Common Orthodontic Issues We Treat in Laguna Niguel, Orange County Area
At Laguna Niguel Orthodontics, you’ll find highest standards of care and attention to detail from the beginning and throughout your orthodontic care with us. Our team of professional specialists can treat many common orthodontic issues, such as overbite, underbite, teeth crowding and spacing, TMJ-TMD, sleep apnea and more.
Overbite, Underbite & Other Teeth and Jaw Alignment Issues
Many teeth alignment issues can cause jaw pain, discomfort and dissatisfaction with the appearance of one's smile as well as damage to the health and longevity of the teeth and gums. Our orthodontic specialist creates a treatment plan to address any issues such as overbite, underbite, missing teeth space and shifting of adjacent ones, crowded or overly spaced teeth. These treatment plans may involve special orthodontic appliances, braces, Invisalign and for severe cases tooth extraction or jaw surgery may be necessary.
Some patients experience misalignment of their temporomandibular joint, which connects the lower jawbone to the skull. Issues with this joint can cause chronic facial and neck pain and symptoms known as TMJ-TMD. Our specialist can diagnose TMJ issues and create customized treatment plans to help resolve this issue and relieve associated pain and discomfort.
Sleep apnea refers to interrupted breathing and not getting enough Oxygen to the brain during sleep. It can cause choking noises, heavy snoring and disrupted sleep, resulting in fatigue and health issues. At Laguna Niguel Orthodontics, we diagnose the signs and symptoms of sleep apnea and offer some treatment options or refer some patients to a sleep apnea specialist.
