Adult Braces & Invisalign
Braces aren’t just for kids & teens anymore. The number of adults coming in to our Poway office has been increasing with the knowledge that teeth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. We offer a variety of adult treatments that are designed for different age groups – including adults. A new smile can begin today!
Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, even headaches, and sometimes jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain.
Good news! The new techniques and orthodontic appliances we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time, and may allow you to choose from several options. Your adult treatment options may include metal braces, clear braces or Invisalign and removable appliances. Invisalign has been a very popular alternative to braces for adults due to it’s clear design which enables many people to go about their treatment relatively unnoticed.
During the initial examination, we will be able to determine the best possible orthodontic treatment for your individual needs. During this initial examination, we can outline the treatment plan, time of treatment expected, and the approximate cost.
Many adults agree that the rewards of having an improved smile and increased confidence are worth the investment.
