The Sammamish plateau has changed in the last few years. The town center project started in 2008 is slowly unfolding. The medical dental building at Sammamish village, next to Sammamish Metropolitan store, has brought many health services to the Sammamish plateau, including orthodontics.
You can find multiple orthodontic offices in Sammamish and Klahanie Issaquah that have been around. Needless to say, dentistry, including orthodontics, has significantly changed, and new patients are looking for modern healthcare services.
Dr. Rooz Khosravi established PORTH (Personalized Orthodontics) in 2017 to bring a unique orthodontic experience to the plateau. His philosophy revolves around customizing orthodontic treatment for every patient, with various treatment options, including digital custom braces or clear aligners (Invisalign). PORTH is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, such as 3D X-ray or 3D printing, to create a modern and amazing experience during orthodontic care. Additionally, PORTH is open in the evenings and on some Saturdays to provide next-level accessibility to orthodontic care on the Sammamish plateau.
Early Orthodontic Treatment for Kids
At PORTH, we screen kids no later than 7 years old for orthodontic needs. Orthodontic problems in kids are categorized into three groups: skeletal problems, such as small jaws; dental problems, like crowding; or habits impacting dental and skeletal development, like thumb sucking.
Early orthodontic treatment is a limited treatment plan lasting around one year. Dentofacial orthopedics or growth modification is the core of pediatric orthodontic care.
Dr. Rooz works with many local pediatric dentists to evaluate kids at their complimentary consultation. Most kids don’t need early orthodontic care after their first visit to our clinic. Dr. Rooz follows a conservative treatment philosophy for kids to avoid unnecessary treatment.
Aligner and Braces Treatment for Teens
Teenagers at PORTH benefit from the cutting-edge technology built into our aligner system. Teens can choose between custom digital braces or PORTH aligners. A limited number of teenagers also opt for lingual braces, a truly cosmetic option that helps avoid challenges with Invisalign. All of these teen patients also enjoy the PORTH 3D printing retainer program.
Esthetic Adult Orthodontic Treatment
Adult patients at PORTH benefit from Dr. Rooz’s expertise in clear aligner treatment (a removable plastic tray) as well as lingual braces. He also provides complex interdisciplinary orthodontic care where we collaborate with several other dental specialists. With all these choices, adults can seek to get the beautiful smiles they always hoped for.
