. I would recommend Hong Orthodontics to anyone who may be on the fence deciding what orthodontic office to choose.”
“Dr. Hong has done an incredible job with both my son and daughter. He was very detailed and showed a lot of patience when explaining any new procedures that he was doing. My kids have great smiles now and I was very happy with the price and the final outcome once the braces came off. I would highly recommend Dr. Hong to anyone who is looking for Orthodontist work.”
