Orthodontic treatment is highly beneficial for patients of all ages, including adults. In fact, the American Association of Orthodontists states that one in five orthodontic patients is over the age of 21. At Burlingame Smile Studio, adults will definitely feel right at home. A full 50% of our orthodontic patients are adults! Treatment in adult life can dramatically improve your overall appearance and your self confidence.
Equally important is improving your oral health. Orthodontic treatment will reduce your risk of:
- Bone deterioration
- Tooth decay
- Abnormal tooth wear
- Jaw joint pain
Dr. Lee can help you adjust crooked, crowded, or widely spaced teeth with orthodontics for adults. Adults everywhere are taking advantage of orthodontic treatment. You, too, can achieve your dream smile with the help of Dr. April Lee.
What Orthodontic Options Do I Have as an Adult?
Many adults have avoided starting orthodontics because they are not comfortable with the idea of bulky metal braces. Fortunately, Dr. April Lee provides several sophisticated braces options, including:
Invisalign: Invisalign braces consist of a custom-made series of clear aligners. Say goodbye to food restrictions, lip and cheek irritation, and train track braces. You can maintain a sophisticated look and advanced comfort with Invisalign braces for adults.
In-Ovation System Braces: We know you don’t want to wear braces forever. In-Ovation System Braces are self-ligating brackets that can reduce discomfort and accelerate treatment time.
Self-Ligating Braces: Because In-Ovation System Braces are self-ligating, in addition to reducing discomfort and accelerating your treatment time, they can reduce the frequency of checkup appointments typically needed with the older “twin style” brackets. Self-ligating braces also come in both Metal and Ceramic styles for enhanced esthetics should your specific orthodontic case need to include braces for some duration of time.
Here at Burlingame Smile Studio, we also provide non-braces orthodontic options like retainers and appliances.
