Having straight teeth and a perfect bite is very important in living a healthy and enjoyable life.

Orthodontic treatment benefits include:
- Improved general health of the teeth and gums
- Healthy chewing and speech functions
- Increased self-image and confidence

How Orthodontic Treatment Works
Orthodontic treatment, whether with traditional metal braces, clear braces, or Invisalign®, is a slow process due to the fact that the teeth need to be moved while the bone around them is remodeled. Moving teeth too quickly or without proper planning can result in damage to the teeth and/or surrounding bone structure.
Dr. Majd’s extensive education and experience has given her the knowledge necessary to move teeth efficiently and safely with maximum patient comfort.
Length of Treatment
Your treatment time depends on the amount of tooth movement necessary, your biology and cooperation with treatment. The average length of orthodontic treatment is around 24 to 36 months, though it can range from six months to several years depending on the case and patient cooperation.
At Laguna Niguel Orthodontics, we utilize the latest techniques and state of the art appliances to achieve the ideal results in the shortest possible time. Dr. Majd also likes to have additional options such as Acceledent, Propel, Wilcodontics (surgically assisted orthodontics) as well as Damon and other self ligating braces available for patients seeking the shortest treatment time without compromising results.
Some advertisements such as "six month smiles" or "fast braces" are not based on facts and research, simply marketing hypes and we strongly advise against them specially if the provider is a general dentist not an orthodontist.
After your initial appointments and getting braces or Invisalign aligners, you’ll need to come in every four to six weeks for check-up appointments and adjustments by Dr. Majd.
