Options for Orthodontics in San Diego, CA

M&M Dental Care is a highly rated orthodontics and dental services provider in San Diego, CA. Our specialist, Dr. Maricela Murillo, has training in the Myobrace System, an innovative and less invasive alternative to traditional metal braces. Our office consistently receives 5-star ratings because of Dr. Murillo’s superior dental care as well as the warm and welcoming environment.

The Myobrace System is a preventive approach that addresses the underlying causes of crooked teeth. Children often don’t need braces or tooth extractions if we allow their teeth to follow natural patterns of growth and development.

The Myobrace System can properly align children’s jaws and straighten their teeth. It can also improve overall health by encouraging proper tongue position and swallowing. This treatment, which works best for children aged 3-15, includes a series of removable orthodontic appliances that a child wears overnight.

After an initial office consultation, Dr. Murillo will recommend a series of corrective appliances that will expand the arch while correcting the tooth and jaw positioning. We also introduce techniques that teach children how to breathe through their noses and swallow correctly. These methods allow ample space for the jaws to grow to their full size, giving individual teeth enough room to come in straight, naturally. This process frequently helps children avoid the need for corrective braces.

Waiting until permanent teeth are already in a misaligned position can sometimes have a damaging effect and lead to a poor outcome. Dr. Murillo evaluates each patient and explores all options, based upon each person’s particular condition. With early intervention and proper nutrition habits, at the end of the Myobrace treatment, patients will be able to expect straighter teeth and improved breathing.

"Amazing staff; friendly; best numbing shots I have ever had probably because she numbs the gums first with lidocaine gel of some kind? Have questions or want information about procedures or insurance the staff will tell you right away or find out for you. I have had excellent referrals out to other specialists and those specialists are impressed by D.D.S Maricela murrilo’s work as well."
