Dr. Daisy Song focuses on overall facial balance and esthetically pleasing results in her orthodontic treatment.
For many patients, even those with perfectly straight teeth, their smile may be less than perfect because their face is not harmonious. When the patient’s jaws do not have normal proportions—for instance, are asymmetrical, too big, too small, too long, too short, crooked, or distorted–not only will this compromise a beautiful smile, but it also may cause TMJ problems. In many cases, by addressing the dentofacial orthopedic stage of the orthodontic treatment to improve or restore facial balance, the orthodontist can provide more benefits the patient.
Also, many people do not understand why they do not have a perfect smile, even with their perfectly straight teeth and balanced faces. Often, it is because the size, shape, or color of the teeth is not right. For example, if the teeth are too big, too small, odd shaped, square, slanted, uneven-edged, too long, too short, etc., the smile may be less than desirable.
Dr. Song does a thorough checkup and evaluation for each patient. She gives them the best esthetically enhanced smile through specialized planning that compensates for individual differences and utilizes advanced science and technology, e.g., TAD, Propel, and so on. She enhances the overall beauty of each patient’s smile aiming for the most pleasing and healthy smile possible.
In addition, Dr. Song extensively educates the patients for the maintenance of their results with support and recommendations to keep their smiles healthy and gorgeous.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that all the children have their first checkup by age 7. Early planning and promotion of healthy habits can go a long way toward maintaining a beautiful smile and healthy body for a lifetime.
