Traditional braces, often simply referred to as 'braces,' are orthodontic devices used to correct misaligned teeth or jaws, ensuring an optimal bite and radiant smile. At Laguna Dental and Orthodontics, Dr. Fariba Bigdeli utilizes braces made from the highest quality materials to move your teeth gently and efficiently into their ideal positions.

When Are Traditional Braces Recommended?

Traditional braces are versatile and can treat a wide variety of orthodontic issues, including:

  • Overbites and underbites.
  • Crossbites.
  • Crowded or spaced teeth.
  • Misaligned jaws.
  • Other dental irregularities that impact function and aesthetics.

The Braces Journey with Dr. Bigdeli

After a thorough consultation and examination, Dr. Bigdeli maps out a treatment plan tailored to your needs. Brackets are attached to each tooth, connected by archwires and occasionally rubber bands. Over time, the gentle pressure exerted by the braces shifts the teeth to their desired locations. Regular appointments are essential to adjust the braces and monitor progress.


  • Effective treatment of various dental irregularities.
  • Durable and reliable method of teeth alignment.
  • Customizable with colored bands for a touch of fun and individuality.
  • Proven track record of successful outcomes over decades.
  • Can treat complex orthodontic issues.

How long will I need to wear traditional braces?

Treatment duration varies depending on the complexity of the case. On average, most patients wear braces for 18-24 months.

Are traditional braces painful?

While getting braces might cause some discomfort initially or after adjustments, this is temporary. Any discomfort can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

How often will I need adjustments?

Dr. Bigdeli typically recommends adjustments every 4-6 weeks to ensure steady progress.

Can adults benefit from traditional braces?

What Are Clear Aligners?

Clear Aligners are a cutting-edge orthodontic solution designed to straighten teeth without the visible wires and brackets of traditional braces. Made from transparent medical-grade plastic, these removable trays are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth. Under the expertise of Dr. Fariba Bigdeli at Laguna Dental and Orthodontics, you'll embark on a journey to a straighter smile, combining the power of technology with aesthetic subtlety.

Why Choose Clear Aligners?

Increasingly popular for their discrete nature and comfort, Clear Aligners offer:

  • Virtually invisible treatment, making them an excellent choice for adults and image-conscious individuals.
  • Convenience with their removability for eating, brushing, and flossing.
  • Less irritation, as there are no metal brackets or wires.
  • Predictable treatment with digital planning.

The Process of Getting Clear Aligners with Dr. Bigdeli

Your journey starts with a consultation where Dr. Bigdeli assesses your orthodontic needs. Digital scans create a precise 3D model of your teeth, which is then used to customize your set of aligners. Patients wear each set of trays for about two weeks, moving to the next set as the teeth gradually shift into position.


  • Discreet treatment allowing you to straighten teeth without anyone noticing.
  • Enhanced comfort with no sharp edges or brackets.
  • Flexibility in daily life with the ability to remove aligners during meals or special occasions.
  • Shorter average treatment time compared to traditional braces.
How often should I wear my clear aligners?

For optimal results, it's recommended to wear the aligners for 20-22 hours a day, removing them only for eating, brushing, and flossing.

Do clear aligners hurt?

While there might be a slight discomfort when starting a new set of aligners, it typically subsides within a few days as the teeth adjust.

How do I clean my aligners?

Aligners should be cleaned daily with a soft brush and cool water. Avoid using hot water as it can warp the plastic.

Are clear aligners suitable for everyone?

While they are an excellent option for many, a consultation with Dr. Fariba Bigdeli will determine if they are the right fit for your specific needs.

Invisalign is a groundbreaking orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth using a series of custom-made, clear, removable aligners. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign offers a nearly invisible method to correct various orthodontic issues. At Laguna Dental and Orthodontics, Dr. Fariba Bigdeli employs advanced techniques to bring you the smile you've always desired.

They can be easily removed during eating, brushing, or special occasions, offering unmatched convenience compared to conventional braces.

The Invisalign Treatment Journey with Dr. Bigdeli

The journey begins with a detailed consultation, where Dr. Bigdeli assesses the complexity of your dental alignment. Using digital impressions, a series of aligners are custom-made for your treatment plan. As you switch sets of aligners every 1-2 weeks, your teeth gradually move into their desired positions.


  • Nearly invisible, offering a discreet treatment option.
  • Removable, facilitating easy cleaning and no food restrictions.
  • Comfortable fit with no metal brackets or wires.
  • Less frequent dental visits as compared to traditional braces.
  • Predictable treatment with 3D treatment planning.
How long does Invisalign treatment typically take?

Treatment duration varies based on individual needs, but on average, most cases are completed within 12 to 18 months.

Can I eat with my Invisalign aligners on?

It's recommended to remove the aligners while eating or drinking anything other than water to prevent staining or potential damage.

How often should I wear my Invisalign aligners?

For optimal results, you should wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours a day, removing them only for eating, brushing, and flossing.

How do I care for my aligners?

Clean them daily using a soft toothbrush and water, and avoid using colored or scented soaps as they might stain or leave a taste.

Why Retainers?

After undergoing orthodontic treatment, it's essential to ensure that your teeth don't drift back to their original positions. Retainers are custom-made devices, often made of clear plastic or metal wires, designed to hold teeth in place post-treatment. At Laguna Dental and Orthodontics, Dr. Fariba Bigdeli provides top-quality retainers, ensuring your investment in orthodontics lasts a lifetime.

Types of Retainers Offered

Retainers come in various types:

  • Hawley Retainers: These are the traditional retainers made of metal wires and acrylic.
  • Clear Plastic Retainers: Similar to Invisalign trays, these retainers are virtually invisible.
  • Fixed Retainers: A thin wire bonded to the back of your teeth, ensuring they remain in position without any visible apparatus.

Dr. Bigdeli will guide you on the best choice depending on your needs and the nature of your orthodontic treatment.

Care & Usage Guidelines (H3)

To maximize the lifespan of your retainer and maintain oral health, proper care is essential. Regular cleaning, avoiding extreme temperatures, and proper storage can ensure your retainer stays in optimal condition. Dr. Bigdeli provides detailed guidance on retainer maintenance, ensuring you get the best from your orthodontic results.


  • Ensures lasting results from orthodontic treatments.
  • Prevents natural shifting of teeth with age.
  • Customized for individual comfort and fit.
  • Choices between visible and invisible options.
  • Reduces the risk of needing orthodontic re-treatment.
How often do I need to wear my retainer?

Can I eat with my retainer on?

For removable retainers, it's advisable to take them off while eating to avoid damage.

How do I clean my retainer?

Gently brush it with a toothbrush and lukewarm water. Avoid hot water as it can warp the retainer. Dr. Bigdeli may also recommend specific cleaning solutions.
