The Orthodontist for Encino

Dr. Bita is proud to be the orthodontist for Encino, which it deserves. There’s more to being an orthodontist than just making sure that everyone’s smile looks fantastic (even though that is an incredibly critical part of being an orthodontist). An orthodontist is part of a community, someone that people trust to make sure that they look and feel great. In this blog, we’ll go over some of Dr. Bita’s background as well as various services that she offers to the community at large.

Dr. Bita: Orthodontist in Encino

While Dr. Bita is an orthodontist who primarily deals with the Encino area, it’s important to point out that her services aren’t exclusive to Encino. Southern California is a large area that’s made up of many small communities that are smack dab next to each other. So, that means that Dr. Bita serves Encino as well as Toluca Lake, Winnetka, Woodland Hills, and many other surrounding areas. The services we offer here are unique to this practice, so we want to offer them to as many people in the southern California area as possible. You don’t have to be part of Encino to get the kinds of orthodontist services that Dr. Bita provides.

Board Certified Orthodontist

It seems like all of the professionals that we count on in our daily lives are board certified. Your doctor, your area’s school superintendent, maybe the CEO or president of your company – each of these figures and so many others have been certified by a board. Sometimes, this board is investors but usually, it’s a governing board that ensures a professional has passed a certain aptitude test. These boards exist so as to provide peace of mind to anyone who uses a person’s services. Certification from a board says: “this person is qualified to do what they say they can do.” What most people don’t realize is that not all orthodontists are board certified. In fact, a minority of them are.  

Beyond Board Certification

To be clear, this doesn’t mean that a majority of orthodontists don’t know what they’re doing, or something. Many of them do their jobs in a fine, standard manner. However, it does mean that they don’t have the extra training and expertise that a board-certified orthodontist like Dr. Bita does. It means that they can’t perform as many services to the same level of excellence as Dr. Bita can. There are very few board-certified orthodontists in a given area. There’s a good reason for that: it’s quite difficult to achieve board certification.

What Board Certification Means

The steps to reach board certification are steep indeed. First, someone like Dr. Bita has to pass all the same kinds of tests that a dentist does. That means going to undergrad, passing the “Dental Acceptance Test” and then graduating from an accredited dental school. After passing the national and state licensing exams, Dr. Bita had to get into an accredited orthodontic program. Once there, she had to work and study to get an orthodontic residency. After two to three years of that, she was an orthodontist. Frankly, this feels like so much work we’re almost tired simply typing it out in this blog.

To that point of expertise, that’s where most orthodontists stop. At that point, Dr. Bita was an orthodontist. She could’ve just quit and go into practice. After all, that’s what a majority of orthodontists do. But, she wasn’t done. She wanted to get that board certification. So, she completed the ABO written exam. Then, it was time for the case submission at the clinical exam. Finally, peer review of critical outcomes by the ABO (American Board of Orthodontics) itself. Then and only then did she become a board-certified orthodontist. Of course, she also has to go through this last part of the process every decade. It’s easy to see why so few orthodontists go to all that much trouble.

Of course, since she does that, she can offer you and your family the best orthodontic services around. When you need braces, whether for you as an adult or your developing children, she can provide you with the best kinds of braces. The most advanced technology in braces has made them more comfortable and invisible than ever. No one needs to know that you’re wearing braces – but they will notice how great your teeth look. For a smile that you want to share with the world, Dr. Bita is here.

Those are just a few of the services that we offer here. One important function that we offer is that we work with you on the payment plan. Everyone who wants to have a great smile can get one. So, if you’ve been putting off an operation or even a checkup, give us a call at (818) 629-1981 or head to our site.

Lingual Braces in Winnetka

There are so many more options for braces available today than ever before. The stereotype in our culture of braces, the uncomfortable metal contraption that seems barely hung in a teenager’s mouth while causing them all sorts of pain, is a long forgotten relic of the past. Those days are gone forever. Today, braces technology is racing forward, continually creating better braces products so that anyone can have perfectly aligned teeth for a megawatt smile. In this blog, we’ll go over some of our lingual braces in Winnetka options. We’ll also cover how Dr. Bita goes about determining what kinds of braces are best for your needs.

Our Lingual Braces in Winnetka

Over the years, we’ve found that braces tend to make people a bit self-conscious. That’s perfectly understandable. It can feel awkward if someone notices you have braces in. Of course, it’s important to point out that there’s nothing wrong with braces. They can be incredibly helpful in making you look better and feel better about yourself. That being said, we absolutely understand if you want braces that most people won’t notice. One of the more popular new advancements in braces technology is what is called “lingual braces.” That doesn’t mean that the braces make you speak better or anything like that. It does mean that people almost assuredly won’t see these braces when you have them in.

How Lingual Braces Work

One of the main reasons that the stereotype of braces is what it is (lots of visible, jangly metal) is that older forms of braces were in the front of the mouth. Of course, people noticed these braces: they were on the front teeth; the parts that face the world. Every time someone opens their mouth, the front of their mouth is visible and noticeable. That’s part of what made people so self-conscious about these braces: it was difficult to communicate without people noticing them. So, that’s what lingual braces can do: hide. They don’t get placed on the front of the teeth. On the contrary, they’re placed on the back of the teeth.

Placement Matters

When you think about this, it makes sense. After all, you can talk to someone for hours, stare at their mouth seemingly forever, and you sure won’t see the back of their teeth. That’s where these lingual teeth go. Instead of connecting to your teeth from the front, they do so from the back – think of them like an easel, essentially. They don’t interfere with anything in the front of your teeth. As far as anyone knows who sees your smile or sees you talk, there are no braces in your mouth whatsoever. That’s part of the power of the lingual braces.

What Lingual Braces Can Do

Another major benefit that lingual braces provide is that they make it a little bit easier to adapt to braces. After all, no matter what kind of braces you or your kids have, it’s not always easy to get used to something in your mouth. We understand that which is part of the reason that we end up helping folks with lingual braces as much as we do. They’ve shown to be especially useful for kids who are getting into wind instruments: horns, trumpets, band instruments like that. They interfere with that process so much less than normal braces do. Of course, these braces aren’t just for kids. So many adults use these braces as well. It’s easy to go to work functions, out on dates and the like at any age with braces that only you know are in your mouth.

Lingual braces can’t be found everywhere. Not every orthodontist offers these lingual braces. That’s because it takes extra training and education to know how to put these braces on correctly. Of course, that’s where Dr. Bita’s resume comes in. One of the few genuinely certified board certified orthodontists in the area, she is preeminently qualified to put these or any other kind of braces in for you or your family. There are many other options for braces than just lingual, of course. Invisalign has advanced by leaps and bounds; now that’s one of the more popular options for making your smile as great as it can be.

When you contact Dr. Bita, we’ll get back to you and set up a time for a free consultation. Then, she’ll go over your history as well as what you’re looking for. From there, she’ll make the right determination for what sort of braces or other help you might need. For some, that may be the lingual braces. For others, it might Invisalign, or some other kind of service. The important thing to keep in mind is that there is a way to get your best smile at any age. To start the process, head to our site or give us a call at (818) 629-1981.

Winnetka Braces Help

When something goes wrong with your braces, it can be a real problem. That doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s an emergency, or that someone’s in danger, but rather you or someone you love is suffering some pain and want a fix now. We understand that. We’re always glad to take your calls and walk you through the process, but often times problems occur away from office hours. We want to use this blog to solve some problems you might have when we aren’t there to take your call. So, we’ve laid out some common Winnetka braces issues and how to fix them quickly.

Our Winnetka Braces Help

It’s important to remember: before trying some of these, give us a call if it’s during office hours. Should you or someone you live with suffer a broken appliance or even one that’s just loose, call us promptly. This is the kind of phone call that we’ll always take if we’re in the office. We want you to be our client for a long period of time, and we take the responsibility of making you smile look as great as it can be very serious. So, when you have an issue, and it’s on Monday from 9 to 4, Tuesday 8 to 5, Wednesday/Thursday from 9 to 6 or Friday 7 to 4, give us a call. We’ll help you through the process as best we can.

 

A Phone Call Away

Calling us when someone has a problem with their braces or other appliance is the best way to go. It’s the quickest way that we can help. Just running over to us unannounced actually takes longer. We have so many patients with scheduled appointments that coming over here can slow things down. When you call, though, we can get right on your call and give you the help that you need. If you do call us after hours, feel free to leave a message. We’ll get right back to you as soon as we get in the next day. Obviously, that won’t help with discomfort during the night, hence this blog entry.

Too Loose Brackets

A loose bracket can be a real problem. It leads to a whole host of pain. That amount of discomfort can lessen even the fun of a great holiday get together. So, we definitely recommend that you call us when a bracket gets too loose. For many of our patients, that means it’s time to get the bracket re-fitted. Scheduling a repair appointment is typically the best option here. Of course, that doesn’t help you at the moment. Should it become necessary, you can cut the wire and slide the bracket off the wire. However, before you do that, make sure that whatever you use to do it has been washed and sterilized in alcohol. Many of our patients have found success making this cut with scissors or nail clippers.

Irritation from the Wire

Wire irritation can put a damper on any night or weekend. Moving the wire away from the irritated area is typically the first course of action (and probably one you would’ve tried before you read this blog). We recommend doing so with a cotton swab or eraser. That way, the move is gentler and has the least likelihood of causing further irritation. Should the wire itself cause a great deal of pain, do what the above paragraph said: cut it with clippers or scissors. Of course, only do that after the scissors or clippers have been sterilized in alcohol and thoroughly cleansed. Should the wire be obstinately unmoving, you may want to think about covering its end. You may be able to do that with a tiny amount of wax or a super small piece of cotton.

We’ve come back in on many mornings to find messages asking us what to do about sore teeth from having new braces in. Should this happen, know that it’s a common problem. It doesn’t mean that anything is wrong; it just means that your body is adjusting to the new braces. Typically, we recommend non-aspirin painkillers. That means acetaminophen and the like. You may not even have to take anything for this. Sometimes, all it takes is a warm salt water rinse to get rid of the pain. Other options are to use a warm washcloth or even a small heating pad.

Of course, a majority of our patients have no problems with any kind of braces. We just don’t want you to have to go through the holidays with discomfort. Should you suffer any of the above problems or any other concerns about your teeth/smile, give us a call at (818) 629-1981. We can schedule an appointment with you to set up the smile you’ve always wanted through a phone call or a message at our site.

Advantages of Invisalign in Toluca Lake

When it comes to having your best smile, it’s about the journey as well as the destination. The old braces, the ones you see in TV shows and movies from the 80s and 90s, where a character had some strange metal device in their mouth that everyone laughed at, did often give someone a better smile. Of course, they had to go through a lot to achieve that smile. Today, braces technology has advanced so far. The kinds of braces we have today, like Invisalign, are far beyond what could be imagined just a few short years ago. In this article, we’ll cover some of what makes the advantages of Invisalign in Toluca Lake so appealing. Then, we’ll cover what that means for people of all ages.

Our Invisalign in Toluca Lake

There are few more perfectly named products in the world today than Invisalign. It does exactly what it sounds like it does: it aligns your teeth, invisibly. No one will see the Invisalign while it’s in your mouth. What makes it so powerful is that people will definitely notice how much better your teeth and smile will look. They don’t come by the name “Invisalign” lightly: these really are virtually invisible. You can go out and live your life while your perfect smile fits into place. The days of having so much metal in your mouth are over. That’s the power of Invisalign: you don’t have to put everything on pause so that you can get your smile. Live your life until it arrives: the journey as well as the destination.

Easier to Care for

What’s so great about Invisalign is that it works around your life; you don’t have to alter yours to fit around it. Consider, when you want to take Invisalign out, you can. It’s that simple. You don’t need to go through a whole process and call in a professional or something – just take them out. Then, you can do what you need to do: brush your teeth, brush the Invisalign aligners, and then put them back in. Invisalign works with your life, not against it. You don’t have to worry about them all the time. They’re strong and removable so that when you want to take them out, you can.

Comfortable, Too

One of the main knocks on the old metal braces is that they have so much potential to cause pain. After all, the inside of your mouth is a sensitive place. When you put a few hunks of metal in there, the potential for irritation and pain is pretty high. If you’ve ever heard metal braces, then you know how there could be cutting, scraping and worse all along your gums at pretty much any time. Of course, as Invisalign isn’t metal, there’s no real chance of that happening. There are no sharp edges or hard materials, so nothing is going to cut against your gums or anything like that. With Invisalign, they’re so comfortable; you may actually forget that they’re in your mouth.

Freedom to Live your Life

In addition to Invisalign, we also have Invisalign Teen. No matter which of these models and makes you choose, you’ll have the kind of freedom to do what you want to do. Whether you want to go out for the football team, or you want to play Turkey Day football in the yard with your relatives, Invisalign gives you the freedom to do that. You can even take them out if you’d like, before the game starts. Should you be on the softball team or just someone who likes going out to play catch, you can take out Invisalign or keep them in.

Of course, physical activities are just part of the freedom that Invisalign affords you. You’re also free to eat the foods that you want to eat, too. Again, the versatility of Invisalign comes up so big here. When you want to take them out, do so. After all, eating a great meal with friends and family isn’t going to keep you from getting the smile you’ve always wanted. As soon as the meal’s over and you’ve thoroughly brushed your teeth, just put the Invisalign back in. It really is that simple.

Maybe the most important service that Invisalign provides is that it makes the journey towards getting the smile that you’ve always wanted less arduous. It’s not difficult to get a great smile anymore. You don’t have to suffer along the way, there’s nothing left to dread. Invisalign is just one of the many great ways that we can help you get the smile that you always wanted here at Dr. Bita’s. Come in for a free consultation. You’ll sit down with Dr. Bita and she’ll figure out what the right option for you is. Just give us a call at (818) 629-1981 or go to our site.

Our Tarzana Orthodontist Services

Tarzana is a special community. Los Angeles and Southern California are large areas that are made up of small, tightly knit and unique communities. We’re proud to be in Tarzana. To that end, we want to be members of the community for a long time. Almost all of us have roots here and grew up in the area. Tarzana is home. That’s why we offer so many orthodontics services all at reasonable prices. When you come here, (like it says on our site) we treat patients like our extended family because, well, if you’re in Tarzana, you are part of our extended family. In this blog, we’ll go over what our Tarzana orthodontist services are and how they can help Tarzana.

Dr. Bita, Tarzana Orthodontist

Everyone wants to have a great smile. Every person we’ve ever run into wants to have a smile that lights up rooms when they enter it. Some people want the smile that makes them that much more confident. Others want a great smile to reach true “movie star” status. We can help patients to achieve both dreams. However, we’ve also run into so many people who think that getting a great smile is impossible, due to their finances. There’s a widespread belief that getting the smile you want is impossible because it’s too expensive. That’s not the case here at Dr. Bita’s. We make sure to offer personalized, individual payment plans.

True Personalized Payment Plans

Too many businesses say they offer “personalized payment plans” and then when you actually inquire about these payment plans, you’ll find that means they have three choices or something equally absurd. We don’t do that here. When we say “personalized payment plans,” that’s exactly what we offer: payment plans that we figure out with you so that you can get your smile. Sometimes, that means flexible monthly payments, other times it means interest-free payments and in yet others, it means no money down plans. Some of our plans combine all three. When you want the smile of a lifetime, we want to be able to give it to you. No one should think they have to hide their smile due to finances.

Your Time is Precious

We want to be able to make your smile beautiful. That being said, many people work long hours. It isn’t always easy (or even possible) to get time off from work because you want to make your smile more radiant. We understand that. That’s why we make sure that our hours fit Tarzana. That’s why we do everything in our power to accommodate our patients. Contact us and we’ll figure out a time that we can meet with you. We specialize in not just great orthodontics services, but convenient appointment times for our patients. Let us figure out a time to work on the smile that works best for you.

Your Smile, Your Care

When you think about it, there are few things more personal than a person’s smile. You want your smile to look great because so many people in your life will see it in the course of a day. So, we endeavor to make your smile look as great as possible. That being said, we understand that our patients are always going to have questions. Part of our job is answering them. We pride ourselves on offering truly patient-driven care. That means that the lines of communication are always open with us. We’re always glad to talk to patients about their smiles and how to make them even better than they are now.

Everyone deserves to have a better smile. That’s true regardless of finances as well as age. Your kids and teens can have better smiles, too. We all want our children to go through lives with as much self-confidence as they can so that they can be happy and healthy. So, we have many treatments that will help kids and teens to have their best smiles. By that same token, some people mistakenly think they’re too old to have their best smile. Many of our treatments for adults can give people who aren’t kids or teens the best smile of their lives as well.

Of course, to offer all of this to Tarzana, Dr. Bita has to be a highly qualified orthodontist. She absolutely is. One of the rare truly board certified orthodontists, Dr. Bita has excelled in the field of orthodontics for many years. That being said, here at Dr. Bita’s Orthodontics Group, we’re always looking for ways to offer our patients even better treatments. We’ve been helping our clients with Invisalign and we’ve discovered new tech that will also help to make our clients’ smiles to be as luminescent as they can be. For more information, check out our site or give us a call at (818) 629-1981.

Clear Braces in Encino and More

Locals (and others) know us for the clear braces in Encino that we offer. However, there’s so much more to Dr. Bita’s Orthodontic Group than just Invisalign. There’s a wide variety of services and treatments we offer to our patients so that they get their best smile ever. That’s true for patients of all ages. Children, teens and adults – having the best smile of your life never goes out of style. In this blog, we’ll go over some of the services that we offer our patients. Additionally, we’ll explain what they do to help your smile look better than ever.

Don’t Forget Clear Braces in Encino

When we said that we had more to offer than just clear braces, it’s important to remember that those braces are some of our most popular services. Of course, “braces” might not be the most accurate way to describe. While Invisalign performs the task of aligning your teeth and giving you your best smile, it’s often seen as an alternative to braces. It’s important to point out that while we offer Invisalign, we also have Invisalign Teen, as well. Giving teens their best smile can be a great way to make sure that their self esteem is high from the very beginning.

Loose of Broken Appliances

We know how much of a problem that can be. The last thing we want is our patients to be in any pain whatsoever. That’s why we make it easy to get a loose or broken appliance fixed. All you have to do is call us promptly during office hours. Then, our team of trained professionals will spring into action to make sure that they can handle your problem. That being said, we strongly recommend that you call instead of just showing up. The preparation time is important. It will actually lead to your problem being fixed sooner than it would if you showed up without having called ahead.

The Right Adult Treatment

There comes a time in the life of many folks when they come to think that the way they are is the only way they’ll ever be. That means that they might think “this is as good as my smile can look” and so forth. That doesn’t have to be true. Here at Dr. Bita’s, we can help you to get that incredible smile at your age. Even if this is the first time you’ve ever tried such a thing, we can be here for you. For many people, they had some kind of braces or retainers in their childhood. But, for these people, in the intervening years, their teeth have drifted quite a bit. We can help put it right.

That being said, there’s great treatment for children, too. “Early Intraceptive Treatment” is exactly what it sounds like: a kind of treatment that starts kids on the road to having their best smile early. Instead of letting their teeth get too out of alignment from an early age, instead this treatment steps into to ensure that their teeth look great from the very beginning. As with all of our treatments, comfort is of the utmost importance. Nothing about the process of better aligning your teeth should be even remotely irritating or unpleasant. We take great pride in making sure that all of our patients can get the most beautiful smile of their lives in the most comfortable, worry-free way possible.

Free Consultations, Personalized Plans

We all want a better smile. You shouldn’t have to choose to see if you can fit one in your budget. We go to great lengths to make sure that whoever wants to get their best smile can do so. To that end, our consultations are 100% free. When you come to us, we work out a payment plan that fits your life. That means it’s something you can afford. We make sure that this plan is perfectly tailored to you and your needs, so that you never have to worry about it. On top of that, each of our payment plans is interest-free. We all deserve a smile that lights up a room.

Some of the best parts of this job are the free consultations. It’s great to sit down with folks and listen to them talk about their smile, hopes and dreams. Then, we get to the exciting part: laying out how we can help them to make that smile become a reality. Often, we find that when we’re explaining to people what we can do, it can take them a moment to believe it, but it’s true. The smile you’ve always wanted doesn’t have to stay a dream. Your best smile is closer than you think. To schedule a free consultation and take the first step towards that smile, check out our site or call us at (818) 629-1981.

Clear Choice for Encino Invisalign

No one wants to have to wear braces. That’s been a fact of dentistry and orthodontics going back quite a few years. So, orthodontists did everything they could to find some better way for patients to get the smiles they wanted. Over the years, one powerful technology became available as way to give patients the smile they always wanted: “Invisalign.” It does exactly what the name suggests it does: it aligns your teeth into your best smile while being completely invisible. We’ve found that even some of our Encino Invisalign patients don’t know everything about how the process works. In this article, we’ll explore how Invisalign works and all that it has to offer.

Our Encino Invisalign

Teeth molds can be, for lack of a better word, pretty gross. There’s nothing fun about having one of those in your mouth for any length of time. You shouldn’t have to go through having one of those just to get the smile of your dreams (as well as the dreams of anyone who might notice your smile). So, Invisalign starts with a “smile scan.” That’s where our Dr. Bita uses the iTero scanner to get a 3D rendering of your teeth. It’s a simple, easy and non-gross process. Better still, it moves fast, too. You don’t want to have to wait any longer than necessary to get your best smile.

A Smile for the Ages

From there, Dr. Bita uses that scan to figure out the best “plan of attack” for your smile. That means looking at that scan to discover the best way to make your smile shine its brightest. Your smile is unique and your own. Invisalign uses data from over five million smiles to chart a course towards you having your best smile. Of course, once Dr. Bita finishes this step, she can show you what your smile will look like. You’ll get to see how beautiful your smile will son b before anyone else gets to.

Best Smile, Best Materials

The use of cutting-edge technology isn’t limited to the mold and the scan. We know how uncomfortable many aligners can be. Braces, retainers and more – too many people have horror stories from using such products (and worse) in the past. The patient’s comfort should always be a priority. Invisalign understands that and so does Dr. Bita. So, Invisalign is made with what’s called “SmartTrack material. That means that the aligner fits your mouth perfectly. “Perfectly” is this context is defined as “it fits the shape of your mouth” as well as “it fits your mouth by feeling natural and normal.” You won’t feel any pain or even irritation from having this in there; in fact, you might just forget that you have it in.

Your Gums, Your Invisalign

We often say “everyone’s smile is different.” That’s true, but it’s important to realize that a person’s smile is actually made up of many parts: the teeth, the jaw, the gums and more. In fact, just as everyone’s smile is different, so too is everyone’s gumline. Your gums are a critical part of your smile even if they’re hidden by your lips most of the time. Additionally, where aligners in the past have caused pain in the mouths of patients, it’s often been in the gumline. So, Invisalign was created in part to be easy on the gumline, too. Each Invisalign aligner is individually trimmed so as to fit everyone’s gumline to a T.

It’s important to remember that Invisalign has so many advantages in addition to just comfort. You don’t have to quit eating your favorite foods just because you have aligners in. By that same token, keeping playing sports, too. You like to run, or play basketball or anything else active you like to do – keep doing it. Invisalign lets you enjoy all those activities and many others. The truth is, when you’re worried about your aligners, you can’t really enjoy life as much as possible. Instead of being concerned “can I do this with my aligners in” just go out and do it.  Invisalign should be invisible to those who look at your mouth and invisible to you, too.

We understand that Invisalign is a big step. This is a new technology for many people in the Tarzana area. So, if you have any questions, we’re glad to answer them. Dr. Bita makes a point to help patients to understand how Invisalign could help them to achieve the best smile they’ve ever had. Of course, Invisalign isn’t the only treatment that Dr. Bita offers. She has several years’ worth of experience in helping people’s smiles to be that much more radiant. To schedule a consultation so that she can begin to find the right method to help your smile, give us a call at (818) 629-1981 or head to our site.

Our Orthodontist, Dr. Bita Is the Best in Tarzana

Tarzana is a special community. Los Angeles and Southern California are large areas that are made up of small, tightly knit and unique communities. We’re proud to be in Tarzana. To that end, we want to be members of the community for a long time. Almost all of us have roots here and grew up in the area. Tarzana is home. That’s why we offer so many orthodontics services all at reasonable prices. When you come here, (like it says on our site) we treat patients like our extended family because, well, if you’re in Tarzana, you are part of our extended family. In this blog, we’ll go over what our orthodontist in the Tarzana area services are and how they can help Tarzana.

Dr. Bita, Tarzana Orthodontist

Everyone wants to have a great smile. Every person we’ve ever run into wants to have a smile that lights up rooms when they enter it. Some people want the smile that makes them that much more confident. Others want a great smile to reach true “movie star” status. We can help patients to achieve both dreams. However, we’ve also run into so many people who think that getting a great smile is impossible, due to their finances. There’s a widespread belief that getting the smile you want is impossible because it’s too expensive. That’s not the case here at Dr. Bita’s. We make sure to offer personalized, individual payment plans.

True Personalized Payment Plans

Too many businesses say they offer “personalized payment plans” and then when you actually inquire about these payment plans, you’ll find that means they have three choices or something equally absurd. We don’t do that here. When we say “personalized payment plans,” that’s exactly what we offer: payment plans that we figure out with you so that you can get your smile. Sometimes, that means flexible monthly payments, other times it means interest-free payments and in yet others, it means no money down plans. Some of our plans combine all three. When you want the smile of a lifetime, we want to be able to give it to you. No one should think they have to hide their smile due to finances.

Your Time is Precious

We want to be able to make your smile beautiful. That being said, many people work long hours. It isn’t always easy (or even possible) to get time off from work because you want to make your smile more radiant. We understand that. That’s why we make sure that our hours fit Tarzana. That’s why we do everything in our power to accommodate our patients. Contact us and we’ll figure out a time that we can meet with you. We specialize in not just great orthodontics services, but convenient appointment times for our patients. Let us figure out a time to work on the smile that works best for you.

Your Smile, Your Care

When you think about it, there are few things more personal than a person’s smile. You want your smile to look great because so many people in your life will see it in the course of a day. So, we endeavor to make your smile look as great as possible. That being said, we understand that our patients are always going to have questions. Part of our job is answering them. We pride ourselves on offering truly patient-driven care. That means that the lines of communication are always open with us. We’re always glad to talk to patients about their smiles and how to make them even better than they are now.

Everyone deserves to have a better smile. That’s true regardless of finances as well as age. Your kids and teens can have better smiles, too. We all want our children to go through lives with as much self-confidence as they can so that they can be happy and healthy. So, we have many treatments that will help kids and teens to have their best smiles. By that same token, some people mistakenly think they’re too old to have their best smile. Many of our treatments for adults can give people who aren’t kids or teens the best smile of their lives as well.

Of course, to offer all of this to an orthodontist in the Tarzana area, Dr. Bita has to be a highly qualified orthodontist. She absolutely is. One of the rare truly board certified orthodontists, Dr. Bita has excelled in the field of orthodontics for many years. That being said, here at Dr. Bita’s Orthodontics Group, we’re always looking for ways to offer our patients even better treatments. We’ve been helping our clients with Invisalign and we’ve discovered new tech that will also help to make our clients’ smiles to be as luminescent as they can be. For more information, check out our site or give us a call at (818) 629-1981.

The Right Orthodontist in the Tarzana Area

“Orthodontist” is one of those words that people hear and aren’t exactly sure what it means. It can seem like a synonym for “dentist” but it isn’t really. To be clear, it’s not dentistry specifically, but rather a specialized kind of dentistry. This particular type of dentistry deals with teeth and jaws that aren’t positioned in the best way. Orthodontics figures out what the best diagnosis for this condition is, then an orthodontist goes about either correcting the position of the teeth and jaws or preventing them from becoming malpositioned. You can find a great ortho in Tarzana here at the Dr. Bita Orthodontic Group. In this blog, we’ll cover some of what we do and the benefits that we offer.

We understand if you read the above paragraph and thought something like: “OK, but what can the right positioning of my teeth and jaws do for me?” They can make all the difference in the world to your smile. That’s primarily what we do here at Dr. Bita’s Orthodontic Group: we make people’s smiles look as great as they can. If you’ve ever thought that your smile could use some work, we can help. Or additionally, we’ve helped many people who were self-conscious about their smile to have the confidence they need to let their smile shine.

Your Smile, Improved

It’s important to point out that no one has an unattractive smile. Really. Everyone’s smile is beautiful and unique, an important component of who you are. However, in our years of experience, we’ve found that many people’s smiles can be improved. Your smile can be made to look better than it ever has while still being your smile. When you hire an orthodontist to improve your smile, it takes what’s already in you and makes it that much better. Everyone has an incredible, radiant smile inside them; we just do a bit of work to let it out.

Gorgeous Smiles for Everyone

Here in southern California, when people hear “make your smile as radiant as possible” they tend to think “surgery that will be way too expensive.” We’ve found that it doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, we’ve made it a priority that everyone who wants a beautiful smile should be able to get one. That means that the last thing we want is for anyone to be unable to have their best smile because of simple finances. So, we offer payment plans for smiles and more. These can be personalized, with interest-free, no money down options so that anyone who wants their best smile can achieve it. To that end, we accept major insurance plans, too.

Personalized Payment, Personalized Treatment

No two smiles are the same. Just walk around your office, or inside a local supermarket. You’ll see so many different kinds of smiles. So, just as no two smiles are the same, neither should any two smile treatment plans. We make sure that your smile treatment is personalized for you and you alone. After all, you’re the only person in the world with your smile. This means that make our treatment plan to fit your smile. We know what’s worked to improve folks’ smiles in the past, and we can apply that experience to making your smile better than ever.

That being said, we aren’t limited to using what’s worked in the past, far from it. In fact, often we make sure to offer our patients the most cutting-edge orthodontic advancements and technology. For many people, they hear “orthodontics” and just think of a poor kid wearing hard metal braces or something. That doesn’t happen here. In fact, we offer many tech advancements like Invisalign, which are clear, soft and almost impossible to detect braces. Those are just one of the many kinds of great new tech that we have to offer.

Of course, to be able to work on people’s mouths, you have to be qualified. Too often, orthodontists really aren’t. Most people can’t believe this, but roughly around 33% of orthodontists have been certified by the board. When you think about it, that’s a wildly low number. Fortunately, Dr. Bita is certified. That certification as a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics means quite a lot. That being said, she never rests on her laurels, always seeking to find new, better ways to treat her patients.

There are many different choices in southern California orthodontists, especially when looking for an ortho in Tarzana. Your smile is too important to be left to someone who’s just trying to figure out what they’re doing or is simply looking to sell you on some kind of braces. For the right kind of orthodontist to keep your smile healthy and radiant, give us a call at (818) 629-1981 or head to our website.
