Healthy Mouth Tips

Whether you’re looking into braces for yourself or for a family member, weighing all of your options is a great place to start. After all, investing in a treatment should be something you feel comfortable and confident about!

Braces are a traditional, widely-used option for teeth straightening, and with so many advances in the orthodontics field, this treatment can actually be extremely effective and easy. You might be looking into teeth straightening because you want a straighter smile, but in fact the process helps to prevent serious oral hygiene issues as well.

Types of Braces

At Dr. Kenneth Cho Dentistry, we proudly offer several options for braces in Whittier CA, and we encourage our patients to consider each route to find the perfect option. Here’s how we can help you get a straighter smile:

Full braces:

If all or most of your teeth are affected by alignment issues, we typically recommend full braces for a complete treatment that will address the entire mouth. This process begins with your traditional braces treatment, and is typically followed by the use of retainers to hold the teeth in place during the recovery time for the treatment.

Partial braces:

If you only have alignment issues in one area of your mouth, or if only a few teeth are affected, partial braces may be the right choice for you. This process includes aligning a section of teeth, or sometimes making room for adult teeth if needed. If you don’t have many alignment problems, this is an easy, affordable solution.

Clear braces:

We are excited to offer great options for patients who don’t want to have the traditional look of braces, but don’t want to use some of the removable orthodontic options available. We offer a subtler choice by using ceramic or plastic brackets that are less visible, as well as tooth-colored wires. This option is just as effective as traditional braces, but simply less visible in the mouth!

If you have been wondering whether or not braces are the right treatment, considering your options may be the best way to decide the right time to get a straighter, healthier smile!

Great Office!

New patient for examination and cleaning: Arrived early 11:48 am for 12:00pm appointment, had paperwork filled out by 12:01, called to the back at 12:16. Had full x- rays, photographs -in my opinion unnecessary - and a panoramic x-ray - which was a bad image as the bottom half of the image was obstructed by the lead apron. The dentist exam included deep poking of gums to check for gum pockets, heavy hands noted toward the back teeth which resulted in bleeding - I brush and floss regularly and never bleed from flossing, however, dentist recommendation was “gum treatment, ” which is essentially a deep cleaning under local anesthesia in all 4 quadrants, this is not fully covered by the insurance, I was quoted $600 out of pocket. I declined stating “I will not pay that.” The regular cleaning was not performed as I declined the deep cleaning, no other option. Just felt like the deep cleaning should be reserved for people with symptomatic gum disease, including symptoms such as bleeding or red gums - both of which I do not experience. I’m definitely getting a second opinion and recommend always getting a second opinion if a dentist readily “recommends” a “gum treatment” on the very first visit, which may be unnecessary and lead to unwarranted invasive treatment with possible complications.

Great Dentist!

Great personal care

Dr. Kenneth Cho is a dentist that we trust. My family and I have been going to his office for 20+ years. He was the first dentist for both of my children (now collage age), and they still go to him. He can take care of every need for oral health including braces. No need to go from place to place, and everyone in the office is friendly and helpful.
