Why You Should Pursue Braces?
For most people, a beautiful smile is the most obvious benefit of Orthodontics. For Dr. Dougherty, a proper fit and function of your bite, an unrestricted airway, and a healthy smile are the most important aspects.
Orthodontic appliances can be made of metal, ceramic, or plastic. They may be removable or they may be brackets bonded to the teeth. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to a corrected position.
Treatment time typically ranges from one to three years, depending on the growth of the patient's mouth/face and the severity of the problem. Patients grow at different rates and the duration of treatment varies. The patient's diligent use of any prescribed rubber bands or headgear is an important factor in achieving the most efficient treatment.

Dr. Harry Dougherty and his staff have been incredible. We have been going to Dr. Dougherty’s Sherman Oaks office on and off for over 8 years. His office was recommended by our kids’ pediatric dentist. At our initial consultation, Dr. Dougherty stated that our daughter’s orthodontis work would be 2 phases. Based on his calculations, he determined that she would need a maxillofacial surgery. As Dr. Dougherty had predicted, multiple maxillofacial surgeons reconfirmed his recommendation to perform the surgery. Dr. Dougherty’s pre-surgery work was spot on. The maxillofacial surgeon was amazed at how precise the teeth were placed. It made surgery and post surgery work minimal. We highly recommend Dr. Dougherty for all orthodontis work.
