Coming from Los Angeles to Downey isnt the best location for me however it was all worth it when I went in to see Dr Thomas Gibson. He is officially my orthodontist and my resource for braces.. albeit metal and clear. Office and staff were wonderful, clinic has an amazing atmosphere, beyond friendly, service, prices, people.. the place to be. I loved the work and the people and Im sold. Fantastic job on teeth and my smile 🦷 😊

Top Rated Orthodontist in Downey CA

Dr.  Thomas Gibson, D.D.S., M.S and the American Association of Orthodontists recommends an initial orthodontic evaluation should occur no later than age 7 or at the first sign of orthodontic problems. Early evaluation provides a greater opportunity for more effective treatment and early detection of potential problems. Many of the problems that are easily corrected at a young age cannot be fully corrected if treatment is delayed. Dr. Gibson will inform you about your child’s dental development, treatment options, and the best timing. Your child’s comfort is a priority. We will make every effort to ensure their experience is a pleasant one. There are many different types of orthodontic appliances: Clear Braces, Miniature Braces, and Invisalign® are commonly used to straighten teeth. Orthopedic appliances are also used to help improve the facial growth.

Orthodontic specialists receive an additional two to three years of specialized education beyond dental school to learn the proper way to align and straighten teeth. Only those who successfully complete this formal education may call themselves “orthodontic specialists,” and only orthodontic specialists can be members of the American Association of Orthodontists.

Two-phase orthodontic treatment consists of two separate times when a child receives orthodontic treatment. A first phase of treatment is done while the child still has many or most of their primary or “baby” teeth. A second phase takes place when the child has most or all of their permanent teeth. Braces may or may not be used during a first phase of treatment. Other appliances (the name used for braces and other devices for orthodontic correction) may be used.
