Summertime Invisalign for Your Teen

Summer is here and school is out! It’s a busy time for orthodontists, since families typically have more free time to juggle appointments and medical services.

Summer is a great time to get your teens started in Orthodontic care, not only because you have time now, but because it gives your child time to adjust to wearing orthodontic equipment before returning to school.

Read on to learn more about Invisalign, and if it may be right for your teen.

What is Invisalign?

Back in the day, metal braces were the first treatment option for misaligned teeth, and until fairly recently, the only option. Now we can offer different types of braces, including Invisalign® Clear Aligners.

Invisalign works best for mild to moderate misalignment cases. If your teen has a more severe case, metal braces may be a better option. Your orthodontist will do a careful analysis of your childs case before determining a treatment plan.

Invisalign consists of clear plastic aligners that are specially designed to fit perfectly over your child’s teeth. They slowly shift the teeth into their desirable positions. As one set of aligners finishes their job, a new set of aligners will arrive to replace them. Often you can arrange for the aligners to be shipped to you, minimizing your trips to the office.

Is Invisalign Right for My Teen?

Quite often parents are pleasantly surprised with their teens performance with this treatment option. Compliance is really important with Invisalign-they only work when you wear them!

They can be taken out for the purpose of eating and cleaning your teeth, but must be replaced as soon as possible. They should be worn for up to 22 hours a day in order to work effectively.

If your teenager is fairly well disciplined, this shouldn’t be a problem. Many parents report being surprised and pleased with their kids compliance. In the age of selfies and social media, the threat of replacing them with chunky metal braces often does the trick!

For more severe cases of malocclusion, Invisalign might not be appropriate. You and your orthodontist can determine what treatment is best for your teen.

Can Kids get Invisalign?

It’s a great time to be an orthodontist. Technology is improving so rapidly that it’s almost hard to keep up!

Dr. Greenberg is passionate about her career and she loves working with kids. That’s why she’s on the forefront of integrating Phase One Invisalign treatment for kids into her practice.

If your child is in need of orthodontics, and you dread the thought of braces, read on to learn more about Invisalign for kids!

Invisalign for Kids and Pre-Teens

Metal braces can be a pain. They’re a great for some though, and for decades they were the dominant force in orthodontic treatment for kids.

Technology is improving and Invisalign aligners are becoming more common. For years they’ve been geared towards adults and teens because they are practically invisible, and less embarrassing and tedious to wear as a working professional.

They have other qualities that benefit not just adults, but anyone who wears them. That’s why it’s so exciting that they’re becoming accessible and sensible for kids to wear as well.

Braces require a lot of maintenance for the wearer, such as keeping them clean and making sure the elastics are kept on. And let’s face it- kids aren’t the best at compliance!

Invisalign aligners don’t require as much cleaning, since you can take them out for eating and brushing your teeth. And they consist of less hardware, so there is less likelihood of breakages that require emergency trips to the orthodontist.

There are no food restrictions with Invisalign, another thing that younger patients have a hard time adjusting to, and the invasiveness of Invisalign in the mouth is very minimal compared to braces. Overall, Invisalign aligners are more streamlined and less tedious than braces for many people, especially kids.

Pioneering Phase One Invisalign

Dr. Greenberg has been a huge proponent of Invisalign for over a decade. She holds the impressive Diamond Status title as an Invisalign provider, and has completed hundreds of successful Invisalign cases in her career. It makes sense that she would be one of the first doctors to successfully integrate kids cases into her Invisalign practice.

Dr. Greenberg firmly believes that early evaluations for kids are imperative in order to avoid long term problems. “It is best for your kids to be evaluated around 7-8 years old before the permanent teeth are established”.

Early detection of potential problems can eliminate more complicated (and costly!) procedures in the future. The advent of Invisalign for kids is a fantastic new opportunity for families to receive better, easier, less invasive orthodontic treatment.

Schedule Your Appointment Today!

Dr. Greenberg has a holistic approach to orthodontics. She believes in treating the whole patient, not just their mouths. Every patient is different, and has different needs and expectations.  For many patients, that means respecting and understanding that families lead hectic lives.

If you’re a family with more than one member undergoing orthodontic treatment, look no further! Dr. Greenberg and her office work tirelessly to ensure that the whole family can get their appointments in at the same time. There’s enough juggling to be done without having to orchestrate various trips to the orthodontist for various patients.

Dr. Greenberg serves patients all over the San Gabriel Valley, from Altadena and Pasadena and all the surrounding communities. If your kid is ready for orthodontic treatment, give us a call today-we truly look forward to working with you!

The Fotona Laser-A Non-Surgical Approach to Orthodontics

A wonderful thing about being an Orthodontist is getting to use all of the latest and best technological advances!

Surgery is scary for many, and it’s great being able to offer my patients the opportunity to fix orthodontic problems without the using surgery. Fear of surgery prevents many people from receiving the care they need to ensure their oral health. By offering non-invasive Fotona laser treatments, we can avoid surgery and improve the quality of our patient’s lives.

Fotona NightLase for Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea is a condition which causes the sufferer to struggle with breathing during sleep. It can wake you up several hundred times a night without you even being aware of it. But your partner probably is- because most notably it causes snoring. This can be disruptive to the snorer and their partners.

There are treatment options available for sleep apnea. The CPAP machine is the most well-known treatment. It is apparatus that connects a breathing machine, through tubes, into the airway of the patient. It forces air into the lungs, which diminishes the sleep disruptions.

The machines can be loud and cumbersome though, not to mention expensive. People often have trouble falling asleep while being hooked up to it.

Other options include custom made mouth guards, or surgery. The mouth guards can also hinder sleep, and people try to avoid invasive surgery, which can involve bleeding and scarring.

It is very exciting to offer the Fotana NightLase to my patients. It is a non-invasive option that can last for up to a year. The procedure is simple and effective, but still very gentle on the patient’s mouth.

The Fotona laser works by applying lasers to the soft tissues of the palate. This contracts the collagen, making for a firmer palate and therefore less obstruction in the airway.

The procedure is done 3 times over the course of six weeks. The affects last for up to a year, and the treatment can be repeated. It is safe, gentle, and highly effective. Best of all, it involves no invasive surgery, chemicals, or annoying breathing machines.

Fotona Laser for Tooth Whitening

Another exciting aspect of the Fotona laser is its ability to aid in tooth whitening procedures. It is the quickest, gentlest, and least invasive of teeth whitening options currently available.

It uses a unique wavelength (Er:YAG) that has a high absorption rate in water. This means the gel used for whitening your teeth does not heat up enough to cause damage to your tooth or the pulp.

It is extremely effective, minimally invasive, and causes no damage to your teeth or the pulp of your teeth.

Cutting Edge Technology in our Office

We pride ourselves for being able to offer our patients non-invasive and painless treatment options for their orthodontic needs. We know that any surgery can be scary and painful, and many people avoid it altogether.

You deserve to have a healthy and functional mouth and smile! If you’re suffering with Sleep Apnea and snoring, and are hesitant to purchase a CPAP machine, or simply want a brighter whiter smile without any damage to your teeth, make an appointment with our office today!

We offer free consultations to our first time patients. Call and schedule today at (626) 798-7645. I am Board Certified and have over 25 years of experience. My number one priority is providing successful treatments, with the maximum level of comfort possible to all of my patients. Our office is located in Altadena, and we serve patients from Pasadena and all over the San Gabriel Valley.

Treating TMJ Jaw Pain-Without Surgery

There is nothing quite so debilitating as chronic pain, and TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) and Jaw Pain can be detrimental to your health and well-being. When it hurts to chew, or speak, or even swallow, the pain can be depressing and debilitating.

It’s difficult to say exactly how many people experience TMJ pain, but some have estimated that up to 10 Million Americans suffer from this condition. It seems that more women than men experience TMJ pain.

Dr. Vicki Greenberg effectively treats TMJ jaw pain using non-surgical and non-invasive techniques. If you’re suffering from TMJ or pain in your jaw, read on to learn more about treatment for yourself or a loved one.

What Causes TMJ Jaw Pain?

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) acts like a sliding hinge, connecting your jawbone to your skull. There is a joint on each side of your jaw. Disorders in the TMJ cause pain and discomfort in the muscles and tissues surrounding that joint. This is what people are referring to when they complain of TMJ.

Several factors can contribute to TMJ pain. Injuries to your teeth or jaw are the most obvious causes of TMJ pain.

Often TMJ is caused by subtler factors, such as grinding your teeth. Misaligned teeth can contribute to TMJ, and so can excessive gum-chewing, poor posture, stress, and arthritis.

Regardless of the cause, TMJ pain can become debilitating and unbearable. There are options for treating TMJ that don’t include invasive surgery.

Complications of Surgery for TMJ and Jaw Pain

Surgery of any kind is a risk, with the potential for complications and further damage to your body becoming more extreme depending on the nature of the surgery. Dr. Greenberg prefers to avoid surgery whenever possible.

Internal bleeding of the maxillary artery may be a concern with TMJ surgery. Diligent monitoring of the neurovascular system during surgery doesn’t always guarantee that complications won’t arise. In severe and complicated cases, the TMJ nerve may become permanently damaged as the result of surgery.

Although infection is the rarest complication of TMJ surgery, it is undoubtedly the most dangerous. Infections occur in a mere 2% of these types of surgeries, but the repercussions can be lethal for a patient.

Non-Surgical Treatment for TMJ and Jaw Pain

Dr. Greenberg has evaluated many patients for jaw pain, and has had great success with gentle and conservative treatments. She firmly believes in treating the “whole patient”, and not just the specific problem. For many people surgery should be avoided. Dr. Greenberg never turns to surgery as a first resort, and attempts to treat many ailments non-invasively.

Dr. Greenberg uses advanced technologies for all of her procedures, and she has had great success using the Fotona Laser to treat pain in TMJ cases.

Dr. Greenberg is adept at creating non-invasive orthodontic devices to treat structural causes of TMJ pain.

If you or a loved one is suffering from jaw pain or TMJ, and are trying to avoid surgery or other invasive treatment options, give our office a call today. Dr. Vickie Greenberg is compassionate, genuinely cares about her patients and their lifestyles, and will use her 25 successful years of experience to get you out of pain, and into a long-lasting and healthy smile! Call today at (626) 798-7645, and start living free of pain!

Pasadena’s Leading Sleep Therapy Specialist Dr. Vickie Greenberg

Pasadena Orthodontist Dr. Vickie Greenberg, specializes in TMJ Jaw Pain and Sleep Therapy. Issues with sleeping can be catalyst for a diminished healthy lifestyle, and that is why she has made sleep therapy a focal point of her orthodontics practice.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep Apnea is a condition which causes difficulties in breathing during sleep. The sufferer can wake up several times during the night, sometimes 30 times an hour without being aware of it, and the condition is often accompanied by snoring.

Sleep Apnea can be detrimental to your health. The patient isn’t often aware of these sleep disruptions, as they happen so quickly. These disruptions become more obvious the next day, since they lead to drowsiness, irritability, difficulties with concentrating, and other life interruptions caused by constant fatigue.

Waking up several hundred times a night, even if you’re unaware of it, can cause your blood pressure to rise, which can lead to more serious consequences, such as heart attack or stroke.

It’s unhealthy to have your breathing interrupted like this. Snoring can be difficult for a relationship, and the repercussions can cause many undesirable consequences to your lifestyle and health. Fortunately there are a number of treatment options available for Sleep Apnea.

Dr. Vickie Greenberg prefers to look at the big picture in her Sleep Apnea cases. As with any health problem, every case is different.  She believes that different treatments work for different people, and is excited about some new options available, like the Fotona Laser.

Treatment Options for Sleep Apnea

The most commonly known treatment option for sleep apnea is the CPAP machine. It is a mask and apparatus that you wear while you sleep. It works by increasing the air pressure in your throat so that the airway doesn’t collapse upon exhaling, which is what causes the snoring.

CPAP machines can be quite effective for snoring and sleep apnea. Some people find the apparatus cumbersome and noisy, and it may difficult to fall asleep with the mask and machine attached. For light sleepers, this solution may not be a solution at all, but more of a hindrance. They can be very effective for those who can adjust to them however.

Another treatment option is a fitted mouthpiece, also to be worn during sleep. They work by repositioning the jaw or tongue so that the airway is not obstructed. These can be effective also. They may be more desirable than the cumbersome mask and tube and machine that a CPAP consists of, and may be sufficient for many cases.

A newer approach to treating Sleep Apnea is the Fotona Laser. This technology is cutting edge, and Dr. Greenberg utilizes it for several procedures in her practice. This is a non-surgical “rejuvenating” laser, which tightens the tissue in the palate by enhancing collagen. This widens out the airway, lessening the source of the airway obstruction that causes the snoring.

Which Option is Best for You

Dr. Greenberg looks at each Sleep Apnea cases individually. Every patient is different, with different lifestyles, and different consequences as a result of their Sleep Apnea. A treatment that works beautifully for one patient may not be desirable or effective for another. And every patient deserves the personalized and unique care that is necessary to improve the quality of their sleep and lives.

There is no reason to keep suffering with difficulties in sleeping! Snoring can be difficult for entire families, and so can constant fatigue, which leads to other health issues.

If you have been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea, or think you may have a sleep Apnea Diagnosis, make an appointment with Dr. Vickie Greenberg today! She offers free consultations to first time visitors. She is located in Pasadena, and serves patients from Altadena, and all over the San Gabriel Valley. So call today at (626) 798-7645, and start sleeping better tomorrow!

The i-Cat FLX-Superior Imaging Equipment

One of the things that sets Dr. Vickie Greenberg apart from other Orthodontists is her superior technology. Dr. Geenberg specializes in non-invasive orthodontic techniques to treat everything from TMJ to Sleep Apnea, and the best technology makes that simpler and easier.

Her latest acquisition is the i-Cat FLX. It’s cutting-edge technology that helps to evaluate and diagnose even the most complicated cases with speed and efficiency. Read on to learn more about how this technology makes life easier for Dr. Greenberg’s patients!

Airway Orthodontics and The i-Cat FLX

Airway orthodontics is a subfield of orthodontic treatment that helps to improve the overall health of each patient, of any age group. It focuses on the body’s oxygen intake in connection with the structure of the facial structure, including the mouth, jaws, and teeth-hence the name, Airway Orthodontics.

The i-Cat FLX is imaging technology that produces 3D pictures of the entire mouth structure. Dr. Greenberg can see what’s going on behind the scenes in your mouth-from your teeth down to the structure of your jaw.

What’s really great about this technology is it makes it easier for you to see and understand what’s happening, during your initial exam up until the final day of treatment. You don’t have to just take your orthodontists word for it anymore!

Sleep Apnea and The i-Cat FLX

Sleep Apnea is commonly detected as a snoring problem. Problems with heavy snoring go far beyond keeping your partner up at night-although that can definitely be a problem! Snoring can affect your entire lifestyle. When you snore heavily, you’re not getting sufficient oxygen for restful productive sleep, which can lead to fatigue, lack of focus, and moodiness.

The i-Cat FLX can project images of not only your teeth and jaw, but your nasal passages all the way down to your throat. This advantage makes it easier to diagnose and treat Sleep Apnea more quickly and efficiently than ever before.

TMJ and The i-Cat FLX

TMJ, or Jaw Pain, is one of those things you don’t really understand until you’ve suffered through it yourself. TMJ can be a hindrance at best, and almost debilitating at its worst. It can hinder your ability to eat, and the pain can be distracting and make life difficult to manage.

TMJ and Jaw Pain can be caused by countless factors, and the i-Cat FLX can detect these issues more efficiently and accurately than other imaging technology. The images are clear, precise and detailed, making it easier for Dr. Greenberg to create a specific treatment plan for your TMJ, sometimes instantly!

If you’re in need of Airway Orthodontics, then Dr. Vickie Greenberg is the care provider you’ve been looking for! She has over 25 years of experience in the orthodontic field, and she favors a holistic approach in her practice-she treats the whole patient, not just their mouths. She is compassionate, caring, and approachable-but her expertise and professionalism is second to none.

Dr. Greenberg is considered one of the best orthodontists in the San Gabriel Valley. She treats patients of all ages and no case is too complicated. Give us a call today, and let’s get you on the road to optimum orthodontic health!
