Tooth alignment constantly changes as gums and bone structure continue to develop and shift with age. Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem as well as the health of your teeth and gums. Crooked teeth and a misaligned bite contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches, and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain. At Mashouf Orthodontics, we offer a variety of treatments that are designed specifically for adults to improve appearance and oral health.
Techniques & Appliances
New techniques and appliances greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, and shorten treatment time. Treatment options include:
- Damon braces: These special "self-ligating" brackets don't require elastic ties, helping to speed up the treatment process and provide more comfort. Damon Clear braces are arguably the most esthetic braces available on the market.
Invisalign: An alternative to braces that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible when worn and completely removable.
- Lingual braces: These are braces that are placed behind the teeth instead of in front of them, making them essentially unnoticeable to others. They offer the advantages of braces without the visibility.
A large percentage of our patients are adults who are seeking a beautiful smile or wanting to improve their oral health.Whether you’re interested in Damon braces, Lingual braces, or Invisalign, you can visit our offices in San Jose, CA to learn more. Contact us today!
