Seeing a Pediatric Dentist

Primary teeth or baby teeth are 20 teeth that start to become replaced by adult teeth at an early age of 6. Children as old as 2 years old, as soon as they develop their first lower teeth, are recommended to visit a pediatric dentist. A pediatric dentist is a dentist that has specialized in treating children. Pediatric dentists usually study two ore three more years after finishing dental school.

Your pediatric dentist at Dreamland Dental and Orthodontics will evaluate if your child needs treatment. The health of primary dentition is very important in development of adult teeth. For example, losing a primary tooth before age of 10 can cause shift in the other dentition. In these situations, the adult tooth can be blocked out inside of the bone by unwanted early movement of primary teeth. The adult tooth cannot grow naturally. Orthodontic treatment is needed to move the adult tooth to the surface of the mouth.

In addition, thumb sucking and nail biting during developmental age can create major dental and skeletal problems.

Children’s dentistry can prevent many major dental and skeletal issues.


Have you been dreaming of getting a straighter smile but don’t want to go through conventional orthodontic treatment with metal wires? Invisalign might be exactly what you need.

The Invisalign system uses an innovative approach to straighten your teeth using a series of virtually invisible, custom-made removable aligners to gradually move your teeth to the right position, instead of the fixed metal wires used with traditional braces.

How the Invisalign System Works

Depending on the severity of your teeth misalignment and the desired result, your teeth will be gently moved into place by the custom aligners over a period of 9 to 24 months. Aligners are clear plastic trays that apply gentle pressure to crooked teeth, causing them to turn or move slowly.

The aligners should be changed every two weeks during the course of the treatment. Your dental appointments are brief, and the treatment is less uncomfortable than other orthodontic solutions. Considering that Invisalign treatment is also virtually invisible, it is usually a top choice of treatment for teens, adults, and professionals looking for a straighter smile.

Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns may be recommended when a tooth becomes:

  • weak
  • severely decayed
  • fractured
  • has a large failed restoration
  • needs a root canal treatment

A crown can provide the necessary strength to withstand chewing forces. A crown can be designed to have the same shape and color as the original tooth. There are many different types of crowns including porcelain fused to metal, all porcelain, Emax, or Zirconia crowns that could be fabricated depending on the location of the tooth involved, the esthetic involvement of the tooth, and the forces of occlusion of the patient.

Are you looking for an endodontist near Bellflower, CA? You’ve come to the right place.

When faced with an infected or inflamed tooth pulp, you’ll generally have two options. You can either have your tooth fully extracted and replaced with an implant, or undergo an endodontic procedure with our Bellflower endodontists. A full extraction is usually recommended when the tooth is beyond repair. When a tooth is fixable, a root canal restores the present tooth by removing the pulp and filling the space with a biocompatible material called gutta-percha.

Thanks to our advanced technology and medicine, most patients report feeling comfortable during endodontic procedures. As with any medical procedure, there may be sensitivity for a few days following the treatment. It’s important to note that in many cases, these treatments are performed to relieve tooth pain once and for all.

Crowded teeth is a common problem when your jaw doesn’t have enough room to accommodate all your fully-grown teeth properly. It is a form of malocclusion that is characterized by bunched up, twisted, and overlapped teeth, with some of them pushed to the front or the back.

Since crowded teeth are typically severely twisted, they make it difficult to brush and floss properly. This, in turn, causes harmful bacteria, plaque, and calculus to build up, increasing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and associated health problems. A consultation with our dentists at Dreamland Dental & Orthodontists in Bellflower can help to reveal whether you’re a good candidate for Invisalign treatment to straighten your teeth and improve your smile.

Frequently Asked Questions About Braces In Bellflower

I have lost a tooth, should I get an implant or braces?

Before getting an implant, its best to also consult with an orthodontist to diagnose if the space can be closed using braces or Invisalign treatment. Your dentist and orthodontist will take comprehensive measures to discuss all options and to diagnose and recommend the best treatment plan for your situation based on your occlusion.

Am I too old to get braces?

There is no age limit for orthodontic treatment. Everyone deserves to have their dream smile. However, in cases of severe periodontal disease or decay, orthodontic treatment may not be the best option and treating the periodontal disease and decay would take priority over receiving orthodontic treatment. Your orthodontist and dentist will work hand in hand to make sure your mouth is cavity free and in great periodontal health.

How long do I have to be in braces for?

Depending on your condition and the difficulty of the case, your orthodontist will diagnose how many months is required to complete the proposed treatment plan. Orthodontic treatment can range anywhere between 6 to 24 months depending on the complexity of the occlusion and the alignment of the teeth. However, on patients that have had phase I or early orthodontic treatment will usually need less time to achieve optimal results.

Does it hurt to have braces?

There is some discomfort after the wire has been placed for the first time or if the wire has been tightened (changing ties). The discomfort usually starts 24 hours after activation and it lasts for 2-3 days. In severe cases, it is recommended to take over the counter pain medication.

An overbite is identified by the extent to which your upper teeth protrude and overlap your lower teeth. Ideally, your upper teeth should overlap the lower ones by 1-2 mm. But if the gap is 4 to 10 mm, it is considered a malocclusion that requires treatment.

Correcting an overbite in Bellflower

Overbites are a hereditary problem that occurs naturally as your teeth erupt. However, some habits such as thumb sucking and tongue thrusting can contribute to the malocclusion because the thumb pushes the front upper teeth and bone forward. Bad bites can be corrected by a dental specialist known as an orthodontist.

Some of the likely overbite treatments include:

  • Invisalign clear aligners – to slowly and discreetly move the teeth and jaw to their correct position
  • Braces – to slowly move the teeth and jaw to the correct position
  • Teeth removal for children and tweens to create room for the adult teeth to grow in straight
  • Oral Surgery – to correct severe jaw problems in adults

Although malocclusion can be corrected at any age, it is recommended that bad bite problems be corrected as early as possible to reduce the risk of severe physical implications of having an untreated overbite. Children should visit an orthodontist by the age of 7 years for early intervention.

If you’re looking to correct a deep overbite or vertical overbite in Bellflower, Dreamland Dental & Orthodontics can help you create a custom treatment for your case of malocclusion.
