Don’t Settle For Crooked Teeth – Get More Information on Braces for Adults
It is never too late to get braces! Today, many adults are finally getting around to straightening their teeth. Walnut Creek Orthodontist, Dr. Iris Erdell offers many advanced options for braces for adults.
Why Get Braces as an Adult?
Dental treatments and procedures are evolving and currently we are able to offer many alternatives to traditional metal braces. Many adults find these orthodontic solutions more favorable as they prefer to fix their crooked smile in a conservative manner. However, adults often opt for traditional braces as well and we are happy to oblige. Additionally, not everyone has the opportunity to receive orthodontic care when they are younger so they are choosing to get the work done now that they have more financial freedom or dental insurance. In addition to creating a more picture perfect smile, straight teeth also offer health benefits including:
- Reduction in general tooth decay as teeth are appropriately spaced
- Decreased likelihood of developing periodontal disease
- Decreased likelihood of tooth injury
- Reduction in digestive disorders
Dr. Erdell, has a passion for creating aesthetically pleasing smiles as well as giving patients their healthiest mouth possible. Below are some of the options we offer adults looking for braces:
Traditional Braces – Metal brackets and elastics have worked for centuries. Many adults opt for the tried and true option of traditional braces.
Clear Braces – Clear braces are a variation of traditional braces. They offer the same results but get there using clear brackets and tooth colored elastics. This clear option for braces often is not noticeable at a few feet away. Many adults love this choice for braces.
Invisalign® - Invisalign treatment is getting more and more popular but Dr. Erdell has been offering it since 2001. For many orthodontic issues this treatment works great! It offers clear, removable aligners and often times a short duration of therapy. To learn more, check out our dedicated page about this treatment.
