Types of Treatment
In Pasadena, dental technology is improving all the time and you’ll always get the most comfortable and effective treatments at Pasadena Orthodontics.
Dr. Chan, Dr. Babaan, and the team at Pasadena Orthodontics promise to provide you with the most up-to-date treatment options around.
Straightening Your Smile
Dr. Rozheh Babaan and Dr. Milton Chan can successfully treat many dental issues for your child or yourself.
By pairing state-of-the-art technology with our understanding of the movement and growth of the teeth and jaws, Dr. Chan and Dr. Babaan can successfully treat many dental issues, including:
- Crowded teeth
- Gaps between teeth

Braces & More
Most patients we treat at Pasadena Orthodontics choose traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth. Metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment, but you have other options, too.
After your first free consultation, Dr. Chan and Dr. Babaan will talk to you about which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals. We’re proud to offer multiple treatment options, including:
- Clear braces
- Self-Ligating braces
- Lingual braces (braces that are attached to the back of the teeth)
- Clear aligners
- And more!
Fixed Vs. Removable Appliances
At Pasadena Orthodontics, we believe patients should be well-informed when it comes to their treatment.
It’s important to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances. Fixed appliances, like braces, are attached to your teeth and aren’t taken off until you complete your treatment. Removable appliances, like Invisalign’s clear aligner system, are worn about 20-22 hours a day but are easily removed when eating or playing sports.
Besides the obvious differences, Dr. Chan and Dr. Babaan use Invisalign aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems, such as crowding or spacing issues. At Pasadena Orthodontics, we generally use fixed appliances for more comprehensive and serious and treatment.
