It's Never Too Late for a Gorgeous New Smile

Many people think of orthodontic treatment as something only kids get, and while the majority of our patients are children and adolescents, you'd be surprised to know just how common orthodontic treatment is among adults. In fact, about a quarter of our patients are adults! Adult orthodontic treatment is steadily growing in popularity, and adults all over San Jose are discovering the powerful impact of a new smile. And, thanks to advances in orthodontic technology, it's never been easier to achieve.  

The Benefits of Adult Orthodontics

A straighter, healthier, and more beautiful smile comes with a variety of benefits – and they aren't just cosmetic. For starters, straighter teeth are easier to keep clean, helping to prevent tooth decay and protect your teeth well into old-age. In addition, misaligned teeth can contribute to uneven tooth wear, jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain, headaches, and even gum and bone loss, all of which orthodontic treatment can help prevent. Finally, a new smile provides a psychological benefit: you'll experience a boost of confidence, happiness, and self-esteem radiating through virtually every aspect of your personal and professional life.

Adult Orthodontic Treatment Options in San Jose

We're proud to offer a wide variety of orthodontic treatment options from our San Jose office, and we work with our patients to customize treatment to fit their unique lifestyles. Modern braces are thinner, lighter, and more comfortable than ever before, and advances in the precision of orthodontic treatment mean you'll need to wear braces for less time to achieve a beautiful smile. In addition to traditional metal braces, we also offer Damon braces, which use self-ligating brackets to create a more low-profile appearance while also enhancing comfort and cutting down on treatment times.

Clear Orthodontic Treatment for Adults

In addition to the methods discussed above, we also offer a variety of clear, discreet options for our adult patients. Each method is different, and each comes with its own unique benefits:

  • Damon Clear Braces: Based off the self-ligating Damon braces system, Damon Clear uses the same technology but with a clear ceramic composite material. This makes Damon Clear braces far more discreet in appearance, providing a more comfortable, attractive treatment option for our adult patients that's still equipped to handle even the most severe orthodontic conditions.

  • Lingual Braces: Lingual braces work the same way as traditional braces and are still made from stainless steel, but they're completely invisible. Why? Because they're mounted to the inside (tongue side) of the teeth, making them impossible to see from the outside! This is a great option for adults who need to prioritize their physical appearance and aren't as worried about convenience.

  • Invisalign: The Invisalign System eliminates brackets and wires entirely, using a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. Invisalign is virtually invisible when worn, and because you remove the aligners to eat, drink, brush, and floss, you can still enjoy all your favorite foods and maintaining oral hygiene is a breeze! Invisalign is discreet and convenient, offering a great all-around option for adult patients.

  • Clear Aligners: Utilizing the same methods as Invisalign, our clear aligner treatment can offer all the same benefits with a shorter treatment time and a reduced cost!
