    While many people think that braces are just for teenagers, the fact is that no one is too old to improve their oral health and the beauty of their smile. Today, about 1 in 4 patients that we see are adults who’ve decided for a variety of reasons to take the step to improve their smiles or even to realign their smiles. Just remember, it is never too late to improve your health or smile!

    Why Would Adults Need Braces?

    Some adults never had the opportunity to undergo orthodontic treatment when they were younger to correct problems like crooked, crowded teeth or any spaces between teeth. When these types of problems exist, they result in tooth decay, gum disease, headaches, and speaking or chewing problems. Some adults that we see in our office have previously worn braces when they were younger, but they neglected to wear their retainers after their braces came off which resulted in their teeth shifting back into or near their original positions. Some of the adults we see choose to come in for treatment because they’ve heard about all of the many great orthodontic treatment options there are today geared toward adults like clear braces and the Invisalign System that may not have previously been available to them.

    Braces We Offer Which Cater To Adults

    Our practice is proud to use the best techniques and appliances in the industry to reduce discomfort, decrease the frequency of visits and shorten treatment time.
    The types of braces we offer that adults appreciate include:

    The types of braces we offer that adults appreciate include:

    • Invisalign
      The Invisalign System consists of a series of clear, removable aligners that are custom-made for each patient using advanced 3D imaging technology. When you’re wearing Invisalign, most people won’t even realize you’re in treatment as the translucent aligners are virtually invisible. Plus, since the aligners are designed to be removed when eating and when brushing & flossing, your orthodontic treatment will never get in the way. Invisalign is a very convenient and discreet way to improve your smile without the use of any metal wires or brackets.
    • INBRACE
      INBRACE was born from an unprecedented collaboration between the top research programs at the Ostrow School of Dentistry and Viterbi School of Engineering at the University of Southern California, both recognized as top national programs. Based on the fundamental principles of Orthodontics, INBRACE has been received by top academic orthodontic programs, and thought leaders in Orthodontics. INBRACE is proudly designed and manufactured in Southern California.
    • Clear Braces
      Clear braces are placed on the front side of the teeth like conventional metal braces. These braces feature brackets, which are tooth-colored, making them far less conspicuous than metal braces that show. Clear braces help hide the fact that you’re in orthodontic treatment by blending in with your teeth. These braces were designed with aesthetics in mind and they are an excellent option for adults who don’t want to wear a mouthful of metal.
