Adult Orthodontics in Palo Alto
Orthodontics is not just limited to children. Adults now make up about 30-40% of orthodontic patients. Teeth can be moved at any age as long as your gums and the underlying bone structure are in good condition and healthy. We offer a variety of treatments designed for different age groups. Orthodontic treatment at any stage of your life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-confidence.
In addition to transforming your smile, improving the health of your teeth and gums are equally important. Crooked, crowded and misaligned teeth and along with a bad bite can contribute and worsen gum disease, bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of teeth and sometimes jaw and joint (TMD/TMJ) pain.
The new techniques, innovations and appliances in modern orthodontics can effectively reduce discomfort levels, frequency of visits and the treatment time. Your options for adult braces may include metal braces, translucent braces, and clear aligners such as Invisalign™.
During your complimentary initial examination, we will be able to determine the best possible approach for your individual needs. Please contact Pristine Orthodontics so that we can help you improve your best asset – your smile!
